I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life’s challenges and sometimes we just need a little help getting there. That is where psychotherapy comes into play.
I have been passionate about helping and connecting with others for as long as I can remember. From an early age, I knew that I wanted to expand my knowledge and deepen my curiosity about the helping profession. This led me to obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Ottawa. I became intrigued in human behaviour and what makes us tick. To further learn about the human mind, I completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University. Throughout this process, I noticed the powerful impact that connection, support, and empathy can have towards healing. My passion for this field continued to grow, and I knew that this was where I was meant to be.
I am currently practicing as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), under the supervision of Yoshie Martinez.
I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life’s challenges and sometimes we need a little help getting there. That is where psychotherapy comes into play. My role is to work collaboratively with you, in a safe and non-judgemental environment, to uncover your past experiences, understand the impacts these have had on your life, and equip you with coping skills to navigate difficult experiences going forward.
I work with individuals, couples, and families to assist you in whatever challenges you may be facing. My focus areas include depression, anxiety, addiction, anger, self-harm, relationship difficulties, and trauma. I practice from the person-centered approach to guide you at your own pace and with your best interest at heart. I tailor my approach to meet your needs and incorporate principles from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
I am honoured to have the opportunity to help you and guide you through your therapeutic journey. I look forward to connecting and beginning meaningful work together towards achieving your goals.
