About My Clients

Many of my clients are young adults asking the "who am I" questions. They’ve come to me to explore and discover themselves, perhaps for the first time or perhaps as part of a lifelong process. Whether a relationship, a loss or trauma, feeling overwhelmed, lonely, sad, or stuck, being in transition or facing a change, first sent them to me, what they all have in common is a desire to feel more authentic, more connected and more at ease, and to live life with more joy, passion and purpose.

My Background and Approach

My approach is relational, collaborative, strength-based, and interactive. Whether we are doing traditional talk therapy or incorporating meditation, breath, or body-focused explorations, our work together is always a co-created unfolding of personal expression & discovery. With over 25 years of experience, my training is extensive, with two masters (one in Social Work and one in Dance-Movement Therapy) and postgraduate training in multiple evidence-based psychotherapies, mindfulness, psychodrama, trauma and addiction therapies, and advanced certifications as a yoga teacher and yoga therapist. Non-judgemental, playful, and down-to-earth, all are welcome with humility, sensitivity and allyship. I have been honored to witness great transformation, growth and healing in my clients over the years and I look forward to being a part of your journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I hold as my life's dedication a desire to inspire health, consciousness, and creative living. My core values of collaboration, connection and compassion guide me. My primary goal is to form genuine connections with each of my clients, and for them to feel seen, heard, accepted, and respected. An inclusive, affirming, and welcoming to all environment is step one.
