(Please Note: My practice is currently full. I am not accepting new clients.) Is life feeling overwhelming? Do you feel stuck in old patterns, out of control or just freak'n frustrated? Okay, so here is some good news: getting started is one of the hardest parts of change, you are already on the road to change by seeking help. My job is to help you have a great life. It's a big goal, but the challenge and process are deeply gratifying in their own right.

No one should have to ‘hold it together’ on their own; everyone should have access to ‘holding it together’ - together! Building relationships rooted in solidarity and social transformation, honing critical analysis of power and oppression, and deepening into life purpose are at the heart of the healing process.

Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.
