About me

Photo of Me


I received my Post-Masters Certificate in Art Therapy at the BC School of Art Therapy in Victoria, Canada, and have worked with a diverse range of clients online and in mental health as well as counselling settings.


I employ a person-centered approach and specialize in struggles around trauma, life transitions, spirituality, depression, anxiety, and addiction. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ clients.


At the beginning of the therapy journey, we set a goal for your healing and check in with the progress on this goal in each following session.

These rewarding experiences deepened my connection to yoga, meditation and mindfulness.
