The healing process begins the moment we take the first step. Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are - Rachel Naomi Remen
Everyone has unique lived experiences which impact how one views themselves and the world around them. Regardless of your experiences and what you may be going through, I aim to create a safe and non-judgemental space for you to share your life story and work collaboratively to discover or rediscover your values and meaning in life. As a Registered Psychotherapist (Q), one of my key passions is to help people discover their inner strengths and foster positive growth. I help clients struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief, trauma-related concerns or coping with various life and role transitions
I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling and Spirituality from Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa. I believe in lifelong professional development and stay up to date on current & effective treatment approaches tailored to individual clients. I am a Member of the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I provide clinical services to individuals (adolescents and adults).
I believe that self-awareness and acceptance are key to healing and can be integrated by enhancing mindfulness, somatic experiencing, emotion regulation and self-compassion. I draw from integrative therapeutic techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindful Self-Compassion, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. My approach to therapy is compassionate and culturally sensitive and I strive to encourage a supportive environment to reach a place of healing and growth.
Taking the first step to reaching out can be difficult so I first want to thank you for taking this step and beginning this journey towards healing. I hope to support you and make this process as easy as I can. Don’t hesitate to contact me for a free consultation.
