About…

I am perpetually inspired by the resilience, strength, and beauty of the human mind, body, and spirit.

As a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I take an eclectic and holistic approach to therapy. Each person who courageously seeks the support and expertise of a therapist is unique and I believe their therapeutic experience must reflect this. Our approach may include leaning into your strengths, learning new supportive strategies, replacing coping mechanisms that no longer serve you, re-authoring the stories we tell ourselves, or focusing on solution-based behaviours. Through collaboration, we will create and enact an individualized approach that centers your experiences, goals, needs, and style preferences. While the therapeutic experience will be highly personalized, I’d be remiss to not mention I am committed to ensuring all clients’ experience unrelenting compassion and nonjudgment throughout our sessions.

For over twenty years, I have had the privilege of being a movement coach and speaker working alongside people as they strive towards their goals, steer through challenging times, and continuously build upon their holistic wellness. Therapy, like coaching, is about meeting clients where they are and supporting growth towards where they want to be.

While centering each client and their uniqueness is essential to effective therapy, the relationship between client and therapist is equally impactful. Establishing a “good fit” between a client and their therapist is pertinent for effective and ethical therapy. Finding the right therapeutic fit for this chapter of your life can be difficult from pouring over professional biographies online – I get it. If you’re interested in potentially working together, I invite you to book a complementary 15 minute consultation. I’m happy to discuss any questions you have about what it would be like to work together.
