Description

I help teenagers and adults manage anxiety stemming from life transitions, work-life balance, and trauma. Anxiety and past experiences should not define one's value or future, so it's important to break the avoidance cycle that many develop. I use a warm and collaborative approach to empower my clients to overcome the barriers that stop them from achieving their full potential. I also have extensive training in managing compulsive behaviours.

Summary

Starting therapy can feel scary, but it's a unique journey and a life long investment that has the power to impact all areas of life. It's important to find a therapist that you can connect with and trust; therapy can feel very different from one therapist to another, so finding the right fit for your needs is imperative.

My therapeutic approach is attachment-based and integrates psychodynamic therapy, psychoanalysis, CBT, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).  My clients often describe me as warm, authentic and empowering, all the while maintaining a good sense of humour.
