Working on myself inspired me to help others thrive, achieve their goals, and live a soul-aligned life. You will leave feeling seen, heard, and supported. I treat a variety of issues and tailor each session to your needs. A slow and steady approach to integrate your experiences will create the best long-term results.
I am an intuitive, emotionally sensitive, empathetic, and spiritual woman. I was born with a hearing impairment and wear a hearing aid. As a child, sharing these sides of myself with others did not feel safe and were not celebrated as true strengths. I hid integral parts of my identity to fit in but felt a deep sense of loneliness within as I got older.
To fill the inner void, I overloaded my schedule, did what others wanted me to do, and hid my true feelings; a toxic combination that led to burnout. I began therapy and learned that symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, and digestive issues were messengers that I was struggling to cope.
In therapy I dealt with unexpressed grief and anger by talking about reconstructive ear surgeries, my parents’ divorce, deaths of loved family members, and a pregnancy loss. Therapy taught me speak up for myself and develop confidence to make decisions that were best for me. One hour at a time, I began to love and accept the parts of myself I once disowned.
I learned how to speak up with confidence, use exercises to regulate my nervous system, figure out my needs and wants, express feelings to myself and others, and care for my younger selves that had been hurt. I use these skills to face challenges in my life and would be honoured to work with you to create meaningful change in your life.
I invite you to slow down to have the time and space to bring up and express your feelings, release trauma from your body, connect with your younger selves, build self-acceptance, resolve core issues, and create satisfying relationships. I am excited to see you move forward and create change.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto, and a Spiritual Psychotherapy diploma from the Transformational Arts College. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
