My Approach to Helping
Are you overwhelmed or struggling? Are your relationships strained? It takes strength to acknowledge something in your life just isn't working, and courage to embark on a journey of self-discovery & personal growth. I help diverse adults facing various difficulties (e.g., interpersonal trauma & abuse, anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, grief & loss, planned or unexpected change in life circumstances, borderline personality, relationship issues, difficult family dynamics, health challenges (e.g., chronic illness & pain), work & school stress—find healthy ways to cope & make positive and lasting change.
I have worked at Women's College Hospital & the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health for the past 11 years. I have extensive experience incorporating elements of evidence based treatments (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, relational therapy, staged trauma therapy) to help meet your unique needs & goals.
My practice is understanding, compassionate, and warm. I aim to provide expert and thoughtful guidance & insight, while empowering you to take meaningful steps towards greater self-worth, present-mindedness, healthier & deeper relationships, resiliency to navigate change, and conscious living—so you can grow and flourish during and beyond therapy.
