Are you struggling with the demands of everyday life? Many of us strive to keep up and stay on top of things, so much so that we often forget about ourselves in the process. I provide a safe, non-judgmental and empathic environment for adults experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, interpersonal conflict, chronic illness, workplace stress, caregiver stress, and issues with self-esteem. I work collaboratively with clients to help them find the most effective, long-term solutions to their challenges. My goal is to help build resiliency by exploring the challenges we are faced with - no matter what the situation may be.

Navigating life's challenges can be difficult and reaching out for support is often the hardest step. I am here to provide a “safer”, caring and supportive space to you in your mental health journey. I step into the therapeutic space as a woman of colour and a psychotherapist. I recognize how the systems we exist in influence our lives and experiences. My approach is trauma-informed, intersectional, and anti-oppressive. In our sessions, I encourage exploration, offer support, and nurture fresh perspectives through gentle and creative methods.
