Do you struggle with anxiety, panic, or overwhelm? Does the stress of your day make it difficult to regulate your emotions? Are you looking for a way to feel less helpless, and more in control? Anxiety and emotions are a reflection of the state of our nervous system, so when we learn how to influence our nervous system, we directly impact our emotional state (including experiences of anxiety, stress, pain, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, brain fog, disrupted sleep, and many other conditions). This is where I can help.

I use a combination of relational talk therapy and breath regulation techniques to help you both understand your emotions, and manage them. We cannot change what we’re not aware of, so the first step is talking about it. Then, together we customize strategies to address your specific goals, including stress reduction, anxiety management, and other challenges.

I offer a FREE 45 minute consultation which includes a breath physiology assessment (optional) – this helps us determine how much of your anxiety/stress is related to the state of your nervous system and/or your body’s chemistry. We will also talk about your unique background, circumstance, goals and needs. If you’re not sure if this is for you, I welcome all enquiries!

I am a Registered Psychotherapist, Licensed Counselling Therapist, and Certified Functional & Therapeutic Breathwork Practitioner.  I completed my training at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy and Breath Body Therapy. Some of the common issues I work with include anxiety, depression, grief, addiction, and the impact of stress on the body. I practice from a trauma-informed lens, drawing on  attachment theory, polyvagal theory and somatic based approaches such as breath work, parts work, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and mindfulness based practices.
