I have experience in supporting a variety of mental health challenges such as anxiety & depression, with a specific focus in coping with cancer, life threatening illness & chronic illness , caregiver support, grief & bereavement, low self-esteem & abandonment.
It is common for individuals to feel stuck in their suffering. Recurring issues take up space within the mind & body, making it difficult to live in the present & within one’s full potential. I use an integrative, trauma-informed & strengths-based approach to build therapeutic relationships rooted in connection, compassion & empathy to help transform this suffering into deep healing. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including mindfulness, visualization & relaxation to help clients process their experiences & unresolved trauma & to help regulate their emotions in a healthy way.

Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness .

I specialize in supporting adult who live with chronic illness & pain.
You're angry at your body, feeling disconnected from the people, places, activities in your life and restricted, unable to move forward. You've tried hard to manage your pain but it's either not working or you're terrified for the next flare-up or complication, uncertain of if or when that might occur. Fatigue, overwhelm or anxiety is getting in the way of things you want to do, the person you want to be or the life you want to have. Does this sound familiar? You're not alone. And though we likely share common struggles, I want to learn how these and related challenges are affecting you.

I had been a medical doctor before I became a psychologist. I changed professions because I realized that our thoughts, feelings, and behavioural habits have a powerful effect on our health and happiness but their potential to aid healing is often neglected in medicine. I feel privileged to work with clients who are on the journey of recovery and self-growth during and after adversities. I work with clients who have sleep problems, fatigue, stress, low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, chronic worry, obsessive thinking, medical or non-medical trauma-related difficulties, post-concussion syndrome, medical illnesses, or chronic pain.

When an illness or injury comes into your life, it can be destabilizing and sometimes debilitating. Life can feel like it has changed dramatically and you’re left trying to make sense of the experience. People often grieve who they were, while also struggling to figure out who they are in the world, at work, in their family and even in their own bodies. Does this feel familiar to you? I can help.

A decision to begin therapy can be an unnerving experience, and the first step can be daunting, to say the least. Therapy can be part of a transformative journey of inner exploration to gain insight into your thoughts, emotions, past experiences and relationship dynamics. Our goal in working together is to facilitate the development of more self-compassion, flexibility in your coping strategies and empowerment to abide by your personal values and your true self. I desire to help clients successfully navigate life’s many challenges through an understanding of themselves, recognizing their strengths and learning new skills.
