Life is filled with challenges, both visible and hidden, that can impede our growth and fulfillment in life. Whether internal or external, anchored in the past, present or future, these challenges can burden us with anxiety, depression, overwhelm, self-doubt, dread and distress. However they show up, whatever their origins, I believe life’s challenges are meant to shape us, not define us.

Welcome and thank you for being here. Whether you are new to therapy or returning for support, I can help you get unstuck, increase awareness, build practical skills, address underlying themes, break patterns, set boundaries, and get back to a place of greater connectedness to yourself and others. My approach to counselling strives to provide you with a compassionate and validating space to do your inner work. There’s nothing “too small/big” or “weird” that can’t be talked about in therapy so long as you feel safe enough to do so. My aim is to ensure you feel heard, understood, supported and safe in therapy.

Therapy is a unique relationship where you can learn about yourself, your past, and who you would like to be, through a process of analysis, discussion, acceptance, and integration. A therapeutic relationship is a space where you can speak openly and freely with a person who is trained to listen and provide insight otherwise not available to you. As a therapist, I meet you where you are at as a person, and try to understand your goals, your background, and your pain. The process is meant to lead to greater interior freedom, that can reverberate out into all aspects of your life.

I use a relational approach to support you when facing life transitions, relationship concerns, general stress, sexual/identity exploration, trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, and depression. I am passionate about supporting self-identified women, youth, and couples who are looking to deepen their connection to themselves. I believe that we are born whole and our lived experiences play a role in shaping our perception of self, others, and the world around us. I am inspired by those who have the courage to look within and express their fears, desires, and goals – and find breakthroughs along the way.

My work is relational, emotion-focused, and experiential. Relational means establishing a unique and real connection with people — i.e. not being a “blank slate” therapist. Emotion-focused means helping people pay attention to old emotional patterns that may no longer be serving them. Experiential means going beyond just talking about patterns. It means offering actual in-session experiences of doing things a different way — working together to form new and preferred patterns that are conducive to one’s therapy goal(s).

I practice psychodynamic therapy, integrating mindfulness and somatic therapy. I often see people who have histories of growing up in invalidating or otherwise harmful environments in which they were not heard, and rarely attuned to. They may be struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, attachment injuries or CPTSD, heightened shame, existential questions, and a desire to develop a better relationship with themselves - they have largely moved beyond immediate trauma responses and are looking to explore more deeply.

Relationships issues, life transitions, and grief, are topics especially close to my heart. Together, we can clarify your values and what you're looking for in a partner, explore strategies for communicating more effectively in your relationships, use insight and self-compassion to disrupt destructive patterns of behavior, or help you come to terms with a devastating break-up.

At some point in our lives, we may just need to get some support to get through life’s challenges. I work with adult individuals and couples who are experiencing, or have experienced anxiety, depression, stress, trauma responses, chronic pain, relationship and communication challenges, attachment wounds and injuries, life transitions, issues of ageing, or grief, loss, and bereavement. My approach is collaborative and relational. I strive to honour your lived experience, autonomy, identity, and culture as we work together, and to support you to strengthen connections with yourself, your values, and your goals.

I work with people desiring stronger, deeper and more fulfilling relationships with themselves, and with other people. If you're struggling to feel well and to live the life you want, you may feel cut off from your core sense of self. You may have faced a rupture in trust, experienced deep loss, or not had the care you needed when you needed it most. You may find yourself locked in unhelpful cycles, caught in upsetting memories from the past, or turning to mindless distractions or harmful comforts. You may long to understand your own inner world more completely, or to engage life in a way that feels congruent with who you are.

Are you a member of a marginalized community (women, BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, people with mental health issues, etc.)? You matter, and you deserve to experience the transformative possibilities of a strong therapeutic relationship. My passion is supporting people with marginalized identities and their allies. Through our work together, I have witnessed many clients recognize their resiliency, regain their power, and realize their potential. Life ebbs and flows with challenges, triumphs, and everything in between. No matter where you are in your life’s journey, counselling can provide a safe space for exploration and discovery.

So many of our negative experiences in life are characterized by a real or perceived sense of “aloneness.” Many of us may even consider these experiences normal or “not a big deal” because it’s what we’re accustomed to. These experiences impact our sense of safety + belonging in the world, in relationships, and with ourselves. It is this sense of safety + belonging that we want to cultivate together in therapy, so that you can trust yourself to cope with life’s challenges. It’s often the case that our default way of coping involves moving away from pain...
