You may be quietly asking yourself, is therapy for me? Will it help me? I want you to remember that, change is a constant.

I utilize a number of different therapeutic approaches to practice, namely: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).

As a therapist, my approach is grounded in non-judgment, empathy, and compassion.

I bring over a decade of experience from the social work sector where I provided comprehensive psychosocial support to diverse client populations. This allows me to draw from the varied experiences of individuals and proactively participate in their journeys of healing and wellness.

I strongly believe that when people feel seen and heard, there is enormous potential for successful change – this relationship, combined with a variety of therapeutic techniques and modalities, can then act as a catalyst to facilitate a deeper connection with self and others; you will be able to begin your journey of healing.
Encountering distress of any kind can be incredibly overwhelming, isolating, and even defeating to some. A sense of suffering is a universally innate human characteristic, and we sometimes require the assistance of someone outside of ourselves and our closest relationships in order to understand and/or identify the roots of these troubles. In doing so, we open the door and provide ourselves with the opportunity to live a life congruent to our individual needs, and inline with our true values.

I use evidence-based modalities like CBT, DBT, EFT, ACT , Narrative therapy and more to journey with you on your way towards discovery, honesty and healing.
Research has shown that the most important factor in therapy is the therapeutic alliance, or plainly put, the relationship between the client and the therapist. It is this kind of relationship in counselling that has been identified as the fundamental catalyst to facilitate and enhance wellness, change and growth. This, in addition to the tools used from such modalities as CBT, DBT, mindfulness, EFT etc. can help individuals to experience change, growth and increased well being. I'm honoured to help create a safe space where you will hopefully feel encouraged, challenged, supported and helped to meet your goals and make changes.

I believe in an acceptance -based approach, meaning that I don't view clients as being broken or having something to fix.
Clients who want to dig deeper and understand the root of their reactions/concerns are clients who tend to love therapy with me. For these clients, it's about the experience of self-understanding, compassion, and clarity that leads to healing. Clients who need someone to understand where they are coming from, who do not want advice or opinions, rather to be heard and understood and to understand themselves better.

Welcome. Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self- acceptance - while determining new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values. Giving consideration to the 'whole' you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.

It can be challenging to piece it together all on your own, but I will actively listen to you and guide you through the process of self- acceptance .
At some point or another, we have all encountered uncertainties that have surely knocked us down, but I believe that these hardships can be framed in a better and more constructive way and together, working side-by-side, we will develop the right coping strategies, build up your personal strengths, and foster endless self-love. Sometimes, what we consider weaknesses are actually concealed strengths and this will be an opportunity to work towards achieving meaningful personal growth. Trust and collaboration are my fundamental pillars of practice, and I believe that these pillars are crucial towards obtaining substantive results.

A lot of the time, our first instinct is to seek support when we may feel we are drowning in our current struggles. The first step is always the hardest, in where we fear we will not be understood. My belief is that because each one of us is unique, our struggles and thus our journey in healing will be too. I aim to be an anchor in these turbulent times and be a beacon of unfiltered, unconditional and non-judgemental space in exploring our internal processes. In collaboration, we can address motivational, acceptance , behavioural, cognitive, social, biological and cultural aspects that can work in tandem in maintaining our struggles.
