Experiencing relationship anxiety and trauma? Feeling stuck between multiple worlds? We are relational beings and things that happen with people around us have a big impact on how we feel and act—even if it’s something that happened a long time ago. These unprocessed events and trauma can make you feel stuck, which might show up as anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. In my therapy, I will help you understand why you feel, think, and behave the way you do and learn new skills so you can make the changes you want, to live a more authentic life.


I use the Person-Centred approach combined with Attachment and Trauma to work on depression, anxiety, relationships, childhood trauma, and identities. This means that I see you as a whole person including environmental factors. I also draw from modalities such as Emotion-Focused Therapy, Internal Family System, CBT, and Mindfulness-based Therapy.


In my UX design and research job, I have helped improve governments and organizations’ services for citizens. I have extensive experience working with underserved populations, such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, immigrants, and people with disabilities. If you would like to start therapy with me, reach out to book a free 15-minute consultation.


Please note that my service is all online.
