Sometimes life’s difficulties overwhelm our usual ways of coping and we find ourselves weighed down, struggling, exhausted, perhaps even defeated or isolated, like there is no one around us who really gets it. I hold deeply the belief that it is okay not to be okay. With compassion and curiosity about your unique experiences, we can explore a collaborative comfortable space for you to explore what is going on for you. I’m a social worker registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I have helped many adults address a range of mental health concerns as well as problems we encounter in daily life.

I’m a Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor and have over 10 years of experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I work with adults (18+) who are experiencing stress, anxiety, burnout, and/or experiencing significant life transitions (eg. school to work, work to retirement, new parents, empty nesters, relocation, etc.). Transitions in life can be some of the most challenging times, when our direction, support systems, and needs evolve. While I work with all adults, I do have particular experience supporting post-secondary students, having worked with university students for ten years.

I am a social worker with many years of experience. I believe people are their own knowledge keepers and may need help unpacking their values and truths as often they have been silenced and buried deep within. I want to help you find your voice and speak your truth out loud in a safe environment. From a young age I knew I wanted to work with people and help them in some kind of capacity. I believe a therapeutic relationship is key to helping others. I truly believe that my own personal and professional life experiences have given me a unique opportunity in understanding others.

If you are looking for a therapist who you can have a genuine conversation with, receive compassion, and feel understood we might be a good fit . For me, what is most important in working together is the relationship we develop. I truly believe a trusting relationship with your therapist where you feel safe, secure, and gently challenged supports healing, change and growth. I work with ages 12+ who have experienced trauma and loss, are wanting support with mental health (anxiety, depression and/or PTSD), are struggling with relationships, or need an affirming place to explore and discuss their gender identity and sexuality.

I am looking for motivated clients who are willing to take action to resolve whatever needs to change in their life. My typical clients are looking for relief from stress, anxiety, depression, negative emotions, or difficult life situations. Some of them are struggling with compulsive behaviours and feel out of control. Others are in a relationship but things are not as good as they can be and they want more. Some of my clients are just looking to talk to someone who listens well, validates them and gives them another perspective. Sometimes they feel stuck and need tools, support and encouragement to help them move forward.

Accepting a limited number of new clients - Sometimes in life, we find ourselves feeling worn down. This is normal. Life is demanding, and as we grow, so do our responsibilities. The struggle is when we don't find a balance to life's demands. When we lose that balance, it can be easy to forget what joy, peace, or fulfillment feels like. Our balance can be disrupted by a job that feels uninspiring, a relationship that feels disconnected, or maybe we've lost someone or something important to us. For many of us, when our balance is compromised, we can experience feelings of anxiety, frustration, and or depression.

I support individuals who feel stuck and are curious about engaging in therapeutic art-making as an instrument of growth, support and personal empowerment. I work from a place of witnessing the human experience, with art-making at the centre that supports the healing process and anchors the therapeutic relationship. Art-making within a secure therapeutic relationship offers an opportunity to practice self-care and provides a safe place for further self-discoveries, new ways of solution finding and gaining new skills to manage some of life’s challenges.

Challenges and adversity in life are unavoidable and often it's all too easy to get stuck or held back by the weight of it. In this world, so many of us believe we should be able to 'get unstuck' on our own and then struggle to figure out why that seems so hard. As humans, our need for help is universal although asking for it can be hard. My first goal is to create a safe, non-judgemental space to voice what you nee, and second, to work with you to identify and break free from the patterns and beliefs that keep you stuck. You have the ability to get 'unstuck', sometimes the first step is allowing yourself to ask for help to find it.

My philosophy of treatment is to listen deeply to what has happened. I ask pertinent questions, not to judge what you have experienced, but to assist me in understanding what has happened and how it is affecting you now. We will embark on a journey together to unravel the reasons and answers that have eluded you so far. I use a client-centred approach, which means that you are the expert and I am the assistant. I will not try to fix you, but together, we will deconstruct what has happened and work towards creating the outcomes that you want.
