Areas of Expertise

Depression

A common mental disorder that affects many people. It can bring about extreme sadness and despair that lasts more than days. It can also interfere with daily activities and cause physical symptoms such as weight gain or loss, sleep disruptions and lack of energy. People struggling with depression may find it difficult to concentrate, and have feelings of guilt and worthlessness.

Anxiety

Anxiety can affect your everyday life and can lead to worried thoughts, feelings of tension and physical changes. My hope for therapy for you is to help you manage your emotions and reclaim a sense of calm and control in their lives.

Grief, Loss, Mourning

Grief is an emotion that can affect our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and the way we react to loss is called grief. Through therapy I provide a space where you can express your emotions and feelings. I also help guide individuals through the process of grief, loss, and mourning to find solace and healing.

Relationship Issues

Nurturing healthier connections and guiding individuals through relationship challenges for a happier and more fulfilling life.

About Services

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Taking your first step to seek counselling requires courage. In the words of Brené Brown, “Our stories are not meant for everyone. Hearing them is a privilege,” and this is a privilege that I do not take lightly. I look forward to the opportunity to come along side you wherever you are at on your journey.

About My Approach

My approach to counselling is a strength based, person-centered and holistic and collaborative. I create a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space for clients to share their story and be heard. Throughout my counselling session I support my clients by helping them to draw from their strengths, and develop self-compassion as they engage in the therapeutic process. I draw from various evidence based treatment approach including: Mindfulness, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
