Accepting new clients – Hi I know that finding the right therapist can be an intimidating process, I would like to do my best to make this as comfortable and easy as possible. I’m going to lay out some information about how I work and how that may impact you, if you have any questions or you want to meet, please feel free to reach out! To start, my top priority in working with you is ensuring you feel safe discussing whatever is going on in your life. From there we can work at overcoming obstacles, clarifying goals, or anything else we agree on and see as productive and beneficial for you.

Burnout? It is so hard to feel happy and balanced when we’re caught in a people-pleasing merry-go-round and constant anxiety. People-pleasers who experience anxiety can often feel worthless and wonder who they can turn to. I help anxious people-pleasers struggling to manage their time and feel appreciated in their busy lives improve their relationships by finding a better appreciation for themselves. This is done by addressing past traumatic events and relationships and cultivating your strengths! Together, we can hold the space for your pain to open the door to happiness.

Is life a little overwhelming right now? Are you looking for someone to help support you as you make some changes or explore options? Therapy can offer a space where you feel supported, valued, able, and safe to explore any topics that life may throw at you - whether that be fertility, pregnancy loss, stress management, relationship issues, or becoming a new parent.

It is possible to find resilience and meaningful new paths - even with difficulties such as anxious or depressed feelings, control over emotions, LGBTQIA2S+ issues, relationship crises, feeling lost or without sense of meaning, past traumatic experience, aging, surviving cancer, or dealing with loss. I care that women find ways to go out into the world to fulfill themselves, that being queer is defined by the story of self, and that the grip of painful or negative feelings is relaxed so solutions can emerge toward self-growth and self-development,.

Hello. Many people are negatively affected by anxiety and depression. However it's sometimes difficult to figure out why. Similarly many people find relationships difficult and complicated. Both psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) offer quick, effective ways to cut through symptoms and understand what is underlying our challenges. My work often employs short-term techniques, exploring thoughts and feelings around relationships, self-esteem or historical trauma, using a focussed and directed, but nurturing approach. I also offer long-term therapy when we need extra time to explore more complex issues.

Now accepting new clients! I utilize a relational psychodynamic approach in working with clients in order to facilitate change and achieve the the best therapeutic outcomes. I strongly believe empathy and compassion are key components in the success of the therapeutic process, and I always offer a space where clients can feel heard, secure and validated. At the same time, I believe that through a relational approach, clients can gain profound insight into unconscious relationship patterns.

My clients are looking to lead a balanced life with the perspective and tools to face challenges with resilience and optimism. Addictions, anxiety, depression, or negative thinking might be getting in the way of relationship or life goals. My clients are hoping to find practical problem solving in their sessions with me but also build bigger picture thinking and perhaps even get into the big philosophical questions that are a part of making life feel worth living. They value a genuine, human experience with an open-minded, culturally sensitive supporter, that allows them to tap into their own resources for long term well-being.

For many of the people I work with, there is an addictive substance or behaviour present in their life that they can't remove and has become problematic for them in their relationships, in their ability to work, and in their mental and/or physical wellbeing. Many have tried to stop on their own but haven't been able to get more than a few months of abstinence before going back to the addictive substance or behaviour and they understand they need someone with experience to guide them in their efforts. The goals vary from person to person and I work with each individual to reach their specific goal of what a healthier life looks like.

Have you been struggling to feel connected to yourself and others? Do you feel overwhelmed with stress, loss, and pain? Many of us push away our needs, or we might be taught from a young age to hide our pain and be strong for others. This often leads to long-term issues for our mind and body. During our work together, I offer a custom approach for each of my clients. I start with understanding where you are now and the challenges you are facing. We will work together as a team to reach your unique goals in a safe, empathetic, and compassionate environment.
