Currently offering remote sessions (phone and video call). Accepting new clients. When most clients come to me they don't know where to start. Things have been difficult and they haven't been able to overcome their problems alone or with their friend's advice. My clients need someone to listen, someone who knows about the fake face, someone who can help them understand "why"; and help them find a way to get healthy. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from OISE | UofT the University of Toronto where I learned to use research-supported methods to help clients be empowered.

*Now accepting clients* For so many, the hardest part of therapy is putting themselves first. When you’ve come to the point of accepting that you need support in overcoming challenges in your life, you may feel overwhelmed, beat down, tired, and low. Many of my clients feel a sense of relief following the first session where they’ve taken the first step in improving their life, relationships, and happiness. Therapy is work, and requires dedication to the process and to yourself.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be very challenging. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to discuss/explore any issues you are experiencing. By deepening your ability to be introspective and self-compassionate, we can explore any negative thinking patterns/habits that may be interfering with you making changes in your life. My style is warm, compassionate, empathetic, and collaborative, but also direct and solution-focused. I specialize in working with children/teens/young adults, and have experience engaging even the most reluctant young people to promote positive change.

Said simply, I believe the intention of psychotherapy is to help people feel better and be better equipped to live well. These objectives are determined by each client, as they consider their own context, influences, hopes and goals. I try to approach each person and each psychotherapy wth intellect, curiosity, creativity and respect.

Or maybe this is your first time seeking support but you find it hard to imagine opening up to a stranger? Life is hard enough as it is, especially during a pandemic. We experience pressure to perform from all angles and this can manifest as burnout, fatigue or lack of motivation. Let us take one thing off your plate.

It's important for me to help people find the root cause to what is making them feel, act, and think in ways that leave them stuck or hurt. I understand that the social context that we live in can become overwhelming for us due to the constant pressures to succeed. When we lose sight of who we are or feel we have fallen off track, we are left with a sense of worthlessness, guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression.
