At any age or stage of life, especially during hard transitions, we all benefit from talking to someone. Year by year our careers, studies, health, and relationships change and develop, which can cause turbulence in our lives and subsequently - our mental health. ​My practice focuses on balancing your own needs with all of the challenges that life might bring your way. I work with challenges such as anxiety, chronic illness , depression, eating disorders, life transitions, self-esteem, self-harming, stress, and social anxiety. I work through a trauma-informed & harm reduction approach.

The pain of loss can be overwhelming and feeling alone in your grief only makes it harder. I am here to listen and stand with you. Life is full of loss, whether it’s a death, the end of a relationship, a traumatic event, hopes and dreams lost, grief is all around. We experience anger and disbelief, guilt, and sadness. Our bodies pay the price as we struggle through our days. We look for support around us, but are sometimes let down by the response we get. I lived this reality while struggling through my own grief. You may have found yourself here because you dream of feeling better one day, but you fear it’s not possible.

Is your child now a stranger? Your once sweet baby grew up a bit and is now distant, aggressive, private, and a stranger. You never thought you'd see the day they'd cuss at you. It feels like a constant cycle of arguments, groundings, and harsh conversations that aren't working. They're yelling at you, you're yelling at them, and parenting just hurts right now. Nobody told you it would get this hard. Maybe it has escalated to drugs, gangs, and violence. All you know is you're afraid, frustrated, and panicked. You want your child back.

Are you or someone you are caring for facing changes related to aging that are causing you stress? These life transitions can include changes to health: physical decline and cognition(ie stroke, head injury). Coping with age related difficulties can lead to loss of independence and feelings of anxiety and depression. If you are a caregiver/partner, you may be experiencing extreme burden or burn out and feel unsupported and isolated. It can be difficult to determine what community supports are available, how to plan for the future or what to consider when moving from home to retirement living or a long term care home.

I had been a medical doctor before I became a psychologist. I changed professions because I realized that our thoughts, feelings, and behavioural habits have a powerful effect on our health and happiness but their potential to aid healing is often neglected in medicine. I feel privileged to work with clients who are on the journey of recovery and self-growth during and after adversities. I work with clients who have sleep problems, fatigue, stress, low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, chronic worry, obsessive thinking, medical or non-medical trauma-related difficulties, post-concussion syndrome, medical illnesses, or chronic pain.

Mindfulness is the process of befriending oneself unconditionally, with compassion and kindness. Through traumas, life transitions, mistakes, and successes, mindfulness can be that constant strategy that allows you to be grounded firmly in your healing. It is a holistic approach that synthesizes the mind, body and soul. My work is rooted in my personal practice of 10+ years and my professional social work experience of 16+ years. My practice is LGBTQIA2S-affirming, pro-fat and anti-racist. My areas of specialty are: anxiety, depression, chronic/terminal illness, grief, burnout, body image, relationships, and immigrant issues

Asking for support is a courageous first step in managing your mental health & wellness. It is easy to get stuck in unhelpful thought patterns that do not serve us. The good news is, we have more control over our thoughts and feelings than it may seem. You can learn to take charge of your behaviour with the right tools & techniques, to live a more fulfilled & happy life. I will work collaboratively with you to help set achievable goals that support empowerment, capacity building & resiliency. I believe in the importance of a strong therapeutic alliance where you feel safe to share so we can have relaxed & authentic conversations.

We all go through difficult times that need some assistance. Maybe you are not feeling as confident as you used to be because something has changed in your life, or maybe because things have stayed the same. You could be caught up in difficult thoughts and emotions that make it difficult to work towards the things you value. I have spent years assisting people with anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, life changes, chronic health issues, emotional eating, school and work-related stress. I also assist those struggling with family issues, infertility, third-party reproduction, adoption, postpartum support.

Disconnected. Broken. Hopeless. Powerless. Stuck. Many men I work with tell me this is how they feel. You may be struggling with anxiety, anger, depression, shame, guilt, grief, sadness, or disconnect - and struggle with an addiction (sex/porn/alcohol/marijuana/video games/gambling/fantasy) or underlying thoughts, beliefs, and feelings you have held since childhood. Relationships with those you care about, including the one with yourself, may have been impacted by your behaviours. You are not alone, and my goal is to work with you on ways to move past this problematic behaviour and develop better coping skills and resources.

We count it a privilege to support clients facing mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, grief, stress, career counselling, life transitions, substance use, low self-esteem, or trauma. To accomplish this, we encourage clients to ask...and answer...the WHY question. WHY am I feeling anxious? WHY can’t I make relationships work? WHY can’t I get out of this funk? WHY are my thoughts so scattered? WHY do I have trust issues? WHY I am unhappy? WHY do I allow others to treat me this way? WHY do I abuse drugs, food, or alcohol? WHY do I have trouble loving myself? WHY am I so afraid of being vulnerable?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Oakville?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Oakville specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
