I have spent over 20 years assisting people in the mental health, cancer care, and healthcare fields.

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 offer CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) , Trauma focused , and strengths based therapy through a culturally sensitive, compassion based practice.
Growing up right now can be incredibly hard and children and youth are struggling with a variety of challenges including mood and emotions, anxiety, depression, self-harm, addictions, mental health, peer relationships, sexuality and gender expression, family and peer conflict, and an ever changing, often times scary world. It can be difficult, as caregivers, to watch our children experience these issues and not know the best way to support them. I provide a welcoming, creative, and compassionate environment for children and youth to safely explore their feelings, their struggles and their concerns though talk, art and play.

Life can be difficult to navigate, and with time identities shift and change as we experience new milestones and challenges. In the process, you may gain new unexpected identities while losing others that were once held dear. You might find that you no longer recognize yourself or that something feels missing. This might have you feeling empty, irritated, and unmotivated. Whether you are held back by trauma of the past or by the anxiety of the future, I am here to support you on your journey to self-discovery.

And your chest clenched for attention. Skin crawling desperation. To call in sick, or to stay in bed, or to numb out with distractions that you do not feel proud of. Maybe you feel nausea or fear or shame, or an emptiness that aches inside you. Or anxiety that rarely seems to settle. Maybe you have repetitive or consuming thoughts of how incompetent or unworthy you are. Maybe you just feel simply exhausted. People come to see me to move away from feelings of overwhelm, to begin to know and trust themselves (and others) again, to begin to feel better in their lives (as they define it).
