Reaching out to start therapy can be anxiety-provoking. It's important to me that you feel comfortable in session and we build a trusting relationship as it's the foundation of therapeutic success. My aim is to help you understand why you feel or behave in the ways that you do and find helpful coping strategies to live a more meaningful life. Therapy goals are based on your priorities and values. In sessions, we will discuss how your feelings, thoughts, trauma or current stressors are impacting your life. I incorporate approaches such as mindfulness, self-compassion, regulation and value-based actions to work towards your goals.

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.

Giving some prior thought about your expectations for counselling is helpful, especially the roles for helper and client and their working alliance, and your goals for the process. It's important to choose a counsellor that best fits you. I see my role as 'on your team', yet not the manager or coach. You are the expert on you. I prefer a ‘level playing field’, so I endeavour to keep things open and transparent as possible. Since I think you already possess skills and strategies to tackle challenges ahead, our work together is about uncovering strengths, strategies and making a game plan together so 'wins' are truly yours.
I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) who aims to create safe spaces for people to navigate their struggles, stressors, and healing journeys. My approach to counselling is grounded in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, which gives people the tools they need to become more aware of their present moment thoughts and feelings and helps identify how they may impact overall well-being. I operate from an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed lens. While working together, I hope that my clients feel heard, supported, and empowered to achieve their goals.
