We often believe we must suffer on our own, having learned to be fiercely independent. Our suffering can show up as lack of motivation, burn-out, isolation, unhelpful habits, abuse, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, feeling stuck, or feeling like we just need to survive the day to day. We may even believe that we are meant to suffer. Perhaps we might believe that we cannot reach our potential or reach out for help, or we have forgotten who we are. When we receive the support that we need, we can all reach our full potential, regardless of what happened to us.

Living in today's world can be overwhelmed with stress, constant worries, depression, low self esteem, relationship struggles, and social emotional concerns for many of us especially our kids & teens and their families. Kids and teens are our future and for many the first step towards vulnerability, courage and healing begins with the desire to live differently and reaching out for the support needed to do so. If your child or teen is struggling with social emotional concerns, an Eating Disorder, family conflict or traumatic experiences and as a family you are curious about therapy and change I welcome you.

Trauma, addiction, and mental health struggles are all too familiar for countless people in Canada. These challenges often feel like overwhelming mountains, blocking the light and making it hard to see the path ahead. Yet, there is no reason for anyone to walk this path alone. My approach to holistic care is neither formulaic nor prescriptive. Rather, it is compassionate and patient. I blend evidence-based therapies, such as CBT, ACT, DBT with somatic techniques and energy medicine to nurture and support one meaningful step at a time.

In my practice, I work mainly with children, youth and their families. I offer individual therapy for children/youth who struggle with issues like self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bullying, emotional regulation and parent-teen conflict. Parent sessions are recommended along side the child's therapy. In certain situations, I provide parent coaching for those who want to reflect upon themselves and develop better parenting strategies. For those seeking individual and family therapy, my hope is to offer a space where each person can talk without shame and begin to compose the life they desire.

At times, we can find ourselves dealing with thoughts, feelings and life events that leave us experiencing profound emotions like loss, confusion or sadness. Whether the cause is based on childhood events, relationships, work or some unexpected occurrence, the effects are often fairly similar. It may be useful to consider that the goal of therapy is to bring about some kind of change - for example, going from where you are now (distress) to where you want to be (calm and centred). It's a life-changing journey I have had the privilege to accompany many clients on.

Our landscape has changed. Our capacity for contribution is tied to our capacity to navigate life with confidence. We live in an era of unprecedented stress, pressure and overwhelm. A lack of confidence and increased disconnection is a strong predictor of overall dissatisfaction in life and decreased mental health. People are struggling more than ever, to navigate their life and need real solutions. Most therapy scratches the surface and leaves us frustrated and hopeless. Our method is different. We provide a practical, evidence-based framework to build confidence and connection quickly, and for the long.

I am passionate about supporting others in their personal and spiritual growth. I help people going through major life transitions achieve peace of mind, symptom relief, and bring back a feeling of self-worth, acceptance and self-esteem. You could say I help people bring back their aliveness while integrating different approaches to match the therapy to the individual needs of the client. My work is based on the theoretical perspective that our sense of self forms and develops in relationship, particularly with caregivers. Therefore, deep change occurs through the new and intentional relational experience that is co-created in therapy.

What if your or your partner’s anger is actually a desire for a deeper connection? It’s a paradox that angry reactions push our partners/family/friends away when what we need is closeness. Hurt or fear could be behind anger. Or perhaps underlying depression, anxiety or trauma. Anger could be expressed harshly, silently or many ways in between; either way it builds walls. Whatever stands in the way of better connections can be uprooted and healed. Negative emotions and walls of anger don’t have to remain. You can overcome them and build the relationships you have longed for.
