***Currently offering Phone and Online Video sessions. If you are a Front Line Worker go to https://covid19therapists.com/ for Free Therapy over the Phone.*** When we feel overwhelmed, resentful, anxious, or unhappy, our emotions are telling us that something isn't right. Usually that is because we have started making decisions that are intended to protect us from feeling pain that we have felt before, pain that was too much too bare. When we discover what these patterns in our behaviour or relationships are, and what the pain or fear is that is underneath them, it can open up space for joy, creativity, and peace.

These past few months have shown just how quickly things can change. You may feel like your sense of security and life direction has been rocked. You may be struggling to make sense of it all. This can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, and other unhelpful symptoms. Underneath is a desire for connection and to feel worthy. Maybe you just started feeling that something is wrong, or perhaps this sense has been with you for a while. I want to help you uncover what is going on within you. Through our work together, you will notice what is getting in the way of you being okay and feeling fine.
