Challenges are inevitable, and needing another’s support is human. In therapy, ways can be found to cope and move forward. Your emotional depths, behavioral patterns and relationship to self and others are explored compassionately. During this work, your developing self-awareness both heals and fosters growth in a safe, non-judgmental space. We work to understand your uniqueness and co-create the lasting change you seek.
Therapy Approaches: Psychodynamic, Client Centered, Relational & Intersubjective.
Completing an M.B.A. and working internationally in the corporate sector for almost twelve years exposed me to varied countries and cultures. During this time, contact with very diverse individuals enhanced my natural capacity to be open and flexible. Despite this benefit, I didn’t feel like I belonged in the corporate world. Faced with trying to find my professional place and struggling with anxious and depressive feelings; I started with therapy and found my calling in therapeutic world as a psychotherapist. The lasting change in me resulted from knowing my innermost feelings and unconscious via psychodynamic psychotherapy. I thus trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (CTP), Toronto, wanting to help others similarly.
I am also experienced in using CBT, mindfulness techniques and meditation in my therapeutic work, studied during my Psychology BSc. Mindfulness and meditation can help you stay in the present moment and prevent you from staying stuck in a cycle of vicious thoughts specially during anxiety and depression.
Your aspirations, strengths, and challenges form the basis of your therapy. I tend to be relational and interactive in sessions, which helps me connect to you authentically. An anti-oppressive stance informs my work, emphasizing the awareness and respect of differences and diversity. I consider ways my therapeutic approach can be modified to suit your uniqueness.
We explore through dialogue; I see you as the expert on your life and myself as the facilitator. I listen to you with compassionate curiosity and my unconscious, so you feel less alone and feel heard and seen in a new way. All this helps you to begin to know aspects of yourself you may be blindsided by. Our collaboration finds ways so you can cope, move forward and grow. I value your feedback about our work and me in sessions as this guides me to support your growth appropriately.
