Our comprehensive DBT program is committed to providing compassionate & effective treatment for individuals who may experience intense emotions (such as anxiety, depression, anger, shame, guilt), impulsive behaviours (such as self-harm, suicide, stealing, substance use, risky behaviours), & stormy relationships (which could look like switching between pushing people away & clinging to them, challenges with saying no). We also offer trauma treatment through Prolonged Exposure-DBT and/or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) because many of the current day experiences, emotions & views of the world, are based on previous experiences.

I am a current Board Member of CAPT (Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapists). I've come to this professional life as a therapist after years as an English instructor (ESL), server, and professional musician. Many of us these days are feeling depressed and/or anxious about life and how to move forward. I know that it requires courage to trust another with your story, but there is so much to be gained from speaking about it. Together, we can work to discover a deeper sense and better understanding of who you are as a person. When you're ready, I'll be ready as well and we can work to change your life for the better.

I believe that the most worthwhile challenges are those that we encounter within ourselves; ones that we may feel stuck in from time-to-time because they require us to face our greatest fears. Many people seek therapy because they are not sure how to move forward. My goal is to help you find solid ground, and also to discover the sense of freedom, joy, and equanimity that can come with greater self-knowledge and personal growth. I work with adults of all backgrounds on issues related to self-esteem, life transitions, occupational stress and burnout, depression, anxiety and grief.

Do you find yourself asking, "How do I get past this?" The number one struggle people often express when they talk about their emotional pain is feeling stuck. If you are experiencing an inability to move forward in your career, relationship or you are struggling to find the joy in life you once felt, you may be experiencing the effects of unresolved trauma or unmet attachment needs. This can manifest in physical symptoms such as chronic pain, headaches, and fatigue. We take the time to understand you as a person who has a lived experience that has brought you here.

Years ago whilst dealing with some health issues that affected me both mentally and physically a mentor/counsellor told me to “change my thoughts, in order to change my world. Because my present circumstances at the time did not determine were I go, but where I started." Hence, I do understand how mental and physical struggles can impact one's life and that admitting to those struggles and asking for help is never easy. I am here to walk alongside you on the journey to healing and restoration.
