My practice specializes in helping people struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, obsessive behaviours, insomnia and other lifestyle concerns, interpersonal and intimate relationship challenges, and a sense of lack of meaning or purpose in life. I use an integral and person-centered approach, one which considers and values a person in all of their dimensions: mind, body, spirit, heart and culture.
My offering combines depth psychology (psychodynamic, Jungian), contemporary evidence-based modalities (ACT, CBT, EFT), and Eastern and Western wisdom traditions and philosophies (including mindfulness-based psychotherapy).
I am a recent graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies in Integral Counseling Psychology. I value an integral approach in that a holistic, multi-faceted strategy was central to my overcoming my own profound struggles with crippling anxiety and depression in my teens and 20s. I have studied a number of psychotherapeutic modalities, lifestyle interventions and practices, and philosophical traditions which make up my approach to client work. I volunteered for multiple years at the Distress Centre of Toronto and performed my clinical practicum in Santa Barbara at a community clinic, the latter of which acquainted me with the subtleties of the sliding scale model and working with clients for whom psychotherapy is normally out of reach.
