Life can be challenging and isolating, especially when parts of ourselves do not align with what is expected or deemed normal. My journey towards therapy started when I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that left me searching for compassion, meaning, and community. As a result, I have committed my practice to offering a safe space where people feel heard, supported, and valued.
I hold a Master’s in Health Studies that provided me with a unique perspective of the medical system and power structures that shape how we experience physical and emotional wellbeing. Having a Master’s in Educational Counselling has provided me with the tools to help clients challenge the beliefs that don’t serve them and instead connect with their truth and strength. I meet clients with an integrative approach that draws from Solution-Focused, Narrative, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. These modalities create space for people to make meaningful change, tap into their resilience, and find sustained relief.
I also employ mindfulness and somatic strategies to help clients feel connected to their bodies with more compassion and ease. I am continuously curious about the mind-body connection and a steadfast believer in the transformative power of self-love. You can expect curiosity, compassion, and kindness if you choose to work with me.
