Life presents us with many challenges; challenges that sometimes make us forget how naturally resilient we are. We may get stuck, confused, and even overwhelmed, not sure what to do next. I want to commend you for taking the important first step of reaching out for support. I know that beginning a therapeutic journey isn’t easy – it takes a lot of courage and strength to be vulnerable with someone. So, take a moment to be proud of yourself and thank yourself for getting this far.  

I believe therapy is a collaborative process where you’re the guide. After all, I’m not the expert on your life – you are. I’m simply here to help you along the way and provide support in an empathic, compassionate, and nonjudgmental manner. We’ll work together to help you reach your goals, navigate any challenges that you’re facing, and achieve real personal growth.  

A little bit more about me: I’m currently a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), registered with the CRPO, and am in the process of completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto and received my Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Biology, and Sociology. I offer an integrative approach that’s tailored to your specific needs. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, as every individual has their own unique experiences that shape who they are. Within my approach, I use components from different modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) and mindfulness-based interventions, all within a strengths-based framework.  

I strive to foster a positive therapeutic relationship by creating a warm, welcoming, and safe environment where I hope you will feel comfortable enough to share any thoughts and feelings that you may be experiencing. By building on your existing skills and strengths and incorporating new strategies we will work together to achieve your goals and better your well-being.  

If you’re interested in beginning your therapeutic journey, I’m here to help you through this process and would be honoured to walk alongside you. 

I offer both in-person and telehealth services.
