About

There are moments in your life that are challenging and it can leave you feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Through these moments, I want to support you so that you never feel alone. Together we can work towards achieving mental health wellness for your daily life.

The expectations we apply to ourselves greatly affects the way we live our experiences. These expectations, when not achieved, affect the way we think and feel, creating physical reactions and behaviours. My goal is to support you in managing these feelings while helping you overcome your challenges. Using an integrative approach, we can pull from several different therapies to guide your therapeutic experience and work through the challenges you're facing in your daily life.

The story we write for ourselves greatly affects the way we think, feel and behave throughout our life experiences - I want to explore this all with you. Let's embark on a journey together to discover who you are and explore your life while focusing on self-reflection and developing tools to guide you through any challenges!
