How Have I Became a Psychotherapist?

My role as a marriage counsellor and psychotherapist began over 16 years ago when I found myself on 8month journey to South East Asia. At the beginning of that trip I made one of the most important decisions of my life. To join a 10day silent meditation retreat in the jungle. The rule was you cannot speak to anyone for 10days and you go within yourself.

This became a signature life event for me, because from that day onwards I became obsessed with mindfulness, personal development and found myself drawn to every self-help book, video and workshop you could think of.

This experience at the Tibetan Monastery was a deep immersion into meditation that help me focus my energy and attention towards life changing and when I returned to Canada, I decided to go to school to become trained as a registered psychotherapist and serve other people.

My Work History

I found a private institution that specialized in mindfulness and the here and now called The Gestalt Institute of Toronto. I attended their rigorous training program graduating their post-graduate program to become a fully registered Psychotherapist in Ontario.

Before I started my private practice, I opened a new facility for high risk youth and led a team of mental health professionals to successfully support and enhance their lives in a Southern Ontario. I had the role of leading our team to develop skill building programming for the youth, create a therapeutic environment and offer counselling where needed.

Currently, I still play an active role advising leaders and professionals in residential treatment centers on how to implement best practices and lead their teams.

After leading residential treatment center, I took a role as the lead facilitator for an innovative conference center in Toronto, where I designed and delivered team building and leadership workshops for our corporate clients.

I successfully developed programming and workshops for building trust on teams, how to have difficult conversations, dealing with conflict in the workplace and many more.

Shortly after moving to Alberta I started my private practice specializing in relationship counselling, anxiety counselling, depression counselling and life coaching for self esteem and developing more confidence in my clients.

As of now I have been in my own private practice as a psychotherapist, coach and trainer in Calgary for over 10years now and I can say now more than ever that I am so very privileged to have this role in my career. After spending years specializing in marriage counselling, anxiety counselling, depression counseling and coaching entrepreneurs and professionals to have more fulfilling lives that I truly love my job.

Approach to Therapy & Coaching

The perfect blend of therapy and coaching means that I am moving back and forth between empowering and challenging my clients to grow.

It is my job to help you understand that truth and learn to live in more comfortable state of mind with yourself.
