I understand the courage it takes to begin and commit to therapy, and that is why my first goal is to provide you with a safe and validating environment to share your experiences. Often we reach out for help with the goal of eliminating discomfort, however, I have found that the most significant gains in therapy come from facilitating a more compassionate relationship with ourselves. Being curious about our thoughts and emotions, and how they influence us, can be the first step in feeling empowered and meeting needs which may have been neglected for some time.
Together, we will also work to better understand how the systems you have been exposed to throughout your life, from family dynamics to social norms, impact your self-talk, beliefs, and behaviours. We will challenge internalised beliefs which no longer serve you, so that your authentic self and inner wisdom can be a compass for your human experience.
Self-growth can be a challenging process with tiny victories along the way. As your therapist I will aim to guide you through it by shining a light on your personal values and goals in order to bring more meaning when challenges arise. If you would like to explore whether we’d be a good fit, I encourage you to book a free 20 minute consultation with me.

I utilize interpersonal neuropsychology, attachment theory, feminist, and EMDR to understand how your nervous system reacts to internal and external triggers. I mainly use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to build skills to help with responding to triggers/distress in the present as well as making decisions based on values rather than fear.
