I view therapy as a creative process. A creative process requires connection, trust, and a sense of humour. I bring over a decade of experience in the arts to my work as a psychotherapist. I have spent my life working in supportive spaces where we try things, fail productively, and sometimes have collaborative breakthroughs. Together we will investigate the nuances of your story and explore alternate ways of being with your thoughts and feelings, mind and body. A sliding scale rate is available to those in need of financial relief in order to access therapy.

Investing in understanding yourself — what makes you unique, what makes you strong, and how you may hold yourself back — is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Self-awareness is like a super-power — it doesn’t solve all life’s problems, but it gives you ways of navigating challenges that make you more likely land well. Whether you are looking for quick tools to help shift your mood, or longer-term support for charting a course through a major life transition, or puzzling through challenges with end-of-life, grief, family, relationships or work, I feel privileged to support your success and be and a part of your story.

You may be feeling stuck in old patterns of behaviour, or ways of thinking or feeling about yourself and your relationships with others. This may leave you feeling unfulfilled, self critical or emotionally overwhelmed. When feeling this way, it can be helpful to reach out for support, to explore and unpack the struggles that you are experiencing personally and/or in your relationships. My role as a therapist is to be your guide in gaining insight into how these challenges came to be and to support you in understanding yourself with greater compassion, so that you are able to make positive changes for your present and future.

The decision to start a family is fraught with myths, expectations, and ideals. In reality, parenthood is different for everyone, and filled with ups and downs of enormous magnitude. When we try to fit parenthood into a perfect box, we leave little space for people to create their own story. If you are planning a family, expecting a child, have recently had an infant join your family, are struggling with parenting your young children, and/or are feeling disconnected from yourself and your loved ones, therapy can be helpful for you!

Supporting you through life transitions, coming to terms with previous traumas (including sexual assault), concerns related to gender and sexuality, struggling with anxiety, depression, meaning, relationship challenges, and complex grief (including childhood loss). The process is truly collaborative; we work together to consider your current patterns and explore how they may be connected to various times or parts of your life. In gaining an understanding of how you experience things and your characteristic ways of engaging with the world, treatment is tailored to work best for you and the results you'd like to see in therapy.

Maybe you are looking to get some relief from anxiety, grief, depression, or to heal trauma. Or maybe you are looking to build confidence, strengthen relationships, or explore ways to communicate. I am here to support and provide a kind, compassionate space to explore, find clarity, steady footing and to grow and thrive. I believe that each individual already has the wisdom and knowledge needed for their own well-being and healing. My role as a therapist is to act as a guide along this journey and provide the tools to work with and help one get in touch with the inherently healing force within each individual.

The backbone of my practice is Gestalt Psychotherapy. In my work, I am committed to honoring my clients with compassion, presence and integrity. My sessions often include mindfulness-based approaches, encouraging the use of awareness as a powerful and curative ally. When we become aware of our patterns and limiting beliefs we can then willingly, courageously choose differently and embrace another way of being. My hope is that I may be of service and provide guidance as this process ushers you to a place of healing and transformation.

I support individuals with challenges related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma and abuse, substance use, relationship issues, connection and belonging, loss and grief, and stressful life changes. Through providing warm, experiential and compassionate support I aim to create a space that feels accepting, empowering and has lots of room for exploration. I emphasize a holistic approach and the importance of exploring the mind body connection in healing. All of my work is trauma informed and rooted in anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. My practice welcomes individuals of diverse gender identities, sexualities, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, ages, abilities, and lifestyles.

Do you struggle with being imperfectly human in societal structures calling for your perfection to belong? Is guilt/shame messaging from cultural norms about your gender, race, sexual orientation, etc. holding you back from achieving your full potential? Do you feel overwhelmed by the uncertainties of navigating life through social/racial injustice, climate crisis, or an ongoing pandemic? Are you trying to embrace who you truly are as you graduate into adulthood, steer through relationship breakups, or transition into a new stage in life? If YES to any of these, I'd like to support you to grow into your wholehearted authentic life.

Is your relationship stuck in a rut? Does it feel like you fall into the same cycle of conflict again and again? We all desire love, acceptance, and appreciation from our partners, and when we’re not able to get this, it can bring up our most deeply rooted fears. What if he leaves me? What if I don’t measure up to her expectations? What if I’m unlovable? Your partner is so important to you and you can’t imagine your life without them – you just wish you could be on the same page and feel like allies rather than enemies. You have taken a wonderful and brave step to find a therapist, and have made your way to my page. Welcome!

Do you value and seek deep experience? Are you reflective and self-aware but find it hard to articulate yourself accurately to others? Do you think through what you say and do, but that skill sometimes immobilizes you? I know these experiences because I've lived them. Being an introvert can be wonderful and rewarding, but it can also cause difficulty being understood and relating to the world because of the extroverted bias in society (and within ourselves). I get it and I will try my best to get you.

What if you could talk to your partner without it becoming an escalated argument every single time? How would you feel to have just one day, without feeling stressed, sad or anxious?

How you feel to live without guilt? Good, right? I can help you with that. I give clients the space to talk about their feelings and thoughts to help them manage their emotions effectively and live fuller lives.

True healing is the return of body, mind, and emotion to balance. It is the spiritual restoration of wholeness to all parts of the Being. Recovery is a personal journey of self-discovery and regaining control of your path to wellness. This journey will involve learning from challenges and developing self-awareness about strengths and passions in order to develop meaningful goals related to your purposeful life.

I believe that our relationships can be sites of powerful healing. As a therapist it is an honour to work alongside couples, families and individuals as their relationships - to one another, to others, to themselves - transform. It is through this transformation that we come to better understand ourselves and create new ways of being that are more compassionate, empathetic and generative.

We all struggle in invisible ways as our lives become inhibited by pressures and expectations of the day to day. We are often further debilitated by our less than perfect past, where old hurts and abandon influence our current choices. Most impacted are our relationships, our work, and our connection to the self. I believe therapy gives us the opportunity to both accept what was and is, and through growth orienting processes help us recreate ourselves into versions that feel more aligned with who we would like to become.
