About

I am currently on maternity leave and away from the office. I will be back in the office and accepting new clients in January 2023. I am a Registered Psychotherapist, whose goal is to support clients in exploring ingrained thinking patterns that impact effective emotion regulation and interpersonal relationships. I help clients develop more effective emotion regulation skills that involves reframing thoughts, increasing acceptance, body movement and breathwork exercises. I believe that each and every individual can benefit from therapy and the nonjudgmental and supportive space it provides.
Coming from a behavioural analysis background, I actively acknowledge that behaviour is only one aspect of a human and rarely the root of their issue. It is what influences the behaviour that matters, the values, beliefs, needs and reasons that underlie behaviour that truly matter.
I have an optimistic and engaging disposition that fuels a nonjudgmental curiosity of human personality and behaviour. I am passionate about continuing education and developing my skills to more effectively support clients develop lasting change. If you are interested in exploring patterns of behavior, thought, or emotional dysregulation contact me today.
