Whether you are seeking relief from stress or anxiety, learning to navigate uncertainty or change, or struggling to set healthy boundaries, finding a supportive space to explore your thoughts and feelings is important. I believe developing an authentic connection with yourself begins with practicing self-compassion and self-acceptance. My goal is to help you deepen your insight and foster a sense of resiliency and empowerment using a strength-based perspective. I take a collaborative and honest approach to wellness, and I aim to create a safe space for you to honour your feelings as you pursue self-reflection and growth.
It is important my approach meets your needs and is facilitated at a pace that is comfortable for you. My therapeutic approach integrates elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Interventions, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and uses a trauma-informed approach. I will help you address somatic symptoms and nervous system functioning by drawing awareness to the mind-body connection.
How you view your thoughts and define your experiences is meaningful and influences your daily life; together, we will work through unhelpful thoughts and develop strategies to help you live a more meaningful life.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from the University of Western Ontario, and an Advanced Diploma in Child and Youth Work from Humber College.
I have over a decade of experience counselling individuals in crisis, assisting with assessment and stabilization, and helping clients process experiences of trauma, anxiety, and navigating life change and self-development. I have worked with a range of mood, personality, and psychotic disorders, and am honoured to support clients as they move through their wellness journey. I am accepting of all cultural, sexual and gender identities, and always strive to maintain a safe and welcoming space for clients.
I am trained in trauma-informed approaches, emotional addiction and cycle-breaking, nervous system functioning, and suicide prevention. I specialize in trauma work, developing self-awareness and healthy boundaries. My goal is to support you in exploring your past experiences, current levels of functioning, and pursue what it means for you to develop a healthy relationship with experiences of anxiety, stress, trauma, and burnout.
On a Personal Note…
When I am not meeting with clients, I am often soaking up the outdoors. I love spending time in nature, hiking local trails, sitting by the lake, or working around the house. Finding time to reset and reconnect through meditation, yoga and self-reflection is an integral part of my day. I love supporting local businesses and communities, and am often seeking out new markets, farms, cafés, and shops to explore. I enjoy reading and listening to podcasts and am passionate about finding new ways to support and connect with others.
I honour every opportunity to work with clients and am happy to offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together!
