Hi there, I’m a registered psychotherapist with the Collage of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
I understand that life can be challenging and we can easily lose our sense of self along the way and get stuck with the emotions that take us away from the joy of living a meaningful life, and having fulfilled relationships. If you’re struggling with stress and anxiety, depression and sadness, anger, perfectionism, disordered/emotional eating, procrastination, people pleasing, low self-esteem, self-harming, body image issues, fears, infidelity, trauma, relationship challenges, and couple and marriage issues, I can help!
For Online therapy I use a platform which is compliant with the Canadian healthcare privacy laws to ensure your privacy and confidentiality. Online therapy provides all of the same advantages of in-person therapy, while you stay in the comfort of your own home. Research has demonstrated that the outcomes of online therapy are equivalent to that of face-to-face therapy.
In therapy I primarily use mindfulness approaches and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) as an evidence based approach that is a powerful tool that removes guilt, self-judgement and self-criticism by creating an inner environment of understanding and compassion. As you develop self-compassion and find more balance in your life, you will learn to love and trust yourself more fully and find fulfillment in your relationships. Also, as a Polyvagal Therapy Informed Therapist, I work with my clients through a neurophysiological framework to explore why they feel and act the way they do to make sense of their emotions and behaviours from a scientific and physiological standpoint.
In working with couples I use an emotion and attachment focused approach, as well as the world renowned Gottman Method Couples Therapy to help couples rebuild a foundation of trust and safety so they can experience the relationship they’ve been longing for.
I would be honoured to work with you and would be happy to provide you with a free 30 minute initial phone consultation so that you can determine if we’re a good fit. To start, feel free to call me or go to my website for further information or to book an appointment.
