It is my belief that we all deserve the opportunity to create a space for ourselves to consider our personal experiences and express that which is important to us. Through a relational approach, my aim is to meet people where they are and work towards greater clarity and freedom from the pain and fear we have experienced in the past. I believe in the power of relationship to help us heal, grow, and discover how to be intentional about the kind of life we want to live. I approach my work with an emphasis on listening, safety, insight, and building compassion for self and others.
Each person deserves to have an environment where they can feel secure, validated and free to be who they are without worry of judgement. Having access to an encouraging environment can promote a journey towards a healthier perspective on life, along with increased feelings of peace and satisfaction. My approach to treatment is geared towards those who can use support in modifying negative thinking patterns, feelings of uneasiness, challenges in acknowledging personal strengths, difficulty with healthy boundary setting, ongoing or acute life challenges and relationship difficulties.
During my internship at a domestic violence shelter, I gained valuable experience providing support to those who have been impacted by verbal, emotional, physical and sexual abuse that can occur in unhealthy relationships. I also have experience serving a varied population including those who are experiencing chronic stress, anxiety and depression, as well as those who are having difficulty adjusting to the ongoing challenges and struggles that life can bring. My experience with Nonviolent Communication provides a solid foundation for building healthy relationships and broadening communication and conflict resolution skills.
There comes a time where everyone struggles with overwhelming stresses, situations, and uncomfortable feelings that create barriers to feeling healthy, and at peace. When this occurs, it can be beneficial to have a non-judgmental, neutral person to talk to, hear you, and assist you with identifying your barriers and identify what you need to feel the best version of yourself. Using an open, relaxed, and conversational approach I will listen, guide, and assist you to identify your strengths, needs, and current obstacles. I will encourage increased self- awareness to create and/or maintain a positive and empowered sense of self.

Through therapy, you can connect with your inner strengths, identify your needs and priorities and take steps to greater peace and satisfaction.

As people, over our lifetime we experience medical, physical, psychological and relational challenges. Therapy provides emotional support during these times, so we can transform our feelings of fear and vulnerability to strength and confidence. By being aware, of how we respond and why we react to change the way we do can help us grow. All transitions in life effect our functioning within ourselves and with others. Emotional Support Therapy provides the tools needed to unify our emotional and intellectual processing, thus promoting self-growth and well-being in the face of life's changes.
Life is filled with ups and downs - it can be painful and bring difficult challenges. Sometimes when feeling distressed, it's hard to break free and move forward.
