I use a relational, attachment-based, somatic approach to counselling and have worked with people from all walks of life.
The effects of trauma are many, and can feel overwhelming and unbearable. If you are experiencing post-traumatic stress responses such as, anxiety, depression, unhealthy or abusive relationships, substance misuse, self-harm or suicidal ideation, you are not alone. Many mental health symptoms are automatic responses and attempts to cope with trauma. These adaptations don't always serve us in the best way. When trauma can't be processed in the moment, it is often held in the body and we can become "stuck". A Somatic approach to counselling may help you move forward and heal from the effects of trauma in an embodied way.

*Currently accepting new clients.* My aim is to provide a trusting, nonjudgmental space in which you feel safe enough to share your personal story. While there is an innate wisdom within all of us, our ability to see the way forward can become clouded when we are overwhelmed by tragedy or adversity. A deep exploration of one’s internal experience can often be freeing, and provide valuable insight into patterns of relating to the self, others, and the world around us. An attachment-based, client-centred orientation allows us to work collaboratively in drawing connections between your past experiences and your present situation.

I work from an attachment-based and trauma-informed lens and integrate inner child work, emotion-focused therapy, somatic awareness, self-compassion, and mindfulness.
I mainly work with individuals dealing with issues like depression, self-esteem, identity, body image, trauma, and relationship concerns. I believe there are many parts to each person’s story and want to create a space where you are seen as a whole and feel welcomed to come as you are. Many of us have the experience of feeling like an outsider, or that we are flawed in some way, and I understand how hard it can be to extend compassion to yourself in these moments. Together we can explore the places that feel stuck and heal them from a place of gentleness and compassion.

I approach therapy as a creative and collaborative process that involves the whole being of both the therapist and client. In order to lead fulfilling, joyful lives, humans need access to the intelligence available through their physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves. Trauma, shame, and fear can disrupt our ability to access and experience these aspects of self fully, and can leave us feeling dissatisfied with our lives. By working directly with clients' felt sense of their bodies, as well as their stories and their feelings, I support clients in deepening their relationship to all aspects of themselves.

I believe the therapeutic relationship provides the foundation for client change to take place. Through a safe and supportive relationship, individuals can process and heal from emotional experiences that are too overwhelming to deal with on one’s own. I believe human-beings are biologically wired for healing and self-repair; however, negative emotions can get stuck when we create defensive strategies to protect ourselves from painful experiences. I affirm that individuals are the experts of their own lives who possess incredible strength and resiliency, and my aim is to help each client uncover and draw on these inner resources.

I am passionate about helping people see their strengths and recover from limiting beliefs that are often a result of the minor or major traumas that are a part of life. I view symptoms and undesired behaviours as wise, but outdated adaptations that can be transformed. Befriending our mind and finding self acceptance are key tenets that influence my therapy. With a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, I strive to provide a safe, curious, and humorous (at times), space for your personal growth.

We are human and challenges arise for each of us. Counselling can be a means of support a way to heal from past experiences and to plan for the future. There are many reasons people access counselling. The most common reasons are: depression or anxiety, relationship issues, social isolation, body issues, motivation, parenting, substance use, a traumatic experience, academic challenges, an inability to identify feeling, and needing to talk to an impartial person. The list is quite diverse and these are only the most common reasons. I am here to work alongside you and draw from my professional experiences and training to bring more balance, joy, and health into your life. I am trained to work with children, youth, adults, older adults, families, and couples.
