I often work with anxiety, depression and issues with life transitions.
I believe we are all capable of improving our lives but many of us become "stuck" in the process due to self doubt, insecurity, lack of self esteem, past and/or present trauma, losses, etc. My approach is to work together to find the most appropriate solutions for these issues, or find comfort and acceptance with the challenges of life. With broader perspectives, or an alternative life choice, we increase our general well-being. I believe in practical solutions and appropriate perspectives, allowing all of us a better sense of comfort and competency in everyday life.

I offer evidence-based treatment approaches to problems of anxiety, stress, depression, burnout, and codependency.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by stress and anxiety, struggling to navigate life's challenges? Too often we believe that our downfalls define us, rather than guide us and illuminate a path of learning and becoming. We feel alone as we mask our imperfections to morph into a world we believe rewards otherwise. Yet, in our loneliness lives an unspoken unity because we each carry the weight of our mask. I understand the complexity of emotions that arise in difficult times. If you're seeking to understand and manage your emotions, you've got to the right place. I'm here to help.

I help individuals and families understand and transform their relationships; raise their self-compassion and self esteem; and face anxiety and depression with new understanding, tools and hope.
I help people reduce conflict, restore integrity, find ease, confidence and joy in their lives, even when it seems impossible. Through this work, you can harness your own innate ability to face and transform the challenges of living, loving, working and parenting. Together we create a compassionate and courageous space where you are heard and understood within the wider context of your family and environment. Using the neuroscience of emotion, this work addresses problems at the root, rather than focusing on behaviours or symptoms.

When we’re facing a major life crisis or wanting to unpack the trauma of our childhood, anxiety and depression often get in the way and create a form of paralysis. In such painful situations how change can occur is extremely difficult to imagine. Psychotherapy is an organic process to help us change; seek our authentic self, develop our relationships with others, and to discover how to regulate our nervous system. We can relearn how to play i.e., by uncovering our (temporarily) lost sense of joy. We can reframe and update the self so as to create tools helping us navigate life’s beauty and paradoxes!

I am a trauma-informed therapist who specializes in self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, loneliness, depression, relationships, dissociation, anger and grief/loss. Change happens when we expand our self-awareness by understanding ourselves. But to understand ourselves, we first need to be understood. That’s why the therapeutic relationship—built on trust, honesty, empathy and vulnerability—lies at the heart of personal change.
