the process of making someone stronger and more

confident, especially in controlling their life and

claiming their rights

Welcome! I am a Toronto-based Registered Psychotherapist. 

My Approach

As your 

I will be sensitive and curious while we work to understand who you are, what is going on for you, your needs and what you want. I will guide you to acknowledge and understand all of your emotions and needs. Feelings of guilt, shame, confusion and insecurity will be resolved together, as we work to develop more balanced thinking and effective communication skills.

It takes courage to ask for help, thus I see all clients as strong and capable of change, otherwise they would not be in my office (currently virtual office). My commitment is to meet you where you're at and to help you feel safe exploring whatever you're struggling with. I will support you to achieve your goals and to build self-compassion and self-reliance in your daily life.

My Approach

I am committed to making therapy a safe and meaningful experience, developing a relationship with you based on trust and compassion to promote your change. My approach is trauma informed and strength-based.
