It can feel intimidating to seek therapy — like embarking on a path into the deepest woods. Psychotherapy can be likened to traveling through these woods alongside someone trained and experienced in navigating the wilderness. Undertaking the path together, it becomes more possible to move bravely into the dark, scale the hills, descend the slopes, become curious about the landscape, and explore uncharted terrain.

My background is in Health Psychology and I bring a Mind-Body perspective to my work. With any change comes growing pains, which is why I specialize in working with professionals navigating important life transitions including career decisions, romantic relationships, friendships, and adjustment to parenthood. Often individuals present questions on how they can feel more fulfilled or satisfied in life. Or how to grow in confidence, or become more grounded in oneself. Many look to find better ways to find meaning and fulfillment in our Modern, Technology-Focused culture.

I work with clients who exhibit a compulsive, chronic, physiological or psychological need for a habit-forming substance, behavior, or activity. Needs may vary. The most common is to change or discontinue the addictive behaviour or substance use. Goals may range from harm reduction to complete abstinence. Most of my clients want to regain control over their lives through changing their behaviours, substance usage, perceptions about who they are and what they need to live a healthy fruitful life. Some clients have had trauma in their lives and need open discussion, compassion, non-judgmental treatment and trauma informed care.
