I am an Internal Family Systems informed therapist who utilizes a trauma-informed lens while integrating approaches from Person-centred Therapy, self-compassion, mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, and EMDR.
There are many differing messages of who to be and it can be easy to lose connection to the truth of who we are. We are continually shaped and impacted by relationships, life experiences, trauma, and our worldviews. As well, our own mental health can rob us from living authentically. As a therapist, I value the unique identity and experience of each person I work with, welcoming individuals of diverse backgrounds, identities, cultures, and spiritual orientations. It is my desire that you experience a warm, supportive therapeutic relationship with me where you're encouraged to be the truest expression of yourself.

I use focusing oriented therapy, internal family systems and relational life therapy to help people connect with a sense of safety, find their agency and heal from the past.
When something's not working in your life, it can be frustrating, exhausting and overwhelming. Pain and suffering are signals that something needs attention. By working together, we can help you make sense of what is going on, create some space from overwhelming emotions, and find the natural next step to take. We will start where you are at right now, building skills and confidence as we go. Everyone has a natural drive towards growth, as well as ways that we have learned to protect ourselves from being hurt. Therapy can bring connection, compassion and curiosity, which help us move from suffering to feeling more ease in the world.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Counselling Art Therapist. I believe that everyone should have access to holistic equity-based counselling. As such, I am passionate about creating a safe, respectful, and validating space for you to explore your mental health and lived experiences through traditional talk therapy with the option of art and the art making process. Sometimes words do not get our important thoughts and feelings quite right, and art can be a great way to explore what lies within. No art experience needed!

Everyone experiences situations in their lives when things do not work out as planned or desired. You may be having a difficult time in moving forward without the time, tools and support to do so in a positive way. Our emotional health is equally, if not more, important than our physical and mental health. When we are faced with trauma, our emotional health takes a toll and affects our ability to manage and demonstrate the emotions that arise from what we have experienced. When individuals and family members address and work on issues, which have been buried for years, they are able to achieve a sense of peace, balance and comfort.

My passion is the journey back to the authentic self - free, embodied, and full of life. My approach is informed by mindfulness, Buddhist psychology, and contemplative practices. The human journey includes painful experiences. There can be unbearable tension between the harsh limits of life and our deep longings for freedom, connection, and wellbeing. It was my own experiences of pain, confusion, disconnection, and feeling stuck that first led me to the world of the therapeutic process. There I discovered a sense of inner connection. When the mind, body, and spirit are in harmony there is a sense of inner space, ease, and trust.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) Counsellors

What is Internal Family Systems therapy?

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a type of talk therapy that focuses on sub-personalities, or “families,” within a person, which may be made up of wounded parts and unpleasant emotions like anger and shame. These sub-personalities can come into conflict with each other and with an individual’s core Self, leaving the person feeling detached from positive traits such as the “8 C’s” of confidence, calmness, creativity, clarity, curiosity, courage, compassion, and connectedness. By healing a patient’s wounded parts, a therapist aims to restore balance and bring on positive change.

How does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

An IFS therapist will work with a patient to identify their particular sub-personalities, recognize the emotions powering them, and release them. By doing so, the patient should become more able to address any underlying problems their sub-personalities may have been trying to protect them from. Ultimately, a patient discovers ways to manage internal and external conflicts on their own, through techniques such as relaxation exercises, journaling, and making charts depicting the relationships between their core Self and their distinct parts.

Does Internal Family Systems therapy work?

IFS therapy has been shown to help people address conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic, fears and phobias, trauma, and substance use disorders. Some research has also found that it can help individuals deal with symptoms of physical health conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, such as pain, everyday functioning, depressive feelings, and low self-compassion. There are some conditions for which IFS treatment, specifically discussions of one’s “parts,” may be less appropriate, such as schizophrenia or other states that involve psychosis or paranoia.

How long does Internal Family Systems therapy take?

As with most forms of talk therapy, there is no set duration or end point for IFS therapy. After becoming comfortable with a therapist and the core concepts of IFS, some patients quickly make progress. While experiences vary, most will find that it is a relatively longer-term therapy, involving months and sometimes years of sessions.
