Life can sometimes feel difficult and overwhelming, and prevent us from living the way we would like. I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental, safe-space dedicated to helping you overcome your challenges. I combine neuroscience, mindfulness, and a strengths-based, collaborative approach to empower you on your journey to well-being. After getting a PhD in Biology and spending 15 years in the corporate world, I decided to change careers and follow my passion for helping others. I've learned that healing is possible with the right approach.
I am currently finishing my Masters in Psychology Counselling and interning as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), planning to fully graduate in August 2024. My therapeutic approaches include CBT/ACT, Narrative Therapy, and EMDR. I focus on anxiety, depression, self-esteem, 2SLGBTQ+ issues, grief, trauma, and interpersonal relationships.
I truly believe with the right support, you can find solutions to your problems and build a more fulfilling life. I would be honoured if we could work together towards your goals. I am available for virtual therapy with anyone in Ontario or in person in Markham. If you would like to work with me, please call or email to set up a free consultation.

I generally start with taking a mindful and self-compassionate approach, and then work with clients to collaboratively determine goals and treatment plans. While we'll generally use one main approach, we'll bring in elements of other approaches as needed. It's ultimately about what the client needs and feels most comfortable with.

I recommend a therapy type based on the unique needs of each individual. We will integrate both mindfulness and neuroscience into our approach in a way that's comfortable. Mindfulness helps to promote emotional regulation and self-compassion, while neuroscience introduces the mind-body connection to the healing process. I usually use CBT early on before we align on the best approach together.
