I also work with challenges in the areas of loss, separation, divorce, step-parenting, co-parenting, adoption , fostering, and perinatal health.
Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. If you or your loved one (child, adolescent, or partner) seems to be stuck in repeating behaviours, or patterns that are stretching your patience and energy reserves, you've come to the right place. I'm here to help shoulder some of the emotional weight you've been carrying, and to let you know there is hope, tangible tools and strategies, and positive change on the other side of bravely stepping into this process.

Accepting new clients! - Choosing to priortize yourself is a real challenge in the young parenting years. Some days it can feel as if you will never be enough, and you don’t know how to fix things. Everyone needs you, and there isn’t even a moment to pee in peace. The messes grow exponentially… maybe it’s a win if everyone is fed and safe by the end of each day. Maybe you feel like you are drowning. I felt the same at that stage. Maybe you are struggling with caregiving, fertility, adoption or medical issues in the family. Maybe you are an aunt, uncle, grandparent or other guardian. And you just. can’t. cope. anymore. Let's talk!

In starting therapy or returning to it, you may be seeking someone to talk to, psychological perspectives, tools and resources, and change. You may be struggling with depression, anxiety, or any of the long list of names given to conditions we can struggle with. My approach is client-centered as you are the expert on you, and I prefer to not pathologize and stigmatize. My perspective is that there are causes and contributors to the thoughts, feelings and behaviours which we find most difficult, and which can become traits and labels - and yet also - which can be changed.

Therapy can sometimes feel difficult. It can be painful to look at how other people or institutions have affected our lives, or at how we have affected other people's. It is no mystery that relationships are complicated, but we can try to talk about them. We can start the process of unwinding your life, so that we can really look at it. Focusing on your needs is not selfish, despite the messaging we receive. Your life is valuable and it absolutely matters.

Psychoanalysis is a way to understand and overcome different levels and forms of stress generated by challenging events or deficits occurring in human life. Those undesirable events are sometimes too intense to affect human personality and cause suffering and challenging existential moments. In those moments, we feel the emotional need for personal psychological support that implies not only professional readiness and personal maturity to help but also concrete humanistic values cultivated in our professional ethics. The therapist's ability to connect on an emotional level and arrive at a rational understanding > > >

With 10+ years as a social worker, helping individuals, couples and families process trauma, personal and interrelational issues, intergenerational trauma, societal oppression, etc., I am excited to offer quality, holistic psychotherapy support to anyone interested in deep, collaborative and meaningful therapy journey. Self-care can mean so many different things, both personally and culturally - and for some, it means having the chance to explore and unpack their unique life experience. Therapy can be one of the most profound, cathartic, exciting and challenging experiences in a person's self-development. It's an incredible journ

Adoption Counsellors
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
