My Approach to Helping

Have you felt a sense of disconnection from the world or people around you? Are struggling to navigate and understand the aspects of your experience that cause struggle and inner turmoil? Through a compassionate, non-judgmental approach, I will encourage you to open up and get curious about your inner world as a human being. I will support you as you understand, accept, love, and honour all aspects of yourself and your history. By understanding our personal history, we can reclaim the narrative about our experiences on the path to personal transformation.

By the end of our sessions, you will recognize your strengths as building blocks and your obstacles as learning opportunities. After all, your perception and connection to the world reflect how you see yourself, so let’s work from the inside out.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Through the unique and intense bond with my clients I have learned the healing powers of relationships. The most important and lovely aspect of this job is witnessing the positive changes in my clients lives and watching them grow into confident and empowered individuals.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Living with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, Chronic Suicide Ideation and Social Anxiety initially made me feel that I should let go of my childhood dream of being a therapist- I mean, how can I with all my struggles lead anyone else's healing journey? As I began searching for therapists myself I realized that so many were aware through the lens of education but didn't understand my lived experience. I then decided to pursue this path and be transparent about my diagnosis and struggles as a way to not only fight back on the stigma of such conditions but to be that therapist who actually "gets it". Although many clinicians advised me to not discuss my struggles openly, I find it crucial to do what you preach especially in advocacy work around mental health. Vulnerability and transparency are key to any relationship, but especially the therapeutic relationship. Don't ever be ashamed to speak up about your struggles, it is not a hindrance but a strength.
