I help clients connect with their present-moment experience through mindfulness -based approaches.
Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

I also utilize strategies and components of Cognitive Behavioural and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, as well as Mindfulness based approaches.
I am a registered Psychotherapist with a MA in Psychology from McGill University. All of my services are directly supervised by a registered Psychologist who is an ongoing source of clinical guidance and feedback in my work. Research in the area of 'common factors' emphasizes the client-therapist relationship and factors that are unique to you and your life circumstances as important predictors for therapy success, and it informs my approach to support you in creating positive change. I meet clients non-judgmentally, and my approach is uniquely dynamic, collaborative, and solution-focused, with therapeutic presence and authenticity.

Undisturb yourself! Using CBT, Existential, and Mindfulness forms of psychotherapy, I help clients (in-person/ telephone/ on-line) develop the tools in order that they think, act and feel better. Sometimes the realities of life understandably leave us susceptible to certain anxieties, despair and general existential concern. All too often we find ourselves developing unhelpful irrational thoughts and behaviours that can seem impossible to change. But they aren't. If you are interested in investigating and changing your assumptions and behaviours, if you want to modify the lens through which you view and experience the world, my therapeutic modality could be well suited to you.

I utilize a variety of evidence based modalities (DBT, CBT, EFT, attachment and systems) and integrate mindfulness , psycho-education and creative outlets.
When faced with a challenge or uncertainty, it can take a toll on your well-being, productivity, and self-worth. It can be difficult to talk to your friends, family, or romantic partner about how you are feeling, and finding a safe space can be the first step to feeling like yourself again. I am a registered social worker with over 9 years of experience working in mental health. I am a non-judgmental empath who strives to support and always meet my clients where they are at. I take a client-centered, trauma-focused, anti-oppressive approach, and work to collaboratively create a plan with my clients to help them achieve their goals.

I use an integrative approach with clients, with a basis in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy or 'parts work', a trauma-informed, mindfulness based modality, and I draw from somatic and behavioural interventions to invite change and acceptance in your life.
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 work from a mindfulness informed perspective rooted in my own history of practicing and teaching yoga and meditation for over 15 years.
If you work with me, you will find that I am warm, receptive, and engaging. I will offer practical tools and new ways of thinking that you can use right away to cope with the present and make plans for the future. In therapy with me you will increase your ability to feel and regulate your emotions and learn to recognize and disengage from harmful ways of thinking and acting that may be getting in the way of you feeling agency, choice, and engagement in your life.

I use a holistic approach to help individuals, couples and families reach their goals and create rich and meaningful lives. I believe that in addition to insight, emotional relief, and support, therapy should provide people with concrete, evidence-based tools which I provide in a compassionate and non-judgmental environment. After receiving a Masters of Social Work from Wurzweiller School of Social Work in New York City, earning the award for 'Best Overall Clinician', I trained at the National Institute of Psychotherapies and The American Institute for Cognitive Therapy.

I draw on multiple modalities, including elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mindfulness -based therapy, solutions focused therapy and anti-oppressive practice.
Becoming a new parent is one of the hardest life transitions. It is a journey that no one should have to undertake alone. Through one-to-one psychotherapy, I support people throughout their perinatal mental health journey including pregnancy planning, infertility, grief, processing labour and delivery, and post-partum transitions.

Mindfulness teaches us how to relate to ourselves with kindness. I understand how the struggle to avoid or control difficult experiences can leave you feeling like your own worst enemy. Mindfulness is a different strategy. It's about learning to feel at home in our own bodies and our minds - even in times of trouble. My work is grounded in my own personal practice: a 20 year meditator with 14 years as a mindfulness educator, I'm a graduate of a Buddhist seminary with a master's degree in Counselling psychology and specialized training in working with trauma and abuse.

I have an integrated approach that is informed by Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness , Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Anti-Oppressive Practice.
As a therapist, I have the privilege of meeting people at a critical point in their lives when they are looking to understand themselves better, make changes and deal with painful feelings. I think it is so important for people to have someone non-judgmental to talk to about what is going on in their lives. I look forward to the possibility of meeting and helping you with a challenging period of your life with some humour, humility and almost 20 years of experience as a social worker.

My approach to therapy is relational, co-creative, and integrative, drawing from narrative, somatic, and trauma-informed approaches, mindfulness , attachment, internal family systems, emotionally focused therapy, and enneagram work.
It’s been said that showing up for ourselves is the hardest, most important work we’ll ever do. Whether you find yourself grieving a significant loss, processing a difficult life change, or simply wanting to explore a different way of relating to yourself and the people around you, I know that it takes courage to be here. I see therapy as a sort of pilgrimage to our authentic, whole selves, sometimes in the face of darkness and grief. Journeying through what feels difficult in our lives is part of bringing our fullest and best into the world, and I would be honoured to accompany you in this journey.

I am trained in a variety of evidence based therapeutic approaches (CBT, DBT, CPT, EMDR, Attachment, mindfulness techniques, trauma therapy) and use them tailored to the client's needs.
Through life we can encounter uncertainty, loss and confusion on our path towards inner growth. Having to chose a therapist should not be one of such barriers. In my work I offer a safe environment and supportive collaborative work for clients to explore and remove life barriers. I also effectively use evidence based therapeutic approaches in helping people manage and heal from overwhelming emotions, trauma, anxiety, depression, shame, abuse, low self esteem, relationship problems, and other issues. My work is collaborative non judgmental, compassionate, respectful, thoroughly confidential and preserves dignity of people.

I use various models including emotion-focused therapy, mindfulness , acceptance and commitment therapy, and internal-family systems ("parts work"), drawing from theories of attachment, trauma and neurobiology.
Are you feeling stuck, alone, overwhelmed, lost or yearning for more meaning in life? I believe therapy offers a unique opportunity for inner exploration to gain insight into your thoughts, emotions, relationship dynamics, past experiences and cultural contexts that have impacted your current struggles. Through our work together I will support you in developing more balanced perspectives, relating to yourself with more compassion, learning flexible ways of coping, building connection, and empowerment to move towards the life you desire.

I find that Mindfulness -based techniques are helpful for addressing emotional pain, challenging emotions, anxiety, grief, depression, stress, burnout, trauma, feelings of confusion or anger.
My therapeutic approach is grounded in the belief that challenging circumstances provide an opportunity for discovery, growth, and change. If you have experienced a challenging past or are currently experiencing challenging circumstances it may be difficult to identify opportunities for change. You don't have to navigate this alone. Psychotherapy offers a space to discover possibilities and make sense of things. Equipped with evidenced-based specialized techniques that can help us gain insight into your experiences, I will work compassionately, collaboratively and creatively with you to define and reach your goals.
