Navigating loss, feeling anxious or frustrated with life, or difficulties in relationships can leave us feeling overwhelmed and unsure what to do. For most of us, we’re not familiar with how to deal with hard feelings. So we adapt as best we can, and develop strategies to cope. Sometimes these strategies begin to interfere with our lives, and may even make us feel worse.

The good news is, therapy can help you with this.

By being curious about your experiences, and listening intently, we can begin to learn what your needs are and find supportive ways to deal with the hard stuff, and move you towards feeling better & less alone.

I offer relational, psychodynamic, somatic informed psychotherapy.

Some examples of areas and groups I work with include: 2SLGBTQ l Caregivers l Students l Newcomers to Canada. Anxiety l Depression l Developmental Trauma l Exploring Identity l Grief and Loss l Life Transitions l Relationship Challenges l Shame and Self-esteem 

If you’re seeking support for something else that’s not listed above, that’s okay. I welcome an email so we can talk more.

You may already know what you need help with, or you may be confused, unsure and struggling to put your experience into words. Every person’s journey looks different. I welcome everyone equally. 

Are you ready to have a chat about whether or not we could be right for each other?

The best way to reach me is via email, and you can find more information on my website
