For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about helping people to understand themselves better and to improve their lives. We are all human at the end of the day. Life presents us with constant struggles and challenges. The details of the situations we undergo are less significant. How we respond to them is key. In my life’s journey, it is important for me to search for the truth and the deeper meanings behind every circumstance I encounter. This helps me to connect with my own inner wisdom.
In my work, I combine a powerful intuitive ability with a compassionate heart – I believe that both are necessary in order to navigate our way through life. As a Registered Psychotherapist, my role is that of guide and witness. My goal is to assist my clients in their own transformational process, helping them to achieve their full potential, and to let go of patterns of behaviour that no longer serve them.

My approach to psychotherapy is eclectic, holistic and client-centred. Always taking my cues from the client, I assist in holding space for them to discover their truth. All throughout our lives, we are bombarded with endless information and messages about ourselves. At the end of the day, we can become confused about who we are and what we really want. Not only that, but we learn also by what is not communicated. We learn from the actions of others. We observe, and we form opinions about ourselves and about the world around us.
The process of psychotherapy is about beginning to unpack each part of our personal story. We start to make sense of our lives. Through talking, we understand. Through listening, we grow. We become more self-aware individuals, more emotionally-resilient. We find our voice. We speak our truth. We are not the same people who walked into the therapy to begin with. We have begun the process of transformation.
