With a deep appreciation for the complexity of human experience my practice is rooted in a collaborative, creative, and integrated approach drawing from Narrative Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Person-Centred, and Mindfulness-based and Somatic informed modalities while weaving in aspects of psychodynamic , cultural-relational, and attachment theory.
By gently meeting clients where they are, I bring authenticity, compassion, and curiosity to the therapeutic relationship while striving to nurture a safe space where they are able to explore their inner-most concerns, curiosities, and trauma with openness and non-judgement. I am passionate about supporting folks find clarity and re-connection with themselves and the world around them as they step into their inner wisdom and power to foster meaningful life change. Areas of focus include: trauma, relationships, sexuality, gender identity, self-esteem, shame, life transitions, and existential issues.

I believe that every person has the strength and will to achieve their desired outcomes. My role is to provide you with the tools, support, education, accountability, and environment to help you get there. For shorter-term treatment we will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. For longer-term therapy, we will also draw on Psychodynamic Therapy and Self Psychology. Regardless of the approach, I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust is the key.

I use an integrated approach that incorporates (to name a few) Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.
You don't need to suffer, and you deserve to feel better. Anxious, Worried, Overwhelmed, or Sad? Therapy can help. I specialize in working with people who have (diagnosed or undiagnosed) Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, and Perfectionism. My style is warm, direct, validating, non-judgmental, friendly. I can help you learn new ways of coping, gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and guide/support you in making meaningful change in your life. I see importance in getting to the root cause (the ‘why’) of the issues you’re experiencing, rather than only treating symptoms.

I work through the Psychodynamic framework.
If you are reading this, you have already made one of the bravest steps towards help and I commend you for taking this first step toward life-long change. One of the reasons I am passionate about my work is because I am blown away by the courage and resilience it takes to embark on therapy. I believe that psychotherapy is first and foremost about relationship – to be able to delve into even the scariest of topics with someone that you trust. Therefore, I do not believe in a ‘band-aid’ approach, but work to create lasting change by seeing how therapy, and our relationship, can acutally be a microcasm for changing your outside world.

Life can feel overwhelming at times. Uncertainty, unexpected challenges and self-doubt can weigh us down. Carrying such weight can cause us to experience fatigue, worry, sleepless nights, and unwanted behaviours, thoughts and emotions. What if some of that weight could be lifted. I offer compassionate care for people with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief and trauma. Based on an integrative mix of both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, I endeavour to inspire compassionate self-understanding with an aim towards inner healing.

I work from a psychodynamic framework.
(Currently I have very limited availability. If we can find space, I am accepting new clients who have been fully vaccinated for in-person sessions only.) Entering therapy can be a daunting decision. What can I tell you that might make this step easier? Every person's therapy is unique. It will follow your life, both past and present. Primarily, therapy will be a safe space where every worry or concern you have will be acceptable for discussion and analysis. It may frequently be difficult. I can assure you that 'the talking cure' can bring about deep and long-lasting change in your life.

The reasons for pursuing counselling are as unique as the individual seeking it out. There could be questions around an emerging identity, a difficult relationship or social issue, a separation/divorce or a child’s school difficulties or emotional distress. Whatever the presenting issue is for clients, there is most often over- whelming feelings of worry, sadness and confusion.
