"I am truly grateful that you have invited me to walk beside you; being in the presence of another individual as they journey through the labyrinth of self-discovery and healing, is rewarding in my role as the compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative companion."
Mental Health Counselling
I believe that each individual is the expert in their life story; that we all have within us the power to create and experience transformational positive changes in our lives. I offer a collaborative, safe and compassionate environment where one can explore those areas of growth without fear of judgment.

To help you on your journey, I use many techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, guided visualizations, hypnotherapy, art, journaling, tapping or emotional freedom technique, eastern perspectives and concepts, spiritual concepts and exploration, just to name a few.
I have years of experience helping people living with anxiety, stress, depression, mood fluctuations and low self esteem, to find the power within themselves to rewrite their story through spiritual, emotional, and mental healing and growth.

I am a Master of Usui Reiki Ryoho. I have long used Psychotherapeutic Soul Reiki, an approach based on Eastern Energy concepts, Reiki, Mindfulness and Western Psychotherapy models to alleviate psychological, emotional and behavioural problems.
Reiki often brings out unresolved memories, thoughts, and emotions which need to be uncovered and released for the healing to take place. As a Reiki Master, I help individuals increase their awareness of the body-mind process as it is occurring while encouraging them to explore the deep psychological meaning(s) behind their imbalances.

I specialize in helping individuals of all ages with generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, performance anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder and phobias.
Highly Sensitive People
I specialize, understand and know how to support Highly Sensitive Individuals (HSP), being one myself. I empathize with how challenging it can be to feel misunderstood, however, being an HSP is anything but a weakness. HSPs are some of the most perceptive, original, open-minded, considerate, empathic, talented, and kind persons you will ever encounter.
Living with constant stress can lead to health issues and burn out in the long run. Counselling provides helpful coping strategies such as mindfulness to reduce stress.
In children, emotional disturbance is blanket term to include unexplained cognitive, interpersonal, emotional, and learning difficulties. I use a variety of techniques to encourage self-reflection and guide my client's perceptions away from negativity, cultivate positive change, and establish self-affirming habits to help them succeed.
Depression often stems from negative thought patterns that can be managed by identifying and changing thoughts using a client-centered approach and mindfulness-based techniques.
I believe in the importance of balancing the mind, body and spirit. When the body is unhealthy, the mind and spirit become unhealthy as well. The same is true for an unhealthy mind that manifests as aches and pains. I work with my clients to help identify what is causing the imbalance and provide coping skills in order to recenter yourself and heal.
Counselling provides you with the tools and strategies needed to promote personal growth by helping you nurture and enrich your mental, emotional, and physical health.
Self Esteem & Confidence
In the era of social media, self esteem issues are at an all time high, especially among preteens and teenagers. I provide a supportive and compassionate environment to help individuals challenge self-critical thoughts and opinions while providing the skills needed to nurture an attitude that promotes positivity, confidence and self-respect.
Modalities and Approaches
In my work as a psychotherapist, I adhere to a Client-Centered, Mindfulness-Based and Humanistic view of psychology with an emphasis on the proper integration of the five levels of the individual - body, feelings, intellect, transpersonal self and spirit. I specialize in blending Eastern Philosophy and Therapeutic concepts, with Mindfulness and Western Psychotherapy models and perspectives.
I use a Creative, Holistic and Eclectic style of therapy that combines a variety of
techniques and tools, in order to tailor my approach to the client’s personal style,
their needs and their goals. It can also be described as Integrative in nature.
