My passion for my work, combined with my skills and diverse counselling experiences can help you find clarity, overcome obstacles, and live your life with more ease, acceptance and meaning.
Are you or your teen feeling alone, overwhelmed or experiencing grief? Reaching out for support is a courageous first step towards making changes or healing from a loss. I provide a compassionate and collaborative environment and specialize in the experience of grief, loss and life transitions including bereavement, end stages of life, chronic illness, dementia, caregiving, stress, anxiety, depression and emotional eating. When we are experiencing challenges, transitions or loss, we can benefit from an opportunity to explore what is impacting our emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological well-being, and to reflect on what we have lost and what remains.

I utilize aspects of Acceptance and Commitment, Narrative, and Cognitive and Mindfulness-based practices.
The fast-paced nature of our society rarely leaves space for us to explore our thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations. Therapy can help you discover new ways to enhance your self-awareness, improve your ability to cope with stress, and express your thoughts and emotions. Therapy can also provide you with the tools to face personal challenges and help you build strategies that encourage positive change. I am passionate about helping people who feel stuck in emotional patterns and who are seeking out a more fulfilled life.

When we’re caught in the struggle we can feel hopeless. We may notice things that use to help aren’t helping. We may have lost motivation to try, as a result of this. It’s common to get caught in the suggestions of others, or online searching for something that may help. We may not know where to start but know, we don’t want to keep feeling/thinking/living as is. Therapy services can help us find a starting point, then develop a plan and act on making change, all while supported by a regulated professional in the field.

Our experiences change the way we think, feel, and act . Difficult experiences make us believe that others can't be trusted, that there's something wrong with us, and that we're not good enough. We feel out of control of our emotions and at the same time detached from them. We're on edge, hypervigilant, and feel like something is going to go wrong. Decision making is difficult, we think others can't be trusted, our relationships suffer, we stop finding joy in things we once enjoyed, and we're haunted by our memories. Things don't have to stay this way for ever. Your difficult life experiences are NOT a life sentence.

Currently Accepting - Waitlist Over! Making change can feel like a daunting process. I am glad you are here. I support change through curiosity and being in the present moment. Though your past is important to help us understand your story, the focus will be on how we can change in the “here and now”. Suffering and distress can manifest in various ways, mentally, emotionally and physically. Listening and understanding to the cues your body gives you will arm you with the necessary tools to make changes in alignment with your goals. Only once we bring our thoughts, feelings and behaviours into our awareness can can we make change.

I have over 10 years of working experience in the mental health field. It is an honour to validate clients' unique strengths that can help them on their therapeutic journey to enhanced wellness.

I provide compassionate and strengths-based support for children, teens, and adults. No matter how big or small the concern, I understand that clients want to feel heard and understood. The clients I support experience feelings of overwhelm and helplessness in trying to cope with mental illness. As a woman and former athlete I understand the pressures of every day life. With 5+ years in early childhood assistance and youth work, I am aware and understand the struggles that may arise when coordinating an effective plan for care.

Whatever the concern, my clients are seeking professional support, to feel cared for and understood, to facilitate their ability to cope with their current situation, and desire someone to come alongside them as they determine how to go on. The clients I see are suffering from the weight of mental illness, feeling in the dark places of depression, the restlessness of anxiety, the inescapability of trauma, the helplessness with chronic pain, as well as other debilitating emotional challenges. I also see couples who are facing disruption in their connection, as well as clients adjusting to various changes in their lives.

If you're a South Asian adult (ages 22 to 35) attempting to navigate challenges around anxiety, self-esteem or relationships, I see and hear where you're coming from. Although you may view the world from a primarily western lens, you're probably still navigating life between two worlds. This can often involve trying to meet expectations that you've internalized over many years along with managing feelings of guilt, shame and resentment. In some cases, you may try to find relief from these difficult emotions by overusing social media, watching hours of entertainment, immersing yourself in work or using food as an escape.

The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with individuals and couples in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

Perhaps you can't get out of bed, or worry about things from the past, present and future. Your mind is fixated on problems. Nothing seems to interest you anymore. Your self criticism is at an all time high and you can't get unstuck. Maybe you are having anxiety or panic attacks. Or you feel numb, nothing. You wonder if you have anxiety or depression. Treating these moods are my speciality. I offer what many consider to be the gold standard of treatment cognitive behavioural therapy. I've got a ton of empathy and a ton tools in my toolbox. I'd be honoured to pull up a chair and help you sort it th rough.

There are times in our lives when we don’t feel quite like ourselves. Sometimes it’s hard to put our finger on it but friends and family are starting to notice. Other times, we can tell exactly what it is that’s causing problems in our lives. We may be feeling down, have lots of worry thoughts or perhaps we’re unhappy in relationships. All of the overthinking and dealing with the uncertainty of life is leading to sleep problems, low self-esteem and overall emotional exhaustion. You're not alone. We can work together towards finding peace and a way back to feeling good again.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Oshawa or for an Oshawa 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.
