I work with adults, youth, children, and families. I use a strength-based approach to address concerns, and draw on the theories of narrative, response-based, cognitive behavioural and emotion focused therapy in my work. I also specialize in EMDR, an evidence-based trauma-focused therapy that addresses many mental health challenges. I also employ arts-based approaches, incorporating music and visual arts, especially when working with children and youth.

Life is beautiful. But it's also challenging, unpredictable and constantly shifting. However strong and flexible they are, everyone encounters periods of crisis when their usual coping strategies prove inadequate. Interestingly, the Chinese character for 'crisis' comprises words meaning 'danger' and 'opportunity'. Anguish serves a purpose: it catalyzes change. And though change is frequently difficult, frightening and painful, it's also necessary for growth. A crisis announces a new beginning: an opportunity to pursue a more authentic, rewarding and meaningful life. As a counsellor, I help people negotiate the dangers of a crisis, and seize the unrecognized opportunities they conceal.

I approach therapy as a creative and collaborative process that involves the whole being of both the therapist and client. In order to lead fulfilling, joyful lives, humans need access to the intelligence available through their physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves. Trauma, shame, and fear can disrupt our ability to access and experience these aspects of self fully, and can leave us feeling dissatisfied with our lives. By working directly with clients' felt sense of their bodies, as well as their stories and their feelings, I support clients in deepening their relationship to all aspects of themselves.

I specialize in the area of stress, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders. Anxiety and stress can take many forms, therefore the treatment approach may vary however evidence based CBT is the most effective treatment in these areas, especially when it is paired in combination with psychodynamic, relational and hypnosis approaches also as needed. Healing is probable, and happens as a result of conscious daily actions and unconscious dynamics that shift as a result of this process. After 3-6 sessions you will have a great amount of clarity and substantial tools to begin the journey of healing and happiness- in all areas of life.

Being in persistent pain is so hard. It affects not only the way you feel in your body, but also how much you can do things. It also affects your emotions as well as your relationships. Sometimes people in persistent pain feel stuck in a cycle of doubts, disability, isolation and suffering, specially in cases where all medical options have been tried unsuccessfully and they seem to be saying "it's all in your head". Usually, people in persistent pain feel that they have no control over their pain and even over their lives, as if pain dictated everything that happens to them. There are many challenges, but they can be overcome.
