When you’ve had a falling out with a parent, a child, a partner, or a friend, or are grappling with a past struggle or loss, it can feel overwhelming - like you’re tumbling into a deep hole, with no way out. But you’re not alone. I’d be honoured to brave the dark alongside, and help you on your climb back up and into the sun. I’m a heart-centred, systems-oriented Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief, and relationship challenges, particularly during the pivotal perinatal life stages. (Accepting new clients for September-October, 2024).
Proficiency in trauma and body-based mindfulness means that I’ll assist with an array of evidence-based cognitive, somatic + experiential climbing tools that have helped many people on similar journeys. With years of experience working in the realms of family crises and compulsive behaviour, I’ve accompanied many on their journey toward well-being + ease.
I understand that psychotherapy can look intimidating for the first time. Your therapy session is a safe, inclusive space where we can hold and reshape your pain into growth with compassion and respect. You don’t have to make the climb alone. Let’s meet for Zoom and tea and see if it fits: please contact me to set up a no-charge 15-minute chat.
