About

I work with individuals, couples and families experiencing life stressors, including life transitions, mental health challenges and existential conflict. For couples, I specialize in marriage preparation, early stages of the relationship and new parent conflict resolution. I have a passion for working with people experiencing depression and anxiety, people of colour, those facing challenging life situations and individuals that may fall on the "outcast" category
I work primarily from Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Narrative therapy and Mindfulness. In my couple and family work I use Gottman method informed interventions. Solution Focused/Brief therapy, existential psychotherapy and self compassion also strongly influence my practice. I am informed by system analysis, anti-oppression and radical acceptance.
I seek to empower my clients to find their own expertise and strengths and use them to work out the challenges facing them. The approach I take combines evidence based treatment with practice wisdom, empathy and self-compassion to help clients reach their goal and achieve a life worth living.
