“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, conscientious women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’ - feeling unworthy of your successes. 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.

My potential clients may or may not have a clear sense of what brings them to therapy. They may be dealing with depression, anxiety, or addiction, among other things. They may be experiencing trouble in relationships, whether it be with family, friends, partners, coworkers, roommates, and others. They want to understand themselves and their relationships better. They are open to the non-linear nature of personal progress.

**Waitlisting for January 2021 ** Healing involves connecting with ourselves through each other, and to each other through ourselves. We are inter-dependently connected, and yet there is dis-connection. Interpersonal harm, systemic barriers and institutional violence impact each and every one of us.

(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.

Therapy can help us to connect with ourselves and others, find meaning, joy, love, acceptance, playfulness and peace of mind. If you are recovering from trauma, if you are stuck or struggling, therapy can create a safe space to work through painful and difficult emotions and experiences in order to live better and feel better. I value creativity, compassion and collaboration. My approach is drawn from attachment theory, narrative therapy, trauma-informed somatic therapies, mindful self-compassion and relational therapy.

Counselling can be a powerful tool for facilitating change. I strive to co-create a therapeutic environment in which people can safely push their edges of self reflection and feel supported to deepen their awareness of themselves in relationship to self, intimate others, community and a broader sociopolitical context. My work is deeply shaped by queer-positive, anti-racist, and trauma-informed perspectives. I am experienced in working with issues related to migration & belonging, sexuality & gender, trauma, relationships, identity formation in youth, and dynamics between parents & adult children.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

You are an individual. There is no one else quite like you. Your therapy should be as unique as you are. We are all the products of our past, from experiences that happened so long ago that they escape memory to what happened just as we opened the door to the present moment. Early in our lives, we learn the skills we need to navigate the world we find ourselves in. Those skills stay with us and help protect us on our journey through life. They continually have an impact on how we deal with ourselves and others every day.

To suffer is human – but to grow and heal is also human. In life, you might experience stress, anxiety, self-criticism, anger, sleep disturbance, chronic pain and disability, difficult transitions or relationships, and other challenges. Sometimes, you might feel so stuck or overwhelmed that your usual coping tools are not quite enough. It can be helpful to seek support from a professional who empowers you to overcome life’s challenges by helping you tap into your inner resources and develop new ones. I am a therapist with years of experience offering such support.

One of the most important aspects to my practice and in our work together is to create a space that fosters safety, trust and openness. When you are in a space where you’re able to access your authentic thoughts, feelings and experiences- that’s where real change and growth can happen! Throughout our lives we learn ways of navigating the world. Often we don’t have the opportunity or privilege to learn ways of coping and processing that serve us in a beneficial way. We do the best we can with the information we have at the time...and that’s surviving! I’d love to help you move from surviving to truly living!
