I support individuals with challenges related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma and abuse, substance use, relationship issues, connection and belonging, loss and grief, and stressful life changes. Through providing warm, experiential and compassionate support I aim to create a space that feels accepting, empowering and has lots of room for exploration. I emphasize a holistic approach and the importance of exploring the mind body connection in healing. All of my work is trauma informed and rooted in anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. My practice welcomes individuals of diverse gender identities, sexualities, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, ages, abilities, and lifestyles.

Nothing ever really prepares us as parents for the times when things don't go as we had hoped for with our child - particularly in regard to developmental, behavioural, or mental health issues that we are faced with. I'm here to help shoulder some of the weight you've been carrying, and provide a bridge for you in helping your child to reach their full potential. Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. Please note that I am currently focusing on children who are 0 to 5 years of age, as well as working through my waitlist.

Do you feel disconnected or misunderstood? Are you having a hard time understanding your feelings, or feel stuck? Using an anti-oppressive approach, I work with individuals dealing with trauma, relationship issues, marginalization, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and deepening your understanding of yourself. I use a combination of therapy techniques taking your experiences and therapeutic best practices into consideration. I am trauma-informed, solution-focused and promote self-compassion. I always draw on strengths and for some clients, I use art therapy to explore challenging or persistent emotions.

Does your body feel "wrong" to you? Do you want to feel a sense of peace about who you are? Do you want a greater sense of safety in your body? Are relationships challenging for you and you are unsure why? You have done some reflection or been to therapy before, thought you learned the skills and strategies. Maybe you were able to successfully manage eating disorder symptoms, anxiety etc, for a while, but continue to experience inner conflict. You continue to not feel at peace about yourself, you continue to not accept yourself.

Hi there. I'm so happy you are reaching out for support. As humans, we are all shaped and transformed by the relationships and experiences we've had. When we feel overwhelmed, numb, off balance or tangled up, a kind and patient relationship in therapy can help us find steady footing and clarity again, giving us the resilience to feel trust within, adapt and thrive. Whether you are a youth or adult looking to strengthen relationships, build confidence, explore ways to communicate or unravel anxiety, grief, depression, or trauma, I am here as your guide.

Whether you’re feeling anxious, uncertain, unsupported in your relationships, or going through difficult emotions, I believe that you’re coping with it the best way you can. We're not meant to live life “toughing it out” on our own. When you go through times of feeling isolated, or find it challenging to receive support or reach out to family and friends, therapy can be a place where you don’t have to do it alone. Good therapy rests on a sense of connection with your therapist. That's why I offer a free 20-minute consultation – for you to find out how you are with me, and how I am with you, before taking the next step.

I would like to offer you my appreciation on how important the step you are giving right now is. Finding a psychotherapist can be daunting or disconcerting at first but the impulse that brought you here means you want things to be different, right? Maybe with less anxiety, less suffering or less loneliness. Maybe with more space to be who you are and experience more easiness to relate to others. Past traumas, being raised in non-attuned contexts and any form of oppression impose ruptures to the dialog between us and others and the internal parts of our self. These cracks generate conflicts, suffering, shame, and a self-alienation.

I am a therapist who helps anxious people struggling with stress, burn out, body image and perfectionism. Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or uncertain? The challenges of the past few years have pushed so many of us beyond our limits. Feeling drained or full of worry and doubt have become commonplace. It might seem like something needs to shift, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Maybe you feel like you already "know what to do", but are just having trouble getting it done? Let me show you how to put your thoughts into actions and transform your life!

Our lives and all the intersecting parts can be too much to bear at times. Carrying around trauma, negative self-talk and heavy emotions is exhausting and impacts the mind/body. Having someone actively listen without blame, shame or judgment can be the life line needed when your struggling to cope, or just seeking balance and change. I am a Registered Social Worker and have over 18 years of experience working with individuals with complex mental health/addiction issues. I provide professional and confidential counselling to address a number of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, life transitions, relationship issues.

I use an evidence-based approach, meaning the treatments I use are proven effective through scientific research and are tailored to individual client needs. Treatment is usually short-term, active, and focused on achieving results.

Years ago whilst dealing with some health issues that affected me both mentally and physically a mentor/counsellor told me to “change my thoughts, in order to change my world. Because my present circumstances at the time did not determine were I go, but where I started." Hence, I do understand how mental and physical struggles can impact one's life and that admitting to those struggles and asking for help is never easy. I am here to walk alongside you on the journey to healing and restoration.

I am registered to provide virtual counselling to residents of Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia. Life can present us with various challenges that can be difficult to work through on our own. We don’t often take the time to sit with our emotions and thoughts. I will encourage you to slow down and reflect while offering a curious and compassionate perspective and a safe and non-judgmental space where you feel heard and supported. We will work together to make sense of your experiences and move towards the change you are hoping for in your life.

At times of overwhelm or crossroads, we can feel so lost or alone that any effort to reach out feels impossible. Let alone to do therapy which can take a look at things that cause pain, isolation, or despair. Yeah, sign me up for that asap.?! But instability may interfere more than is bearable and relationships, work and self-care can seem unmanageable. We all need a place for ourselves at times like this. A safe place to decompress, access our experience and voice, and sift through what we've been going through. Growth and change can arise from places we left unattended, neglected or misunderstood for a long time.

I have worked in the field of addiction for three years now. I have explored the depths of my own mind with traditional and spiritual medicines. The default mode network--the chatter that keeps the mind locked in addiction, is something we work to break free from.

Something is wrong, but we can't quite grasp what. We search for a better understanding of ourselves in order to solve our emotional and psychological discontent. We think about the events of the day, relationships, childhood and the past. Still, something doesn't seem right. We act and feel in ways that create discord. I provide psychotherapy for people who are interested in looking for the deeper meaning behind the discomfort in their lives. The goal is to be able to have more meaningful relationships, fulfilling work and societal contributions, as well as the capacity to bear the difficulties that are part of living fully.

In the wake of the current global circumstances, increased isolation, and fear of uncertainty, you may be thinking that now is the time to have a closer look at your mental health and coping skills. You may find that the increased time to be with your thoughts has you wanting to make sense of the past and how it may be currently affecting you. You may be experiencing increased loneliness or strained relationships. You have understandable fears about the future and are trying make sense of underlying thoughts and feelings. You want to live your life in a meaningful way under difficult circumstances.
