Are you feeling trapped by your anxious or obsessive thoughts? Do you feel like your life has been consumed by your negative self-talk? As if these thoughts are intruding on your relationships? This cycle of shame and emotional pain that results from these patterns is exhausting and it is one that I know. You are not your thoughts, and together we can work to disrupt the vicious cycle that is robbing you of enjoying your life. I am deeply committed to providing a non-judgmental space while integrating person-centred and compassion-focused care.

My areas of specific focus are those involving mood disorders, relationship issues, emotional dysregulation, disordered eating, and negative body image. My approach draws on various modalities, mainly Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (SFT).

I strive to be a safe place and welcome each unique client into that space with me. I will meet you where you are and move at your pace to uncover the compassion that you contain for yourself and heal interpersonal relationships. I welcome a 15-minute phone consultation to see whether I would be a good fit for you on this healing journey.
