MC, Registered Provisional Psychologist

I respect that everyone experiences life differently and comes to therapy with their own story. At times, the voice that tells the story is self-criticizing and judgmental, making us feel powerless. My hope for our work together is that you come back to yourself and recognize your inherent strength and capacity for growth. I will meet you in a space of authenticity and vulnerability as we explore your inner world and help you feel more connected to your mind and body. 

I currently work with individual adults and couples. My passions include anxiety, people-pleasing, boundary setting, self-esteem/confidence, shame and guilt, stress and burnout, emotional regulation, school and work-related challenges, post-secondary student life, life transitions, and relationship difficulties.  

Working from an integrative and person-centered approach, I draw on Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Existentialism, and Gottman’s Couples Therapy. I integrate mindfulness in my approach to bring awareness to your body, listen to what your emotions may be trying to tell you, and help you connect to all parts of yourself.  

My practice is focused on helping you develop a stronger connection to self, others, and the world around you. I believe in your capacity for growth and trust that you know what is best for you. Together, we will determine goals that are important and realistic as I support you to live in alignment with your values. I will ask curious questions to help you develop new insights, offer hope, and listen between your words to find strength and resilience in your story. All of you is welcome in this space, and it is a privilege to join you.
