Registered Social Worker
I believe that within each of us lies the potential to heal, to change, and to grow. Sometimes that potential gets clouded by the events in our lives and it can feel impossible to see a path forward. That’s where I come in. Together, we will work towards creating the life that you want to live – exploring values, hopes, and goals, while at the same time working towards creating a cohesive inner experience that allows you to live with self-compassion, courage, and clarity.
My approach is down to earth, attentive, and gentle yet direct. I primarily utilize Internal Family Systems to help you build self-compassion and move towards the life you want to be living. My work is informed by the understanding that we all have many different parts inside of us that each want to be seen and heard. By creating space for all the parts of ourselves to be seen and known with love and compassion, we experience healing and wholeness in a new way. I am here to offer you a grounded, secure presence for the work you have come to do.

What I’m listening to right now?
What I’m reading right now?
No Bad Parts by Richard Schwartz
The Librarian Spy by Madeline Martin
What’s your favourite way to spend free time?
Sitting by the water with an iced coffee, listening to audiobooks, walking with my wife and dogs, going for long drives with no destination, collaging
Who do you work with?
People typically come to see me because they’re struggling with disordered eating, trauma, depression, or anxiety. I work with adults of all ages.
What would you like for a client to say about working with you?
I would hope that a client would say that they felt truly seen and understood by me during our work together. I hope they’d say that my office was a safe place to them to bring all of their concerns, and they knew I wouldn’t judge them. I hope that they’d say they developed more self-compassion and a greater understanding of themselves.
Have you ever read a book that changed your life?
Trauma Stewardship by Laura van Dernoot Lipsky. I read this book in grad school and it transformed how I care for myself while I do the working of caring for others. I could read it over and over and learn something new about myself each time.

Note to Self by Nikita Gill
More than anything, I wish I could tell my younger self,
“You are not a thing that someone else can ruin forever.
Your body is not made of shame, it is made of light.
You are not a tragedy waiting to happen, you are your own moon, glowing fearlessly in the night sky despite all that has happened to you.”
