“No matter how successful I am, I still feel like a failure. I worry that everyone will find out I’m an imposter, and my accomplishments were all flukes.” Sound familiar? I work with driven, smart, professional women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’. Your inner critic can steal away so many moments of joy and make you lose sight of your true self. Ready to make a change? Therapy can create space for confidence, clarity, self-worth, and genuine fulfillment.

My clients are from diverse backgrounds who have experienced traumatic events that are adversely impacting their personal sense of who they are, their relationships, both personal and professional. The clients are seeking to make sense of their lived experiences and recover their agency and power to live a wholesome life with dignity and respect. My clients usually have a history of intergenerational violence and come to therapy for resolving issues such as historic and current sexual violence, intimate relational violence, trafficking, trauma related to war and conflict, workplace violence, discrimination and harassment.

Who are you and what is it that you seek? These questions are always relevant and the answers can be ever-changing. Regardless of where you are in life, you may end up asking yourself these questions. Through this exploration, you may find comfort and solace, but you may also find that it leads to uncertainty, anxiety, and ultimately more questions than answers. Through an interpersonal-existential approach, we will explore all that it means to be you while grounding this experience in your moment-to-moment awareness.

Available for new bookings - video sessions only at this time. I am committed to building a relationship that supports your unique needs, develops your strengths and fosters your innate ability to heal. Often, we aren’t afforded the time, opportunity or privilege to learn the most beneficial ways to sift through what comes our way. We tackle things as best we can using strategies learned from previous experiences. In some situations, our default strategies end up taking us further away from what we want. This can prevent us from fulfilling our needs - we may get stuck not knowing how to cope or how to move forward.

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed by unexpected changes in our family life, relationships, careers or health - times when strong emotions are difficult to manage alone. Perhaps you are experiencing divorce, looking for a career change, deeply saddening by the state of our planet, or wondering what comes next. Maybe you long for a different life, but don't know what to move towards. You might be a high-achieving professional whose drive for success has left you feeling isolated and disconnected. You may be an exhausted or frustrated parent/partner, or grieving the loss of someone you love. You may be male/female/non-binary.

Feeling truly heard and understood can be a great source of support when experiencing painful emotions, going through a difficult time, during a life transition, in the process of personal change or just feeling stuck in old patterns that are now impacting your life in some way. Sharing these feelings with a therapist can also be a changing experience, as the therapeutic relationship combined with various strategies have been shown to be an important predictor of positive change.

Undisturb yourself! Using CBT, Existential, and Mindfulness forms of psychotherapy, I help clients (in-person/ telephone/ on-line) develop the tools in order that they think, act and feel better. Sometimes the realities of life understandably leave us susceptible to certain anxieties, despair and general existential concern. All too often we find ourselves developing unhelpful irrational thoughts and behaviours that can seem impossible to change. But they aren't. If you are interested in investigating and changing your assumptions and behaviours, if you want to modify the lens through which you view and experience the world, my therapeutic modality could be well suited to you.

Life is beautiful but it is also hard, exhausting, sad, messy and temperamental. Coping with the intense pressures and stress we face can be very challenging and isolating. I believe therapy is about having a relationship where we can safely and authentically explore and discover where we tend to hide parts of ourselves, run away, and hold back our truth from the world. Together we will explore this in a manner that welcomes and supports your whole being to foster an ongoing process of self-awareness, healing and self development - and towards you moving in the world with greater resiliency, authenticity and a deeper sense of self.

Therapy can be an intimidating experience because it requires us to open up to our internal world. I understand the courage it takes to begin and commit to therapy, and that is why my first goal is to provide you with a safe and validating environment to share your experiences. Often we reach out for help with the goal of eliminating discomfort, however, I have found that the most significant gains in therapy come from facilitating a more compassionate relationship with our internal world. Being curious about our thoughts and emotions, and how they influence us, can be the first step in gaining some control over our experience.
