*Currently accepting NEW clients* - You deserve to feel better. I am so excited and honoured to be a therapist and provide effective therapy (with genuine care). I see all kinds of humans in my practice, who show up struggling with all kinds of human issues. I am excited (and humbled) to work with you on whatever brings you to therapy. Our work together is informed by my experience (nearly twelve years in the mental health system, including hospitals and a school board), knowledge, and more formal certifications (in modalities like CBT for instance -- but there is so much more than CBT!), and of course by you and the uniqueness of your stories and experiences. Please consider reaching out -- I would love to hear from you.

Approach Description: The therapeutic relationship between client and clinician is one of the best predictors of "success" (however you define this) in therapy. I offer warmth, quality and effective care, and a truly judgement-free space. I see you with the utmost compassion and understanding, and my clients would describe me as kind, down to earth, relaxed, (hopefully funny - when appropriate!), and genuinely invested in their wellbeing. I help my clients can find comfort in our relationship quickly, so that they can feel safe with me in doing such (sometimes) painful, vulnerable, and intimate work together. In addition to and of course (!!!), it is just as important to offer a level of clinical skill and experience to support my clients in their process. My approach is eclectic, and I draw from various evidence-based modalities (ways of doing therapy), and consider attachment and human development, in our work. I hold formal certifications in CBT, DBT, ACT, and Brainspotting, and also love to incorporate somatics work (body-based) when helpful. I understand how challenging life can be sometimes. I would be honoured and excited to work with you in making life more fulfilling, enjoyable, or simply a little easier to cope with. Please feel free to reach out for any information - I'd love to hear from you!
