Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist
Sometimes life hurts and we are uncertain how to move forward. Trauma, grief, life transitions, difficult relationships, and past experiences often leave us searching for healing and hope. We don’t want to do this work alone, and yet we don’t always know where to turn.
In the therapeutic relationship you will be heard and seen. In my practice I use a holistic, person-centred
approach where together we will build a
respectful relationship that allows you to gain new skills, acquire knowledge that helps bring about change and work toward your personal goals. We may talk about difficult things, and in doing so you will
experience an empathetic, supportive, and competent therapist who will feel privileged to take this journey with you.
In therapy it is my goal for you to find a safe space where you can discover greater self-awareness, self acceptance, and deeper insight into what may lead to live-giving change.

More than just my work:
While formal education has helped guide me, my greatest learning comes from being in relationship with others. It’s never easy, but it is always worth the investment. As mother, partner, friend, and the person you chat with in line at the grocery store, I value what I learn from each interaction and always appreciate a good laugh. The image of light is one that I find powerful, as in light I find hope and:
“Once you choose hope, anything is possible.”
