Research in mindfulness and psychotherapy is indicating that partnership of these two modalities can accelerate our ability to function more in the present moment; being more responsive and less reactive in our relationships.
I am passionate about helping people find their authentic selves, to live fuller, more fulfilling and flourishing lives. Fostered by and continually growing through my own introspective explorations, the integration of a mindfulness component has proven to me to be very beneficial. Carl Jung said that an effective therapy was difficult to facilitate unless the therapist, as well as the client, was willing and able to change. Without this mutual transformation, all remain calcified.

Together, we will create a safe, comfortable space through mindfulness , compassion, emotion focused techniques.
Living through your emotional ups and downs is difficult. Navigating and exploring these experiences has become an intimidating venture. It has become frightening to endure alone and it has left you feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Being in the thick of pain and suffering leads you to feeling isolated and hopeless, as you ask yourself “What is wrong with me? Is this normal?” You have tried everything you can think of to try to get rid of this experience, and nothing seems to work. You start to judge and criticize yourself while wishing for relief.

In a session, I may also incorporate mindfulness , narrative therapy, and CBT.
My passion is to engage with clients who are struggling with mental health issues and for which traditional talk therapy may not be the most helpful modality. As a certified professional art therapist, I seek to help my client find meaning, purpose, and ultimately their inner voice through the creative process. A client may come into art therapy seeking relief from a variety of issues but later find that they can oftentimes find wisdom from within. Art therapy can jog such a process where words sometimes fail. The goal of my practice is to cultivate and nurture this inner voice, and so help my client to develop greater confidence.

I completed the Masters of Counselling Psychology program at Yorkville University, have been working as an educator for almost 10 years, and I have been an advocate for the importance of self-care, self-compassion, mindfulness , and mental health for many years.
Life is full of unexpected highs and lows and we all need to feel supported, encouraged, and cared for, whether it be during times of hardships or on a regular basis. My intention is to create a safe and non-judgemental space to help you share your story, understand your needs, grieve your losses, and celebrate your accomplishments. Life can feel complicated and busy, so we don’t always make time to acknowledge and care for our mental health. Together we can work to explore situations and find patterns in your life that may be standing in your way of moving towards your goals and figure out new ways to approach old challenges.

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.
