I take a client-centred, empathetic, non-judgemental approach and utilize aspects of Acceptance and Commitment, Narrative, and Cognitive and Mindfulness-based practices.
The fast-paced nature of our society rarely leaves space for us to explore our thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations. Therapy can help you discover new ways to enhance your self-awareness, improve your ability to cope with stress, and express your thoughts and emotions. Therapy can also provide you with the tools to face personal challenges and help you build strategies that encourage positive change. I am passionate about helping people who feel stuck in emotional patterns and who are seeking out a more fulfilled life.

I use various therapeutic approaches such as CBT, ACT , EFT, Psychodynamics, Mindfulness, Relaxation and Grounding techniques.
I work best with those who have ongoing anxiety symptoms, racing thoughts, or symptoms from past trauma. While I have a focus in working with children, teens and young adults, I offer individual, couple, and family counselling. Navigating complex life issues can be challenging, and it’s even harder when it impacts other areas of our lives such as our loved ones and family. Past and on-going trauma can have devastating impact in many different ways. I provide a safe place to process various emotional and mental struggles and work with people to find ways to cope and manage these life stressors.

My counselling style is client-centered and trauma-informed, and draws from a variety of evidence-based modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mindfulness and self compassion-based approaches —all of which are tailored to the clients individual needs.
It takes courage to step into therapy, that’s why it is my central aim to make every client feel safe, heard, and supported. I work to build collaborative relationships with my clients, grounded in respect, openness, authenticity and compassion. I help my clients to set goals, gain greater insight into their emotional challenges, and develop the necessary skills to journey through their lives with more confidence and clarity. During this process, I help my clients draw upon their inner strength and resilience, connect more deeply with their needs, and identify the values they want to live by to build a rich and meaningful life.

I have a strong interest in helping folks find self- acceptance , inner peace, and to gently discover their own authentic interests and needs.
I am a true believer in the human capacity to adapt, grow, and in the fact that it is possible to find genuine joy and happiness. I also know that that life is rife with adversity and that walking alone through challenge can push us to what feels like our limits. It is often in these moments that individuals choose to seek professional counselling supports and I know that this process can feel scary and overwhelming. With that, I would like to commend you on taking the first steps toward beginning your journey.

I use an integrative approach including ACT , Psychodynamic Therapy, and Internal Family Systems to connect with different parts of yourself—the beautiful parts, the parts that hold you back, and the parts you don’t want to face alone.
It’s okay if you don't feel so great. In fact, emotional pain shows us that we care about something. Whether you feel anxious, caught in a cycle, or can't seem to understand what you are feeling, we can work together to untangle what is happening for you. I offer a non-judgemental and engaging space. Meeting your needs through a genuine connection is my top priority.
