Providing a balance of support and challenge, my approach to healing is holistic and comprehensive. I believe that each individual has all of the inner resources they need to achieve a sense of balance and equanimity. My role is merely to provide a safe, non-judgmental container in which they can reach their own integration - cognitively, emotionally and somatically. I aim to assist the individual's journey-making process through offering new ways at looking through the lens which often gets obscured by many mitigating factors. Clarity is the goal.

Are you a mom of a baby or toddler and feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of parenthood? Are you feeling frustrated with one of your children and unsure where to take this thought for fear of being judged? Are you desperately trying to break cycles of abuse and having trouble understanding your triggers? Or maybe none of this applies, but you are a mom wanting support . Either way, I would love to chat.

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!

Congratulations for finding the strength to start the process of healing and transformation. Are you seeking a kind guide and compassionate support to find your way through some difficult or challenging territory? Or perhaps you are carrying something that you need to set down? Sometimes emotions can be profoundly powerful and maybe you would like to feel a sense of mastery over your system again. Maybe you know something is just not right but it is hard to define in a way that releases it.

Change is difficult and it is hard to take the first step in seeking out therapy support. I know it takes courage to start the process. Most people I see want to feel better about themselves, less anxious, happier, more content. They often want some help for their kids or teens or for the family as a whole. When you start therapy with me, we focus on what you would like to be different in your life, what a small step towards your hopes would look like. We connect to that hope, because hope is what keeps us going. We also work to connect to your inner resiliency, your ability to bounce back.

Sometimes you just need to talk with someone who gets it. I am a strong communicator who is professional and calm under pressure and I provide empathetic, welcoming, evidence-based engagement and support for clients seeking online therapy in Toronto. I have worked across adult healthcare and mental health settings with a focus on psychotherapy. I approach my work with clients in a way that is client-centred, highly ethical, harm reduction oriented and attachment/trauma-informed. I am continually seeking to be intersectional, feminist, anti-oppressive and anti-racist in my practice, and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

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.

Any of us may become scared or frustrated by events in our lives. Sometimes parts of our lives just don't seem to be working out. We may become unhappy and come to an impasse. It is inevitable that we come face to face with a crisis of illness or loss. Some may have experienced a relationship breakdown or disturbing dreams and memories. Any one of these can make life seem overwhelming. Even when we find the courage to admit what's happening, those closest to us are not equipped to help us. At these times it is often helpful to talk with a therapist

Therapy is a powerful process that can open you up in ways that are familiar and unexpected. It can be both scarry and beautiful. But what is most important is that you trust and feel safe with the person you are opening up to. As a Gestalt trained humanist psychotherapist with over 20 years of varied therapeutic experience I make the cultivation of that relationship and your trust the foundation of our work. Once this co-created safe space is established, no matter what shows up in sessions – fear, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, trauma, depression, family issues, alienation, substance use, feelings of inadequacy -

I’m here to help you overcome anxiety, to feel empowered, to flourish in your relationships and to facilitate the healing and change you desire in a safe, confidential, creative and compassionate setting. 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.
