Family Therapy

Family therapy can have powerful and long-lasting impacts on mental health because it works to renew and mend attachment bonds.

I am a warm, calm, and nonjudgmental therapist, who enjoys making meaningful relationships with my clients that are honest, authentic, empathetic, and positive for my clients. I bring 30 years of experience working with children, teens, families and couples. As an experienced psychotherapist, you can expect the necessary wisdom to navigate complex family situations. My therapeutic approach is collaborative, relaxed, and validating, so sessions resemble a conversation and not a traditional doctor/patient visit.

I firmly believe that a nonjudgmental relationship is where and how the healing begins and therapeutic results are delivered. My goal is to help you heal and learn how to cope with your thoughts and emotions.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, relaxed, and validating, so sessions resemble a conversation, not a traditional doctor/patient visit.

Therapy modalities I often use include CBT, DBT, EFT, Solution focused, Mindfulness, Narrative, Psychoanalysis and Skill development.

Areas of Practice: I focus on families and individuals dealing with mental health issues or going through life transitions such as couples therapy, separation, divorce, court proceedings, parenting difference, high-stress situations, and grief.

I look forward to connecting with you.

Therapy can be hard! And awkward. And vulnerable. It’s crucial that you feel seen, safe, and respected by your therapist and I’m here to bring in some levity and play to help us do the hard work. It’s important to me that you feel like an active participant and collaborator in the therapy process. Human beings are made up of all types of different stories; stories we tell others, stories we tell ourselves, some stories that are handed to us by the world without any of our say at all! Together, we can explore and learn more about the stories that make up your life and maybe write new ones!

I want to build an authentic relationship on transparency, humour, compassion and curiosity. We’ll look at your goals, make space for difficult emotions, and explore different strategies to help bring you to a place that feels more in line with you – at whatever pace is right for you.

I’m experienced working with survivors of sexual violence, anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-worth, diet culture, and other various mental health concerns. Wherever you are in your healing or hurting, I’d be honoured to meet you. Reach out for a free consultation today!

Does it feel like you are running on empty? Do you often worry about worst-case scenarios? Do you tend to put the needs of others before yours? Perhaps you have a hard time deciphering what your needs are and just do not pay these much attention? Do you swing like a pendulum from working hard to avoidance and procrastination? Do you feel like things are catching up with you? If so then you are in the right place. I help people regain their inner balance and find clarity, confidence and ease.

Together we will explore your thoughts and get to the bottom of self-talk, thoughts, and coping mechanisms that are no longer serving you.

I help people from various cultural backgrounds who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, angry or irritable and who have a hard time trusting themselves, identifying their needs, and expressing their boundaries. This may manifest as indecisiveness, anxiety, relational difficulties, a sense of feeling drained and over extended, a lack of contentment, or shutdown. You may feel compelled to achieve or people please in order to feel a sense of self-worth and safety. You have an inclination that continuing on like this is not sustainable, and that you want more out of life.

I use my knowledge and experience to tailor an approach to therapy based on your specific and unique life story, strengths and goals. Collaboration, compassion, a non-judgemental stance and cultural sensitivity are all cornerstones of how I do therapy. I appreciate the mind-body connection and use a biopsychosocial approach. You deserve a meaningful and peaceful life.

If you are having trouble managing your emotions and maintaining healthy relationships, or moving on from a past experience, then I want to offer you some extra support. The past years have been especially taxing for all of us, leaving many of us feeling stalled in our previous trajectories, and perhaps struggling to navigate the financial, emotional, and mental challenges that have emerged. This can make it feel like reaching your potential is less achievable. I use a culturally sensitive, collaborative, and client-centered approach to therapy that seeks to establish an environment of stability, trust, safety, and non-judgement.

My focus will be to assist you in nurturing your strengths so that you are better able to take charge of the areas of your life that feel challenging. Alongside skills-building, there will be a space to identify your blind spots, or areas of growth. Everyone’s path to realizing their potential is unique to them, so your therapy journey will be unique too.

While no one questions a physical ailment that is addressed when it persists to cause injury, mental health challenges that are similarly debilitating, are less often prioritized, and addressed in primary care. Many may suppress and hide their struggle to function. The only way out is through.

Are you and your partner stuck in an unhealthy cycle of miscommunication that you just can’t seem to shake? Does it feel like you are constantly fighting even over the simplest thing? Are you filled with resentment? Do you feel like you are never good enough? It’s okay not to have all the answers and often we can only access our own answers in the presence of a safe, uninvolved other. I offer a safe space for you and your partner to explore your issues in the presence of someone who is rooting for your relationship and in your corner. This makes all the difference when it comes to feeling empowered to explore yourself and your difficulties and having the courage to experience your feelings. As a person of colour, I know how it feels to navigate two cultures and generational differences that can leave you feeling torn and disillusioned, and maybe gaslit when it comes to mental health. Seeking help and prioritizing your wellbeing is a sign of courage, not weakness. Reaching out is the hardest part but you have already made it this far! Let’s work together to figure this out, and build acceptance, self-compassion and confidence.
