I often wonder why there is so much pain and suffering. I realized that what we need is not homeostasis or a tensionless state. Instead, we need the right amount of tension for change, growth, and development to take place. I had the privilege to journey with people facing different aspects of the human condition (suffering, grief, loss, meaninglessness, etc.) I am often amazed by human determination, courage, and strength in the process toward growth and development as they face life challenges. Life is full of challenges and adversity; it would be a privilege to journey with you toward a meaningful and purpose-driven life.

We all face challenges at different phases in our lives. Perhaps you are feeling stuck and having difficulty finding direction or making a life decision. You may have experienced a loss and need some help to work through the grief. Or you may be struggling with symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression. Sometimes the struggle is related to relationship issues or parenting difficulties.

You are struggling with feelings of stress, overwhelmedness, and stuck-ness that might be new—or you’ve had them as long as you can remember. You might be feeling low, unmotivated, and having a hard time getting back to your ‘usual self'. Your life, career, or relationships just aren't going the way you'd like them to, and you want to create more helpful patterns and experiences. These and other issues (grief, parenting and pregnancy/postpartum) are all things people I see are experiencing and wanting to change. I am fluent in ASL and understand the unique issues clients who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing face.

Are you looking to develop insight into how to change negative patterns of thinking and behaviour in your life? I use cognitive behavioural therapy, which is based on years of research and empirical evidence, to help people get to the roots of their problems and make lasting change. I also integrate mindfulness training into my approach. This involves developing self-compassion, accepting what we cannot control and living in the present moment. I strongly believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, and take a very active role in guiding my clients.

In general I find that as humans, our minds cause us a great deal of suffering. Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.
