I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy that is compassion-focused.
***Currently full - please contact for waitlist options*** My clients usually come to therapy for relief from their mental health symptoms. They are often feeling overwhelmed, have been thinking about making changes for a long time and are feeling stuck in how to move forward. Together we look at the issues, explore how it is impacting their lives, and come up goals and a treatment plan. This treatment plan includes learning more about your mental health, gaining new skills and strategies that you will carry with you long after therapy ends, and finally practicing a language of self-compassion to replace unhelpful/critical thinking.

Most people who come to me are struggling with challenges that fall into one of four main categories: 1) anxiety, and other struggles with emotional regulation, 2) relationship difficulties, with family, friends, stress, work, nature, society, spirituality, and oneself, 3) direction, related to life purpose or career, and 4) depression, and grief-related challenges. I work with adult individuals (16 and up) and couples seeking guidance, support, and tools to help navigate life struggles with more self-awareness and agency.

Thinking outside the box approach to traditional therapy, because no one individual fits neatly inside a box. Working together, using CBT and neurologic techniques to support you in your area or areas of need, music psychotherapy draws from traditional talk therapy while offering ways to move forward in who you are, both verbally and non-verbally. Using music offers a non-evasive and trusting medium within a clinical session and translates into a coping skill within everyday life. Please contact me for either Telehealth or in-person sessions.

I have a Masters in Social Work and have continued my education by learning about CBT , DBT, ACT, and EMDR.
I believe that we all have the capacity for happiness and that certain things get in the way of us achieving it. It might be past hurts, trauma, anxiety, depression, or self-doubt. It could be a sense that things are "good enough" just as they are, or even a fear of hoping for better. These hurt feelings and barriers weigh us down and prevent us from forming healthy relationships, engaging in fulfilling careers, or even identifying what we truly want out of life. Counselling can be an incredibly beneficial way to work towards the life you hope to live.
