Psychology Today Profile
I provide counselling to individuals who are experiencing emotional distress due to, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, grief, and self-doubt. I also support individuals in coping with stressful life events such as challenges at work, school, and relationship issues.
I draw upon various approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.
At this time, I provide solely video counselling. My goal is to provide an accepting space for clients to share what is weighing them down without fear of judgment. Together we can explore the issues that bring you to therapy, and develop a plan that draws on your strengths along with tools for coping.

What would you like to be different in your life?
I work with individuals who have experienced trauma and abuse in their lives. The invalidation of abuse can be far-reaching, it can impact your sense of well-being and your ability to connect with others in meaningful ways.
As an experienced psychotherapist many of the people I work with have come through difficult circumstances. I provide individual psychodynamic counselling. I blend Narrative Therapy with Cognitive Behavioural Skill building to support you as you move through your therapeutic process.
My background includes working with self identified women who have experienced sexual abuse, and sexual assault, intimate partner violence, emotional dysregulation, post traumatic stress, and dissociative disorders.
Please be aware, I am available on-line only because I am outside of the Toronto Area.
$ 65 Sliding Scale (spots available), and a flat rate of $100 for 60 minute sessions.

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
BSc (Psych), MACP
I provide individual therapy both in person and online to adults and teens struggling with difficult emotions such as anxiety, depression, and stress. These difficult feelings may come up with regards to work, school, a big life transition, in social situations, or there may be no clear cause. Through my work as a therapist, I have found that no matter what the cause, there is an overarching theme when we struggle and suffer. Namely that our difficult thoughts and feelings can lead us to behave unlike the person we truly wish to be.
The main therapeutic approaches I use in my practice are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindful Self-Compassion. ACT teaches you skills to help ‘unhook’ yourself from difficult thoughts and feelings so that they do not have as much impact and influence over your behaviour. ACT has received empirical support for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and stress.
Quite often, when we suffer we are very quick to beat ourselves up, however if someone we loved was going through something similar we rush to provide emotional support. This is where self-compassion comes in. Research has shown that self-compassion is something that can be learned, and can increase resilience in the face of stress, leading to fewer negative emotions such as shame, depression, and anxiety in the long term.
I know taking the first steps to see a therapist can be anxiety provoking in itself. I would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Please feel free to reach out through email. I offer a free 20 min phone consultation to help you decide whether or not my approach is a good fit for your concerns.
