I am passionate about helping people connect to their purpose and power.
 
My approach to therapy is through a holistic lens; believing as the saying goes, 'the whole is greater than the sum of its parts'. People are complex beings and the way in which our bodies and minds are connected is similar to a network of intertwining webs communicating with one another. When factors like nutrition, personal purpose and beliefs, sleep, physical exercise and social connections are considered, any combination of these can make a huge difference when designing a treatment plan.

What has become clearer to me over the years is that we all have the ability to make changes in our lives - to move us in the direction we wish to go - but sometimes it can be difficult to know what steps we need to take to get there. To create change, one must be committed to doing the work, which includes being open to the possibility of shifting their mindset, like looking into a kaleidoscope. The first look into a kaleidoscope shows an intricate layer of shapes and colours and with just one twist of the mechanism, a whole new picture is created, bringing with it the prospect of new possibilities.
 
Each person is the expert of their own life. My job is to create a safe, non-judgemental space, ask meaningful questions, collect and organize information and work closely with my clients to create their treatment journey and help them reach their goals.
