Traditional Talk Therapy

I understand that it can be extremely difficult to open up to a new therapist. As such, my first priority is to create a safe therapeutic relationship where you can feel comfortable, connected, and supported. I am warm, compassionate, and non-judgemental in my work and I check in with you frequently regarding your goals and how you are feeling in our work together.   I am committed to an anti-oppression approach and I will never pathologize you or treat you as a “disorder” or a symptom.  You are a whole and unique person who deserves to be seen and treated as such.

I am here for you to help you to build your confidence in yourself with concrete and evidence-informed approaches to help you to feel better in your life in between our sessions and beyond.

Who I support

I’ve worked with individuals facing a wide range of struggles.

I am particularly interested in working with the following concerns:

  • Anxiety and fear
  • Managing stress and nervous system imbalances
  • Trauma (including PTSD, C-PTSD, developmental trauma)
  • Emotional dysregulation and feeling unsafe with emotions
  • Negative thought patterns
  • Feeling unsafe in your body (including fear of sensations, health anxiety, etc.)
  • Life transitions
  • Relationships and sexuality
  • Chronic pain and illness (including body pain, somatic experiencing of stress, IBS, autoimmune disorders, etc.)
  • Parenting and caregiver stress
  • Self-esteem, self-worth
  • Experiences of identity-based oppression (racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc.)
  • Gender identity and 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming care
  • Spiritual issues

In-person Therapy, Antidote Wellness Lab | West Toronto

In-person talk therapy is offered through Antidote Wellness Lab at 2843 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON, M6P 1Y6 (Dundas West & Keele). Antidote is located in the vibrant Junction community.


I intuitively blend a wide range of talk therapy modalities and approaches according to the needs of each person.  I believe in the importance of customized care and I will work with you using approaches that feel best for you.

Some of my clients benefit from simply having someone safe, gentle and non-judgemental to support them through their pain, stress, or anxiety. Others enjoy having structured sessions and gaining practical support and useable tools for their daily life-or a combination of both structure and compassionate support.  There is no wrong way to be in our sessions together and I am committed to using strategies that support you as a unique person.  I also work collaboratively and always check in with my clients when I offer new tools, directions, or strategies.  You get to choose and I will adapt to respect your needs.

Depending on your preferences, my talk therapy modalities can include a blend of the following:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Mindfulness-Based Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Parts work
  • Coping skills teaching and psychoeducation
  • Compassion-focused
  • Trauma Focused
  • Strengths-Based
  • Anti-oppression
