My goal is to foster a safe therapeutic environment for clients struggling with mood, relationships, addictions, and school/work-related stress. Setting an empathic, yet structured tone to each session, I am able to guide those seeking resolution toward discovering their own solutions. I have found that by helping clients build a deeper awareness of their mind-body connection, they develop greater self-regulation, a healthier sense of self and more satisfying interpersonal relationships.

Do you ever feel stuck inside your head with no way out and the crippling anxiety intensifies? Sometimes talking to others can seem impossible, which can leave you feeling isolated and alone. Together, we can work towards uncovering the deeper meaning behind your symptoms and customize a treatment plan to help ease and work through your distress. Often, we’re so consumed by our intrusive thoughts that we forget to enjoy what’s happening right in front of us. My own therapeutic journey taught me to become more in tune with myself. I learned to appreciate the little things that we normally take for granted and to slow down.

We all encounter life experiences that shape how we view ourselves and our world. They may be relationship breakdowns, major traumas, the loss of a family pet, becoming a parent, or receiving a life-changing diagnosis. Any of these challenges can leave us feeling overwhelmed with emotions like fear, sadness, grief and anxiety, and can make it difficult to reach our goals and move towards the life we want for ourselves. Each individual is the expert of their lives & my role is to collaborate with you to process and make sense of difficult experiences to enhance coping, strengthen positive self-regard and build a life worth living.

Are you or your child struggling? Are you concerned about handling your emotions? Does your child have difficulty regulating their emotions, controlling anger, or having social difficulties? Perhaps you are worried about how your child is coping with recent changes in the family, such as separation or divorce? You don’t have to be alone! Parenting is the most invested relationship one can partake in. There are many challenges involved in guiding little people towards becoming adults and life can force families to face events that impact children's ability to function successfully within their daily environments.

Accepting New Clients! Beginning therapy can often feel intimidating. You are entering the unknown and stepping out of your comfort zone. Taking that first step is not easy, especially when it can bring up confusing feelings, anxiety, and overwhelm.

Life is full of challenges. Do you feel you're not the person you would like to be? Do you feel like your own worst enemy? Are old habits getting in the way? Are your life situations making it difficult to cope? Do you feel you lack the tools or skills to handle adversities? Past traumas, current difficulties, and mental health experiences can impact our daily lives and our ability to experience joy and fulfillment. You can often feel suppressed, stifled, and like you are just making it through the days. Making positive changes and developing a meaningful life can feel almost impossible.

As life unfolds, we face challenges that require us to adjust and adapt. Therapy can help us gain a clearer understanding of the obstacles and learn new ways of overcoming them to create the life that we want. I work with individuals who are struggling with low mood, anxiety, stress, grief, anger, relationship issues, low self esteem and self-criticism, among others. In sessions, I strive to provide a safe, inclusive, and compassionate environment to explore difficult or painful thoughts and feelings, to gain a greater sense of clarity and to feel empowered to change the things that are limiting your connection to self and others.

As people of colour, we might find ourselves feeling stuck, overwhelmed by emotions such as anxiety, sadness or anger and not knowing why we feel the way we do. Maybe our past experiences are showing up, evoking feelings of helplessness or thoughts that you are alone. Life can be complex, full of cultural dissonance and relationships that are difficult to navigate. I want to share that it does not have to remain this way. I can't guarantee that hard feelings or life's problems will go away (I wish I could!), but you can still learn ways to better understand your emotions, try new ways to cope and experience hope and healing.

Life is full of challenges both expected and unexpected. It is my goal to help you navigate a path through your current circumstances whatever they may be. Loss is a particular challenge which affects all of us. It can be the loss of a loved one, an ability, a relationship, or a job. I have years of experience helping people move forward from loss or trauma. I have also worked to help young adults navigate transitions that are often a source of anxiety or depression.

I specialize in working with clients who feel stuck, depressed, or anxious. Perhaps you sense there is more to life, but are not sure how to access your potential. It may be that you are struggling with meeting your own needs due to focusing on others. You are ready to focus on your healing. I also work with couples, drawing on the Gottman method, as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy and mindfulness strategies. I see each person individually before we set out on our couples therapy journey together. I believe in the power of therapy to return couples to a place of love, support, and joy.

The relationship that we share will allow you to be honest with your feelings and unload the weight that you have been holding onto for a long time.

Does life feel controlled by your emotions? Maybe it’s as anxiety: feeling so overwhelmed by stress, worry, or racing thoughts that it feels impossible to slow down. Perhaps you no longer feel the energy or motivation you used to—it’s a struggle to even get out of bed (if you slept at at all). You’re noticing the ways experiences from your past are playing out in your relationships, but don’t know how to change it. It’s like you don’t recognize yourself anymore. Things used to be different, and you want to get back to the kind of life you know is possible. You just need some support to get there.
