    We all face challenges in life and can lose a sense of ourselves. I strive to uncover a person’s authentic self, in allowing them to understand their purpose and bring empowerment and healing. During our meetings, it is important for me to create an alliance with you in a non-judgemental space that fosters trust. I value all parts of a person that are conflicted, afraid, ashamed, and parts that appear relentless.  I use an eclectic approach and take from different evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions that I am trained in to establish an approach based on my clients unique needs, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Motivational Interviewing, , Trauma-Informed Therapy,  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy , Elements of Psychodynamic therapy , and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

    My goal is to bring meaningful connections that will help my clients arrive at a better understanding of themselves. It would be an honour to work with you while we embrace your journey to a healthy perspective and outlook on life!
