My hope is to meet those who seek my accompaniment where they are at and to provide a space in which they feel secure, supported, and free to explore without fear of judgement. With you, I hope to unearth the ways in which you relate to and connect with the world around you: how your past and present ways of relating have provided you and your relational constellations with both service, and disservice. I aim to value and to cherish your cultural intersections - incorporating these into the work we engage together.

All of us have, at times, struggled to live our lives in a way that feels fulfilling. We can become stuck in a cycle of negative thinking, dreary feelings, and ineffectual behaviours. In the midst of the many challenges in life, having someone share part of the journey with you and help provide clarity can be enormously helpful. I am a psychologist with over twenty years of experience counselling individuals, leading groups, and supervising therapists-in-training. I have successfully treated a variety of needs and find meaning in working with grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Life can be exceptionally excruciating. Over time, we collect many wounds and traumas. I work with clients who have mood disorders, anxiety disorders, grief, and other trauma-related issues. Whether you're dealing with new losses (let's not forget old losses that still feel fresh), life transitions, or you don't know how to take a step forward, we can do this together. My speciality is in mental health, PTSD, and BPD. I also have advanced training in EMDR and complex trauma.

It is human to struggle, we all have our ups and downs and being isolated in our emotional experience can just make it worse. Most emotions and behaviour makes sense in context. However, when left on our own to try to piece together our challenges, we can find ourselves plagued with self doubt and often feel lost. Therapy can help you see your situation objectively, accept even the imperfect parts of yourself, and work to use these parts as a roadmap into better health and well-being. We are not always able to control what life throws our way, but with help, we can transform these experiences into personal growth and wisdom.
