***Currently offering Phone and Online Video sessions. If you are a Front Line Worker go to https://covid19therapists.com/ for Free Therapy over the Phone.*** When we feel overwhelmed, resentful, anxious, or unhappy, our emotions are telling us that something isn't right. Usually that is because we have started making decisions that are intended to protect us from feeling pain that we have felt before, pain that was too much too bare. When we discover what these patterns in our behaviour or relationships are, and what the pain or fear is that is underneath them, it can open up space for joy, creativity, and peace.

Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and negative thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. Mental health doesn’t have to be this hard. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make quality mental health therapy simple and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.
