All of us experience stressors and struggles in our lives. Essentially, it is about how we process these situations that can leave long-lasting impacts. There is no right or wrong way in the processing of these events, rather there are healthy versus unhealthy coping skills. My role is to facilitate your emotional and mental health journey, to aid in building up resiliency so that you are better able to manage and work through those stressors.

Sometimes life seems difficult, and we may feel like nothing is working. We may feel lonely, isolated, filled with self-doubt, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, hopeless, and helpless. We long for connections, while afraid of being hurt. We hope that someone can listen to us and validate our emotions, suffering, and struggles; we hope to be seen, heard, and cared for. However, it can be scary to reach out for support, showing our vulnerabilities and not knowing how others will respond to them. My wish is to create a safe space for you to share your experiences, struggles, and emotions. I am here to be with you and listen to you.

When your past lives on, you aren’t being fair to your future! You may feel like you are reliving the same old story and stuck in a repetitive pattern of negative thoughts, behaviour, and emotions with no way out. As a therapist, I walk with you to revisit these old stories and guide you to change this pattern. We will have an open conversation where you bring the knowledge of your life and I bring the knowledge of how a change can happen. My experience as a therapist has taught me that people need to be understood in an open, nonjudgmental, supportive and nurturing environment. Part of my job is to provide this environment.

Your reasons for embarking on this path and the experiences you have had are unique to you. Many of us have had to navigate systems of oppression while feeling alone, scared, frustrated, overwhelmed, exhausted and unsure of what may come next. Sharing your experiences may bring relief, reveal unconscious tendencies and deepen your self-awareness. Therapy is not only for the challenging times - it can be a place to pause, reflect and refocus. Together, we will help you find meaning, direction, clarity and healing.

You may be experiencing a mix of anxiety, panic, burnout, physical pain, sadness, anger or frustration with others and/or yourself. You may have noticed a pattern you're unhappy with or a specific situation that replays in your mind. The stress you're experiencing may be related to a difficult time in your past, your present, including injury, health anxiety, work or sport performance, anticipating the future, or a combination.
