As we journey through life, unfair things happen. The painful memories create a sense of burden and influence future expectations. While we can't change the past, it is under our control to change the way we look at what happened. As challenging events and relationships unfold, we can control how we respond. We do this by becoming more aware of automatic negative reactions and replacing them with healthier thoughts, feelings and behaviours. My goal as a Psychotherapist is to help you identify and transcend elements of your life story that keep you trapped in a cycle where the same types of people and situations continually recur.
The first step in healing is recognition that your past may be influencing you in ways that you may not even understand. You may have self-limiting beliefs and feel that you are "stuck." Regardless of what happened, it is never too late to let go of your suffering, to transform your life and embrace a future filled with things that seem out of reach.
Special interests include emotional difficulties due to: mood disorders, abuse, untreated trauma, racialized trauma, academic/career/workplace issues, chronic illness, disabilities, discrimination, oppression and legal system involvement. It is my role to create a safe space for you to begin the transformative process of rising like a phoenix from the ashes.
