My Approach to Helping

In my practice, I draw from an anti-oppressive, client-focused, strength-based framework. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that you are the expert of your experience. My approach is eclectic, drawing from a variety of evidence-based practices including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), trauma informed therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), mindfulness practice, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

I consider it an absolute privilege every single time someone welcomes me to share in their therapeutic process. My intention is to bring authenticity, empathy and non-judgemental guidance to the room. Therapy is a very personal experience, so I try to enter the therapeutic relationship as a 'clean slate', free of judgement or any agenda other than working towards what you want and need in your healing.

Currently I am only offering virtual appointments but plan to offer in-person sessions very soon. If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment, please reach out.

Let's do this!

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Finding a therapist who gets you can be a daunting and exhausting task. Whether you have worked with a therapist in the past, or are starting out for the very first time, I am so happy that you are here. Although it may be uncomfortable at first, therapy can be a powerful tool to understand yourself, build confidence, improve your relationships and live a more fulfilling life.

My Therapy Focus

In my therapeutic work, I collaborate with clients to formulate an approach that best fit their needs. I acknowledge that everyone has their own unique experiences and set of challenges, that there is not a one- size-fits-all approach when it comes to a client's unique therapeutic process. I work with people struggling with anxiety and panic disorders, low mood, relationship struggles, grief and loss, trauma and more.
