To help you, I use Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, as well as providin a space to guide self discovery, self expression, and self compassion. Mindfulness helps us to not get overwhelmed by our distressing thoughts and physical sensations and CBT provides techniques that help changing of thoughts, reactions, and habits. It is my belief that therapy helps heal, strengthen, and or change a person’s relationship with their self, history, and environment. This change can entail adopting coping skills, increasing awareness of how we treat our selves, and management of our environment.

I know it takes a lot of courage to face parts of ourselves that have felt alone, inadequate, ashamed, fearful or overwhelmed unable to imagine a way forward. As a holistic and relational therapist I am passionate about supporting individuals and couples gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the past experiences, traumas, and/or relationships that brought them here. Together, we will foster a space where compassion and vulnerability are possible and you can safely lower your walls, embrace your strengths and fullest self, and ultimately heal with a renewed sense of clarity, confidence, and hope in navigating a path forward.

Throughout life, we necessarily craft intricate methods for moving through the systems that shape our world. But what happens when our beliefs and narratives stop serving us, when they stop suppressing our pain? Feeling at odds with the various aspects of our identity can be exhausting, and my goal is to help you move towards the parts of yourself that seem dark and untouchable—a process that, over time, softens feelings of guilt and shame.

Do you ever feel like you woke up one day and everything just flipped upside down? When did life begin to feel so heavy and out of balance? Are you finding daily tasks to be challenging and feeling isolated or alone? Do you feel overwhelmed and unsupported? Are you having difficulties managing your stress levels? Has the recent change or upcoming change in your life been causing a great deal of stress, anxiety, anger, and/or sadness? Are you wondering if things will ever get better? I recognize how difficult life can be sometimes, especially during those dark moments with no clear direction in sight.
