'Challenge brings change". Easy to say, yet difficult to do. Victor Frankl wrote, "when we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves", (Man's Search for Meaning, 1946). When we find ourselves in difficult situations, we have choice - remain in the pain, or seek support to move through. I know life's greatest challenges have brought incredible change to my life, but it hasn't been easy. You don't need to face challenge and change alone.

Taking New Adult Clients. You are stressed, anxious or have trauma but you don't want to burden others or you are afraid they will judge you. You feel guilty about taking time for yourself. You may be angry and frustrated with yourself or someone else. You want a safe space to talk without watching what you say, feeling blamed or told you are wrong. You need validation, support and want to change. I help adult clients understand their mild/moderate anxiety, depression, stress and trauma then learn simple and effective tools to cope better. Find confidence to set boundaries that help you feel strong, in control and create change.

Each one of us will struggle at some point in our lives, but these are particularly challenging times for many us. With lockdown, stress, anxiety, and depression are increasing, as are unhelpful coping strategies. Relationships are being tested. Many of my clients are seeking to feel calm and experience more emotional balance. Others are deciding that now is a good time to start the healing process from a past traumatic experience. Another common goal for clients is to start living in line with their values, or what they truly want in life.

*Accepting new clients for on-line sessions* Are you finding it hard to cope? Has life turned out different than what you planned? In my sessions we look inward, to see what is preventing you from being your truest self. Is there guilt, shame, anger? Is there depression and anxiety? Together we find the way for you to grow, to emerge stronger and more peaceful. When faced with adversity, we often avoid the problem in a myriad of ways including drinking, eating, obsessively exercising or other addictions. I help clients identify therapy goals, work on interpersonal and intrapersonal issues, and become emotionally resilient.

As a queer and nonbinary person, I’m is committed to affirming experiences and identities that are traditionally marginalized, and my counselling work is grounded in an understanding of how systems of oppression impact our lives and the challenges we face.
Are things feeling like a lot right now? It's tough out there. Whether you're struggling in your relationships, wondering what the heck a boundary is and how to create them, needing ways to cope with a really intense world, or wanting to trace a frustrating pattern and find new ways forward, you deserve support. I work with folks who are feeling stuck or overwhelmed to build resilience and choice. Using a somatic, attachment-based approach, I aim to create a space of care and acceptance for folks to name and feel feelings, map out unhelpful patterns, and practice new ways of navigating life’s challenges.

*** ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** My passion is working with clients who are neurodivergent, ethically non monogamous (long term or just starting to explore it -) from swinging to relationship anarchists, and or LGBTQ identified. I work with clients who desire support in understanding themselves better, healing from past hurts, exploring new or shifting relational dynamics, and striving to live their best life as their authentic self. I believe that empathy and understanding are foundational to growth and healing and therefore work to meet you where you're at with the tools you possess.

For me, counselling is about discovering tools that will help you to heal and develop better relationships with yourself and others by letting go of anxiety, depression, and stress. Let me guide you in new ways to be in healthy relationships and align with the life that you envision for yourself and/or your loved ones. The first step in any growth is self-awareness, our sessions together will help guide you to learn how to become self-aware in all situations and how to process daily events that may be significant in life, or may only seem to be significant due to your current outlook.

I believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to grow and change. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives without the insight as to how they can be helped. I use a strengths-based approach as I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering and insecurities. All therapies are evidenced-based and trauma informed.

If you are struggling with a particular issue, feeling lost in a relationship; intimate or professional, worrying and lacking the motivation to put ideas/thoughts into action, or just generally feeling stuck, I'm glad you are here. Life is complex and doesn't come with clear and definitive guidelines. No wonder we can feel overwhelmed! Sometimes it can just feel like it too much to manage alone. Working in a therapeutic relationship where you are the focus can help you find ways to learn, grow, and heal.
