Areas of specialization include: - people in 20’s/30’s struggling with anxiety - sexual orientation confusion/curiosity - LGBTQIA+ - sex-workers - cultic/high control/spiritual abuse survivors - those affected by conspiracy theory addiction /engulfment - abusive relationship survivors - sexual trauma survivors.
My primary modality is Internal Family Systems therapy where I incorporate somatic work. Creating a safe, strong, non-dogmatic, container together is the key component of my practice. I am especially skilled at attuning, and providing company in places that you may have previously felt alone. We will work on regulating the nervous system and building resources, while also exploring issues and relationships in our life that feel difficult. Many of my clients are people in their 20s and 30s exploring the transitions and challenges of adulthood while reckoning with Family of Origin trauma.

My primary work is in sexual, and complex mental health concerns. I have extensive training in ISTDP, Direct Neurofeedback (DNF), and behavioral approaches such as CBT, and DBT.

My diverse range of skills, such including harassment investigation, and conflict resolution mediation, with my 25 years in the military proves me to be a very direct clinician. I work with individuals, couples and families/supports with varied needs. Most importantly, I strive to provide a safe space for all clients.

Has traditional therapy not worked for you? Do certain memories still have a strong negative emotional pull when they come up, or when discussed in therapy? For some, there needs to be more than simply talking about the issues that distress us. Sometimes we need to address the underlying cause — the ‘root’ of the problem — not just the current symptoms that currently cause us distress: whether it be interpersonally, emotionally or within the cognitive space.

We cannot change the events or situations of our past, but we can absolutely be free from being chronically impacted, and compacted by our history. You are entitled to all of your feelings and they are an integral part of healing and living a healthy life. If you are ready to move what you are holding to a new place, I am here to support that process. You can find your voice, unpack your story, be seen and heard, I bring tools and support to make the changes you would like to make, so that you can embrace your life with love and enthusiasm. In my mind, everyone who survived their story and makes it to counselling is a superhero.
