I became a social worker because "your life is worth my time.” This is something I live by as I value each and every client I have had the opportunity to work with. I always feel blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. I work hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approach my practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens. I have also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and have completed Phases 1 and 2.

I don't think mental health is something you achieve, but rather something you work your whole life trying to improve and maintain. There are so many reasons why you can't seem to be the best version of yourself - lack of motivation, negative past experiences, fears, and insecurities. And sometimes you just need a space separate from your world to help clarify and better understand yourself and what's standing in your way. My goal is to create an open, trusting, and vulnerable space where you can be your most authentic self - I believe that is the state where insight and change takes place.

I'm a registered social worker that provides evidence-based therapy for individuals and couples. Perhaps you are struggling with feelings of anxiety and depression or you are unhappy in your relationship. You might be avoiding difficult situations or finding ways to escape from how you are feeling. As a couple, you might be feeling stuck. Your conversations or arguments go in circles and never feel resolved. It's become difficult to communicate and you feel disconnected from each other.

Couple and Family Therapist specializing in strengthening individual wellbeing and relationships. I approach work with clients, including individual clients, from a relationship perspective in recognition of the significant impacts our relationships, past and present, have on our lives and wellbeing. I also take a systemic approach, viewing individual and relationship difficulties in consideration of the history and current conditions of people's lives. It is a respectful and comprehensive approach that effectively leads to positive changes, and that is rooted in a strong therapeutic relationship.

Accepting new referrals end of Sept 2022. Whether it be you or a loved one, most of us have experienced some form of struggle or loss. In today’s fast-paced world many of us are also juggling the competing demands of work and home life; both have become further complicated by technology and social media. We live in a world where we are more connected, yet lonelier than ever. For those with children, we are inundated with parenting advice, leaving us questioning whether we are doing enough, or doing it right. With all the information overload it can be difficult to know where to get started when it comes to our emotional health.

Life is beautiful, in part because of its challenges which can help us to grow and learn more about ourselves. There are times when we can feel overwhelmed and experience increased stress, anxiety, low mood or various other things that have us feeling less like ourselves. Simply put, those are all signs that you have done the best that you can with the skills and supports that you have to navigate this part of your life. My hope in this role is to support each individual to realign with their strengths and the development of the skills needed to thrive during these seasons.

People come to therapy with the hope of enhancing their life story in a meaningful way, yet many find themselves held back from realizing this hope due to painful emotions, relationship problems, and trauma. Psychotherapy can be the chapter in a person’s life where stuck circumstances finally start to change. Psychotherapy can be the chapter where a person grieves their losses, confronts their deepest fears, heals deep-seated wounds, and finds within themselves the courage and strength to go forward with greater confidence, joy, and peace.
