“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.

Wondering why you may be feeling aimless, overwhelmed, empty or unfulfilled? Usually, this means there's something deeper going on inside us. Oftentimes, we have difficulty giving those feelings a voice but know deep down on some level, we may need to in order to enhance our well-being, meet our goals, and be more loving, vibrant and free. To make a meaningful inward discovery we must unearth how our patterns, interactions, relationships, emotions, and thoughts live and breathe in our everyday lives. Strength, clarity and power are rooted within your authentic self and may hold the answers you are seeking. Let's get there together!

As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). 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.

This type of therapy is for you if you are currently feeling out of balance. Anxiety keeps you up at night when you run in your mind all the potential “what ifs” and none of them make you confident. If you have lost trust in your own ability to calm yourself down and give yourself hope to overcome the struggles of your mind. Maybe you are feeling lost in general. The things that used to give you joy no longer spark your heart and they might even feel like chores. Your relationships feel distant and some might even be on the verge of breaking. Looking for help can be terrifying but also it can be exactly what you need.

Do you find yourself stuck in a loop? World right now maybe chaotic and scary not just outside but you feel that inside too. The mask becomes a coping mechanism to hide away from inner pain and misery. Do you feel lonely & lost while there is a need to be seen and heard by someone you love, your partner, your child or parent. Is there a very deep wound that from childhood that has never been healed. I believe that over the years working with different populations I have learnt that basic human need is "being emotionally connected to one another" which supports my work with couples, families and individuals.
