I've supported individuals dealing with addiction, trauma and mental health issues with training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Trauma Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.
I believe that every person has a desire to be their best self and live their best life. However there are times in life when you may be met with challenges, struggles or perhaps a personal crisis. Are you feeling overwhelmed? Perhaps you feel you are struggling to cope. I believe in every person’s ability to heal, grow, recover and change. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, where we can work together to build insight, self awareness and skills for your personal growth, wellness and healing.

I rely on my training and experiences in various clinical frameworks, including CBT, DBT , ACT, trauma, attachment, child development, family systems and emotionally focused family therapy.
As a therapist with over 2o years of experience working with infants, children, youth, adults, families and parents, I hear clients often say they wished they had reached out sooner for support. Often, shame or guilt had gotten in their way, somehow thinking they should be able to make changes alone. Quite honestly, we are not meant to do things alone. I offer treatment for struggles such as family stressors, parenting biological, foster and adoptive children, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, emotional dysregulation, and childhood maltreatment experiences, including sexual, emotional, and physical abuse.

I draw from evidence-based practices that include cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), mindfulness practice, trauma informed practice including dialectical behaviour therapy ( DBT ), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
I consider it a privilege every single time someone welcomes me to share in their therapeutic process. My intention is to bring authenticity, empathy and non-judgemental guidance to the room. I believe that therapy is a very personal experience for each of my clients, so I try to enter the therapeutic relationship as a 'clean slate', free of judgement or any agenda other than what they want or need in their healing. In my practice, I work from an anti-oppressive, client-focused, strength-based framework and believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that you are the expert of your experience.

I utilize a client centred, strength based approach with a focus on mindfulness, Cognitive Behaviour (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour ( DBT ) therapies.
I work with people who are struggling with mood, anxiety and/or aren't sure how to manage. If you feel stuck in your current life, want to make changes and don't know where to start, please don't feel you need to navigate alone. We get in our own way of achieving our goals, we are our own worst critics and allow the negative self talk and feelings of low self worth to prevent us from achieving our goals. Allow yourself the opportunity to work with someone who can help remind you of your own resilience, strength and value.

I use Compassion-Focused, mindfulness and music therapies, DBT & CPT.
I find therapy can be a branch that reaches in, something strong you use to pull yourself from a harsh inner world to more solid ground. If you feel overwhelmed or raw, what you're experiencing isn't a problem with who you are. Plenty is hard in this world. Add in factors like your history, systemic barriers, learned habits, vulnerabilities, perhaps traumas, or feelings that overwhelm your capacities right now - it can be exhausting. At best. The hopeful news is that you can change your experience: gain understanding and strength, create your solid ground, and move in a direction that's in line with what matters to you.

I embrace a trauma informed approach while drawing on evidence-based psychotherapy modalities, such as CBT, DBT and EMDR, to support you in working through any challenges you may be facing.
Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, stress, shame, or fear? Are you feeling down or on edge most of the time? These feelings can often leave us stuck, not knowing how to proceed, and having a negative impact on our relationships, mental health, and coping. Reaching out for support can feel overwhelming and confusing, but it is my goal to create an environment in which you feel heard, understood, and supported in working through difficult emotions, life events, and stressors, while taking positive steps forward to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
