The theoretical framework from which I work is client-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed, and attachment and mindfulness based.
It is my pleasure to assist clients in connecting with their innate capacity to heal, supporting them to know their inner self and to trust themselves. I have extensive experience assisting a diverse range of clients to achieve their goals, develop new skills, regain emotional balance, and increase their sense of well-being. Clients can expect to feel deeply understood and validated while being gently invited to identify distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviour patterns that interfere with their ability to live their best life.

I bring an array of modalities to augment talk therapy including movement, mindfulness and the natural world.
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.

In addition to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) methods, I also incorporate mindfulness -based approaches and creative expressive therapies into my practice.
As a former international teacher in Egypt, China and Korea, I bring cultural humility and a deep appreciation for cultural diversity into my counselling practice. Additionally, my learning from Indigenous peoples has contributed to my understanding of a holistic model of health; the interconnectedness, and necessary balance, between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s self.

I offer insight-based, experiential therapy for clients who want to get to the root of their problems by locating unconscious issues and traumas, and actively working with these in-session in a gentle, effective way. Many of my clients have already tried "analyzing" their way free from unhealthy mental states and behaviours, and have realized they need a more effective strategy. My clients learn how to manage their behaviours and emotions from a wise, self-regulated place. I also work with partners who want to deepen their communication and connection and gain freedom from negative patterns. All approaches are evidence based.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
