As a therapist, my role in working with high-achieving individuals is to be present; witness you as you are without judgment; dissolve your isolation; embody empathic understanding grounded in experience; assist you to gain the skills & perspective to overcome obstacles; support you through necessary change; guide you in reclaiming authenticity, joy, & creativity. Through our work in the synergistic process of Gestalt & Somatic Therapy, you will sense yourself becoming more deeply attuned to your body & feelings. From this heightened state of awareness, you will be supported in integrating repressed, disowned, parts of yourself.

I use an integrative approach with clients, with a basis in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy or 'parts work', a trauma-informed, mindfulness based modality, and I draw from somatic and behavioural interventions to invite change and acceptance in your life.
There are times in our lives that we cannot get a handle on the challenges in our life. Sometimes our genetics play a role, i.e. intergenerational traumas, and other times, life, and all its stressors gets overwhelming. For some, systemic barriers exist that impede a capacity for wellness. During these times, it is helpful to work with a trained therapist to support you as you find your way back to your healing, happiness and inner peace. Therapy is a process of growth, unlearning, and self-discovery. In my therapy sessions, I promote behavioral transformation and inner peace by encouraging curiosity, compassion and acceptance.

I use an integrative approach, drawing primarily from ACT, mindfulness, somatic practices, & narrative therapy.
I believe therapy is about supporting your innate strengths and wisdom. Whether you’re struggling to slow down, afraid of failing, stuck, or never feel good enough (been there); or you're done with this pandemic (me too), I will listen and support you in cultivating greater awareness and compassion. I specialize in supporting folks struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, self discovery, inner criticism, inadequacy, and difficult transitions (career, school, relationships). We'll discuss your goals, reconnect with your values, and explore ways to move through life's difficulties so you can do more of what matters to you.

I work from an integrative approach which is rooted in a mindfulness, compassion focused, solution focused therapy that incorporates experiential, somatic , and emotion focused therapy.
Our work together involves deepening the connection with yourself, so you become aware of what you need, and how to give it to yourself. Through being present and mindful to our current experiences, we can start to become more sensitive and aware of our psychological, emotional, and bodily experiences. To engage with compassion, curiosity, and without judgement can bring greater clarity into what is troubling us, and bring us closer to living in greater alignment with our most authentic self.

That’s the gift of somatic & experiential learning! This means trusting the wisdom of your body, presence, and intuition.
When we’re facing a major life crisis or wanting to unpack the trauma of our childhood, anxiety and depression often get in the way and create a form of paralysis. In such painful situations how change can occur is extremely difficult to imagine. Psychotherapy is an organic process to help us change; seek our authentic self, develop our relationships with others, and to discover how to regulate our nervous system. We can relearn how to play i.e., by uncovering our (temporarily) lost sense of joy. We can reframe and update the self so as to create tools helping us navigate life’s beauty and paradoxes!

My approach draws on Attachment-based, Somatic , and Experiential modalities.
Many of us go through life experiences that leave us feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and struggling to relate meaningfully with others. I believe deeply in our innate capacity to heal, grow, and connect; sometimes we just need support and guidance on that journey. Whether working with individuals or couples, I prioritize creating a safe, warm, and attentive space to explore your challenges and generate new ways of being with yourself, with each other, and in the world.

When useful, I work from a spiritual base using mindfulness, meditation and, somatic therapies.
I see people who want better relationships with themselves, those close to them, friends and families. Sometimes people are not quite certain what is getting in the way of having those better relationships and sometimes people know. Often there is some emotional issue, either from the past or one arising in the present that is getting in the way. Many people want to feel more connected, have fewer conflicts in their relationships. In families, sometimes there are emotional patterns or behavioural patterns that are getting in the way of being more connected with each other.

In these fields, I blend trauma-informed, gestalt therapy with somatic interventions to support you in your healing.
I believe we are doing the best we can with the tools available. From my perspective, trauma can get locked in the body if there isn't enough safety to respond in the moment. I will support you in building on the wisdom you already have, and will creatively explore with you the places you feel stuck, shaky, or unmet. Through a relational and experiential process, I will bring attention and compassion to your suffering and untended needs. You can expect me to be warm, direct, steady, and responsive. Additionally, I am Queer & Trans affirming, kink-aware, and knowledgeable around polyamory/non monogamy.

My practice draws on existential, humanistic and psychodynamic traditions of Western psychology and is grounded in the wisdom of Eastern philosophies, mindfulness and somatic work.
Emotional pain is an inherent part of the human experience, but you don’t have to go through it alone. In our therapy, we will work thorough your struggles and together create a clear path for you to feel in control and content with your life. You'll enter a non-judgmental space where you can truly be you, with the ability to express your innermost thoughts and feelings. I will meet you where you are in your journey with acceptance and compassion. I work with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, attachment issues and interpersonal concerns such as work, family, intimate partnerships and friendships.

My technique is grounded in traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; which is a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma.
Often we seek therapy because something in our life is not working for us. We are tired of feeling chronically overwhelmed, we may be unsure of how to manage our relationships, or want to stop negative patterns that no longer serve us. I appreciate that it takes courage to explore our inner world of thoughts and feelings. I am a skilled and compassionate therapist who has supported hundreds of clients on their healing journey as they learn new ways to cope with stress and better navigate their emotional reactions and relationships. Extra support is often the ingredient clients need to overcome significant hurdles in life.
