As a therapist of 16 years, a human with lived experience and knowledge on brain and neuroscience research, I understand the significance of safety, vulnerability, authenticity, and connection. I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help. This is why I try my best to make the process as comfortable and safe as possible. Using an integrative approach, I draw from various treatment modalities and tailor sessions to your needs. Grounded in authenticity and genuineness, my therapeutic style is naturally warm, empathetic, and compassionate. I believe therapy can be life altering when there is a good fit.

Recent years have not been kind to our mental health. As we come out of this pandemic, it is natural to feel stuck, overwhelmed, or even inadequate compared to those who seem to be moving forward with ease. As a result, you may be questioning your level of connection in your relationships and home-life, perhaps your ability as a parent. Are you yearning for change but feel unable to find the motivation to initiate a plan of action? Are you wishing to be the source of support that your loved ones need but lack direction for how to fulfill this role as a parent or caregiver?

Are you feeling chained to the past and locked into “autopilot” mode? Are relationships leaving you wonder about belonging or being good enough? Trauma leaves an undeniable trail of distrust and fear in our mind and our bodies. Trauma is what went wrong and what was never given. Its imprints shape our stress response, emotional thresholds and how we relate to others. So, what if you could quiet your survival brain and take back control of your life? Therapy is about becoming the architect of your life and the master of your mind and body. It’s time to take charge and shape the new you.

Are you engaged in a constant battle with anxiety or negative, unwanted, intimidating, or embarrassing intrusive thoughts? Are you trying to avoid triggers like places, people, events, or thoughts? Do you feel that you are "putting out fires" instead of dealing with the core issues? Would you like to overcome the obstacles that prevent you from enjoying every day of your life? Maybe you already tried therapy and it didn't work. Yet, you can learn to go through life without such a struggle. We can help you get there.

We specialize in the treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders (Panic, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, GAD), using CBT, ERP, & ACT approaches.
You may not show it, but you feel stuck. Your anxiety and fears prevent you from taking steps forward. Instead, you find yourself procrastinating and avoiding. You are consumed by doubt and overwhelmed by worry and unwanted, intrusive, uncontrollable thoughts. You try hard to avoid those thoughts, but they keep coming back. The more you fight them, the stickier they become. You try to tell yourself that the thoughts are meaningless, but somehow you feel you can never be sure. What if after all, something horrible will happen? What if the thoughts mean something important? Your friends and family keep telling you not to worry and explain that everything is just in your head. This reassurance helps for a bit, but very soon you are back to endless "What if? " questions. You tried therapy before. The therapist tried to convince you that what you fear is unlikely to happen and taught you relaxation, breathing, meditation, and thought records. But it didn't help and made you even more hopeless. You'd like to break free from your worries and fears and start living your life. If you are reading this profile, you may be finally considering making a significant change. We are here to help!

As a Registered Social Worker, I seek to include all elements of the person in my practice. I am deeply committed to supporting individuals (teens and adults) facing a myriad of life challenges through a compassionate, person-centered lens. In addition to anxiety and depression, I have a therapeutic focus on the difficulties underlying ADHD and OCD. My journey into social work/therapy was inspired by a personal desire to empower others to overcome obstacles, cultivate resilience, and lead full, meaningful lives through a values and strengths-based framework.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline, among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
