I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).

I have received various certificates including: Working with the Body and Boundaries in Somatic Experiences: A Polyvagal Perspective, Anger Solutions Train the Trainer, Centre of Excellent: Life Coaching Diploma, Emotionally Focused Therapy Step by Step, Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy and Addictions and Mental Illness-Working with Co-occurring Disorders. Developing my skills as a counsellor is important to me, therefore I remain active in continuing education.

Prior to pursing a career in psychotherapy I worked at Autism Ontario, and in residential homes with individuals diagnosed with neurological and developmental disorders. I have experience as a crisis counsellor and student mentor.

My passion is supporting individuals to generate adaptive and holistic perceptions/actions towards themselves and the world around them. Everyone deserves to encounter self-love and strive for self-fulfillment.

My passion is supporting individuals to find their own authenticity. Exploring how to connect the feeling & thoughts to associated behaviours and choices. This includes facing the hurt, disappointment, fear, and sadness to navigate a new way of living a healthy life. While it can be challenging, this process will allow you to become more connected with yourself and therefore will help you to make choices more fitting to who you are.

It is possible to love yourself, develop self-compassion and find balance.

Sessions are conducted through video or teletherapy (phone) only during this time.


I am remaining to provide counselling & psychotherapy services online.

Virtual therapy comprises the ability to engage in therapy online (though phone or video). Research suggests online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy, for example Andrews et al. (2018) reveal virtual therapy offers alleviation of depression and anxiety symptoms. Connection disruptions and difficulty perceiving body language can happen, however this does not diminish treatment efficacy.

The convenience of engaging in therapy from home saves the commute, allows flexibility and provides services to folks who lack reliable transportation. My online platform maintains confidentiality & privacy regulations and is HIPAA compliant.

My Approach

Psychotherapy is a process aimed at supporting the management of well-being. Everyone universally has encountered hardship and psychological pain to some degree, it comes with being human. Engaging in therapy does not indicate weakness, rather it illustrates bravery. Willingness to strive for change is a big step that I am ready to help you with.

I aspire to create an environment that you are comfortable being yourself in. The outcome of therapy is often linked to the trusting relationship between the client and the therapist. Therefore, feeling safe is important. I encourage you to explore your own journey- therefore I do ask many questions. I will support you to unearth the answers along your path. Everyone has a different route, so I use an integrative approach using various modalities including DBT/CBT, Narrative Therapy, Soothing the Inner Child, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused, Client-Centred Approach and Psychodynamic. I understand one size does not fit all. I tailor my technique to your individual needs.

Allowing the self to normalize and validate feelings. Often many folks entering therapy encounter shame and confusion when experiencing tough feelings (e.g worry, sadness, anger). Therefore, a major aspect is re-learning the relationship with the ‘feelings.’ In many cases, individuals have received hostile responses from others when expressing feelings which in turn has distorted the acceptance of emotions. Together we untangle that pattern, and support accepting and allowing feelings, rather than avoiding and allowing it to define our worth. We navigate the information emotions are trying to tell us, and work on using the feelings to facilitate action in a helpful manner, rather than hurtful (to others and ourselves).

Learning how to notice our beliefs and reveal responses that are more intrinsically aligned to us, rather than who we ‘should be.’ This includes finding the self within to make choices, rather than living vicariously of how others ‘want us to be.’ This process generates self-acceptance and reduces the importance of what people think and say about us. Often, we develop patterns from how to protect ourselves through painful situations and/or relationships. This can include trauma, abuse, bullying, frequent criticism and rejection. Survival strategies can include avoidance, people-pleasing, ruminating, catastrophizing, lack of boundaries and intense self-doubt. However, in the long run, and in healthy contexts these strategies become unhelpful. We will figure out new ways to cope and express the self in a healthy manner.

Rather than internalize the harsh responses from others & harmful environments, we come to notice what is, and is out of our control. This encompasses assessing the limitations of others, environments, and how to express ourselves in a more authentic demeanour that is in our reach.

Therefore, I do use a trauma informed approach & trauma-centred psychotherapy techniques to process those experiences that have formed deep internal wounds that have affected our beliefs and feelings about ourselves & others. It is important to generate an awareness of how those situations impacted us, as it is imperative to care for ourselves, rather than continue living the experience of being treated poorly. A key aspect of this is externalizing the destructive responses we have experienced from our worth and responsibility.

In this process we allow ourselves to learn to be ‘imperfect’ and to honor doing the best we can in our circumstances while acquiring new information along the way. This can sooth the intense feelings of fear, reduce catastrophizing, improve emotional regulation and self-worth. We adjust our thinking patterns to be more compassionate and reasonable based on the situations at hand.

This therapy supports the responsibility to choose to nurture the relationship with the self. No one else can do it for us! We are accountable for our own wellness, and while it is not easy, it can generate long-lasting change. This can include improved confidence, resilience, assertive skills, boundary setting and self-compassion.
