I believe that recovery and healing is a personal process that individuals go through in order to gain more possibility, control, meaning and purpose in their lives.

Therapist Profile

I offer psychotherapy services that harness the creative process to engage individuals to better understand their emotions, thoughts and behaviours. I believe the individual is the expert on their own life, experiences and care. By providing a non-judgemental and supportive space, the client is able to safely explore the issues that are most important to them. In collaboration with the client, I assist to develop a person-centered treatment plan that helps to evaluate outcomes and their impact on treatment goals. Approaches I use include cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness-based techniques and coping strategies.

I encourage curiosity and self-compassion in a client’s self-discovery journey. I believe that recovery and healing is a personal process that individuals go through in order to gain more possibility, control, meaning and purpose in their lives. I honour the therapeutic relationship with flexibility and sensitivity realizing that clients come into therapy with a variety of symptoms, experiences, and expectations.

I work with all age groups from children to seniors. I specialize in working with children and adults with developmental disabilities. I also work with children and adults with anxiety and mood disorders.
