I feel honoured and humbled to bare witness to their story, acknowledging the amount of strength and courage it takes to share such intimate and private details of their life. I specialize in helping people heal from trauma/past hurts & navigate relationship issues. We explore what matters most to you so you can take action steps toward a life rooted in your values to create the life you love, now!

I believe that all of us can get to where we want to be when we are met with compassion and acceptance .
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and I am accepting new clients. No one promised that things would be easy, but we don't always imagine that things could feel this hard. Life is difficult, especially when we feel like we're going through it alone. We may feel stuck, isolated, unworthy of love, or overcome by sadness, grief, or painful memories. We all get to a point when we feel this way, but it doesn't mean that we must continue to fight these feelings on our own. You deserve to get to a place where you can live a rich and meaningful life.

I believe that therapy can be a tool to foster self-development, self-understanding, self- acceptance and compassion.
Sometimes we feel exhausted, defeated, or like we are constantly battling with our brain and might need some assistance to sort through our thoughts, feelings, or emotions. Especially with the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19, which can present additional pressures. You may be experiencing the added stress of fear, anxiety, and/or financial struggles. Whatever the case may be, therapy can assist in navigating life stressors, building resiliency, and overcoming negative thought patterns that keep us "stuck". Using a biopsychosocial model, biological, psychological, and social factors are all considered to ensure a holistic approach.

I use evidence-based modalities like CBT, DBT, EFT, ACT , Narrative therapy and more to journey with you on your way through the hardships and struggles of life.
Research has shown that the most important factor in therapy is the therapeutic alliance, or plainly put, the relationship between the client and the therapist. It is this kind of relationship in counselling that has been identified as the fundamental catalyst to facilitate and enhance wellness, change and growth. This, in addition to the tools used from such modalities as CBT, DBT, EFT etc. that can help individuals to experience change, growth and increased well being. I'm honoured to help connect with you where you will hopefully feel encouraged, challenged, supported and helped to meet your goals and make changes in your life.

Self-exploration via the therapeutic process provides myriad benefits, some of which are increased self-awareness, self- acceptance and joy. Connecting with the right therapist makes all the difference so that past and present issues can be examined using empirically sound and effective strategies. The journey can be arduous however the benefits are lifelong. I believe in the healing and empowering effects of talk therapy (psychotherapy) and is also aware of how intimidating it can be to contact a therapist. I invite you to connect with me via email or phone conversation to begin the journey.

Do you feel stuck and unable to change? You’ve worked hard to get to where you are but find yourself asking “is this as good as it gets?”. You know that pain and stress are a normal part of life, but it throws you every time. You feel irritated when something doesn’t go as planned, or feel like you go from 0 to 100 within a matter of moments. You find yourself going into autopilot just to get through the day, or sometimes even crying all alone. Regardless of when life got hard, it’s the same old pattern. You want to feel better – you just don’t know how.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Newmarket or for a Newmarket ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
