About

Do you feel like life is chaos and you’re all alone? Like none of your relationships are working out and that there’s always a crisis to address? Maybe you’ve been told you’re too much or too sensitive and that you need to get over things that have happened to you in the past. Whether you have been diagnosed with BPD, CPTSD, PTSD, or are struggling with feeling chronically suicidal, managing you addiction, or feel emotionally out of control, HopeStart Therapy is dedicated to validating and supporting individuals to address these experiences, figure out what’s going on, and find practical skills to grow into living the life you want.
I specialize in working with individuals who struggle to control their emotions and impulses through empathy, skills-focused, and validating support. I offer a trauma-informed, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) approach through an online platform via telehealth video appointments and real-time phone-based skills coaching.
I would feel privileged to be able to walk with you in exploring how to find control over the chaos, identify a sense of self, and, ultimately, discover a life worth living. Please feel free to reach out regarding sliding scale, evening and weekend appointments.
