Individuals carry a large load of worries and responsibilities on a daily basis. The weight often becomes overwhelming over time and will interfere in our ways of thinking, feeling and dealing with life challenges. Some of the goals in psychotherapy are to move past the feelings of anxiety and hopelessness and to gain mastery in what may be perceived as unresolvable initially. For many, psychotherapy also contributes in developing a happier and more meaningful life.

Presently, I am a student Masters level in Counselling Psychology practicing under clinical supervision. My approach to therapy consists primarily of building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients. I value the unique dignity of every human person. I see the therapeutic relationship as a way of affective “being” with a person as opposed to effective “doing”. One of my goals is to reveal my client's intrinsic goodness. Therefore, I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment in my therapy sessions. For a theoretical method, I use an integrative psychotherapy approach based on research-based theories.

I am passionate about mental wellness and helping people make and maintain positive changes in their lives. I feel strongly that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and I prioritize collaboration and authenticity in my therapeutic approach. I use a biopsychosocial lens to consider how your identity, culture, context may be affecting your experience and worldview. In every case, we decide together what works best for you; I believe that this gives you the best opportunity to achieve further understanding and insight, and ultimately transform this self-discovery into meaningful and lasting change.

Right now our world is at a new level of unpredictability and may be triggering uncomfortable feelings. I am here to create a safe and supportive space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences within transitions life presents. In our work together we practice and reflect on the integration of new strategies to meet your needs on a deeper level, often involving mindfulness and self-compassion, trauma informed somatic experiencing, and attachment and ego-state (i.e. inner child & critic) therapeutic approaches.

Navigating life can be difficult, especially when you’re in new territory. Feelings of depression or anxiety can spiral into more fears and doubts. Being a young adult brings all sorts of pressure, and most of us don’t get much education in how to make that transition. It’s common to cope by avoiding, using drugs or alcohol, or isolating. Fortunately, things can improve. Life may never be perfect, but you can learn new skills and effective ways of dealing with challenges. I work with teens and adults of all ages, and specialize in helping young adults and couples who want to feel more confident, accepted, and joyful in the world.

Clients of mine often have behaviours, thoughts, feelings, or emotions that are dysfunctional or cause them discomfort, such as feeling anxious, depressed, frustrated, reactive, or scattered. Many of my clients have difficulty with behaviours they feel they have no control over, such as habits or addictions, aversions, or getting easily frustrated or angry. I help my clients understand why these issues occur and help them create tools and protocols such that they can create the changes they want.

Feeling anxious, caught in the cycle of people-pleasing or struggling with an eating disorder? Are you disconnected from your true self or struggling with relationships? Childhood trauma can have lasting effects that limit us, impacting our self-esteem, direction, and relationships. If you're navigating the conditioning from emotionally immature or neglectful parents, or if relationships don't feel safe, holistic psychotherapy can be your compass for healing. There's hope for breaking free from old patterns, knowing your true needs and desires, and living a life aligned with your authentic self, not just societal expectations.

“Some people see scars, and it is wounding they remember. To me, they are proof of the fact that there is healing.” Linda Hogan. I think of this quote often, as it aligns with my nature and also how I view my clients. It aptly describes the tension of recognizing a person’s inner strength, that harm outside of their control has been done to them, and that there is something beyond being in a survival state. I have worked as a counsellor and in Mental Health for over 12 years and approach my practice with compassion, an open-mind and empathy.
