Do you feel stuck? Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed? Do you feel anxious or depressed? Are you feeling lonely or isolated? You are not alone! Talk therapy can help you cope. We all have a need to share what we are going through in a place we feel safe, with someone who will respect and validate our experiences. This is where meaningful personal growth is rooted and it is the space I strive to create with you. In our work together, we can explore whatever issues are coming up for you and what might be holding you back. We can work toward helping you gain new insights and increasing your sense of satisfaction in life.

As a primarily AEDP -oriented psychotherapist my approach is supportive, warm and encouraging.
We are all wired for growth and healing, and have a deep desire to be seen and known. Sometimes, what we encounter in life overwhelms us and we are unable to flourish, or even cope. Through the experience of feeling safe and supported, crisis and suffering provide opportunities to awaken extraordinary capacities within us that may otherwise remain inaccessible. Together we can address a variety of difficulties that may contribute to your sense of feeling overwhelmed, stuck and unable to move forward in life. Whatever challenges bring you here, I commit to supporting your inherent capacity to heal and to thrive.

My gentle approach draws from AEDP , a therapy that uses attachment theory and the brain’s capacity to change in order to strengthen your sense of when things feel “right”.
Feeling secure within ourselves can feel amazing, but it’s not a given for everyone. Perhaps you find it difficult to trust others, or connecting in a meaningful, consistent way. You might be easily anxious, often uncertain and ruminating, frequently wondering how you’re being perceived. Or you find yourself distant, closed off, but wanting more. As a registered social worker for the past seven years, I have collaborated with young professionals as they navigate identity, mental wellbeing, work life, and relationships, so they can thrive with greater assurance, confidence and authenticity.

I offer varied and personalized treatment approaches including Client-centred Emotionally Focused Individual and Couples Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR (trauma de-sensitization and re-processing), AEDP and Focusing (enhancing your inner relationship).
Sometimes in life, we need a mentor, advocate or a careful, accepting and non-judgmental, yet skilled, listener for our thought and emotion processes. My intention as a therapist is to be there for you with a compassionate presence, contributing my expertise to help you access your needs, self-understanding and inner wisdom. Where unconscious behaviours and unsuccessful life patterns impede access to fulfillment and happiness in life, I offer skills development for self-care, self-discovery and self-mastery. I welcome clients who experience emotional distress due to trauma, loss, anxiety, panic, low self-esteem, depression and relationship problems, providing skilled guidance and support.

 My home base, however, is AEDP (aedpinstitute.
We all have natural capacities to right ourselves when things go wrong, but we usually don’t feel that way when we’re looking for therapy. Instead, we often feel stuck and alone, overwhelmed by our feelings and unsatisfied in our relationships. I work with people who want to get unstuck and connect to their innate capacities for growth and change. My main goal is to help you have a positive and true experience of yourself and deeper connections with others.

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy , Existential-Humanistic approach, attachment-based and mindfulness-based therapies, as well as psychotraumatology inform my understanding and ability to address experiences of relational wounds, emotional “burnout”, grief and loss, uncertainty, despair, broken heart, loneliness as well as fear and restlessness.
There are moments in our lives when we are looking for a change, figuring out the next step, getting stuck and feeling that we can’t live our life fully. There are, also, moments of deep emotional pain, disappointments, struggles that come from our encounter with isolation, change, meaning, separation/attachment, death. Not always we can see clearly how to tackle life challenges and we want to have someone to check with, be heard, get ideas for the new directions. Learning to face the inevitable problems, difficulties, upsets, and crises of existence with confidence is what therapy is all about.

I employ an Integrated approach, drawing from various schools of therapy, though focusing on mindfulness, somatic (employing the whole, mind-body system), polyvagal, IFS and AEDP as theoretical foundations.
I regularly work with helping Clients process trauma, relationship issues, anxiety, panic attacks, uncontrolled anger, life changes and internal judgement/criticism. The Clients who report the biggest impact tend to be ones who are ready to take responsibility for their own journey. We can spend an hour together, and accomplish a lot in that time- but ultimately, the ones who experience the most change and improvement, are people who are committed to the process of their own work.

Do you wish things were different? I work with diverse clients facing life's transitions and challenges. My theoretical framework is relational, using both talk therapy and/or creative/expressive arts modalities. Following your lead, I listen/witness and attune carefully in order to attend to your specific need. We start with where you are most comfortable, which means that talking, imagery, dreamwork and silence are all welcome. Although I work flexibly between short term talk therapy (psychodynamic psychotherapy) and expressive/creative arts, we safely build our relationship, while co-creating in our therapeutic studio space.

You’re a giver, and you put in 1000% to care for everyone around you. On the surface, everyone seems to love you, and you seem to have it all. But underneath all that, you feel a sense of loneliness. If only they knew...after another day of work, feeling exhausted, with still another 20 items on your to-do list. Weekends, running errands for your parents, supporting your friends, volunteering for your community...tasks and responsibilities upon tasks and responsibilities. And you wonder to yourself, is this the rest of your life? Among a sea of friends, family, and acquaintances, why do you feel so alone?

Every single person will need compassionate support, personalized guidance and wisdom, at some point in their lives. If you have a history of trauma, a painful childhood, or have suffered from anxiety/depression for a long time, then this is even more true of you. Emotions and thoughts can be confusing and even hurtful to yourself and others. Some mental states are so complex, that seem to be layer upon layer of suffering. Life can be a rollercoaster and healthy stable relationships appear to be too much work! Imagine not to be defined by your history or struggles. Imagine being able to tap into joy and inner strength at any time!
