What do individuals generally find challenging about the process of therapy & coaching?

I attract many spiritually minded business owners, entrepreneurs and high performers in my practice.  One thing remains true with all of them, they all put an incredible amount of pressure on themselves to achieve results and that pressure has consequences.

Thinking about change and taking action can be very challenging for most of us. Many of us sabotage ourselves and let our fears dominate our actions. In the therapy room, everything is about self discovery, healing and taking complete accountability for our mindset in life.

Living a courageous and authentic life is something most of us desire and yet we hold ourselves back from living without regret and full expression of ourselves. The beliefs we hold about ourselves operate without interruption and influence absolutely everything in our life and I want to help you change that.

The invitation in therapy and coaching is to consider how you approach self development, including their attitude towards growth and adversity in life. The mindset we aim for is, we are all imperfect and yet, we strive for growth, we strive for more self awareness and we become motivated to deeply know ourselves. It is from this place of knowing ourselves that we can truly change, connect to our inner wisdom and find our way on this spiritual journey.  

We look at life through the lens that we are here in one big life school and the universe is our teacher.

My therapy and coaching is a process of self discovery, exploration and removing blocks and patterns that get in your way.  This can be an extremely powerful way to create a positive growth mindset and develop a new story of how we see ourselves in the world.

What training or specializations complement your work with individuals? What’s unique about your style?

First off, I bring a perspective that life is one big life school for all of us and we all have specific lessons we need to learn in this life.  This soulful connection to learning means that we can develop a mindset that is centered around growth, resilience and living an intentional life.

My main foundational training is a humanistic approach to therapy.  I use a psychodynamic psychotherapy approach that includes gestalt therapy, internal family systems, relational therapy and emotion focused.  My coaching is foundationally grounded in gestalt, positive psychology and focused on helping my client’s with their mindset and beliefs. 

This style is effective for undoing past unconscious patterns, healing past wounds and developing a stronger self-esteem, while empowering you towards stepping into your future self with a renewed sense confidence.

I believe strongly in helping people to embrace the present moment, accepting themselves with more self-compassion and discovering that all the wisdom in the world lives within you already. 

Psychotherapy is powerful method to improve your relationship to yourself and others. As a Gestalt Psychotherapist I am very experiential in my approach, using intuition to guide my questions and direction.

What training or specializations complement your work with couples? What’s unique about your style?

I help couples how to slow down and make contact with one another in a deeply relational way.   Where they can see, hear and get one another by moving into very impactful dialogues.  It is from this place that we can heal, repair and re-connect with our partners.

My training in couples therapy pulls on gestalt couples therapy, the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, IMAGO couples therapy, Encountered Centred Couples Therapy and Relational Life Therapy from Terry Real.  

Most of my focus in couples therapy is on creating a new culture of communication, repairing connection and healing relationship wounds.

What training or specializations complement your work with couples? What’s unique about your style?

I have extensive couples therapy training (Gottman, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Relational Life Therapy Couples Focused, & Gestalt Couples Therapy)

Most of my focus in couples therapy is on communication, conflict resolution and relational coaching to empower couples to get the relationship they both want. I specialize in re-building connection, enhancing communication and building strong relationship habits.

I use a combination of teaching, coaching and therapy to help couples create a culture of great communication and intimacy.

Nobody gets taught how to repair in their relationships and disconnection is going to happen. Learning how to integrate new communication skills and developing your ability to be present is essential for couples to thrive.

Growing up, I was the shy kid, the dreamer, I loved being outside, I was a true nature baby at my core. My journey as a secret keeper began when I was quite young. I was the one that everyone told their secrets to and witnessed and experienced quite a bit of trauma and messy situations in my youth.

I had moments of great connection and then I had moments full of disconnection and suffering. The suffering is something I look back on with great gratitude now and I would not change for a second. The suffering led me to always asking deeper questions of life and pushed me within to connect with my spirit.

I would always want to talk about the bigger questions in life, the kinda stuff like “Why are we here and what’s the point of all of this”? “Where do we go when we die and why isn’t anyone else talking about this”?

That curiosity grew as a teenager and in my early twenties it led me to some pretty amazing places within myself. I would read books on healing, energy work and psychology. It fascinated me and I began to see the magic in the power of our intentions and believe systems.

I literally became obsessed with personal growth and human potential and I set out to learn from as many guides, masters and teachers as I could. (I still do 😊)

Anyone who knows me well, knows I have strong inner wanderlust and that has led me to many places around the world. Right before taking my psychotherapy training, I was travelling abroad and studying meditation with monks in Thailand, soaking up wisdom in Ashrams in Nepal and lastly a Tibetan monastery in India.

At the Tibetan monastery I intensely practiced meditation for 14hrs a day, it was here travelling within myself that changed my path forever. I had a big spiritual awakening and discovered that home is within your heart and I found a very deep peace within. I became really focused on mindfulness, cultivating a positive growth mindset and used meditations to go deep within myself.

I began to assume a new belief and attitude that the universe was/is my teacher, that life is one big spirit school of lessons, growth and beautiful moments of connection. We are creative powerful beings and have so much potential and we just have to learn to tap into that energy and belief within ourselves.

After this experience abroad I knew that I wanted to help others find inner peace and discover their best life, which led to me enrolling in a transformational psychotherapy program in Toronto called The Gestalt Institute of Toronto.
It was here In this small magic school of psychotherapy that I learned how to weave the art of the here and now into helping people reach new levels of self awareness, healing and growth.

After studying in this post-graduate psychotherapy program, I started a private practice 13 years ago in Toronto. Shortly after beginning, I had the opportunity to move west in 2011 and I have been practicing psychotherapy and coaching here ever since.

My philosophy is that this is deeply sacred work, I feel truly honoured to serve and walk alongside my clients in their journey. It's a privilege that I feel grateful for everyday.
