Depending on what is needed, I tend to work with person-centred, emotion-focused, mindfulness/compassion-based, internal family systems, and attachment-based approaches to therapy.
Therapy is not about eliminating all problems or "fixing" yourself, but is simply a way of stepping back from your life in order to examine it more deeply. My approach encourages change that emerges from understanding - rather than fighting with- yourself. This is the foundation on which you can increase your ability to manage difficult emotions and thoughts, improve your connection with others, work through past experiences, or make important life choices. I am grounded in trauma-informed, harm-reduction, and social justice frameworks, and have worked extensively with trauma and substance use in a community mental health setting.

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.

I bring a trauma-informed, attachment-based approach to my work.
Hi! I'm glad you're here. In my work as a Registered Psychotherapist, I aim to understand what’s happening that has brought you to therapy, what you’re looking to get out of therapy, and patterns that might be holding you back. Together we’ll dig deep to explore underlying thoughts, feelings and behaviours to better learn what’s going on. Wherever you’re at, I provide a dedicated, safe space to be yourself, to dig deep, and to find pathways to move forward with a greater sense of authenticity, ease and understanding.

I work with individuals and families experiencing depression, anxiety, disconnection, conflict, and loneliness. In individual therapy, I focus on the deep and often painful emotions that get in the way of feeling accepted, understood and truly engaged in one’s life and relationships, including exploring low self-esteem, self-criticism, and perfectionism. Family work focuses on helping caregivers and their loved ones to explore the difficulties in their relationship, guiding them toward a more open and supportive relationship. I also work individually with parents looking for support with their parenting approach.

I take a holistic and integrative lens with an understanding of impacts of intergenerational and relational trauma, family systems, and attachment-based issues on present day functioning.
Are you feeling stuck, tired or hopeless in areas of self-esteem, relationships or life-goals? Have you tried everything to achieve a sense of happiness or wholeness and feel that you're falling short? Often our discomfort with life and our bodies is telling us something. Telling us that there is pain locked away somewhere that we're afraid to look. As a counsellor my job is to shine a compassionate light in the areas of life that are causing you pain and help you navigate your own way out through kindness, curiosity and introspection.

My approach is mindfulness based emotion-focused therapy and I draw from various therapy modalities, including solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, attachment-based and narrative therapy.
Feeling overwhelmed with stress or anxiety? Relationships not going well? Are you finding yourself in the same cycles and behaviour patterns that are not helpful or effective and maybe even destructive? Psychotherapy can help. I have a passion for psychotherapy, especially the way skillful conversations can be transformative and enhance relationships. Psychotherapy helps you gain insight to what's working well and what isn't, so that positive change can happen. Self awareness and mindfulness can lead to more effective and meaningful relationships and enhance overall health and well-being.

Modalities include the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, EMDR, emotion-focused therapies (adult and families), Gordon Neufeld's attachment-based developmental approaches, and emotion coaching.
Nothing ever really prepares us as parents for the times when things don't go as we had hoped for with our child - particularly in regard to developmental, behavioural, or mental health issues that we are faced with. I'm here to help shoulder some of the weight you've been carrying, and provide a bridge for you in helping your child to reach their full potential. Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. Please note that I am currently focusing on children who are 0 to 5 years of age, as well as working through my waitlist.

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.

Many of us feel stuck in familiar patterns that no longer serve us. Patterns that are barriers to healthy relationships, meaningful work and good feelings about ourselves. I will work alongside you to help make sense of how past experiences may influence these present day struggles. Together we can work to heal self-criticism; "over-reaction" or "overthinking" type responses; feeling "too much" or feeling numb; repeated tendencies that feel like self-sabotage; hard emotions linked to life transitions; and painful memories from past experience.
