About

Seeking and braving therapy can be daunting and overwhelming. You might be feeling depressed, hopeless, anxious, or unmotivated to start. I want you to know that you are not alone. With an empathetic approach, I will work with you and together we can ensure you leave each session feeling validated, accepted and respectfully challenged when needing another perspective. I want you to know that your problems are never "too much" and you deserve to find the solutions to overcome your challenges.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, supportive and compassionate. I use a client-centered, strength-based, cognitive behavioural and emotionally focused lens to create a non-judgemental and safe space for you to succeed. Everyone's therapeutic journey is unique and together we will find a path that suits you best!

Your journey to self-growth and personal development doesn't have to be lonely. I encourage you to reach out to me if you are curious about making changes to unhelpful patterns in your life and are eager to gain more comfort when relating to yourself and others.
