Description

I am a psychodynamic and certified trauma therapist. I use a non-pathologizing approach to understand human distress. Instead of seeing it as an illness, I help people see their inherent strengths and understand the meaning behind their struggles.

Many of the struggles people want help with are coping strategies that worked at earlier times in their lives, but are no longer helpful. I help people explore how these behaviours came to be, how they served them, and how to cultivate new strategies that are more aligned with their goals and values.

Facility Information

Summary

I welcome people from all backgrounds, cultures, orientations and identities. I help people who are struggling with the challenges of anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, relationships, and emotion regulation and/or disconnectedness.

All of these experiences can put strain on our ability to connect with ourselves and the people in our lives. I work with people to create new ways of understanding themselves, their emotional worlds, and their relationships so they can live with more peace and alignment with their core values.
