I access different approaches in our work together, with my main lenses being relational, emotion-focused, psychodynamic and person-centered, within a trauma-informed framework.
Whether you’re looking to address something specific in the present, want to explore painful experiences in the past, want to gain perspective and understanding, or looking for a supportive space; I hope to be supportive of your path in therapy. As we connect, I believe in building a therapeutic relationship with you that is based on acceptance, curiosity, compassion and authenticity. We can gradually get in touch with what hurts, core emotions, foster a shared understanding of experiences and access your existing strengths, as we shift how we're connecting to both the hard and meaningful aspects of our lives, others & ourselves.

The direction of therapy within my areas of expertise are psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive processing psychotherapy, grief counselling, and narrative therapy.
My therapeutic approach in my clinical practice is based upon an initial assessment of Client's core values, sense of meaning and identity . It is my experience that people of all stripes seek interior / spiritual balance. Assisting them in the areas that they identify as challenges; feeling overwhelmed, a want of vision and/or control, depression, grieving losses, stress, anxiety, or a sense of aloneness are areas where I can provide my expertise to help them along the path of healing, wellness, and purposefulness.

My clinical orientation is strongly rooted in the integration of psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral theories.
My practice is general in scope, and I work with individuals presenting with anxiety, stress, obsessive-compulsive disorders, major depressive disorders, and other mood-related conditions. I also work with individuals presenting with personality disorders, trauma and other relational/interpersonal difficulties. I also provide comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessment services (e.g., ADHD, ASD, Brain Injury, Personality and Interpersonal Functioning). Over time, my client's ' symptoms reduce, and we shift focus to finding meaning and fulfillment in life.

I integrate Cognitive and Dialectical Behaviour therapy as well at Emotion Focused and Psychodynamic theory in my practice.
You've been feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, experienced trauma and you've learned to cope by pushing down your feelings and living in survival mode. You're likely tired of trying to keep everything together and worry how much longer you can keep it all afloat. You may feel frustrated, overwhelmed and sick of being afraid or hyper-vigilant to the potential threats around you. You hate how all of this is impacting your relationships and need things to change. You are seeking therapy to find someone who will understand and provide help. You are in the right place and I look forward to supporting you with tools so you can thrive.

I take an integrative approach of modalities, including ACT, person-centred, EMDR, CBT, psychodynamic , and mindfulness.
Anxiety can become so pervasive that we wake up feeling a sense of doom before the day has even begun. We may notice problems at work follow us home and we are unable to wind down. I believe you are the expert of your own life, but it can be hard to see different perspectives, and you may feel trapped or helpless. I am here to listen, to support, to challenge, and to help you on your own path towards self development, exploration, and a more meaningful life. I strive to bring my own genuineness and empathy to our therapeutic relationship, providing the environment for you to be your true self and work towards your goals.

As a psychotherapist, with a somatic and psychodynamic orientation, I seek to support people in finding greater freedom, creativity, compassion, empowerment and aliveness in their lives. I believe the antidote to emotional struggles is finding a sense of vitality. Listening, identifying and staying with one's emotional world is the key to self awareness. As a psychotherapist my greatest task is to listen with compassion, for people to speak their deeper truths and to help them find an alternative pathways in living a life that expresses their authenticity and how to contribute with meaning in the world.

This emotion-focused, process-oriented, psychodynamic approach works towards lasting change efficiently by collaboratively combating unhelpful patterns and addressing core underlying emotions.
You are likely on this website because there is some aspect of your life that you are hoping to change. Perhaps you have experienced a history of unstable mood, depression, anxiety, or self-defeating behaviours. You might have tried to cope in ways that do not seem to work, or learn skills but they don't seem to stick, and somehow always end back in a place you don't want to be. If you feel that you have suffered for long enough and you have a strong desire to change the patterns that get you stuck, and process and heal from your core emotional struggle we can work together to make the changes necessary to help you move forward.
