There are many reasons why you may have landed here, including:
anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, burnout, trauma, or overwhelming thoughts and feelings
Regardless of the circumstances that brought you here today, I’m here to help.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), but human, first and foremost. I chose this career path because I wanted my work to have a positive impact on the lives of others, even if in the smallest way. I am passionate about my role in guiding and empowering others to live authentic, fulfilling, and meaningful lives and think it’s a privilege when individuals invite me to support them on their journey. I believe my passion for therapy stems from my own experiences of anxiety, trauma, grief, self-esteem, and navigating complex relationships.
As part of my education, I have completed an undergraduate degree in Social Psychology at McMaster University and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree at Yorkville University. I have received additional training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectial Behaviour Therapy. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
When I’m not working, I enjoy long-distance running, hiking with my dog, exploring new places, photography, baking delicious treats, and spending quality time with close friends and family.
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.”
– C.G. Jung
I help to leverage your strengths and make meaningful changes beyond the therapy room.
While offering an empathetic ear and a safe space to unpack your story, I follow evidence-based strategies to support your healing journey. My approach to treatment is holistic and client-centered with the intention of increasing your capacity to connect with yourself and move towards ways of living more fully and authentically. Above all, my practice is founded on principles of respect, collaboration, safety and trust, and tailors therapy to each person’s unique needs, hopes and goals. Together we will make lasting breakthroughs that will carry you beyond our sessions and towards a future of mental health and wellness.
I believe we are the experts of our own lives, but sometimes we need someone to hold a steady lantern for us as we navigate the often dark and rocky terrain of life. Someone who can help us gain perspective and vision. I hope that I can be that light-bearer, walking with you as you learn to honour your story, nurture your purpose, and live a fulfilling life!
