I ground my practice in social constructivism, and I draw from a diverse range of interventions, from CBT and psychodynamic orientations.
I have worked with individuals from all walks of life who have endured various challenges and have had different expectations out of therapy. I have worked with people who needed some short-term support, long-term support and everything in between. When working with clients who have never been to therapy before, one of my goals in our work is to explore their understandings of therapy and therapists. Regardless of how long we work together, I feel it is important for me to impart on all clients their level of comfort with their therapist should always be a priority.

I integrate Cognitive and Dialectical Behaviour therapy as well at Emotion Focused and Psychodynamic theory in my practice.
You've been feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, experienced trauma and you've learned to cope by pushing down your feelings and living in survival mode. You're likely tired of trying to keep everything together and worry how much longer you can keep it all afloat. You may feel frustrated, overwhelmed and sick of being afraid or hyper-vigilant to the potential threats around you. You hate how all of this is impacting your relationships and need things to change. You are seeking therapy to find someone who will understand and provide help. You are in the right place and I look forward to supporting you with tools so you can thrive.

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, integrating mindfulness/somatic therapy for trauma and existential therapies. You may be suffering from distressing emotions, anxiety, depression, high levels of shame, fatigue, or other symptoms that have left you feeling disconnected from yourself and others. Many of those I work with also have histories of trauma or grew up in invalidating environments where they were not heard. In therapy, it is often the relationship that heals. I'm here to listen and help you move towards feeling more grounded, creative, and engaged in life.

I integrate various forms of psychotherapy, including psychodynamic , cognitive, somatic & attachment oriented.
We all have natural capacities to right ourselves when things go wrong, but we usually don’t feel that way when we’re looking for therapy. Instead, we often feel stuck and alone, overwhelmed by our feelings and unsatisfied in our relationships. I work with people who want to get unstuck and connect to their innate capacities for growth and change. My main goal is to help you have a positive and true experience of yourself and deeper connections with others.

Are you finding it hard to connect with yourself and others? Have you been feeling down, disinterested, withdrawn or anxious? Perhaps recent experiences have left you feeling crippled with self-doubt. Or maybe the best way to describe it is simply that you’re feeling stuck? I would like to help. Together we will identify persisting patterns of relating to the self and your environment that leave you feeling this way. We will chart a course to self-awareness and acceptance through alternative paths and choices. Using a psychodynamic approach, I create a safe space for us to explore difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

We will draw from effective therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural (CBT), emotion- focused, psychodynamic , interpersonal, mindfulness-based therapies, and approaches from eastern philosophies.
Do you feel overwhelmed and can't see a way forward? Are you experiencing emotional pain or struggling in your relationship? In therapy, you will get support and build coping skills for managing anxiety and depression, recovering from traumatic experiences including PTSD, and healing your marriage and interpersonal relationships. Together on your therapeutic journey we will clarify your questions and concerns related to identity, meaning and purpose, sexuality, substance dependence and addiction, anger and impulse control, and overcoming abuse. Difficult experiences in your past don't have to determine your future.
