"Stress, fear, loss, life transitions and/or migrating to a new country can influence the production of anxiety, depression, anger, insomnia, complicated grief, and behavioral concerns in an individual; they can also be underlining factors for a variety of relationship issues." This is not often readily at an individual's level of awareness and as such can take time to uncover. Meeting an individual where they are in life and the changing process is a very important step, as is providing a safe judgement free environment where one can explore the ins and outs of his/her/their symptoms/concerns, while working to build coping skills.

My approach to therapy is one that possesses systemic undertones and consideration for the client's cultural background as it is believed that multiple factors - including but not limited to family of origin, cultural upbringing, religion, adjustment/transitions, and life events - can play an influential role and potentially compound one's concerns/issues.

I have 10+ years working with family/children in different capacities. I have been on both sides of the spectrum, I have been the one who felt too ashamed to talk about a situation, I know how it felt to hold the feelings inside and what a relief it was to finally let it out. Let me help you to release/work through compounded feelings, thoughts and behaviors
