I welcome you, and thank you for being here! Let me take a moment to tell you a bit about me and my approachto counselling.

I have always been fascinated by how our inside worlds (thoughts, feelings, beliefs) can impact our outside worlds (careers, friends, family, lifestyle) and vice versa. For years, I worked in the realm of health and wellness, teaching individuals and groups of all ages and intersectionalities about mindfulness, presence and understanding how our internal and external experiences create our overall perception of the world. I came to the counselling field because I love working with and helping individuals (couples and families, too!)

Some of what you may expect when we are working together

  • I understand that coming to therapy can be uncomfortable, and I aim to create as comfortable a space to go through the process as possible. I will check in to ensure we are a good fit and want to offer a space for you to speak openly and honestly.
  • I approach each client curiously, genuinely wanting to understand you and your experiences.
  • I believe humans are wired for survival. So, even what we may find challenging and troubling could have once been a tool we used for survival. We can strengthen our self-perceptions and adopt new tools and coping strategies by introducing understanding, empathy, and compassion.
  • I have been described as easygoing, relaxed and welcoming, with a good sense of humour and an empathetic but direct approach.

Who I work with

I work with individuals
Children (8 years + older)
Couples/Relationships/Partnerships (Monogamous, ENM, Poly)

A little more about me

You may see me in the office with one of my fur children (who often accompanies me wherever
I go!) Otherwise, I often engage in some of my coping tools:
• Mixing introversion and extroversion
• Spending time outdoors in nature and catching up on sports or “bad” TV.
• A lover of ‘sweater weather’ and sneakers

If you’ve made it all the way to the bottom of this page – thank you! After reading (or skimming!) all of this and you think you might like to work together, I invite you to book a free 20-minute consultation where you can get a feel for me and my approach.
