Anxiety, depression, stress, lack of self esteem, relationship issues, anger..that can all weigh you down and stop you from living the life you want to live. I understand that it is really hard to feel happy with that kind of weight on your shoulders. My practice is centered around helping you hold it, unload it and move forward. Together, we will find ways that you can let go of the burdens of anxiety, depression, improve your self esteem and work on all other things weighing you down so you can live a fuller happier life.

We're all in this together. We all need someone to talk to, to confide in. We are social beings and connection is a vital element of healthy living. We can talk. Perhaps the big questions in life ("Why am I here?", "What's the point?", "What now?") might be keeping you up at night, or perhaps stress with relationships, work, or family feels overwhelming. The world can be a lot sometimes, it can all feel overwhelming, but you are resilient. Together, we can grow, adapt and learn to navigate all of this. I offer both in-person and online-therapy and have some spots left!

Many clients find their way to therapy because they feel anxious, burnt out, and overwhelmed. Often, they are also newly aware of the negative impact these states are having on relationships with their loved ones, their work, and themselves. At a practical level, I help my clients reduce their symptoms of anxiety; at a deeper level, I help them unearth the unconscious beliefs that direct "problem" behaviours and patterns that are no longer serving them. I believe that what we become conscious of we can change, and that when we are empowered in this way we can then live more creatively-fulfilled, peaceful, and satisfying lives.

Through deep listening, dream work, image-in-the-body work and analysis, I collaborate with my clients to grow more meaningfully connected to themselves and others. What is a meaningful life? Am I happy? These questions are at the centre of many of my clients’ lives. The question of one’s personal meaning has profound impacts on one’s life. It can be the source of depression, addiction, relationship problems, poor self-value, and feeling disconnected from the world around you, from spiritual life and from soul life. I have been practicing for over 15 years as a Jungian psychoanalyst and psychotherapist.

Living with an advanced or chronic illness can feel like a full-time job.Alongside regular responsibilities, you’re juggling countless medical appointments and managing symptoms, while carrying a heavy mental/emotional load. You may be grieving life before illness, anxious about an uncertain future, and be grappling with difficult thoughts about death/dying, the purpose of suffering, or how to live a meaningful life. The process of finding a ‘new normal’ is unique to everyone. At times, it can feel isolating and exhausting, but you don't have to do it alone.

How to find hope? If you are feeling stuck, engaging in therapy can help you get moving again. You are seeking CHANGE. You feel stuck or you are sliding into habits that cause pain and suffering. Insecurity and conflict are things you are experiencing more than you want to. You may have turned to substances to numb the pain. It takes courage to seek support. Healing begins in the presence of someone who cares and tries to understand your journey. I can offer you that support.
