About…

(She/her) Do you feel stuck, disempowered, exhausted, or overwhelmed? Do you have a feeling that life could be so much better but you’re not sure how to get there? I’d love to be a part of the journey you are about to set out on. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and healing from trauma. I also take a special interest in working with body acceptance and exploration of body image issues.

I am first and foremost an Art Therapist. Art making is optional, but highly recommended, and no prior experience is needed. I also draw on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). In addition, I recognize how systems of oppression impact individuals and communities as part of my work. However, ultimately, I take an integrative, client-centered approach tailored to your unique personality and life circumstances. Together we can collaborate on an approach that works for you. I believe all people contain innate inner wisdom, and I am simply a guide to help you access this wisdom. I work with teenagers, adults, seniors, and couples. Therapy can be a very vulnerable experience, and I endeavour to provide a warm, mindful, compassionate presence in order to ensure the therapeutic space is a safe container for processing feelings and emotions.

I also work with couples, drawing on the Gottman Method as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy and mindfulness strategies. I see each person individually before we set out on our couples therapy journey together. I believe that with the right amount of intention and work in and out of session, most couples can move towards, or return to, a place of support, love, and joy. I offer an initial 15-minute complimentary online consultation to assess your needs.
