My specialty is helping people with lived experiences of trauma, sexual abuse , anxiety, depression, feelings of rejection, and low- self esteem.
You cannot do it alone and no one can do it for you" P.L. You may have noticed that your mood fluctuates between feeling anxious and/or depressed. And you don't know how to navigate or interrupt this cycle. Life is nudging you towards seeking support because at times holding it all by yourself feels like too much. In therapy with me, you will feel heard, and understood. You will learn what is overwhelming your internal system (thoughts, feelings and experiences in the body) and be able to move towards regulation, ease and balance. I bring a sense of curiosity and compassion and empower you to lead with courage and confidence.

I work to meet people where they are and help them to unravel psychological problems that are negatively impacting their lives. I utilize a collaborative approach to therapy where I’ll explain what we’re doing and why so that we can engage in the process together. My goal is to help people to get back on the path towards happiness and living as well as they can.

I have a background in the education system, child welfare, settlement services with immigrants and refugees and survivors of sexual abuse .
I believe seeking supports through counselling is an act of bravery and courage and as such I consider it an honour for anyone to confide in me their struggles, hopes and aspirations. My intention is to simply be human with individuals and help guide them along their journey. Therapy is not a fix it all solution, it takes time, practice and most importantly a genuine human connection.

We often look for external solutions when we are trying to resolve or fix a problem. We may be struggling with issues at work or school, or perhaps we’re feeling stuck in a life that no longer brings us joy. The loss of a loved one or a marriage or relationship breakdown leaves us feeling depleted and abandoned. Overwhelmed anxious feelings can easily take over when faced with any of these situations.

Do you feel stuck and unsure about how to move forward? Do you want more fulfilling relationships? Do you experience conflict? Sometimes people find it hard to pinpoint what their struggles are, but they feel a deep desire for change. Couples may find it hard to feel connected. They may feel anger, resentment, and frustration, and wonder how to overcome these feelings, to feel closer and deeply understood by each other. Parents may find it hard to stay connected to their children or want support around how to overcome challenging interactions.

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.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.
