About My Practice:

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a registered Art Therapist in Quebec. I specialize in Couples Therapy with the focus of using relational research from the Gottman Institute and implementing the Gottman Method to support my couples’ relationship needs. I also specialize in Individual Relationship Therapy to help individuals bring their best selves into their most intimate relationships through narrative therapy, art therapy, and attachment-based interventions and to help my clients practice relationship skills such as non-violent communication, emotional regulation, empathetic listening, and relational compassion.

As a second-generation immigrant with a TCK background, I am sensitive to how our larger cultural, spiritual, and family contexts shape the way we experience life and all the transitions in between. In therapy, I am committed to understanding the larger systems that have an influence over my clients as we situate the presenting issues in its right contexts for change. In my professional and personal experiences, I firmly believe compassionate practices open opportunities for recovery, growth, connections, and to experience joy. And I am committed to provide the safest relationship for my clients to make meaningful changes in their unique life stories.
