M.Ed., Registered Psychotherapist, She/Her
I offer therapeutic support to adults (age 18+) looking to deepen self- awareness, identify and transform outdated patterns and heal emotional pain. I work with a range of presenting issues with a particular focus on symptoms related to mood (such as anxiety, depression and Bipolar diagnosis), emotion regulation, stress management, relationship issues, attentional issues, low self-concept, spirituality and parenting issues. My office is conveniently located in Toronto's West end near Ossington subway station. Not currently accepting new clients.
Compassionate, Caring, Collaborative & Client-Centered Psychotherapy
My philosophy of practice is based in the understanding that each individual has access to innate wisdom that supports their personal healing and well-being. My role as a therapist is to guide self-inquiry through the exploration of past and current difficulties and to identify new possibilities that support my clients with accessing vitality, aliveness and authenticity. Applying a caring and compassionate perspective, I draw upon a range of therapeutic modalities to explore lived experience through the body, mind and spiritual domains.
My therapeutic approach is deeply Influenced and enhanced by my training and interest in Yogic Philosophy and Buddhist Psychology. I use a trauma-informed and mindfulness-oriented lens for all therapeutic work and I have completed specific training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), The Hakomi Method and Compassionate Inquiry (Gabor Mate) (see description below). I am passionate about sharing new learning and insights with my clients; our work together is customized to fit the needs and interests of each individual.
Compassionate Inquiry is a somatic-based psychotherapeutic approach that gently uncovers and releases layers of childhood trauma, constriction and suppressed emotion embedded in the body, that are at the root of physical and mental illness and addiction.
