Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
I am a relational therapist with a warm, down-to-earth approach. I value kindness, and have a deep love for emotional education. This includes using skepticism, science, and creativity to help you get why you do what you do, and how you can take on life’s challenges. Together, we can build a better intellectual understanding alongside greater emotional awareness and skills.
I encourage you to bring your vulnerability, your power, and everything in-between. With support and gentle challenge, I will work with you to discover (or recover) your natural courage towards living a rich and full life. As your therapist, that means meeting self-judgement with compassionate curiosity, supporting you through anxiety, and helping you see the strengths you already possess.
I have extensive experience working with mental health issues including self-doubt, anxiety, depression, bipolar, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, and the impacts of sexual violence, childhood abuse and developmental trauma.
I am committed to do my best to create a safe, inclusive space including those who identify as LGBTQI+, and members of the polyamorous, BDSM and other alternative communities. I have completed the five year training program with Gestalt Institute of Toronto as well as Somatic Experiencing Level One. My approach is relational, humanistic, and trauma-informed.
