If you're having trouble managing your emotions, maintaining healthy relationships, or moving on from a past experience, then I want to offer you some extra support. The past two years have been especially taxing for all of us, leaving many of us feeling stalled in our previous trajectories, and perhaps struggling to navigate the financial, emotional, and mental challenges that have emerged. This can make it feel like reaching your potential is less achievable. I employ a culturally sensitive, collaborative, and client-centered approach to therapy that seeks to establish an environment of stability, trust, safety, and non-judgement.

Life is beautiful but it is also hard, exhausting, sad, messy and temperamental. Coping with the intense pressures and stress we face can be very challenging and isolating. I believe therapy is about having a relationship where we can safely and authentically explore and discover where we tend to hide parts of ourselves, run away, and hold back our truth from the world. Together we will explore this in a manner that welcomes and supports your whole being to foster an ongoing process of self-awareness, healing and self development - and towards you moving in the world with greater resiliency, authenticity and a deeper sense of self.

I’m here to help you overcome anxiety, to feel empowered, to flourish in your relationships and to facilitate the healing and change you desire in a safe, confidential, creative and compassionate setting. I am a trauma-informed therapist who specializes in self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, loneliness, depression, relationships, dissociation, anger and grief/loss. Change happens when we expand our self-awareness by understanding ourselves. But to understand ourselves, we first need to be understood. That’s why the therapeutic relationship—built on trust, honesty, empathy and vulnerability—lies at the heart of personal change.

If you've experienced sexual abuse (rape, childhood sexual abuse, harassment) it's likely you've noticed changes in how you think, feel and act. Maybe you believe that you deserve what happened or that there was something you should have done to stop it. You may see the world as a dangerous place and people as untrustworthy. You're likely on edge, hypervigilant and feel out of control of your emotions - or maybe you don't feel them at all. You can't sleep, relationships are difficult, you feel haunted by your memories, sex and intimacy aren't as they used to be, and it feels like nothing you've tried works. This is trauma.

One of the most important things a therapist can offer is the ability to ‘hold space’ for clients. This means we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they're on without judging. Let's unpack what you are struggling with in order to bring about positive change in your thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and relationships.

In therapy, you will explore “what's wrong for you” instead of “what's wrong with you”. There is enormous potential for self-awareness and self-growth with help from a listening, caring, and attuned therapist. I provide Relational Therapy, which holds that there is great potential for healing, growth and change from within a therapeutic relationship. I meet my clients with great respect, as a fellow traveler in the therapeutic journey. My wish is to cultivate a safe space for my clients to experience their emotions and encounter their beliefs about themselves.

When we strive to be independent “high achievers”, it can feel natural to diminish and intellectualize emotions. We become skilled in managing the feelings of others, while minimizing our own needs. We might understand what is causing us pain, but feel stuck and overwhelmed about taking action. I offer non-judgemental space for individuals and couples to explore their experiences with nuance and compassion. My areas of focus are ADHD, relationships, perfectionism, career concerns, racial identity, grief and anxiety. Together, we'll cultivate resilience and self-awareness, moving you towards where you want to be.
