Life gives us different challenges to overcome, and no one should have to go through these experiences alone. You deserve to be heard and I am here to support you.

As someone who has attended therapy, I recognize the various emotions you may be feeling as you consider attending therapy. I believe making this courageous decision is an act of self-love. I acknowledge the level of vulnerability you are bringing into the room, and I am committed to holding a safe space for you.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the CRPO, and I am in the process of obtaining my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology Degree. I have obtained my Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and my Advanced Diploma in Child and Youth Care.

My approach to counselling is client-centred, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, culturally sensitive, and strengths-based. During our sessions, I will draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). While people may go through similar challenges in life, each person deals with these difficulties in their own way. Healing will look different for everyone, and my therapeutic approach will be tailored to best suit your needs.

I have primarily worked with survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual violence. Through working with these populations, I gained experience supporting people facing challenges with emotional regulation, substance use, depression, generalized and social anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and suicidal ideation. Working with survivors furthered my understanding of what it means to work from a trauma-informed and anti-oppressive approach.

I have supported people of varying ages, gender identities, sexualities, and cultural backgrounds. I am interested in helping people experiencing challenges with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relational trauma, and general life stressors/transitions.

I aim to empower you to make meaningful changes to your life. I invite you to show up as your authentic self as we navigate your healing journey together.

I am available for both in-person and telehealth services.
