As your therapist i aim to create a place for you to feel comfortable, confident, and empowered. Therapy is a place to talk about anything that you want. To bring fears, worries, daily struggles, wonderings. 

Our sense of self develops through our closest relationships and connections. Relationships affect how we understand and feel about ourselves and each other. Together we’ll begin to make sense of your experiences and allow new perspectives to emerge. Turning towards your inner wisdom and intuition, to gradually feel more connected and grounded within yourself.

Some areas I can assist you with:

  • Anxiety and overwhelming emotions.
  • Life changes and transitions.
  • Relationships.
  • Loss, grief, and loneliness.
  • Identity and self esteem.

Originally from the UK, I began my journey as a therapist in 2014 where i studied Psychotherapy in London UK for two years. I began working in private practice in 2019, training at Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy. I have since completed an additional trauma-informed somatic (body) certificate at the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. I continue to receive ongoing clinical supervision from Faculty at TIRP.
