My practice is informed by current research in neurobiology, mindfulness , creativity, and resilience.
Welcome! I'm grateful that your search has led you here. Many of us experience overwhelming emotions that we can’t make sense of, struggle with unhealthy outlets for emotional safety, have insecurities in our relationships when our needs don’t get met, and find it safer at times to hide our real selves from others. Together, we'll collaborate to expand your self-awareness, take intentional action towards your goals, and gently look inward to deeply nurture the parts of you that need healing. My approach is integrative and holistic, attending to your psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.

Some of the therapeutic practices I use are solution focused, cognitive behaviour therapy, emotion focused therapy, self regulation therapy, and mindfulness .
Life can sometimes feel like a rough sea and counselling can help you navigate the turbulent waters. It is my goal to provide a space where you can work through challenging issues and provide support to navigate these areas of your life. I will support you by acknowledging your unique experiences and struggles with life circumstances, inviting you to explore new ways of coping. It is my belief that connecting to the body, using techniques such as breathing, noticing sensations, and recognizing how sensations are linked to feelings often provides insight and are powerful resources to work through emotions.

I use a holistic, multimodal and body-oriented approach, incorporating parts-work, epigenetics, research on intergenerational trauma, attachment theory, emotion-focused therapies, mindfulness , existential and systems theories.
My work as a therapist is informed by human resilience and our intrinsic drive to heal. I believe that we are oriented towards growth, and the integration of trauma, life experience and pain is the doorway to actualization. I see therapy as a tool for becoming, it is process of unfolding, discovering and meeting yourself. This work can be challenging: struggle is part of the human experience, however, so is transformation, connection, and change. I work closely with those who have experienced trauma, disordered eating and body image issues, and anxiety and depression.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and my practice is informed by a variety of evidence-based approaches, including Mindfulness -Based therapies, ACT, and Narrative Therapy which aim to help individuals separate themselves from challenges they encounter and create new ways of living that reflect a more accurate and compassionate view of themselves.
Living through traumatic experiences can leave us feeling lost, unsafe, or out of control of our own lives. Especially if the trauma experienced was at the hands of someone you knew or trusted. Whether it is childhood abuse, neglect, domestic violence, or sexual abuse or assault; interpersonal trauma can rupture our ability to trust ourselves and others.

In practice, I draw from attachment theory, mindfulness , intuitive eating principals, and cognitive behaviour therapy.
We are each on a journey in search of safety, meaning, and fulfillment. Along the way we are constantly exposed to images and ideals of how we are supposed to look, how we are supposed to feel, and how we are supposed to behave. We start to doubt our uniqueness or our worth. I aim to create safe spaces to talk about things that might seem too personal, taboo, shameful, trivial, or embarrassing to share with others in your life. Together we can examine limiting beliefs about yourself, old stories of who you are and how you "should" be in the world, so you can start to live by choice, not by chance.

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.
