My practice focuses on processing of complex- trauma (e.
"Why does being me feel so difficult sometimes?" If you’re asking this question, it's perhaps because what used to help you cope with life is no longer working. But your suffering is not your fault. I'll walk with you on your journey towards discovering and unburdening the parts, feelings, and needs in yourself that have been denied to speak. I work predominantly with racialized, immigrant and LGBTQ+ people experiencing anxiety, depression, self-criticism, emotional difficulties and other complex- PTSD symptoms. My goal as your therapist is to help you write a new self narrative that is more liveable, authentic, and empowering.

I work with families of children who: are highly sensitive; have histories of trauma or loss (including adoption); have behavioural or developmental challenges; are on the Autism spectrum; are neurodivergent; etc.
Nothing ever really prepares us as parents for the times when things don't go as we had hoped for with our child - particularly in regard to developmental, behavioural, or mental health issues that we are faced with. I'm here to help shoulder some of the weight you've been carrying, and provide a bridge for you in helping your child to reach their full potential. Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. Please note that I am currently focusing on children who are 0 to 5 years of age, as well as working through my waitlist.

I have particular expertise in treating trauma / PTSD and the issues that follow from it, like depression and relationship conflict.
As a registered Clinical Psychologist, I help clients address a wide variety of issues such as those related to mental health (e.g., anxiety, depression), relationships, work/school functioning, life transitions, and self-discovery. I collaborate with clients to build a trusting relationship, set specific goals, develop skills, and gain insights that can lead to relief from distress and improved lives. I use an evidence-based approach, meaning the treatments I use are proven effective through scientific research and are tailored to individual client needs. Treatment is usually short-term, active, and focused on achieving results.

I work with a variety of couples and individual clients in my practise, with a range of concerns including; depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship problems, life changes, trauma recovery and PTSD .
If you choose to work with me I will strive to create a safe, respectful and meaningful relationship with you. I will listen carefully, with empathy and without judgement. Sometimes I ask a lot of questions in order to understand, to the best of my ability, what things are like for you. In working together to help me understand your story, usually what happens is that things start to make more sense for you too. Confusion often gives way to clarity. Feelings such as anxiety, anger, depression and isolation often subside as well.

I strive to integrate an anti-oppressive and trauma -informed practice through constant education and receiving quality mentorship so I may serve the diverse needs of clients.
Do you have an innate sense that there may be a connection to the past that keeps you stuck or repeating disempowering or even destructive patterns ? Do you recognize that living with chronic stress, depression or anxiety is not the ‘'new normal’ for you anymore. Do you feel overwhelmed or even burdened by the people in your life and often experience disconnection from others and yourself? Have you found that traditional talk therapies have only gotten you so far, and are hitting a roadblock that has left you feeling discouraged?

I work with individuals experiencing post-traumatic stress and related difficulties such as PTSD , complex PTSD , addiction/substance use, self-harm, eating issues, anxiety and depression.
What if I said that there is nothing wrong with you, that it is possible to trust others, to stop doubting yourself, and to break free from the destructive ways of coping that have gotten you to today? I want to help you regain power and control in your life and to release some of the heaviness that you've been carrying. I want you to begin seeing the world as a space in which trust and safety are not foreign. A world in which you don't have to keep numbing, running or hiding from your past, just to get through the day. It's time you began to heal from the things that happened to you.

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.
