Faith works with young adults and adults who are looking to find their voice, create boundaries, and practice self-compassion. Whether you’re navigating a difficult relationship, struggling with high expectations (from yourself or others), or want to better support yourself, she’ll help you identify your needs and establish goals. Faith can support you to develop healthier, more sustainable relationships with your loved ones and with yourself.
In sessions, Faith emphasizes compassion, authenticity, and client-centred support. She has brought her skills and experience to the Canadian Mental Health Association, York University, and the York Hills Centre for Children, Youth, and Families. Faith knows that no two clients are alike, and her practice reflects this. She’ll support you to better understand your story and help you move forward with approaches that fit your needs.
Faith recognizes that therapy can sometimes bring vulnerability and discomfort. She strives to create a safe space where you’re both seen and heard. Faith draws from narrative therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, and other relevant approaches. She makes space for each part of who you are, honouring both your triumphs and challenges.
Outside of sessions, Faith can be found with her nose in a book or rewatching sitcoms while she makes dinner. She comes from a large Filipino/Trinidadian family and learned to cook without recipes or exact measurements. Much like her practice, Faith believes that no two dishes should be exactly the same.
