Being human can be really hard at times and sometimes it can feel like an uphill battle just to cope with day to day life. Finding a therapist can also feel pretty overwhelming; there are so many choices out there! Yet a good therapist fit is important, because working with the right person can be both liberating and empowering. Passionate about this work, I show up in session with curiosity, a grounded approach, extensive training, and a deep commitment to my clients’ wellbeing. I’m skilled in the use of a variety of evidenced-based therapies and embodied, somatic practices, because I am dedicated to doing therapy that works.
I am also just a person living her life, knowing how hard change can be for all of us. I hope that together we can create space for you to work through your personal and relationship challenges, make sense of your thoughts, feelings and responses, and help you develop effective skills and tools so that you can shift from trying to cope to genuinely living.
Let's join forces and get curious so that, together, we can figure out what’s happening in your life that has you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and alone. It is time for you to start being the person you want to be and living the life you want to live. I am excited for your path to open up before you and I would be honoured to join you on your journey.
