As a Registered Psychotherapist working with adults of all ages, I specialize in the treatment of trauma. Therapy provides an opportunity to discuss how symptoms such as: depression, anxiety, anger, relationship difficulties, addictions, and emotional volatility, can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. Over and over I've witnessed people using therapy to feel safer in the world, more hopeful, and better able to reach their full potential in life, work, and in relationship with themselves and others. I am an experienced, empathic therapist and I collaborate to tailor therapy to meet each client's individual needs.

I am not accepting new clients at this time. Our mental health and well-being depends on the things that happen to us, how we make sense of those events and how we respond to them. If you are looking for an empathetic therapist, who endeavours to work collaboratively with you to find the best possible psychotherapeutic approach, we may be a great fit! I know that achieving, and maintaining, positive mental health takes effort and time, self-knowledge, self-compassion, patience and practice; together with evidence-informed psychotherapeutic interventions. It would be a privilege for me to be a part of your journey :)

Feeling stuck or held back in your life? Feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, numbness, trouble communicating or social-anxiety? So often these experiences affect our relationship to ourselves, our work and others. I specialize in working with self-esteem, PTSD, anxiety, relationship issues and dissociation. I believe that therapy is about creating a safe and open relationship, where together we can work to explore life's challenges and the ways we seek to change our own internal narratives. In this ongoing process of acceptance an awareness, we can find our resilience, authenticity, confidence and a deepening sense of self in the world.

I use a warm and non-judgmental counselling approach that is based in an Emotion-Focused therapeutic orientation (EFT). I have also trained in Accelerated Experiential Psychodynamic Therapy (AEDP), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It is, however, my training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) which most informs my practice and guides my work.

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.

I have observed that the patients I care for struggle with the very things that make us human, namely difficult thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and the inner conflict and distress these create. Ultimately we are all looking to feel at ease in our own skin, fulfilled in our relationships, satisfied with our lives and free to be ourselves. The path forward for many patients includes a deep acceptance, not necessarily agreement, of the barriers interfering with life satisfaction, disempowering them and then generating space for creatively responding to them.

There are times in our lives that we cannot get a handle on the challenges in our life. Sometimes our genetics play a role, i.e. intergenerational traumas, and other times, life, and all its stressors gets overwhelming. For some, systemic barriers exist that impede a capacity for wellness. During these times, it is helpful to work with a trained therapist to support you as you find your way back to your healing, happiness and inner peace. Therapy is a process of growth, unlearning, and self-discovery. In my therapy sessions, I promote behavioral transformation and inner peace by encouraging curiosity, compassion and acceptance.

I believe that most human struggles can be connected to the quest for meaningful intimacy and love. Sometimes, this shows up in mood issues, anxiety, conflict or addictions. At other times, historical trauma may overshadow your ability to feel comfort and happiness. Whether your goal is to improve your relationship with yourself to achieve more positive self-regard or to focus on your connection to others, we can work together to understand the and create the pathway forward.

My passion is helping clients realize their values, discovering a greater sense of possibility that can be used to live with greater clarity and authenticity. I believe that what lies at the root of our struggles is the uncertainty in our sense of self and how we perceive our worth and value. In a non-judgemental space, my role is to meet you where you are and co-create a safe space to help you move from a place of stress, anxiety, and burnout to one with increased self-awareness, self-compassion, and purpose.
