Philosophy

I value creating a safe, compassionate, empathetic, and authentic space for you to tell your story, heal from your experiences, cultivate self-compassion, explore your values, and work toward self-fulfillment.

 

Approach

I use evidence-based approaches and I work from an eclectic approach drawing mainly from Compassion-Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I work from a multicultural, and intersectional feminist lens which informs my understanding of how systemic oppression and discrimination affects quality of life and well-being.

I have worked with individuals presenting with issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, and low self-esteem resulting from trauma, discrimination, abuse, invalidation, isolation, chronic pain, burnout, and infertility. I also support individuals who are struggling with body image, eating disorders and disordered eating. As a BIPOC individual, I have lived and academic research experience on the damaging physical and psychological effects of discrimination. Therefore, I am particularly passionate about supporting individuals experiencing discrimination and helping them find their voice.

 

A Bit About Me

I enjoy listening to music, roadtripping, camping, being in nature, a good belly laugh, spending time with my loved ones and eating delicious food!
