Before dedicating myself to psychotherapy, I worked as a lawyer. Although it was a successful and rewarding career, I felt a deep calling to support individuals and couples on a more personal and transformative level. My own experiences of going through significant life changes, including immigrating to Canada, have given me a unique perspective and understanding of the challenges that arise from such transitions.
Throughout my career, I have gained valuable experience working in various settings, including educational and clinical environments, as well as in private practice. These experiences have allowed me to develop a deep appreciation for the complexity of human experiences and the resilience of the human spirit. I believe that everyone has the capacity for change and growth, and I am dedicated to helping you unlock your inner potential.
In our sessions, I provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore your concerns, process past traumas, and develop strategies to cope with anxiety and relationship difficulties. I draw upon evidence-based approaches such as CBT to help you identify and challenge negative thought patterns, EFT to enhance emotional connections and foster secure relationships, and somatic experiencing to support the integration of mind and body in healing.
I approach therapy from a client-centered perspective, recognizing that you are the expert of your own life. I will listen attentively, validate your experiences, and collaborate with you to develop tailored treatment plans that address your unique needs and goals. Together, we will work towards empowering you to create positive changes, develop healthier coping strategies, and cultivate fulfilling relationships.
I am honored to join you on this transformative journey. If you're ready to embark on a path of healing and personal growth, I invite you to reach out and schedule a session. Remember, you are not alone, and I am here to support you every step of the way.
