M.Ed., RP(Q)

It takes courage to reach out and to begin the therapeutic journey, and it would be my privilege to accompany you on that journey towards healing. We will work together to establish your unique goals and create a safe place for you to discuss and confront the challenges you are facing. I am committed to helping you reach your goals by providing you with an empathetic, open, and judgement-free space to foster self-compassion and personal growth. Together we will reflect on the patterns that have brought you to seek counselling, build healthy coping mechanisms, and process your story from a place of safety.


I work with individuals who have experienced trauma and sexual abuse, as well as a wide variety of presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, panic, stress, shame, low self-esteem, gender and sexuality issues, interpersonal relationship difficulties, and more.


Every person is unique and has different goals and needs in therapy. I use a variety of trauma-informed approaches including Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Somatic Approach, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy. My therapeutic style is adaptive based on your needs.
