Currently accepting new clients! Do you struggle with anxiety or low self-esteem that affects your relationships and day-to-day life? Experiencing burnout or a sense of 'bleh'? Do you feel exhausted and overwhelmed from trying to manage on your own? Do you have a sense of what you'd like to be doing, but maybe unsure of the steps to get there? You are not alone! People are feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about how they are supposed to manage their careers, relationships, and all of life’s challenges. I believe you should be able to live your life with confidence and enthusiasm!
I offer a custom and specific approach for each client. I'm curious about your story! I start by genuinely listening and understanding what you are experiencing. I help you implement a plan to achieve your goals, and help you stay on track. I provide a relaxed and welcoming space with flexible virtual appointments to allow easy access to therapy.
Helping people gain a sense of confidence is my passion. This might include challenging your thinking, setting healthier boundaries, or adjusting behaviours. My goal is to set you up with helpful tools and strategies so that you can feel great and be excited about your life going forward! Message me for your free consult and we will get started together!

While Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) forms the foundation of my work with clients, I pull in aspects from other modalities in order to customize my approach for each individual client. We will look at how your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours interact with each other so that you can gain confidence in taking charge of your life. We will identify and utilize your strengths in the process.
