Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.

I’m a clinical social worker and I provide psychotherapy to clients struggling with challenging life experiences. It can be difficult to feel understood or to cope when experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict or low self-confidence. It takes courage to reach out and ask for help, and I can provide a safe space where together we focus on skills that foster resiliency in the face of inevitable life challenges. I have more than a decade of experience working with adults (18+) dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, adjustment issues, grief, shame and guilt, interpersonal conflict, and perinatal concerns, etc.

Often we seek therapy because something in our life is not working for us. We are tired of feeling chronically overwhelmed, we may be unsure of how to manage our relationships, or want to stop negative patterns that no longer serve us. I appreciate that it takes courage to explore our inner world of thoughts and feelings. I am a skilled and compassionate therapist who has supported hundreds of clients on their healing journey as they learn new ways to cope with stress and better navigate their emotional reactions and relationships. Extra support is often the ingredient clients need to overcome significant hurdles in life.

Whether you feel stuck in a loop or trying to adjust to changing life circumstances, if you are feeling debilitated by fear, apathy, frustration, anger or isolation; therapy can help. Exploring your emotions, thinking patterns and automated behaviours within the framework of your own life story is often considered a liberating journey. A journey that can be creative and playful as much as it is informative and containing.

Available for new bookings - video sessions only at this time. I am committed to building a relationship that supports your unique needs, develops your strengths and fosters your innate ability to heal. Often, we aren’t afforded the time, opportunity or privilege to learn the most beneficial ways to sift through what comes our way. We tackle things as best we can using strategies learned from previous experiences. In some situations, our default strategies end up taking us further away from what we want. This can prevent us from fulfilling our needs - we may get stuck not knowing how to cope or how to move forward.

Some of these challenges require less support to process and work through, while others may take longer and require more frequent support to overcome.

Do you want to try something different which will challenge you and direct your awareness to how you are living your life? Awareness is the first step in making any change. 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.
