Healing is a journey that should be nurturing, safe, and empowering. Oftentimes, you may feel helpless, hopeless, and stuck in a place that you cannot escape from. With all the unmanageable emotions, fears, and thoughts that play in your mind over and over, it may seem as though there is no end and no relief. Therapy will allow you to navigate, understand and provide clarity that leads to peace of mind and optimal living. I believe in a client-centered, partnership, and holistic approach to healing, utilizing and maximizing your strengths, and using that to attain treatment goals. I specialize in children, youth, individual, family, and couples therapy. Working together as a team, we will focus on you the client, in healing the mind, body, and soul. Asking for help is not easy. However, I’m glad you are here! It takes courage, vulnerability, and strength; all needed for a successful therapeutic journey. Book a connection session today! During this call, we will get to know each other and figure out if we are a good fit before moving forward. Let’s take this healing journey together.

As a holistic Social Worker, I place a strong emphasis on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions of health and wellness. I work within an inclusive, trauma-informed, anti-racist, anti-oppressive framework that incorporates principles of intersectionality. Moreover, I practice from a culturally relevant, client-centred, strength-based, non-judgemental, collaborative approach. With compassion, honesty, warmth, and presence, I hope to hold space for clients to use their innate curiosity and introspection to address the root causes of their challenges, strengthen relationships, and build meaningful social connections. I incorporate elements of various therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Attachment-focused Psychotherapy, Trauma Therapy, and Mindfulness. I include trauma-informed principles into practice, that also considers the impacts of complex trauma, racial trauma, intergenerational and multigenerational trauma on individuals and communities, particularly Black and Indigenous communities.

A client once shared a quote by Ram Dass that resonated with me: “We’re all just walking each other home.” Every time I “walk a client home,” I feel honoured. I believe that everyone is born with an immense amount of strength, but it can be hard to see your strength when you are going through a hard time. My work as a psychologist is built on the foundation of a trusting relationship, a non-judgmental space, and the positive regard I offer to my clients. I work collaboratively with my clients, supporting them in acknowledging and embracing their strengths and moving gently towards change. My passion for helping others has made my counselling journey an exciting one. For me, helping is about meeting my clients where they are and creating a safe space that allows for vulnerability. My work provides opportunities for people to express their feelings, thoughts, and worries, and in return, I offer kindness and expertise. Together with my clients, I assess their readiness for change and provide the help necessary to make decisions and take action. My therapeutic lens is strengths-based and compassionate; I appreciate and attune to individuals’ diversity, culture, and experiences. I am passionate about working with individuals and couples from minority backgrounds, but regardless of your skin colour, gender, culture, or religious background, you are welcome in my counselling space. In addition to my own life experience, my professional experience, both in Canada and abroad, helps to foster a deep understanding of the challenges faced by diverse populations. My focus on the intersectionality of the multiple identities of my clients fosters a safe therapeutic environment, particularly for those with experiences of oppression.

Our lives and all the intersecting parts can be too much to bear at times. Carrying around trauma, negative self-talk and heavy emotions is exhausting and impacts the mind and body.

I am a Registered Social Worker and have over 18 years of experience working with individuals with complex mental health and addiction issues. Working with clients from diverse backgrounds, I provide professional and confidential counselling to address a number of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress management, life transitions, coping skills, self harming behaviours, communication skills and relationship issues. I believe in treating the whole person and tailor treatment to meet each individual’s personal needs and treatment goals. I work from an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed perspective and am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Solution- Focused Brief Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Trauma-Informed treatment and Gottman Method of Couples therapy. I would be honored for you to share your story with me. Together, we can explore, unpack and work through new and old issues and challenges, locate yourself in your daily situations, reflect and influence positive change in your life.
