You may encounter a stressful event or face a challenging period in your life. You may experience low mood, suffer from a lack of motivation, or feel stuck. You may want to talk through past experiences to better understand them and see how they still impact your current life. Being in a state of distress can affect your (mental) health and quality of life. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to explore your questions with you. I have always been fascinated by human relationships and behaviours and people’s unique stories and life experiences. I am dedicated to helping you to create healthy fulfilling relationships and to care for your mental health and wellbeing.

I have a Master of Education in Counselling from Acadia University and over 8 years of experience in the field of counselling. Prior to this, I completed a Master of French in the Netherlands and a Master and Ph.D. in Linguistics in France. I have experience working with people with diverse backgrounds and a wide variety of presenting issues, including depression, anxiety, stress, difficulties in intimate and family relationships, grief and loss, life decisions and transitions, questions around identity, and trauma (such as sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse, childhood neglect). My approach is humanistic, client-centred and collaborative, and I use a trauma-informed lens. I have specialized training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS), and I integrate interventions from various other frameworks. I provide therapy in English and French, as well as Dutch.
