In my 20s, I found myself in desperate need of a conversation that I couldn’t have with friends or family. On paper, it seemed that I should have been satisfied with my life, which made things all the more confusing. Instead, I was struggling with my past and how it seemed to be affecting me in ways that felt very painful and limiting. Psychotherapy allowed me to talk in an unfiltered and honest way, and to start taking responsibility for my life in a way that had previously felt unreachable.
Based on my own experiences with psychotherapy, I began studying at the Center for Training in Psychotherapy, while teaching elementary school in the Toronto District School Board. Currently, I have a full-time psychotherapy practice, and it feels wonderful to be in a profession that I chose and makes sense to me.
