Counselling supports clients understanding themselves and their relationships. It's an important step. An unbiased and open listener helps to create a better understanding of oneself and the dilemma one faces. Couples counselling supports an understanding concerning values, beliefs and emotions moving toward mutual support of necessary attachment needs and hopes.

Are you an individual or couple who is struggling with emotional distress related to anxiety, stress, anger, depression or grief? Without proper support processing difficult emotions can be challenging. I can help you to get at the 'roots' of your distress as well as help you to become in touch with the concerns, goals, and needs that underlie your experiences. I also work with clients to address issues related to self and identity as well as clients who have faced attachment trauma or traumatic experiences that have altered their sense of self, others and the world around them.

Hello, and thank you for your interest in working with me. I might be the right therapist for you if you are looking for structure and challenge in a warm, supportive context. I can help you to better understand your symptoms so that you feel more empowered to address these challenges day-to-day. I work with specific concerns, such as panic attacks or insomnia, or broader goals, such as building self-esteem. I can give you concrete tools to practice in-between sessions, as well as support you in building confidence and self-compassion while this growth is taking place. You will likely find me using humor along the way.

In this busy life it can be difficult to find relief from persistent anxiety and the lingering weight of unresolved trauma while also yearning for a deeper spiritual connection and meaning in your life. In the midst of these struggles, the spiritual dimension often feels distant or obscured. This disconnection can be accompanied by overwhelming anxiety and the haunting echoes of past trauma, hindering your ability to navigate life authentically. Aligning choices with your soul's purpose becomes challenging under the weight of these emotional burdens, impacting relationships and personal growth.

Your relationships can be an incredible source of pleasure and connection, AND they can be the biggest source of tension and exhaustion. You might feel rigid and uncreative, or be falling into people-pleasing habits. You may feel overwhelming physical sensations of constriction, pain or numbness. You play a vast range of roles in your friendships, romantic & intimate dynamics, and at work. This can be a lot to handle, and you may be masking your authentic self. Creative arts therapy can offer new ways to find playfulness so you can relax into intimacy in your relationships, your body, and fully own the stories that shape you.

As we go through difficult experiences, I believe that there is comfort in not being alone. I believe that a connection with another person can provide an opportunity to feel safe as we explore unknown parts of our lives. I am hopeful and believe that there are possibilities that are here to be uncovered in each of us. I bring generosity of spirit into my work and will meet you where you are at in your process and we will move forward in a way that feels right for you. I am open to sitting with whatever it is that you are experiencing, including those places that may feel scary, painful or overwhelming.

My therapeutic approach is centered on creating an accepting and responsive environment. Beyond that, I view therapy as a process that facilitates a healthier relationship with oneself and proactively disrupts patterns causing distress. I balance insight and understanding with change-focused, effective coping strategies that comprehensively address areas of difficulty and challenge. This is often achieved by leveraging awareness of underlying emotions, unmet needs, and unresolved experiences to pave the way towards symptom reduction and meaningful change, noticeably enhancing quality of life.

I help neurodivergent (autism, ADHD), queer, immigrant, and minority clients build their self-esteem and cultivate meaningful relationships. I also support students and working professionals with career transitions and stress management. Poor boundaries, people-pleasing, and relationship anxiety can come about when you consistently receive the message that your needs are not as important as somebody else's. Although masking your genuine self may have aided you through difficult times, losing touch with who you really are will only bring you farther from what you actually want and need.
