I completed the Masters of Counselling Psychology program at Yorkville University, have been working as an educator for almost 10 years, and I have been an advocate for the importance of self-care, self-compassion, mindfulness , and mental health for many years.
Life is full of unexpected highs and lows and we all need to feel supported, encouraged, and cared for, whether it be during times of hardships or on a regular basis. My intention is to create a safe and non-judgemental space to help you share your story, understand your needs, grieve your losses, and celebrate your accomplishments. Life can feel complicated and busy, so we don’t always make time to acknowledge and care for our mental health. Together we can work to explore situations and find patterns in your life that may be standing in your way of moving towards your goals and figure out new ways to approach old challenges.

Hello and welcome! I am a practioner who is passionate about supporting folks in building a life that is meaningful and value-driven, in spite of whatever challenges are present. I value compassion, collaboration, and social justice, and I embody these by creating a warm, validating, and open space where we can be curious together. I fundamentally believe that every individual is the expert of their own experience, and I aspire to work and learn with and alongside you. I take a critical, anti-oppressive and intersectional stance to my work, as I believe that all of our struggles connect to larger social and structural realities.

My approach is mindfulness based emotion-focused therapy and I draw from various therapy modalities, including solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, attachment-based and narrative therapy.
Feeling overwhelmed with stress or anxiety? Relationships not going well? Are you finding yourself in the same cycles and behaviour patterns that are not helpful or effective and maybe even destructive? Psychotherapy can help. I have a passion for psychotherapy, especially the way skillful conversations can be transformative and enhance relationships. Psychotherapy helps you gain insight to what's working well and what isn't, so that positive change can happen. Self awareness and mindfulness can lead to more effective and meaningful relationships and enhance overall health and well-being.

While trained in various therapeutic modalities, I prefer mindfulness -based approaches because they teach you to regulate your emotions, develop self-compassion and make mindful life choices aligned with what matters most to you.
Are you successful outwardly, but deep down feel a nagging lack of personal fulfilment? Are you swamped with life, and wondering how to achieve more balance, meaning and purpose? Do you want to improve your emotional health and wellbeing, silence your Inner Critic and boost your self-confidence? Are you curious about this " mindfulness " thing that everyone is talking about these days? If so, let's work together! I primarily work with Millennials, Gen Y and Gen Xers who are feeling overwhelmed and dissatisfied with their lives, struggle with low self-esteem and self-worth, or facing difficulty with "adulting."

I draw from developmental and somatic theory, mindfulness , and harm reduction, and employ a trauma-informed approach.
The focus of my work is supporting people to unearth, examine, and clear old cognitive and body-based patterns of responding. Through creating space, it becomes possible to explore fresh ways of being. Working with me involves both talk therapy and simple somatic practices. The questions I often ask are: what is no longer serving you? What is ready to be composted and transformed into rich soil so something new can grow here? What needs to shift so that you can live more fully in the present moment? In therapy, I regularly check in with people to ensure the experience feels safe and supportive.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors
For clients in Toronto with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based counsellors in Toronto can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Toronto MBCT counsellors.
