Is stress or anxiety impacting your sleep, work, health and your relationships? Perhaps you're wondering if it's ever going to get better. You may fear that you are "going crazy." You've tried to do it on your own with different coping skills but it does not seem to work. You are not alone! Anxiety and depression is a brain disease and it is quite common, but there is hope! There are many successful and evidence-based ways I can help you experience a sense of peace and get back to doing the things you want to do!

For the past 16 years I have been working, researching and helping people. My undergraduate degree is in Psychology from Toronto and Doctorate is in Clinical Psychology from Alliant University, San Diego. My training includes children, teenagers, adults, elderly, couples in the areas of chronic pain, addictions, depression, anxiety & cultural/ethnic.

My approach to treatment is based on creating a supportive, validating and compassionate alliance whereby we can begin therapy from a place of confidence and trust. I have incorporated various styles of practice, including insight oriented, cognitive behavioral, and integrative, to guide people so they can better understand themselves.
