People find me when they are feeling lost, at a crossroads, or want something different in their life. You may be looking for clarity about your life direction and who you truly are or conflicted about big life questions. You may want professional, non-judgemental help as you become clear on your own, unique path and enjoy being empowered with your authentic self.

 

It’s not always easy being open with a new person; from the very beginning, we’ll make sure you feel supported and safe to be yourself in the counselling space. My goal is to hold space for you to feel understood in the way you want to be understood.

 

The direction of therapy specifically gears toward what will help you feel positive and confident in navigating your life and your role in it. Often, our therapy conversations will be about processing trauma or difficult past experiences, reconciling with past identity challenges and becoming clear on who you are and how you want to live. We will often address more than one goal at a time. I can help you with alleviating anxiety, improving mood or processing traumatic experiences, build your coping skills and build your self concept.

 

I completed my Master’s in Counselling Psychology while balancing my personal life, my role as a parent, as well as, my work as a full time professional. I bring my own life experience to the therapy room, for added context from these different life experiences. As a woman of colour, I understand the benefits of connecting with a counsellor of colour and how difficult it can be to find one. I understand the intersectionality that may be present for you and will be happy to support you in it.  

I create spaces for people to explore and acknowledge all aspects of their identity, whether race or gender related or otherwise. Your whole identity is accepted and welcome.

It is important to me that my patients bring their truth to their therapy sessions, feel heard and valued. You will be welcomed with genuine sincerity and respect.
