It can sometimes feel like being a young person is harder than ever in today’s world. Cyberbullying, mental health, gender and sexuality, body image, suicide rates, eating disorders, family breakdown and substance use are among the challenges teens and young adults often have to deal with. These are in addition to school work, dating, and friends. My role is to support and guide you while working to overcome the challenges you face. I aim to provide a caring and trusting space where you can share whatever you want and feel understood. We can work together to help you better cope with your experiences and emotions.
We've all felt stuck, frustrated, worried or like we are spinning out of control at one time or another. And sometimes we feel so... alone. You know there's more to you than meets the eye, if only someone could see it. Do you have this nagging intuition that what you want is just out of reach -- a better self-image, a better relationship or a better life? I'd like to help.
You are here because you are worried about your child or teenager, or you'd like your family to get along better. You might be worried about your child's ability to manage their emotions effectively and it could be affecting your family's functioning. You are in the right place and reaching out for help is the first step towards change. I am a dedicated and passionate therapist that works hard to ensure you and your family feels accepted, understood and safe while you are working on your therapy goals.
I am a therapist, life coach and registered social worker. I promote mental health and wellness through therapy and life coaching sessions as well as advocacy work.

Counselling can be a powerful tool for facilitating change. I strive to co-create a therapeutic environment in which people can safely commit to self-reflection & feel supported to deepen their awareness of themselves in relationship to self, intimate others, community and a broader sociopolitical context. My work is deeply shaped by anti-racist and trauma-informed perspectives. I view therapy as rooted in collaborative allyship work, & strive to approach this practice through an evolving lens of humility, intersectionality & anti-oppression.I have particular expertise working at the intersections of trauma and migration & identity.
My style of coaching is client-led, active, adventurous, collaborative, and compassionately challenging. Using specialised, bottom-up and top-down approaches to leverage brain design, functionality, and neuroplasticity, sessions go above and beyond the standard formulaic coaching model to engage the subconscious mind, deepen transformation, foster rapid results, and facilitate positive long-term change in neural architecture.
