Whether it’s stress from work, pressure from relationships, or hurt from past experiences, we all have things that weigh us down and we need to unpack. My role is to work alongside you to navigate some of the “fog” that life brings, create a safe place for you to process life events, build coping skills, and work towards the inner peace that too often feels elusive. I specialize in working with BIPOC teens and adults navigating life transitions, anxiety, cultural/racial identity, grief and loss, self-esteem, depression, stress and family/relationship conflict.
I believe in and have seen the human ability to adapt and change with the right support. My style is warm, laid-back, with sprinkles of humour and directness as needed. Clinically, I use a holistic approach and together we will explore how your environment, upbringing, and experiences have impacted where you are today. My primary therapy modalities are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and strengths-based therapy.
Holding both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work, I have spent the past 9+ years working in mental health and advocacy, particularly with the BIPOC community. I bring a range of experience and perspective to my practice, having worked in the psychotherapy, non-profit, community advocacy and education spheres. Wherever you are in your journey, know that you don’t have to navigate it alone. I look forward to chatting, and working alongside you in your healing journey!
