My goal is to provide a non-judgmental space where you can process and explore your unique path. Through our work together I aspire to empower you to express your authentic self without unconscious beliefs and behaviors getting in your way. Informed by my background as a holistic nutritionist and yoga teacher, my approach integrates various facets of well-being, recognizing the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit.

Together, we can navigate the complexities of life and uncover the strength within you.

Areas of Focus

  • Trauma informed
  • Disordered Eating and body image with an understanding of Anti Diet culture
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Relationship challenges
  • Grief and Loss
  • Anti Oppressive lens

Modalities

  • Family Systems
  • Internal Family systems

  • Person Centered

I understand the immense courage it takes to engage in vulnerable counselling work.

Throughout my life, I assumed a caretaker role in my family, striving to prove my worth and belonging through self-sacrifice. This journey led me to overlook my own emotional needs and question my deservingness of meaningful relationships without overextending myself. It’s been a transformative experience in therapy to realize that everyone, myself included, deserve support, imperfections and all. Sharing my authentic self has shown me the power of vulnerability and the joy of receiving support.
