Psychotherapy

Do you feel overwhelmed? Are you constantly worrying about what you have to do next? Are you having difficulties believing in yourself? Do you feel like you are stuck in life? Or perhaps you're down or anxious. Maybe, you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. I have found that these are common concerns that clients experience before accessing psychotherapy.

  

Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. In your sessions, I promote emotional, cognitive, and behavioral transformation by encouraging a strength-based outlook and the adoption of new attitudes, understanding, and coping mechanisms.

About  Me

After healing comes integration.

My interest in psychotherapy began while working as a Physiotherapist Assistant. Within that position, I recognized how much an individual’s mental health impacts their physical health and overall well-being. Since then, I have accumulated over six years of experience working with individuals who have experienced anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem concerns, identity concerns, interpersonal conflict, trauma, and more. I have always been interested in the process of recovery and integration. I believe that everyone has the ability to expand their well-being, and I am here to support you along the way.

YOUR VISIT

Personalized Attention For Your Mental Health

Seeing a therapist for the first time can be very overwhelming. This is okay and quite normal for a first visit. 
The initial appointment is all about getting to know you and your concerns. I'll be gathering information to better understand what brings you into therapy and how I can best support you. No two clients are the same; getting to know you and building a relationship is crucial and will be an ongoing process. This foundation will make for a smoother transition when we get deeper into what brought you to therapy. Nonetheless, I encourage clients to share what they choose to and feel comfortable with. 
Follow ups are usually a continuation from the previous session and if homework was given, we check-in about the progress of the task. However, this is a flexible structure as there are many things that can up in life and change the flow of sessions. 
Ultimately, this is your session - you choose how you would like it to go and I will meet you where you are at and follow your pace.

Modalities

I primarily work with Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and incorporate a Trauma-Informed approach, and an Anti-Oppressive/ strength-based approach through a culturally sensitive lens. As a trauma-informed yoga clinician, I also incorporate mindfulness techniques into my practice.

 
I believe it is vital to gain a holistic picture of my client, to be able to meet them where they are at in their life and appropriately and effectively assist them on their healing journey. 

 
My goal is to work with clients to explore the root of their concerns and support them in developing a plan to overcome the challenges they experience.

I will work with you, at your own pace, to increase your awareness and agency. I believe that the psychotherapy journey begins with being heard, seen, understood, and accepted. From here, self-growth, self-acceptance, and self-awareness are inevitable.
