Whether you are seeking support as a result of a sudden transition in your life or a longstanding issue that has just become too heavy to carry, I believe therapy can offer a unique space for healing and growth. I have extensive experience working with adults experiencing anxiety, sadness, stress, chronic pain, and trauma in both private practice and in treatment settings. I also work with couples to reduce conflict and help clients go from cycles of blame, distancing, and resentment to feeling loved and connected.
I support my clients to identify unhealthy patterns of communication and behaviour to develop new skills in order to build deeper and healthier relationships. I work from a variety of therapeutic modalities and use the gold standard of Emotionally-Focused Therapy for couples. Couples are amazed at how quickly a small change can help them to feel closer.
My approach to therapy is evidence-based, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive. My role is to support you in feeling safe to express emotions, process difficult experiences, explore options, and to learn new skills to thrive in your life. I am eager to explore your needs, challenges and goals.
