Whether it be overcoming challenges you are faced with, making meaning out of past events and seeking closure, or wanting to explore how you could continue to be a better version of yourself, I provide a safe, accepting and collaborative environment to help you achieve those goals. I strive to ensure that all my clients feel valued, heard and respected throughout their journey of healing and discovery of hidden strengths. My goal is to empower my clients to reach their full potential and most importantly, help my clients be compassionate to oneself especially during times of hardship.
I use an integrated approach and draw primarily from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, existential and trauma-informed therapies. To cater to the unique needs of each client, I also integrate elements from rational emotive behavioural therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy as needed.
I have previous experience working with concerns related to different forms of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, anger management, perfectionism, burnout, compassion fatigue, self-injurious behaviours, relationship issues and intergenerational trauma.
During our initial session, we will go over what therapy is and how it unfolds. After addressing any questions and concerns you may have, we will establish goals you would like to achieve through therapy. Through our therapeutic journey, we will work to get to the root of your concerns and use that knowledge to help you reach your full potential. As therapy progresses, we will revisit your goals to ensure we are headed in a direction that you are content with.
I live in Whitehorse, Yukon. In addition to working in private practice, I have experience working with marginalized populations through different institutions and organizations (John Howard Society of Whitehorse, Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Whitehorse Correctional Centre etc.).
I hold a Master’s degree from University of Ottawa where I am currently completing my thesis on online self-compassion intervention.
First step in change is acknowledging the need for one. This can be hard when
we have been set in our ways for a long time. However scary it maybe to step into the unknown, the revelations will always lead to a more enriching life.
