In my therapy practice, I use an integrative approach that is trauma-informed and combines eclectic counselling and psychotherapy strategies to help you reach your personal goals. I can help you utilize your strengths and experiences while at the same time, provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address personal life challenges and long-standing unhealthy patterns. My therapy style is highly tailored and personalized to each client.
I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, grief, body image, disordered eating, self-esteem, addiction and career-related issues. In addition to working with individuals, I specialize in working with couples and families in helping them improve their communication and develop an understanding of the patterns that reinforce reoccurring issues.
The benefits of working together can allow you to overcome your unique challenges and help you improve your self-confidence and develop lasting relationships.
With compassion and understanding, I look forward to joining you in helping you build on your personal strengths and improve your quality of life.
