Announcement icon In an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, I offer online Zoom sessions and socially distanced sessions.
Do you feel bogged down by intense anxiety or stress? Do you feel hopeless or depressed about your life? Are the relationships in your life are imbalanced or filled with tension? Are you having trouble letting go of difficult past experiences or memories? Does addiction have a tight grip on your life? If you relate to any of those questions and would like help navigating difficult emotions, behaviours, relationships, or trauma, come talk to me. I would be honoured to be a part of your journey and help you achieve your goals.
Together we will work on strategies to create awareness and identify the root cause of your presenting problems. The goal is to help you be happier, more fulfilled, and better connected. I use an eclectic evidence-based approach, blending CBT, DBT, IFS, Attachment Theory, and various trauma modalities to best suit your therapeutic needs.
Reaching out for help is a courageous first step. I honour this courage by having a person-centered approach to counselling. I believe you have the strengths and resources inside you to heal, and our goal is rediscover the power you hold. This is the reason my practice is named after the concept of Mana, which refers to the healing force within the self.
