I strive to create a warm, non-judgmental, and collaborative space, and I use psychological treatments that are proven to be effective, including cognitive-behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, and emotion-focused therapy.
Since 2015, I have supported individuals facing a range of difficulties related to mood (e.g., depression, sadness, grief), anxiety (e.g., generalized anxiety, fears and phobias, stress), childhood and adulthood traumatic events, sleep (e.g., insomnia), and the psychological impacts of health conditions. In addition, as someone who made a significant change in career from working as an actor to training to become a psychologist, I know first-hand how to support individuals dealing with life transitions including changes in career/profession, life stages (e.g., early adulthood), and other important life changes.

It's undeniable that life is hard. It's filled with difficulties that we don't always know how to navigate and that make us feel stuck. But another undeniable truth is that there's help and support along the way, and it's possible to feel unstuck. I view therapy as a journey helping you find healing and solutions to your struggles within yourself. My mission as a therapist is to help you navigate life's challenges and uncertainties with more understanding, acceptance , flexibility, and resilience—whether you're dealing with family, romantic relationships, work or school, friendships, or your relationship with yourself.

I have been seeing clients for the past eight years: long enough to feel comfortable in my body with you; new enough to put additional care and energy into learning about your specific struggle and idiosyncrasies. The bedrock of my therapeutic approach is ACT ( Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), however, I use aspects from other modalities, especially the relational component of Gestalt Therapy. Above all, my approach is gentle and full of warm humour. I am committed to meeting you where you're at. All imperfections and shadows are welcome.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Toronto or for a Toronto ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
