Unpleasant and/or traumatic experiences seem to be really good at getting in the way of truly embracing the good times, and people, in our lives. These experiences can leave us feeling overwhelmed and isolated, maybe even confused about why we're struggling in our relationships or feeling unhappy. Through the use of evidence-based strategies, lots of empathy and a sense of humor, we will create an environment where you feel safe and supported exploring the aspects of your life that will help you understand the problems your facing, increase confidence in your ability to cope with hard times and fully engage in life again.
We will consider aspects about you (like your thoughts, emotions, and life experiences) and your environment (think relationships and external stress) using a variety of evidence-based approaches that focus on understanding why certain problems arise and how we can affect change so that you can move towards a happier and more fulfilling way of life.
Thinking about sharing some of your most troubling experiences or emotions can be intimidating. Rest assured, we can go at a pace you feel comfortable with, think - you're in the drivers seat and I'll help with directions. I invite you to reach out to learn more about what therapy between you and I might look like to see if we might be a good fit!

It can be hard to know what exactly you are seeking help with, especially if you've never been to therapy before. As opposed to specific conditions or disorders, I like to say I specialize in ways of problem-solving like understanding emotions, finding new ways of thinking about things, and processing unpleasant and traumatic experiences.

I utilize an integrative approach that is informed by evolutionary psychology. I draw from cognitive-behavioural approaches like CBT and ACT for specific therapeutic strategies, as well as CPT for trauma-related issues. We will look at what the problem is and why it may have developed to better understand the issue and affect change.
