I am a compassionate human who loves to support other humans in figuring out how to live life more bravely and meaningfully. My overall approach is client-centred. I will consider you the expert in your life and will encourage exploration of your creativity, resourcefulness and strengths. The process of finding a new counsellor can take time, energy, money and courage so I offer all new clients an obligation-free 10 minute chat via phone or zoom to see if it's a good fit before we start working together.

I offer a space for individuals to enhance their understanding of how they relate to the world, themselves, and others. I assist individuals in exploring current, and enduring difficulties they may have that are impacting their ability to live life in a way that they consider to be meaningful. I often meet with individuals who are interested in exploring facets of their lives untouched by previous therapeutic endeavors. I am engaged with existential literature and eastern thought and religion, specifically that of Zen Buddhist practice, in particular their application to therapy.

My focus is on working with older adolescents and adults with difficulties regulating their emotions and behaviours, often where there have been traumatic events in their background. This may mean that people come to me for therapy with diagnoses of BPD or cPTSD. I am formally trained in a number of evidence-based therapies, including CBT, EMDR, and DBT (for adults and adolescents). I hold full membership with ACPA and EMDRAA.

I work with couples who want to actively engage in change to help them gain insight into themselves and the world, using their emotional reactions, thoughts and feeling. I believe people attain the greatest well-being through self- and other-acceptance. Understanding repetitive, unwanted patterns helps people step out of the fray and gain a meta-perspective making us aware of different choices that can be made moving forward. I don't work with couples when there are serious issues of power and control, or interpersonal violence (physical or emotional). I do not write Court reports, reports or serve as an expert witness.

So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma, bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma, whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.

I am passionate about helping individuals who feel stuck in a rut of fear and self-sabotage, and find that simple "positive-mindset" strategies don't work. I work largely with mental health presentations that stem from early attachment issues from difficult childhoods. Sessions incorporate inner child work to facilitate relationships in the present.
