Life can be hard. Whether it is life transitions, stressors, illness, or any perceived limitation, we will all struggle, experience pain, sorrow, and discomfort. The question is, how do we support ourselves during difficult times? What type of relationship would we like to have with ourselves, others, and the world on the winding path of life? I believe psychotherapy connects us with our strengths, values, and compassion we need to live a more fulfilling, meaningful, and authentic life, despite obstacles we all encounter. It helps guide us toward approaching life with an open heart.
As a Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario with over 16 years of experience working in mental health, I specialize in working with emotional and relationship issues, self-esteem, life transitions as well as childhood trauma. My practice is rooted in attachment and psychodynamic theory, and am trained in NARM - an approach to healing developmental trauma.
If you are looking to develop a kind, compassionate relationship with yourself, and a stronger ability to cope with life's adversities, I invite you to contact me by telephone or by e-mail. I would be honoured to become part of your journey toward meaningful change and well-being. I look forward to hearing from you.

My therapy approach is trauma focused. What this means is my work centers around how developmental and relational wounds from our past show up in the present. Together, we will explore how you had to adapt to get to where you are, and how these adaptations may be getting in the way of living more fully and authentically in the present moment.
