Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. Therapy is a collaborative process that uses curiosity, courage and compassion to start exploring and unpacking all of the parts of ourselves and our experiences so that we can become connected to our wholeness once again. There are times when we may feel haunted by our past experiences, are having difficulties coping with life transitions or stressors, or are feeling stuck. It is my belief that through gentle exploration we can start to find the inner resources needed to move through and grow from these difficult experiences.

I am a skilled and compassionate Registered Psychologist that enjoys working with individual adults and teens. I specialize in treating trauma, depression and anxiety (including pre- and post-natal), and stress. I have a special interest in working with first responders, public safety personnel, and medical professionals. All of my experience has led me to believe that we are all capable of healing, but that in order to move in that direction, we need a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental environment to be able to explore current and past difficulties and how our minds and bodies respond.

Life and healing are like a spiral. We walk it, holding the experiences life hands us (suffering, joy, and everything in between) with an invitation to grow, heal, and become our best self. I walk the spiral of my own life lead by heart and intuition, and I work with people in the same way. Healing is a sacred journey into self discovery and holding space for your process of discovery in counselling, it is my goal to support you. I am passionate about understanding your story and working collaboratively with you. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (ccc designation) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

Unlike many people in private practice, my practice focuses specifically on supporting people to heal from trauma. When we think of "trauma", many of us often think of significant events that cause difficulties with coping. However, the experience of trauma is much more than an event. The experience of abuse, neglect or living with prolonged exposure to stress can have a significant impact on physical, emotional and spiritual health. I work with trauma that can occur from single events as well as exposure to trauma over a longer period of time. I use a number of modalities to address the complex nature of trauma.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
