You are someone on the move, successful in adapting to challenges, always ready for the next stage, with confidence and a smile! But this time it’s different. The steps are not so sure and the way not so clear. You may feel trapped. Admittedly, being stuck does not feel great — But it can get comfortable — because pressing ahead and making desired change is hard. In fact, the events of life can wear us down and leave us feeling lost, emotionally exhausted, and without joy. You may be struggling with finding yourself, a lack of meaning in your life, difficulty managing relationships, or processing emotions and unresolved trauma .

As a psychologist, I work with change. Change may involve shifts in awareness, attitude, behaviour, goals, acceptance, or coping strategies that will enhance your quality of life and well-being. Many obstacles can prevent us from living a satisfying life. These could be a history of trauma , invalidating relationships, habits that no longer serve us, or environments that may hinder our psychological growth. I can help you identify obstacles to your quality of life, develop strategies to tackle them, and set goals to increase and maintain your well-being.

Are you successful outwardly, but deep down feel a nagging lack of personal fulfilment? Are you swamped with life, and wondering how to achieve more balance, meaning and purpose?

I primarily work with Millennials, Gen Y and Gen Xers who are feeling overwhelmed and dissatisfied with their lives, struggle with low self-esteem and self-worth, or facing difficulty with "adulting."

Neuroscience tells us that trauma quite literally changes our brains; part of us shuts down to survive.
Each of us has a Story worth knowing. Our life stories are full of triumphs and tragedies, and everything in between. Our stories are meant for great care, that is, we are meant to have compassionate witnesses at every moment of our joy, heartache, or shame throughout our lives. The presence of another kindly contending on our behalf changes us. Our own presence kindly contending for our own heart changes us. Kindness changes us.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma , body image issues, low self esteem, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been in the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and effective interventions.

Most commonly, my clients have lived through grief, complex trauma , existential transitions, anxiety/depression, and identity development challenges.
I invite all who're willing to come to the table with an open mind, ready to do the work. You may not have a clear formulation of your specific challenges, needs, and goals (especially if you've never been to therapy before), but you have the urge to make a change and get the sense that now's the time to do it.

I specialize in effectively clearing the ongoing effects of trauma in a short timeframe, using a pain-free, neuroscience-based modality called Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT).
You've been struggling from the effects of a disturbing experience, or wrestling with difficult feelings, thoughts or behaviours. But you don't want to spend ages in therapy! You want real results from the valuable time you are investing, so I use the latest methods to get to the root of the issue and then actually work to clear things up. Whether it's clearing the emotional charge associated with a past event or optimizing how your mind is working, sessions with me are non-judgmental and results-oriented. I am highly motivated to help my clients get unstuck, and experience more peace in their lives

Everyone struggles with certain things at different times in their lives. Mental wellness is a journey, not a destination and we are all at different points along the path. Sometimes, we need help guiding our steps and knowing how best to keep going. My ideal client may be struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma or personality disorders. Generally, they realize that things in their life are just not working and they want to learn new ways of behaving, thinking and relating to themselves and others to make lasting changes. My practice with clients is collaborative and supportive.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
