Something is wrong, but we can't quite grasp what. We search for a better understanding of ourselves in order to solve our emotional and psychological discontent. We think about the events of the day, relationships, childhood and the past. Still, something doesn't seem right. We act and feel in ways that create discord. I provide psychotherapy for people who are interested in looking for the deeper meaning behind the discomfort in their lives. The goal is to be able to have more meaningful relationships, fulfilling work and societal contributions, as well as the capacity to bear the difficulties that are part of living fully.

Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.

I hope to be present with you in spirit, in your everyday lives, helping you to be reminded of the strategies we may have discussed and offer you the support you need when you are most in need of it. I want you to know that you are not alone in your struggles - whether these struggles stem from anxiety, grief, loss of identity and self-worth, or struggling to find meaning in life. I have a special interest in working with young adolescents and young adults.

I help people reduce conflict, restore integrity, find ease, confidence and joy in their lives, even when it seems impossible. Through this work, you can harness your own innate ability to face and transform the challenges of living, loving, working and parenting. Together we create a compassionate and courageous space where you are heard and understood within the wider context of your family and environment. Using the neuroscience of emotion, this work addresses problems at the root, rather than focusing on behaviours or symptoms.

I believe that trauma can get locked in the body if we do not have the safety or support at the time to care for it.

The therapeutic encounter fosters acceptance of what has, or has not happened to you in your life. It's a transformative experience that allows you to know yourself profoundly and helps you move forward in your life. I use the psychoanalytic approach, which is based on working through your internal conflicts and puzzling self-sabotaging behaviours. Using dreams, free association and working with the "here and now" of our relationship, we work together to address what prompted you to seek help.

Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.
