I draw upon psychodynamic theory, trauma-informed practices, attachment theory and solution-focussed therapy to form a personalized approach.
I believe that the most worthwhile challenges are those that we encounter within ourselves; ones that we may feel stuck in from time-to-time because they require us to face our greatest fears. Many people seek therapy because they are not sure how to move forward. My goal is to help you find solid ground, and also to discover the sense of freedom, joy, and equanimity that can come with greater self-knowledge and personal growth. I work with adults of all backgrounds on issues related to self-esteem, life transitions, occupational stress and burnout, depression, anxiety and grief.

As an existential integrative psychodynamic psychotherapist, my approach includes unconditional positive regard, interpersonal client-centred emphases; therapeutic-client process; personal value systems; exploration and solution focused approach.
At first glance, the problem can seem too complicated, facing our most distressing emotions and thoughts, and more than we can handle. Life can seem overwhelming, yet when we are able to step back and focus, we often are able to see, the problem does have an solution and a direction. Psychotherapy increases the capacity for self awareness, explores how we are willing to life our lives, defines our strengths; and investigates our responsibility for change.

I tailor therapy to best meet your needs by using evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioural therapies, modern psychodynamic approaches, trauma-informed, and mindfulness-based practices.
Taking the first step to begin therapy can be difficult. I'm here to provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore the factors that have shaped your present circumstance. By deepening your understanding with self-compassion, we can help you connect to your inner strengths and wisdom, and empower you to change habits of thinking and behaving that are no longer serving you. Whether you are struggling with low mood, negative thinking, difficulties managing stress or anxiety, feeling unsatisfied in your relationships or work, or feeling generally unfulfilled or stuck in your life, therapy can help.

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.

Beyond labels, I am curious about how you relate to the world, what's important to you, and how you want to live. I believe there is wisdom to be found in our suffering. My approach is supportive and challenging, empathic and direct.

The frameworks I operate from include but are not limited to Psychodynamic , Relational, and Attachment Theory Based.
You don't need to suffer, and you deserve to feel better. Anxious, overwhelmed or sad? Therapy can help. I specialize in working with people who have anxiety, depression, and perfectionism. I would characterize my therapy style as being warm, empathetic, direct, and validating. 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.
