I provide psychotherapy to adults and couples who are experiencing issues related, but not limited to, anxiety and depression, self-esteem, interpersonal and couple relationship functioning (e.g., divorce/separation, infidelity, intimacy issues, family issues), sexuality, body image concerns, personality disorders, identity issues (e.g., professional, gender, sexual), suicidal ideation or self-harming, trauma and domestic abuse, and workplace and school functioning (e.g., burnout, workplace stress, performance).
Throughout our work together, it is my intention to create a safe and compassionate space for you to share your story. I strive to maintain a collaborative, attuned, and empathic relationship with you, and to work at a pace that feels comfortable to you. My philosophy is that the quality of our therapeutic relationship is at the heart of facilitating therapeutic change. Therefore, in the first few sessions, we will explore and clarify your goals for therapy. Evidence-based, scientific questionnaires will also be administered to inform the course of your treatment and to provide a holistic assessment of your psychological well-being. Throughout the course of therapy, we will periodically assess your progress towards your therapeutic goals and adapt your treatment plan to best suit your needs.
 As an integrative psychotherapist, I will tailor my treatment approach to your unique needs. I draw from various theories of psychological development and evidence-based therapeutic approaches to inform my practice. Psychodynamic approaches are used to understand how your developmental history has shaped your beliefs about yourself and others and your interpersonal functioning. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based approaches (i.e., Dialectical-Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) are used to manage current feelings of distress, promote acceptance and awareness, and guide skillful behavioural changes. Solution-Focused Therapy is used to identify desired changes and develop specific action plans towards future goals. Experiential therapies are used to help you get in contact with and process your emotional and bodily experiences.

For several years, I have provided therapeutic services in different settings and to a variety of populations. I have experience providing long-term psychotherapy and short-term therapy/academic counselling to individuals within university settings. I have also provided therapy services to a variety of clientele across Canada through an Employee Assistance Program. I have extensive training in mindfulness-based approaches and have conducted research on the integration of mindfulness training in the therapeutic context. As well, I have research interests on promoting positive connections in couple relationships and helpful moments of clinical supervision on therapist training. I am an autonomous Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
