Sexuality, intimacy, identity. Addiction and recovery. Relationships and connection. Grief and loss . So many of us wonder how to live in our skin comfortably. Who are you, and how do you want to live? The next question is how to bring that authenticity into your life, your relationships, your communication. Sometimes our bodies don't connect with our hearts and minds. Erotic and sexual diversity is a part of the human experience. If you're struggling with shame, belief patterns that no longer serve, or wondering if you're alone - there is hope.

When we learn the skills to walk through the "dark woods" of grief & trauma, we develop the capacity to hold the fullness of life.
We are conditioned to turn away from or suppress our pain, and we are often encouraged to ‘stay positive’ or ‘look on the bright side.’ I believe that turning away from the pain allows violence to continue in the world, as pain unprocessed soon becomes either so deeply internalized that we get sick, or projected on those we deem “Other.” In order to return to our fullest joy, aliveness, connection with each other and love for life we must have a space to express and process our grief . My aim is to provide a container for grief & trauma to metabolize in a healthy way so you can return to a feeling of full aliveness & well-being.

I specialize in child and adult trauma, loss and grief , PTSD, addictions, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, life transitions, family-of-origin patterns, and crises of meaning, My approach is a gentle combination of Jungian psychodynamic therapy as well as attachment based CBT, DBT, and humanistic psychology.
I have been privileged to work as a psychotherapist for almost thirty years and continue to be in awe of the strength and resilience and wisdom inherent in each person I meet. My role as a psychotherapist is to help you access what is inside you and heal from what has prevented you from becoming the best version of yourself. Together we will transform loss and trauma and life transitions into new hope and possibilities for a life that is psychologically rich and rewarding. Therapy is a relationship with yourself where you re-discover and cultivate the real you. It's about wellness and vitality and creating a life you love.

I envision life as a journey that is influenced by our experiences, our relationships with others, and our personal, societal, and cultural stories. As a therapist, I believe my role is to join you on your journey for a stretch, as a kind of wilderness guide who may be able to point out unrecognized phenomena, different perspectives, and highlight your strengths and values as they relate to your journey. The goals and direction are yours, and together, we will create a plan that's right for you. Coming to counselling is hugely courageous; I commend you on beginning your search for a therapist who will be a good fit for your goals.

We are living through a strange and difficult time. Although it might not always feel that way, the good news is that you don't have to go it alone. If you are feeling unfocused, on an emotional roller coaster, unmotivated, and disconnected for yourself and others, I can help. Using engaging, effective, and holistic techniques, we will work together to help you find more resilience, emotional stability, focus, and meaning in your life. My trauma-informed counselling and coaching helps you get off the roller coaster, find out who you really are, what you actually want from life, and where you want to go next.

"TRUE POWER DIMINISHES NEITHER SELF OR OTHER" (Mariah Moser). To connect to that power requires the guidance, courage and commitment to understand whats keeping you trapped in self destructive patterns. If you're feeling overwhelmed, numb, afraid or angry, I can help. If you're on the edge of making changes in your life but are feeling stuck, I can help you cross that threshold. In sessions, my intention is to build trust and a sense of safety so that we can explore the challenges that you are facing.

If you have been dealing with anxieties or have had traumas in your life, I can help you to feel calmer, freer and more at peace. Does any of this sound familiar to you? You are often anxious, overwhelmed or nervous. At night, you stay up thinking and worried, or in the morning, you wake up already anxious about the day. You avoid meeting others because of social anxiety. You get triggered by certain people or situations. Either you get angry and aggressive easily, or you become very nervous and afraid. You have had panic attacks. Living with anxieties due to past traumas can be very exhausting. Let me help you!

Accepting New Clients / Available for supervision (not practicum students). People today are making their mental health a priority. When someone reaches out for counselling, it's usually because of a problem they want to work through, something they hope to change, or an area of their life they desire to grow and develop. My passion is to support & walk alongside my clients at these times in their lives. Counselling is very much a collaborative process. I see my role as creating a therapeutic environment that feels comfortable & safe so clients can explore their lives more fully and come to a greater understanding of who they are.

Today I help clients overcome barriers such as anxiety, panic, depression, grief , and anger.
Like many people, I grew up in an environment where we didn't talk about our struggles and emotions. From an early age, I learned to keep the difficult things inside and deal with my emotions on my own. In 1999, I became a crisis phone counsellor and realized that I wasn't the only one who had had this kind of experience. I realized that a lot of people felt the way I did and kept their emotions inside. For the first time, I learned how healing it could be to share struggles with supportive people.

My ideal client would be someone who has been feeling stuck and down on him/herself for quite a while. Even though he/she has been trying various self-help techniques and advice from well meaning friends, the feelings of stress/anxiety/discouragement/ grief /pain/overwhelm have become unbearable; a history of trauma only adds to all of this. What she/he wants most is to get back to living a full life without being dragged down by doubts, fears, and insecurities.

Grief Counsellors
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
