I have a special interest in working with individuals, teens and young adults who present with diverse issues, including trauma, divorce, parenting issues, family life cycle transitions, grief, stress, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and codependence.
We all have a unique journey that adds value to who we are and how we can contribute every day. My personal journey took me down some challenging paths that required me to find new hope and build from the ground up. I feel that the hardships, challenges and triumphs I have endured can inspire and bring hope to others. I believe that through the toughest times of our lives, there is always a silver lining.

Greetings! I consider it both an honour and a privilege to be held in a position of trust and to listen and respond to my clients’ unique, rich life stories. Since 2014, I have accumulated extensive clinical experience using cognitive-behavioural therapy and relational, person-centred interventions to treat adults with various psychological, emotional, and spiritual challenges. Irrespective of my therapeutic approach and the presenting issue, I place the highest priority on creating a warm and empathic, safe, non-judgemental space where my clients and I can collaborate to come up with workable short- and long-term solutions.

I believe that my strength as a therapist lies not only in my ability to help people discover their inner strength, but also realize the potential for it to transform their life.
You deserve to be happy...and you don't need to struggle alone. Stress, worry, sadness, restlessness, frustration, anger, loss, or loneliness can all feel overwhelming at times...but care, connection, treatment, healing, and empowerment are all within reach. Within psychotherapy... insight, understanding, self-awareness, tools for coping, better functioning, and new ways of relating or behaving are all part of the process of change that you may be hoping for. Whether it be unresolved issues from the past or present circumstances and challenges, a safe, respectful, accepting, patient, and encouraging therapeutic space can be surprisingly rewarding, and make more of a difference than expected.

Instead, you are a life, with spiritual freedom on one end, and material conditioning on the other.
If you're struggling with existential crisis, lack of meaning, moral dilemma, confusion of identity, conflicting values, cultural adaptation, difficult decision, forgiveness, temptations, obligations, doubts about your relationship with the Divine or Destiny... philosophical counselling might be able to help you. It's very likely that you feel terrible - you may feel lost, stuck, torn apart, frustrated, depressed, hopeless, lonely, or even in despair - but that instead of calling it mental illness, I see it as a natural component of the human experience, an invitation for growth.

When you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or that you have strayed off your life path, it can be hard to know what to do. Modern society today is often more isolated, which means more time alone with your thoughts, feelings, and more distance to those you are meant to feel closest within your lives. This can lead to dependence on distraction, addiction, or patterns of behaviour that you know take you away from who you are at your core.

I work with young adults to help them discover who they are and what they want, so that they can create the life that they desire.
When did becoming an adult get so tough? Do you ever feel like you woke up one day, and even though you followed all the steps you were supposed to, you continue to feel overwhelmed with anxieties about your life and the future? Did pressures from your family and friends lead you into a career path that you don’t love or a relationship that is unfulfilling, and now you’re wondering how to get your life back? I understand what it is like to reach a certain stage in life and feel misguided, unsupported, and unsure of yourself.

I provide an active, warm and effective style of therapy and coaching that is responsive to you and firmly rooted in evidence of what works.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or burnt out, finding yourself on edge, down, and doubting yourself? You may worry about things you have said or done "wrong" in a day. It's hard to say no - to find the time and energy to take care of your needs. You may feel guilty more often than not. There may be a sense, even when things are seemingly going well, that you may have overlooked something or something "bad" is around the corner. Do you question if you're the problem - that something is wrong with you and that you just can't hack it? Whether others know or it or not, you just don't feel that comfortable in your own skin.
