(She/her) MSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist
When we feel stuck in the same patterns, things may feel too difficult to work through on our own. Therapy can provide a new perspective and help to bring joy, connection, and peace to our lives and our relationships.
In couples/relationship therapy I help partners navigate relationship conflict so they feel more connected. Our conversations will provide you with opportunities to identify and shift negative and painful cycles, explore and understand the impact of the past on your current relationship, and find new ways to communicate with your partner. My hope is to provide you with a space where you feel comfortable and supported in exploring new and meaningful ways of communicating with your partner and strengthening your relationship.
In individual therapy I support adults in exploring the ways in which they view themselves and how this may be impacting their connection with others. Our conversations will provide you with opportunities to identify what you might want to be different in your life and your relationships, and what may be getting in the way. My hope is to provide you with a safe and supportive space where you can gain clarity around your concerns and begin to shift your story of yourself and how you experience the world.
My approach is collaborative, trauma-informed, and LGBTQ2SIA+ affirming. I strive to provide open, empathic and non-judgemental support and I welcome couples and individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities. I have specialized training in couples and relationships therapy, and draw from elements of emotionally focused therapy, solutions focused therapy, narrative therapy, and attachment-based therapy. An integrated approach to therapy allows me to meet you where you are at and tailor our work together to best fit your needs.
It is important that I am the right fit for you and your needs. I invite you to schedule a free 15 minute consultation so that we have a chance to connect prior to booking your first appointment.
