Despite our best efforts, we all feel stuck sometimes and may need some help moving forward. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, abuse, self-esteem, sexuality, relationship conflict, or others. The most meaningful aspect of my job is supporting people as they move beyond their struggles to find hope, empowerment, healing, and freedom.
As a Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families to identify unhelpful patterns in their lives so they can create new connections within themselves and with others. I have a special interest in working in the areas of anxiety- specifically social anxiety and perfectionism, trauma, sexuality and relationship conflict.
I believe the most effective therapy identifies goals and works toward them, even if those goals include just having a place to safely process a difficult issue. I draw on a variety of models based on the unique needs of each client, including Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Focusing. There is tremendous power in having someone by our side as we work toward transformational change and I would be honoured to help you take the first step.
