My personal therapy style is structured, goal-oriented, solution-focused, collaborative, flexible, empathetic, and patient. I will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs and strive to create an environment where you can discuss difficult topics while feeling safe, understood, and cared for. By establishing a non-judgmental, person-focused atmosphere, one that is based on a concrete and flexible treatment plan, my primary goal is to help you develop insight and create lasting, meaningful change in your life.

As a trained psychotherapist, my experiences include working one-on-one with people dealing with depression, anxiety, personal concerns, relationship issues, grief and loss, trauma, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessional-compulsive disorder ( OCD ), guilt and shame, and issues around spirituality.
My treatment approach guides people through a self-examination into how they experience themselves, their relationships and their world. Symptoms are relieved through increased personal insight and finding new ways of perceiving old situations, allowing for the development of healthier behaviours. I view the therapist-client relationship as truly unique - one that can help, in a lasting way, to heal and steer personal relationships.

Areas of greatest experience include obsessive compulsive disorder (including purely obsessional), generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, health-related anxiety, depression, panic disorder, pre and postpartum mental health challenges (including tokophobia), and agoraphobia.
In clinical practice, I utilize a biopsychosocial approach that considers a client’s past, worldview, and perception of self. This allows for the holistic assessment of presenting issues, as well as individual client needs. My preferred therapeutic orientations to work with are cognitive behavioural therapy, exposure and response prevention, emotionally focused therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

My specialization is in tailoring exposure and response prevention (ERP) for clients who are experiencing symptoms of obsessive -compulsive disorder ( OCD ) such as intrusive thoughts and images, avoidance, and compulsive/safety-seeking behaviours.
My current focus is on integrating conventional psychotherapy and evidence-based psychedelic approaches, notably Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). I have received training in psychedelic-assisted-therapies from the University of Ottawa and am a practitioner and guardian in the Santo Daime Ayahuasca tradition. In 2020-2021, I coordinated the steering committee for “Entheogens & Psychedelics in Canada: proposal for a new paradigm” (Rochester et al., 2022) which made recommendations for ethical psychedelic assisted therapies in Canada.

My practice is centred on the assessment and treatment of OCD , PTSD, fear and anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD.
We all confront difficult challenges in life. We all go through times when our deepest fears and insecurities surface and wield control over our thoughts and actions, while our strengths and values fade out of focus and out of reach. We may be flooded with unwanted and worrisome thoughts; experience intense negative emotions; feel lonely and isolated from others, become increasingly unmotivated and unproductive; and develop difficulties sleeping, concentrating, and finding fulfillment in life. If you are going through a period of suffering, this is part of what makes you human.

These brains of ours don't come with instruction manuals - figuring out how to navigate life is tough enough, but can sometimes seem impossible when we experience mental health difficulties. I specialize in working with people with anxiety, OCD , and BPD. Therapy can be a strange process, I try to make it simple and straightforward. We get to know each other, and figure out if we’re a good fit. We get a clear picture of what the problems are, and what’s going wrong (and what’s going right) in your life.

I use cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness to treat OCD , depression, and anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety, panic, phobias, and social anxiety.
If you find that you struggle with worry, anxiety, low mood, perfectionism, or obsessions and compulsions, we can work together to help ease some of these painful experiences, improve coping, and help you create a more fulfilling life. I work with adults and older adolescent clients, providing them with a warm, empathic, nonjudgmental space so that they can work to understand their experiences, learn and practice new skills, improve symptoms, cope with stressors, and nurture what is important in their lives.

Accepting New Clients. I am so glad you are here and putting forth your needs first or maybe you are here because your friend or family member needs support or you are just tired of feeling this ‘Numb’ feeling and you want some answers as to “Why are you feeling this way? “Why don’t you feel happy or sad anymore?” or asking yourself “Why am I like this?”, What is wrong with me? If I have made you question yourself right now then you are in the right place with the right person.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
