I have experience working with numerous issues, including: anxiety, religious trauma and spiritual deconstruction, relationship issues, Christian faith issues, and embodiment.
Being human is beautifully weird, and painfully difficult. As a therapist, I am less interested in providing pat answers about this human experience, and more interested in creating shame-free spaces where we can lean into its mysteries and learn from it. I believe that therapy can be a transformational experience where we experience change as we are held and seen by another, and it is my great privilege to walk with those who are willing to share their stories with me.

Oftentimes we feel ‘stuck’ as though no movement forward is possible, or that our story is too complex to navigate and find healing from. Through my own experience, and in journeying alongside others, I have come to believe that freedom and life, even in the midst of significant pain and loss is possible. My clinical approach is unique, as I seek to incorporate the spiritual journey of the client, as understood through a Christian worldview, into the therapeutic process. I work using a parallel process of deepening your understanding of Self, and of God as you begin to reflect on your story.

My philosophy of counselling is strongly influenced by my Christian worldview and my motivation to help others. I draw primarily from Person-centered, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and existential therapeutic approaches. In my practice I work with youth and adults to treat depression, anxiety, past trauma, relationship conflict, career change, and other life transitions. An overarching theme of my practice is working alongside clients to help them gain a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their lives.

There are things going on in your life that are a bit out of your wheelhouse to manage right now. Whether it's anxiety, overwhelm, change or wondering who you actually are, you know that you need help. And yet...you're supposed to be the strong one...how would the people in your life react if they knew that you need help too? Which brings up another thing...you're tired of giving to everyone else. You've noticed that you just end up feeling empty and resentful when you do this. It's time to change.

The concept of our “self” can be approached in numerous ways. In my practice, I see our consciousness and actions as driven by parts. These parts can operate with various outcomes with a baseline of wanting to do good in your life; however, in different situations, these parts can do more harm than we want. The mind and body are such complex systems that it would be foolish to think that a single method will work for everyone. My practice sees a combination of theories including Internal Family Systems and Narrative Therapy.

We are a specialized team of mental health professionals providing high-quality counselling and trauma therapy to individuals and couples. We know that talk therapy is beneficial, but we realized that many of our clients’ problems require a deeper and more integrative approach. Stressful and traumatic experiences leave lasting impacts on peoples’ minds and their bodies, which can make them feel stuck in the same patterns. By integrating neurobiologically-based therapies such as EMDR, OEI and Somatic Experiencing into talk therapy (CBT, narrative), our team specializes in helping people break free from discouragement and overwhelm.

Healing is rarely a steady slope and predictable process, yet I hold hope that everyone has the resources to work towards experiencing freedom even in deep pits of pain. I've witnessed that the relationships we have with ourselves, others and God can be powerfully impactful. In my experience relationships with others are often the site of our deepest hurt. However, it's also safe relationships where you can show up without shame, that create space where we experience healing. I hope to help others discover their strengths and find beauty in what feels like life’s ashes. So what happens when you walk into my office?

Christian Counsellors

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

Therapists and clients don’t need to share the same belief system or background to be able to work effectively together, but a therapist whose training includes a focus on cultural competence may be better able to form a therapeutic bond with individuals from a range of backgrounds, as they will have experience in tailoring their approach to each client—and will be prepared to acknowledge and consider the effects of culture, religion, and other factors on each individual.

Why is it important to find a therapist sensitive to Christian values?

Each person brings a unique history and background to therapy, making it important to find a licensed therapist who is trained in a broad range of treatment modalities. In addition, for people who grow up in a faith tradition that strongly influences the way they conduct their everyday life, finding a therapist who understands or shares that background can ease the disclosure of sensitive information and facilitate the therapeutic process. For some clients, a Christian therapist is likely to incorporate faith-based principles into emotional healing techniques.

How do I recognise an effective Christian therapist?

Christian therapists are licensed mental health professionals—holding a master’s or doctoral degree in medicine, nursing, psychology, counseling, social work, or marriage and family therapy—who are also familiar with Christian beliefs and values. They have an understanding of the importance that Christian principles play in the lives of individuals and families, which allows them to be especially sensitive to the kinds of struggles that can affect daily functioning. Like all effective therapists, a Christian therapist will have undergone training and certification in a variety of treatment modalities that help people through crises and enable them to master the challenges of life.

Why might someone feel comfortable with a Christian therapist?

While training, qualifications, and experience are always important, research has long established that a strong alliance between client and therapist is a major contributor to therapeutic success. An alliance is likely to be strengthened with a therapist who not only is responsive to questions and concerns but also shares a client’s faith and values. Sensitivity to spiritual matters as well as to everyday struggles can provide a welcome sense of safety and contribute to the bond between client and therapist, both of which support the therapeutic process.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Christian therapists?

The directory of Christian therapists includes professionals who have shared their background in their profiles. However, not all therapists choose to disclose this information, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. The directory also shows therapists who indicate that they have extensive experience working with Christian clients, regardless of their own background or religious affiliation.
