I work with people one-on-one in my private practice in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, as they bring their worries, struggles, hurts, and wonderings into the quiet of the therapy space. It is here that we explore what may be overwhelming, scary, and vulnerable to go through alone, so we explore it together. As a therapist, I work in a client-centred way. This means that I meet each client exactly where they are in their path, honouring the goals that they bring, the strengths that they display, and the pace that they are comfortable working at.
Many things bring folks to therapy, including the goal of exploring the inner self, life transitions, struggles with anxiety or depression, challenges in relationships, coping with big emotions, or perhaps past negative experiences that are showing up in the present, calling for healing. It is important to note that since I am an individual therapist in private practice, and not apart of a larger mental health team, I am not able to provide the needed support for individuals experiencing persistent crises.
Each session is catered to the unique needs of each individual, which may include a focus on the traditional talk therapy format, or sometimes words aren't enough, and we lean more towards the expression of the self through the use of art.
I also have the pleasure of offering workshops and groups in the community, as we have so much to learn from one another, and there is immeasurable power in connecting with others who share our struggle.
At this time, I am not accepting new clients and am not holding a waitlist.
