As many others, I hold many roles – I am a sister, daughter, aunt, niece, friend, and partner. I am also a researcher by day, therapist by night, and full-time advocate of mental health. In my down time, I tend to my own mental health by journaling, drawing, doing origami, going for long walks in nature (or just sitting under a tree in silence), and spending lots of time with family and friends. Having previously worked as an early childhood educator assistant at a daycare, working with children from 5 months to 5 years old (still miss those kiddos!), I value creativity, curiosity, and authenticity.

About me as an Individual Therapist…

Life is a winding road with many twists and turns. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide which path to walk down, to explore the path less taken, or to muster up the courage to take the path we know is best for us. I understand my role as a gentle guide – someone to walk alongside you as you explore these paths and winding roads. I believe that people are the expert of their lives, and it is my role to help people get curious about themselves by offering a non-judgemental, authentic, and warm space.

About me as a Couple Therapist and Family Therapist…

I believe that we do not exist in a bubble, we exist in relation to one another. We all want to feel heard and accepted, which can sometimes be hard to achieve. I understand my role as a gentle guide, helping couples and families explore their strengths, patterns of interaction, and possibilities for their relationship. I see couples and families as the the expert of their relationships and lives, and it is my role to create a non-judgemental space for them to get curious about themselves, each other and the relationship.
