I view respect, curiosity, and compassion as the pillars to reconnecting with one’s sense of self through exploration of emotional, psychological, relational, and physiological distress. Each of us is made up of many different parts, all of which exist for a reason. By bringing awareness and understanding to wounded and struggling parts of self, we can learn what they need to heal. My approach is client centred, trauma informed, and strengths based. My core values are being an ally and working from an anti-oppressive framework.
I believe strongly in the creation of a safe, compassionate therapeutic space to help clients access emotions and safely examine parts of self that are causing pain, challenges, and difficulty.
Therapy will focus on exploring emotions, accessing inner resources, creating strategies, and developing tools in support of healing and growth. Any topic can be discussed in therapy, no matter how big or small.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I completed my Master of Education in Counselling Psychology at the University of Toronto.
If you are interested in learning more about me, I welcome you to book a free consult. In our consult we can talk a little about what brings you to therapy, see if we are a good fit to work together, as well as go over some administrative details such as scheduling and fees.
