My integrated approach: EMDR, CBT, narrative, attachment-based and psychodynamic therapies.
There are so many reasons why you might be thinking about therapy and I am so pleased you landed here. Maybe you’ve noticed a habit of getting in your own way when it comes personal or professional goals, or maybe you've been feeling anxious or down but unsure why; maybe unresolved memories or feelings have been intruding into your present, or maybe you don't quite feel how you would like to feel about yourself at this point in your life. I can help you make sense of these experiences and make the changes you want. Together we will build on your strengths, learn new coping skills, and work towards a more fulfilling life for you.

I use a relational, psychodynamic approach informed by trauma, attachment, somatic and mindfulness theory.
We are living in difficult times. Many people today are feeling alienated from themselves and others, feeling anxious or depressed. Some are feeling little or nothing; others are overwhelmed, having difficulties with relationships, or they're confused about their direction in life. Wherever you are, I will meet you there with kind attention and encouragement, and together we will unravel your tensions and discover how to help you find your inner strength and resourcefulness. I have been practising as a Registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist for over 20 years and have helped many people find greater health and fulfillment in life.

My orientation is trauma-informed and psychodynamic , as I seek to provide you with the room you need to explore how your past may be impacting, or even overwhelming your present.
Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

Psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy helps people to live more authentic, present, and engaged lives by placing priority on building trust and being understood.
Something is wrong, but we can't quite grasp what. We search for a better understanding of ourselves in order to solve our emotional and psychological discontent. We think about the events of the day, relationships, childhood and the past. Still, something doesn't seem right. We act and feel in ways that create discord. I provide psychotherapy for people who are interested in looking for the deeper meaning behind the discomfort in their lives. The goal is to be able to have more meaningful relationships, fulfilling work and societal contributions, as well as the capacity to bear the difficulties that are part of living fully.

My primary modalities are Psychodynamic therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
A core belief that informs my approach to therapy is that there is an inherent goodness within all of us and that we are all seeking ways to realize and cultivate this goodness. Sometimes in this pursuit, we find ourselves stuck in a place that we never expected or anticipated (often not even by our own doing). In this place, it may seem like the harder we try, the deeper we burrow ourselves into somewhere we actually don’t want to be. My hope is that my work consists of coming alongside others who find themselves stuck in these places and collaborate to find ways out and make progress towards realizing the goodness inside.

My approach involves careful and considerate listening, a kind of listening that is mostly not found in everyday communication. Listening together to what you say about your own life allows for us to have a very different conversation, creating the space for you to explore often overlooked or unconscious parts of your experience, parts that may be underlying the distress that has brought you to therapy. Psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis allow for speaking what was priorly unspeakable, effecting insight, change, and relief from symptoms.

I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma and PTSD, addiction, life transitions, grief and loss, family conflict and relationship issues. Together we will identify the barriers that limit you, shift negative thoughts, feelings and patterns, process old wounds and deepen your understanding of how you connect with yourself, others and the world around you.

My approach is psychodynamic psychotherapy, meaning I primarily use talk therapy - anything that comes to mind, including dreams, fantasies, presenting issues and even in-depth exploration of early experiences - to help understand the root causes to heal old or repressed emotional wounds.
I specialize in clients with relationship, self-esteem, anxiety, sex, body image and family dynamic challenges. The goal is understanding current feelings and difficulties and where they come from, to create new, positive interpersonal experiences and relationships. Often these feel impossible to conquer alone and I help clients unpack with an aim to resolve these issues.
