  • Working in the field of mental health with individuals finding their core identity and clarifying their path is my greatest privilege. The trust that is extended to me as I work alongside individuals in vulnerability and honesty is the highest form of currency that I aim to repay. I provide clients with an empathetic holding space, where we can cry, laugh, and process together!

    I prioritize a collaborative approach during the therapeutic process knowing that clients are the experts of their life, and I am a professional invited along on their journey. I ensure that the environment I create is based from client needs, in whatever capacity they wish it. When working with me, I commit to providing a genuine and honest relationship rooted in sincerity.

I work with adults, teens, and couples experiencing:

  • Intergenerational and childhood trauma

  • Emotional disturbances

  • Interpersonal relationships

  • Life transitions

  • Discrimination and oppression

  • Cultural challenges and dual identities

  • Anxiety, depression

  • My preferred modality of work is using a dynamic approach of psychodynamic therapy, humanistic, existential and mindfulness. Most importantly, I incorporate psychoeducation into these modalities to ensure clients are versed in the treatment process. I work on catering each modality to specific client needs and pull from my therapist pot to fill clients up when they feel empty.

    We are all human first, and all else second. However you show up, there will always be space held for you. Despite the large amounts of processing, we do together, I believe that laughing with my clients and introducing humour is a form of healing. If humour is your coping mechanism, I am your therapist!

    There is no right and wrong way to heal; only a means to understand why we need to heal, and how to heal.
