“ I offer a safe, warm, and welcoming space, where you will know that I care about you and I want to help in any way I can. No matter who we are, we all go through struggles. Whether that be with anxiety, depression, or trauma. Or interpersonal issues or our own self-doubt. I will work with to navigate your life, uncover and help you live the life you want to live.”

Are you struggling with life and how it seemingly feels like a constant seeming uphill battle? Are you finding it hard to cope with painful emotions? Are you finding it hard to live life and escape from your own hardships?


I recognize that life can be a real struggle, and it can be hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable. Acknowledging that you are struggling and recognizing you must do something to help change your life is in many ways is the hardest to do. To take a step towards make that change, I offer a non-judgmental space for you to come in and be as open (and authentic) as you need to be. I will walk alongside you and act as a guide with different approaches to help you while we work together to understand your life experience, strengths, and inner resources you have inside.

I am best described as empathic, understanding, a good listener, collaborative, at times humorful, and authentic, in my work with clients. I approach the therapeutic relationship from a deep understanding and appreciation that you are an expert in your own life. Coming in to guide you with your life to try and improve it, to help you feel heard and infuse these into a collaborative treatment plan together!

Here is a brief summary of the issues I specialize in for adults, teens (+12), and couples:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • grief/bereavement/loss
  • anger
  • chronic pain
  • trauma
  • parenting
  • relationships
  • work
  • teen and men issues
  • life transitions, adjustments
  • finding meaning/purpose/existential crisis

I will use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches. Throughout my different approaches, there are three big values for me: acceptance, client-centred, and strength-based. At the end of the day, I am here to help and guide an approach that best fits your specific needs. I want you to walk out of the sessions feeling heard and know why and how we are working together to strive to impact your life positively.

To ensue you feel as comfortable as possible coming into the first session (while also getting to know what you want out of therapy), I offer a free 15 phone consultation. I am currently offering video, and telephone services for individuals and youth. Feel free to reach out me at anytime if you have any more questions about me or my practice.
