Are you looking to create positive change in your life? Unsure how to navigate this terrain on your own? Do you want to be fully engaged in your life and relationships? The work we do together will help you cultivate meaning and make these changes. I work from a strengths-based perspective and believe that we all have within us the capacity to heal and thrive, far beyond what we often recognize. Engaging in the counselling process can be tremendously beneficial as we rediscover our own strength and resilience.

Over the last few years, I have dedicated my time to developing a trauma focused lens to better understand the unique impacts that adversity can have on our mental and physical 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.

I have training in many different therapeutic modalities so I can best tailor an approach to the unique needs of individuals but have focus in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT, Narrative and Solution Focused.
Accepting NEW clients! - If you are reading this you have already taken the scariest step; recognizing that you want some extra help or support. Are you experiencing issues in life and you don't know how to approach them, where to even start, or who to reach out to? Do you have past experiences which are not letting you move on with your life? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, self-esteem or trauma? Or stress, a mood or borderline personality disorder? Sometimes life gives us more than we can handle alone, and we don't know how to cope.

I know first hand what it is like to live with anxiety, depression and chronic pain. For me it has felt like a lack of control over my life and, at times, total hopelessness for my future. Even though I still have hard days, through my own personal work, I have cultivated resiliency and agency within my life. This lived experience has allowed for deep and transformative work with my clients. As your Therapist, I will connect to your choice of words, your expression of emotions and body language and ask pointed questions to bring awareness to the root causes of your presenting issues.

Do you long for friendship and belonging, but fear closeness? Do you get attached quickly but things don’t turn out the way you had hoped? Do you find yourself repeating patterns that you want to change, but are unsure of how, or where, to begin? You describe yourself as a giver but feel upset and disappointed when others don’t give back. You try to be the best version of yourself, but you’re exhausted. Experiences like these can leave us feeling unsafe. We feel lost and alone, desperately wanting change but not sure what steps to take.
