****No longer accepting Clients****Life can be overwhelming, unfair and full of the unexpected. As we seek change in our own behaviour and circumstances, we are often met with unexpected pain, anxiety, and anger that can be difficult to manage. Psychotherapy is a process in which we address obstacles in life and set goals to healing, understanding and moving forward. There is not challenge in life, big or small, that doesn't deserve the thoughtful reflection of therapy.

Hardship and struggle are part of the human experience and change is always on the horizon. With the right therapeutic chemistry (a place where you can be unfiltered and unapologetic!) you have the capacity to discover who you are, what you’re worth, what you need, and decide how you want to move forward. I meet you with warmth, silliness, non-judgment, and a deep respect for cultural diversity as you work through: Personal Development, Burn Out, Social Anxiety, Major life transitions, People Pleasing, Anxiety, Stress, Perfectionism, Setting Boundaries, Depression, Self-Esteem, and Relationship Issues.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

Particularly, ones who have trauma, body image issues, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and creative interventions.

Awareness gives you a choice: do I keep doing what I have been doing or do I want to "try on" a new behaviour and see what changes? Together we will work through issues which are interfering with your ability to live your life fully in the here and now.

If you're feeling stuck in your life and relationships, or you're having difficulty setting boundaries and managing uncomfortable feelings- therapy can be a powerful tool. When we are allowed the opportunity to be deeply listen and spend time with others (and ourselves) in a present, open way – healing happens. Humans are amazing and complex beings and making change in our lives can be a difficult and daunting task to approach alone.
