It can feel so scary and isolating to face all the challenges life throws at you, but you don’t have to face them alone. I understand how vulnerable it can feel to reach out for help, so whether this is your first time reaching out for support or your tenth, please take the time to admire your strength. You deserve a space where you can feel validated, seen and heard. Trauma can come in many forms and everyone holds on to it differently. Let's work together to lighten the load you've been carrying for so long and determine what a meaningful life looks like for you.

Ways of working and modalities that I’ve utilized within my practice include narrative psychotherapy, DBT , CBT and creatives arts therapy.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with more than ten years of experience supporting individuals with their mental wellness. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives and at times become stuck with internal conflict, ways of being, or are in situations that are not conducive to growth. I believe that everyone is on their own spiritual journey and that for some, participating in therapy can encourage deeper understanding and help to unearth meaning in their life. I enjoy helping clients work to identify the source of thoughts, feelings and concerns with the goal of arriving at a place of understanding and acceptance.

You deserve to feel excited about life, to like who you are, and to feel more than just stress and worry!

Well, I want to provide you with a space that allows you to control the volume, while I help guide you and support you through the process. I want you to reach your goals, overcome emotional suffering, and develop the skills you need to feel empowered as you navigate this complex thing, we call life.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. Reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, or a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can comfortably uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from living the life you deserve. My goal is to provide a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma-informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.

I often use dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and emotionally focused therapy.
One of the bravest things you can do is allow yourself to be vulnerable and begin your own story. I can promise you; I understand that taking this step is not easy and intimidating - I hope that together, we can take those deep breaths and begin (or continue) this journey together. I aim to support you as we work through the many obstacles that life may place in front of you so that you can reach your goals while developing and enhancing skills to navigate life.
