Do you often feel burnt out? Lacking motivation related to school or work? Feeling as though your friends are moving through their lives at a different pace? Do you feel stuck, and unsure of how to get moving again? Let’s explore those feelings together.

While exploring the mental wellness of myself and my loved ones, I recognized an unwarranted assumption that an individual’s need for support must be rooted by an explicit problem or trigger. In actuality, simply being human can be difficult and everyone is deserving of support whether they can label their obstacles or not. As a Counselling Therapist, I aim to provide a safe space for you to show up as you are, where you are in life, and to walk alongside you through your mental wellness journey.

Using a non-judgmental, strength-based collaborative approach I offer support to individuals aged 14 and older who are experiencing difficulties with but not limited to: life transitions, relationships, anxiety, burnout, and general life stress. I use an integrative approach to best suit the needs of each individual.

I have a particular interest in supporting post-secondary students at all stages of their education. I have experience with students with disabilities in accessing accommodations and assistive technology and have supported post-secondary students on the autism spectrum, with ADHD, and learning disabilities. Using these experiences and education, I offer executive functioning coaching as well.

I am passionate about creating neurodivergent-friendly and 2SLQBTQIA+ affirming spaces.

I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and am a Registered Counselling Therapist – Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT). I am also a registered member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

I am available for online and in-person sessions, with daytime and evening openings!
