My potential clients may or may not have a clear sense of what brings them to therapy. They may be dealing with depression, anxiety, or addiction, among other things. They may be experiencing trouble in relationships, whether it be with family, friends, partners, coworkers, roommates, and others. They want to understand themselves and their relationships better. They are open to the non-linear nature of personal progress.

Our feelings are a compass pointing toward personal growth and movement. I have learned to listen to and respect these feelings and I can help you to do the same. My approach is honed through years of clinical work with children and families. Through this developmental lens, I can help you bring context to your concerns, see unhelpful patterns, and change portions of the picture that don’t serve you so you can show up differently in small moments and in big ones.

It's important that you acknowledge yourself for taking the step of finding someone to provide guidance. In my thirty years of experience I've learned that a big part of the healing occurs as a by-product of the relationship between client and psychotherapist. When this relationship is grounded in safety and compassion, the relationship blossoms and healing occurs. My working style is client centered and collaborative. It invites self-inquiry--leading to a deeper understanding of issues and their root causes.

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.

OPEN TO NEW CLIENTS. For some reason, you're still doing what you're doing, even though it isn't helpful. While you know you need better coping strategies than food, dieting, exercise, alcohol, cocaine, or cannabis, challenging the way you're thinking hasn't worked. You might have seen a few therapists in the past or are even currently seeing someone for other reasons, but your problematic behaviours tend to go undiscussed - in part because you feel too guilty or ashamed to talk about them. Now you're ready to reclaim your life, though.

My central belief is that all problems are relational in nature. These issues originate from our unique personalities and upbringings from which we formulate our views about people and the world. The therapeutic environment provides a context within which our relational paradigms become the grist for the therapy mill. It is through this connection that we can become better at understanding ourselves in relation to our most significant interpersonal connections. In addition to a place where empathy is of greatest importance to establish the therapeutic bond, one must also be willing and open to challenging emotional comfort zones.
