Let’s be honest – life is not always easy, pleasant or filled with love and light! However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t meaning within those experiences or reasons why they shouldn’t be honoured in our life. It’s common to resist difficult emotions, feel stuck in life, feel surrounded by toxic positivity in difficult times, or uncertain of how to make change. Thankfully, there are many ways to heal while also honouring the struggles we walk through. I believe you know what’s best for you, but sometimes it helps to have someone to guide us and walk the path alongside us on our healing journeys.

With a fierce passion for wellness and unwavering commitment to honoring each individual’s place in my practice, I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for you to explore your experiences, become better acquainted with yourself, and find deeper meaning within your story. I aim to build trusting, compassionate channels of communication with you. I have experience working with a diverse range of individuals, from transitioning veterans, burnt-out parents, perinatal clients, the LGBTQ+ and kink communities, and non-monogamous individuals.

Dedicated to lifelong learning, I have honours degrees in Philosophy, Classical Archaeology, Religious Studies and Counselling Psychology (candidate) from Brock, McMaster and Yorkville Universities. I have been in the wellness industry for nearly two decades as a certified nutritionist, mindfulness coach, birthing educator, Thai massage practitioner, yoga instructor and now a qualifying Psychotherapist. As such, I bring a myriad of knowledge, skill, and experience into my practice and work from a biopsychosocial framework, considering your mental health from every direction. With your needs and unique intersectionality in mind, our work together is always collaborative while we discuss your individualized goals for therapy and the best way forward for you. Despite the challenges you face, you have a strong, beautiful, amazing person within you – if you haven’t seen them lately, I would love to be there when you reintroduce yourself.
