My Story

I believe lived experience and diversity are crucial in the world of therapy. I know what it is like to be on the other side, to be afraid to start therapy, but to know that support and strategies are needed. I come from a family of Immigrants and I grew up in a multiracial and multi-faith home. I experienced a lot of anxiety, stress, and prejudice growing up. I began seeking therapy as a teenager and it transformed my life. Through the extensive comfort, strategies, and support I was able to manage and heal. Most importantly, I learned that we are all human with our own unique struggles. We all need support.

 

Through these experiences, I spent a few years working in the mental health field within university and youth settings. I obtained education in both the mental health field and in social justice related fields as I believe the two go hand in hand. My work, education, and lived experience led me to starting this practice, with aims to help those from all walks of life. I understand how difficult starting therapy can be, and I hope to make the process accessible, understanding, and gentle.
