This has included schools, mental health organizations, physician clinics, and not-for profit agencies. It is an honor and a privilege to build and develop a therapeutic relationship founded on trust, safety and connection. I believe these are essential in supporting a client in their journey of healing, as they navigate the intricacies of this world.
I firmly believe by cultivating self-compassion we can develop an awareness that is true to ourselves allowing our vulnerabilities surface and creating opportunities for sustainable change.
My approach to therapy is fundamentally client centered, creating a collaborative relationship with my clients is a priority as it is a foundation for healing. Utilizing evidence-based modalities, my approach draws from Attachment Theory, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT).
My areas of specialization include children, adolescence, couples and families with a range of concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief/loss, chronic illnesses and trauma. When I’m not practicing I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and traveling the world.
