My Approach to Helping

I bring my whole heart and authentic self to therapy. I utilize warmth, collaboration, and curiosity in understanding who you are as a whole person. I draw from several different schools of practice, but all of them have a central tenet of placing importance on our relationship: on creating a safe space for you, connecting with you and allowing yourself to feel truly seen and deeply accepted. I lean towards the philosophies of Emotion Focused Therapy and Existential Therapy.

I fully believe that being seen, witnessed and heard without judgment by another human being is one of the most healing experiences we can have. In my sessions, you can show up as you are, how you are, and where you are. I will sit and walk with you on your journey. When you work with me, you might describe me as a self-love encourager and a listening ear. I am an advocate for vulnerability, and a holder of space for hope and healing. I believe we require less fixing and more accepting, less criticism and more self-compassion and less perfectionism and more “good enough”.

In my practice, I support people who want to find more acceptance, wholeness and hope in all of who they are. I serve not as an expert or someone with all the answers, but as a collaborative guide who values and deeply respects who you are and the wisdom you already have within you. Our work together will be full of compassion, empathy and trust. I’ll hold space for silence, discomfort and honour exactly where you are in the moment, while gently encouraging you to go out of your comfort zone when you are ready. Through it all, I will meet you exactly where you are at and support you in growing towards where you want to go.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

You don't have to go through a huge life event or trauma to benefit from therapy. Talking with a professional allows you to get a sense of how you are doing in your life, helps you get feedback on whatever you're feeling and offers insight on how those emotions are affecting your everyday life. I believe that anyone can enjoy the benefits of therapy, whether you want to set life goals or establish healthy relationships. You don't need to be in a debilitating crisis to get support. If people are proactive about their mental health, they can prevent their concerns from festering into a larger problem. Therapy can provide relief from symptoms and restore one's quality of life. It can help people learn how to be themselves again.

Groups I Work With

    I live with multiple chronic illnesses, disabilities and have experienced intractable chronic pain, so I hope to connect with you through my lived experiences and provide hope for you who may no longer bear to hope, and where there is a sense of defeat, I hope to hold a safe space for you to unpack whatever that\'s on your heart. I have experience working in a clinical setting where I\'ve worked closely with patients and caregivers. If you are a caregiver or someone experiencing difficulty making meaning in your current life situation, I would be honoured to journey with you. I am comfortable working with issues involving grief and bereavement, as my work in palliative care counselling has equipped me to speak honestly and candidly about your life. I promise to be respectful and count it a privilege to be allowed to peek into your life when you need support. Furthermore, I am comfortable working with a variety of issues due to my training in multicultural counselling. My ability to speak three languages fluently equips me to work with a wide range of clients regardless of age.
