We have an innate capacity to heal, and my goal is to create a space for clients to reconnect with themselves and enhance this process. The foundation of my approach is based in mindfulness practice and self-awareness which includes bringing the client’s unique experiences and strengths to the table. During therapy I teach mindfulness skills that I practice together with my clients, including breathing exercises and active coping strategies, and I provide psychoeducation to deepen our understanding of these practices, why they are important, and how to maximize them in everyday life. I integrate this approach into modalities such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, trauma-focused therapy, traditional psychotherapy, and couples counselling, among others.
I am fortunate to work under supervision while completing my M.Psy degree at Adler University, and this gives me the opportunity to integrate learned practices and further expand myself as a therapist. I am passionate about self-discovery and have a podcast where I discuss psychospiritual and related concepts as they pertain to expanding ourselves, working through challenges, and discovering our life purpose. My values are founded in freedom and kindness, and my strengths include communication and being open to new ideas.
