As a professional in the performing arts, my life was a mélange of excitement and opportunity, blended with the reality of hurdles and rejection.
With the challenges of life as an artist, I found strength in understanding my inner world with the guidance of a therapist. This was the beginning of my commitment to self-care, a consistent practice that eventually led to pursuing a formal education in psychotherapy.
While completing my training as a psychotherapist, I was also finding my flow as a mother. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I became a parent. The true adventure of my life!
Having sat in both seats; as a therapist AND as a client, I can truly empathize with the process, while providing a safe container for my own clients. No matter where you sit, the experience is guaranteed to be messy, humbling, and rewarding.
My wish is that therapy will give you the healing and growth that helps you to be your best self.
I am a graduate of the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy. This specialized institution focuses on psychodynamic, intersubjective, and relational psychotherapy, combined with practical counselling experience and supervision with Toronto’s leading psychotherapists.
