My approach as a psychotherapist is to provide a safe and empathic space where you are able to explore whatever struggles may be preventing you from living a life of authenticity, meaningfulness, and joy.
We can work together to bring awareness to patterns of behavior and to make sense of how past experiences and relationships have impacted your present life. I support your journey by working with you at your own pace and by encouraging self-expression and self-discovery through talk therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Based Therapy, Gestalt, Mindfulness-Based therapy, Trauma Focused, movement, art, creative writing, dreams, voice, breath work and guided visualization.
My interest in psychotherapy began in high school when I took a course in Psychology and instantly became very interested and excited about the subject. This led to taking Psychology as my major in University. I didn’t begin a career in this field until years later, after I had pursued other goals and life experiences. I chose to go to the Ontario Psychotherapy and Counseling Program (accredited by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario), a 5-year in-depth study based on psychodynamic psychotherapy. The school provided a diverse and rich curriculum of theory and practice. In my fifth year I chose as my concentration thesis "The Dysregulation of Fear and Anger as a Result of Childhood Complex Trauma".
