The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with women and their partners in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

Things have been difficult and they haven't been able to overcome their problems alone or with their friend's advice. My clients need someone to listen, someone who knows about the fake face, someone who can help them understand "why"; and help them find a way to get healthy. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from OISE | UofT the University of Toronto where I learned to use research-supported methods to help clients be empowered.

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” - James Baldwin. Mental illness continues to be a taboo subject in many communities, despite the fact that it is a significant aspect of our overall health and well being. The fear that surrounds addressing mental illness leaves many people feeling silenced and isolated and can lead to physical illness overtime.

Therapy is a way out of feeling helpless and hopeless. As your therapist, my priority is getting you results. I focus on building a genuine, empathetic, and positive relationship with you that will bring out your strengths and move you to a better place. Whether for you or a loved one, seeking help to improve your relationships, emotional regulation, and quality of life can be daunting. It's normal to feel doubt. As a client-centered cognitive-behavioural psychotherapist, I use a non-judgemental approach that considers the influence of traumatic memories on current issues. This will shed light onto solutions you haven’t seen before.
