We all need a safe space, and a person to hear, and understand us. I believe that we can tackle problems more effectively when we can discuss them openly and honestly. It’s my role to facilitate that conversation and create the pathway towards your preferred ways of living.

I believe that you have the ability to live your best and most fulfilling life with some support and guidance. Mental health is one of the most feared topics to discuss because of all the stigma and shame associated with struggling with mental and psychological wellness. My hope is that we can work together to identify, acknowledge and work through any of the struggles you are experiencing.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with 9 years experience working with Children, Youth and their Family. As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.

We all may experience difficulties and stresses in life that can negatively affect how we feel about ourselves and our ability to live or lives. When problems take hold, we can feel stuck. It can be helpful to have a place to explore what is causing difficulty and find solutions to move out of the problem. I work with people who want to take their lives back from the effects of the problems they are stuggling with. Some examples of the problems I have helped clients with are depression, anger, grief, impacts of trauma, relationship difficulties, work/school related stress and effects of injustice.
