“Everyone experiences suffering and hard times throughout their lifetime. Therapy can provide a safe space to meet someone once a week and to work through those feelings and make sense of it all.

I meet the client where they are and how they are in the world and work with them to equip them to see patterns in their behaviour, their family/friend/relationship dynamics. Listening to the client and offering a gentle, non-judgemental, and friendly space is the core of what I do. Often our bodies remember a lot of our suffering and so I also offer working with the body – this means listening to stress/pain/sensations in the body to make sense of it all. I love working with different people, connecting with clients, and accompanying them on this journey as they heal and make sense of their experiences and connect with their own inner wisdom.
