In therapy I aim to provide a safe, compassionate, non-judgemental space where you can explore your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours at your own pace. I help clients gain clarity about the challenges they’re facing, find a healthy sense of balance, and learn strategies to cope more effectively. I like to collaboratively approach problems and help you find creative solutions that fit your values.
I obtained my M.Ed in Counselling from the University of Ottawa and I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (#002049).
I strongly believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy. I work from an Integrative lens, meaning that I draw from many different theories and backgrounds to figure out how to best support you and help you achieve the growth and change you are seeking. Some of the theories and approaches I may draw from are: Somatic Experiencing (SE), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology/Strengths-based Therapy, and Mindfulness.
In therapy, we can address any number of issues, but here are some common ones we can discuss: ADHD, anxiety, managing stress, relationship difficulties (whether that’s with a partner, a friend or your family), sexuality and gender, climate anxiety/grief, parenting challenges, setting limits, assertiveness, self-esteem, or trauma.
I’m a parent, a geek at heart, an animal lover, and a bookworm. My practice is trauma-informed, LGBTQIA2S+ allied, gender-affirming, neurodiversity-affirming, as well as sex-positive and polyamory-friendly. All are welcome here and I look forward to getting to know you!
