Are you looking to go beyond talk therapy? To address the root of the issue, often times talking just isn't enough. My approach is focused on solutions rather than focusing on managing the symptoms. With a holistic approach to therapy, I acknowledge the connection between the mind and body to be able to work toward finding the underlying emotional and physical causes.
Together, we can explore the many different facets of what you're dealing with to allow you to live the life you want.
I offer a complimentary 15-minute exploratory session over the phone so we can both decide if working together is a good fit. Click here to get started!
How can psychotherapy help? Ask yourself this question: Do you have something you want to change or achieve in your life?
Psychotherapy can help immensely with life transitions (such as marriage, births, deaths, career change, starting your own business), road blocks, and challenges you may be facing everyday like dealing with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and confidence. With the right therapist, it can also provide you with tools to help make changes to create better relationships, get the promotion you've always wanted or find new love. When you become engaged and participate in therapy, there is also intense healing that comes from being heard and being able to express what you're going through to someone who is compassionate to your situation. I offer an impartial perspective with the ability to actively listen and ask the right questions to help you gain the insight you need to get yourself to where you want to be. Together, we can make sense of it all!
My solution-focused approach is to empower you by providing insights, tools, and asking difficult yet thoughtful questions -- driven by compassion, intuition, empathy and curiosity. I offer a blended approach that includes energy psychology, interpersonal, somatic, cognitive behavioural (CBT), and psychodynamic therapy- combined with a holistic understanding that encompasses mind, body and spirit. I am able to help youth and adults reduce anxiety, transition through difficult life stages, find purpose, process grief, re-build esteem and confidence as well as heal old emotional wounds. My natural ability to connect with you and where you are at allows for gentle healing to take place.
It is my belief that the emotional, social, mental, physical and spiritual aspects of each one of you affects how you walk in this world and as a result, it's important for the therapeutic process to involve all dimensions. Furthermore, mindfulness therapy including guided visualizations, meditations, and breathwork is combined with client-centered therapy, where applicable.

With an integrative approach to therapy, my focus lies in addressing both emotional and mental concerns to help heal the cause versus managing symptoms. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, finding purpose, confidence and self-esteem, relationship issues and personal growth/development.
