“No matter how successful I am, I still feel like a failure. I worry that everyone will find out I’m an imposter, and my accomplishments were all flukes.” Sound familiar? I work with driven, smart, professional women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’. Your inner critic can steal away so many moments of joy and make you lose sight of your true self. Ready to make a change? Therapy can create space for confidence, clarity, self-worth, and genuine fulfillment.

The therapeutic encounter fosters acceptance of what has, or has not happened to you in your life. It's a transformative experience that allows you to know yourself profoundly and helps you move forward in your life. I use the psychoanalytic approach, which is based on working through your internal conflicts and puzzling self-sabotaging behaviours. Using dreams, free association and working with the "here and now" of our relationship, we work together to address what prompted you to seek help.

I also understand how hard this is when navigating toxic, oppressive cultures, whether it be family, work, school or larger society. The result is heart & spirit woundedness and a mixed bag of feelings such as fear, grief, anxiety, depression, confusion, rage and stuckness, to name a few.

I work with people who are dealing with a variety of concerns, including relationship issues and histories of interpersonal trauma; lack of motivation; depression &/or anxiety; difficulties with feelings; low self-esteem/self-confidence; and gender or sexual orientation issues. Therapy may also address difficulties managing life transitions; grief and loss; confusion related to personal meaning, direction and values; stress management; aging; and health & mental-health related symptoms. I believe a therapeutic relationship needs to be client-centred, warm, safe, supportive, non-judgmental, compassionate, interactive, and respectful.

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.

These experiences can lead to emotions such as grief, anger and shame, and can impact self-esteem, identity and relationships.

A lesson that has stood out to me in practice, is to engage with therapeutic work that has relevance within my own lived experience. Trauma and loss have always been a prominent part of my life and within my own context, I have struggled with how chaotic, isolating and unknown these experiences can be. A small insight that has aided me in processing hardship, is that these experiences are human and that our grieving process should be treated gently. This can be difficult to recognize and do on our own. I aim to help nurture and normalize this experience.
