About…

Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, anxiety, addiction or depression? Have you recently had an experience or break-up that you are struggling to process or let go of? Is your relationship in need of a check-up? Perhaps you need support around making changes to some aspect of your life and you don’t know who to turn to. There comes a time when help is needed from a professional to cope with life’s ups and downs and ongoing challenges. Therapy allows you to integrate all your experiences; to help make meaning from the difficult ones so you can feel more present and happier in your day to day life.

A little about me:  I am a registered psychotherapist, athlete, HSP (highly sensitive person), biohacker, intersectional feminist, adventurer, and all around humanist. Prior to getting my masters in counselling psychology, I worked as a pharmacist in clinical settings, biotech and sales. I’m also trained as a massage therapist.  I’ve managed teams and projects but my passion lies in working with people one on one or in small group settings. 

I have experience in working with trauma and addiction, relationship and intimacy issues, as well as depression, and anxiety. I support people with workplace stress and burnout and those looking to make big career changes. My practice also includes support and advocacy around the challenges of being neurodiverse in a world made for neurotypicals (i.e. ADHD, ASD, HSP/SPS, SPD). I am poly and kink friendly, and consider myself an ally to the LGBTQI2-S and BIPOC communities. 

I use a holistic approach to psychotherapy. I am formally trained as a relational and psychodynamic therapist.  This framework aims to help people gain insight into the unconscious processes that drive their behaviours and contribute to ongoing issues or patterns. Through this integrated approach, we will not only address what is present in the moment, but what is stored in your body by way of trauma or past hurts that are affecting your day to day life. We will explore past patterns of relating, and use a mindfulness-centered and somatic approach for getting you unstuck, and healthier in each session.
