I'm a relational psychotherapist and trauma specialist, supporting individuals and couples+ to cultivate safety and aliveness. We’re wired to seek them both - a sense of ease, security, and belonging - as well as adventure, freedom, and play. It’s no wonder we get stuck sometimes, when these needs are enticingly paradoxical. Whether working individually or as a couple+, enriching our intimacy and independence often involves tending to the influence of the past. I will be your co-conspirator as you unravel the habitual ways of being and relating that protected your heart in the times that were the most painful, lonely, and violent.

Good psychotherapy alleviates emotional pain, awakens the mind, enlivens the body, and opens the heart to love and creativity. Couples and families will find a safe environment for an open dialogue in my office. My goal is to help you effectively express your needs, resolve differences, and strengthen your bond. I am focused, analytical, and deeply accepting. I have witnessed numerous clients understand and embrace their traumatized parts, and bravely proceed with building happier lives.

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.

Through my experience working with hundreds of clients I’ve come to believe that everyone is truly doing the best they can with the inner and outer resources they have available in the moment. I work with you to develop a deeper acceptance of yourself by exploring who you are as a whole person, from processing difficult experiences to bolstering your strengths and healthy boundaries. If you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or low and unmotivated, we can work together to help life feel more manageable and meaningful.

Making sense of your behaviours and experiences can help you become a better version of yourself. Life and the relationships we form have a way of launching feelings and experiences our way that we're not always prepared to handle. Guilt that haunts our past, buried beliefs that enhance anxieties or despair that paralyzes us from moving forward can create negative behaviours, feelings, and thoughts. The way you live and approach your life can be shifted into a more positive direction to allow you to increase your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-awareness. Be a better version of yourself.

It’s not always easy being human, is it? I find that the greatest gift of therapy, when there is a strong air of compassion, presence and curiosity in the therapeutic alliance, is the ability to reclaim our needs, our full range of feelings, our joy and our aliveness. While building skills of mindfulness, self-compassion, and embodied awareness, I believe there is immense possibility that lies in our unfolding wholeness, waiting to be discovered - creative choice made more accessible, when we're less held back by our fears, our core beliefs, and pain that we've had to organize around to survive.

Every individual I have the opportunity to meet carriers with them a collection of unique experiences, thoughts, beliefs, values and goals. As humans, we all have periods in our lives when we think, “things are not how they should or ought to be” and this may lead us to a place where we may not be feeling like ourselves. I genuinely believe that you, as a client, are the expert at your own life, but sometimes, even experts can use a little fine tuning- this is one of the functions of therapy! I promise to provide you with the highest quality service that it tailored to your specific needs.

My practice is rooted in the desire to understand the human experience and forge meaningful connections with individuals on their unique paths to healing and self-discovery. Within the therapeutic dynamic, I bring authenticity, compassion, curiosity, and humour, fostering an environment that is safe and non-judgmental. I am not a passive observer and instead believe in collaboration, open communication, and constructive challenge. Both as a client and a clinician, I recognize the importance of embracing discomfort as a catalyst for long-term growth and meaningful change.

My belief is that people come to therapy to have an experience that is markedly different from what they encounter in their daily life. My training and experience allow me to have the tools to provide an opportunity for that different experience, whether it is getting relief from anxiety, finding grace and gratitude in the midst of grief, or gaining clarity and calm in a situation of overwhelm and confusion. We work collaboratively and creatively to uncover the root causes of your distress or dissatisfaction, and address them without re-traumatization. Our work together is safe, deep, transformative, and often spontaneously joyous.

Do you want to grow in life? I believe that wisdom and creativity emerge through openness, curiosity, and reflection on your authentic experience. Usually when we experience difficulty in life, we do our best to adapt. We might push away our pain or attempt to mentally escape our situation. This may help in the short term, but our deeper unresolved issues often resurface in confusing or distressing experiences. We can find ourselves in patterns of feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or confused. These patterns are not just random occurrences but meaningful signals that something needs more attention.

I am not your expert - you are.  I am willing to co-create with you an atmosphere in which meaningful conversations can take place with a hope that we explore at least three things together: We can recapture some of your skills of living and knowledges of life and try to apply them to your present life circumstances. Part of the process is pure creation. I don’t not know what we may end up talking about. We have never met before. The very fact gives a chance to create ideas neither of us would be able to come up with on our own. Also I am willing to share with you my ideas coming from my both professional and personal experiences.
