Accepting new clients – Whether its anxious thoughts, depressive spirals, self-esteem, or interpersonal issues, mental health concerns can easily begin to feel like they are taking over our lives. This often causes feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, and can create uncertainty around how to move forwards. I specialize in helping youth and adults process challenging emotions and past experiences from a trauma-focused, attachment-based perspective. I use a holistic lens in my work that highlights the mind-body connection and focuses on working collaboratively alongside each client to identify actionable steps towards change.
To design a therapeutic approach and session style that is tailor-made to fit each client, I draw on a diverse range of modalities including Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Therapy, and Mindfulness. My approach changes based on your unique needs.
I became a psychotherapist as a result of the life-changing effects I have experienced throughout my own therapy journey. My aim is to make a genuine difference for others. For this reason, I am continuously building my professional skills and am presently training as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP-II) for complex trauma treatment.

Everyone is looking for something a little bit different when they begin therapy. I work collaboratively with each client I meet to establish treatment goals that feel right for them. I can then begin designing a treatment plan and session format that aligns with these objectives, drawing on my training in a variety of modalities such as EFT, DBT, CBT, IFS, Somatic Therapy, and Mindfulness.
