Lao Tzu
At the centre of your being you have the answer, you know who are you are and you know what you want.

Together we will go down the path of mindfulness

My style of therapy is directed by the diverse needs of my clientele as well as my training in cognitive-behavioural therapy, strength based therapy and solution-focused therapy. Strategies that will be used may include role-play, writing and conflict-resolution. I work mostly with adults and young adults who present a range of emotional, behavioural and life transition difficulties.

Rumi
And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?

Let's Connect

The first step to determining if I might be the right therapist for you is for us to have an initial consultation.  I provide a 20-minute phone or in person consultation to determine if my services would be a fit for you. I would love to speak with you so email or call me to set up a time!

Begin Your Journey
