Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

Our mind can be our greatest resource and at times our worst enemy. Managing the unhealthy chatter of our mind can prove to be our greatest challenge. Unhelpful responses to our thoughts, feelings and life situations can cause anxiety and depression problems as well the reliance on unhealthy habits in an attempt to cope. My approach focuses on learning to effectively managing our thoughts, feelings and relationships and on living life in a manner consistent with your values. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals to overcome difficulties, to achieve goals and to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Currently offering remote sessions (phone and video call). Accepting new clients. When most clients come to me they don't know where to start. Things have been difficult and they haven't been able to overcome their problems alone or with their friend's advice. My clients need someone to listen, someone who knows about the fake face, someone who can help them understand "why"; and help them find a way to get healthy. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from OISE | UofT the University of Toronto where I learned to use research-supported methods to help clients be empowered. Clients are always the experts on themselves.
