As a registered social worker/psychotherapist, I offer mental health support for women as they navigate various life transitions, particularly throughout the perinatal and reproductive years.
Perhaps you’re feeling stuck in your current patterns, finding it hard to manage everyday life. Or maybe you’re trying to decide whether to have children or not, coping with fertility challenges, or facing the unique demands of pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, or early motherhood. Whether you’re navigating past hurts or coping with reproductive health issues and motherhood, I provide personalized support tailored to your unique needs and experiences.
In therapy, I utilize a person-centered approach which means that I will always work to follow your lead in therapy, providing support, guidance, and structure to help you discover personalized solutions within yourself. I incorporate various therapeutic modalities such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) into our sessions. I also incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a complement to talk therapy in order to process and overcome trauma.
I recognize the unique needs of women and using this approach, we’ll find a way for you to show up as the best version of yourself. Whether you’re dealing with stress and anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, or perinatal distress, I will provide a safe and supportive space to explore and process your story. We will work together to better understand yourself and your experiences, identify patterns and behaviours that no longer serve you, and develop new coping strategies to help you navigate difficult situations. With greater self-acceptance, you can lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
