My therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy and sensitivity, valuing the cultural origins of each individual. I believe in a holistic and integrative approach to psychotherapy that encompasses all aspects of a person's being. Understanding one's functioning and how to navigate change with serenity is an essential aspect of my approach. By combining neuropsychological and psychological perspectives, I have developed a comprehensive framework that addresses the interconnectedness of mind and brain. In my practice, I am committed to embracing diversity and promoting the dignity of each individual.

It can be hard to know whom or what to trust when making decisions about the well-being of your child.

I'm so glad you're here. I help clients to navigate and cope with anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, trauma/PTSD, grief, and loss. We can work together through shame, harsh inner critics, not feeling “good enough”, people pleasing, chronic worry, and feeling stuck or heavy. We can find balance and address issues related to perfectionism or self-worth in the arts, athletics, career/school, or family environments. I have found that understanding the impact of trauma or chronic stress on our brain and behaviours is empowering, validating, and can contribute to a more compassionate and loving relationship with our self.

With trauma and loss having been prominent aspects of my life, I am familiar with how the impacts of these experiences act as barriers to connection and repair.

Do you have a difficult time looking at yourself with compassion and acceptance because the way you react, behave, and feel is wrong? Maybe it’s reacting with anger and defensiveness, or isolation and shutting down. Maybe it’s feeling like you are not smart enough. attractive enough, or simply not enough. Either way, you are left feeling ashamed of who you are. Imagine a life where you did not feel this way. You did not feel controlled by your emotions, you found joy in the ups and downs, and you look at yourself in a positive light. Beginning therapy is nerve-wracking, but I hope you take a moment (and a deep breath) to reach out.
