If you feel stuck, drained, lost, numb, and find it difficult to feel joy and happiness; if you feel the tension that is constantly activated and stealing your energy away; and if you feel exhausted and unmotivated; there is a great chance that you carry some undigested and repressed emotions and experiences. If Trauma is left unattended, it could diminish the quality of life. If you feel that life handed you more than you can handle, it can be paralyzing.

Most of the work I do involve Cognitive and Behavioral Change through Coaching, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness Based Somatic Therapy, Therapeutic Yoga movements and Emotional Freedom Technique.
Nowadays, we are living in a world that is so advanced yet in many ways leave us feeling stressed and inadequate. if you are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Difficult relationships, Career Dissatisfaction, Self Limiting Habits and Self Sabotage, you are not alone. Often times these issues show up in our experiences as Fear, Anger, Resentment, Sadness, Weight Gain, Addictive Habits, Fatigue, Sleepiness or Sleeplessness, Headaches, Phobias and many more. Where are you right now? Are you tired of seeking? Change can be paralyzing but the only way to get to the direction you want is to take that first step in spite of the fear.

For this reason, I combine mindfulness and relaxing yoga practice with narrative therapy, internal family systems therapy, and EMDR to support healing.
We sometimes find ourselves lacking in the opportunity to experience joy, creativity, meaning, and connection in our lives. At Ohana, we support the exploration of what it is that may be preventing you from being the person you want to be and healing in a way that allows you to have these experiences.

My therapy style combines Adlerian psychology (think Freud but the exact opposite), mindfulness , CBT, EMDR and Gottman Method for couples.
Do you struggle with anxiety, have difficulty creating new habits, experience low mood, high stress, or have problems in your relationships? You might have noticed that the 1950s "map of life" doesn't quite work the same, so you're navigating uncharted territory with your own compass and notebook. Our strategies to manage stress, mood and relationship conflicts work well enough until they don't, so the stress starts coming and it won't stop coming... If you also happen to struggle with people pleasing, boundaries, communication, perfectionism or assertiveness and you want to build confidence, you're not alone. And I've got maps.

I like to balance sessions with exploration of thoughts, feelings, and behaviours while finding moments to incorporate mindfulness and grounding.
I work with clients who are managing a variety of mental health concerns through a trauma-informed lens. You may come into therapy with labels and diagnoses which can feel heavy at times. My goal is to explore these with you to provide symptom management and collaboratively find more productive ways of looking at yourself. I've got a special passion for working with familial dynamics and relationships.

Working from an attachment and systems lens, I integrate emotion-focused, trauma-informed, and mindfulness approaches.
Children need to be mirrored. When they come to you, you want to be that clear mirror. So the most important work you do is with yourself. – Dr. Gabor Mate. The overwhelming challenges that you face as a parent are not meant to be felt alone. You deserve to be seen, understood, and supported in a way that recognizes the unique struggles of your family. There is courage in recognizing feeling exhausted, irritated, and disconnected from your family, that the way that you’re parenting isn’t reflective of who you envisioned yourself to be.

Chronic stress, life challenges and changes often intensify self-doubt, negative thoughts, and unhealthy coping – whether in the form of isolation, distractions, addictions or toxic relationships. As your energy gets drained or you become more overwhelmed with tasks and decisions to make, it often becomes even harder to handle uncertainty and take steps to get yourself unstuck from an unpleasant situation. How would it feel if you could instead get connected to your internal resources and resilience, see your uncomfortable experiences as opportunities for growth, and rediscover your capability to overcome struggles and move forward?

I believe every client has a unique story that is their own and so I will work to determine what therapy plan would work best for you. There are no generic treatment plans. You are the expert on you. Together we will work to find your pathway to healing and how to turn life back on again, if it feels like its been turned off.

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.
