Only within a non-judgemental, empathetic, and warm therapeutic space, can people feel safe to open up and be vulnerable; I hope to create just that for my clients. I am a person-centred counsellor that welcomes collaborative dialogue with my clients as they discover progress, determination, growth, and celebration. Whilst borrowing from various therapeutic modalities to guide my work, I am an avid believer in the power of self-compassion, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Inner Child work. I am also trained in providing Emotionally-Focused Therapy for couples and individuals.

I provide individual, couples, and family counselling using a variety of techniques, including person-centred therapy, emotionally focused therapy, and cognitive-behavioural therapy, among others.
Clarity. Understanding. Acceptance. These are all things we want for ourselves but, occasionally, the mirror of our mind becomes clouded and tarnished by anxiety, depression, trauma, and a variety of other life struggles. This can distort how we see ourselves, people around us, and the potential for our future. We can work together to shift your view, restore clarity and hope for the present, and bring new possibilities for a transformed future into focus.

My therapeutic approach is based on the importance of cultivating strong and secure attachments and is informed by the Neufeld Developmental Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
I am passionate about working with individuals, children, parents, and families. I enjoy working with children with special needs and I am drawn to working with children who have experienced loss or trauma, including fostering and adoption. I love helping parents feel equipped and empowered to connect with, and parent, their children. I also love seeing hurting relationships healed and restored with both adults & children. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where connection can flourish leading to change.

The effects of the last few years have caused an additional strain on marriages and families. Relationships can fall into negative patterns of disconnection and neglect. It can be devastating when one feels their partner is not there for them. I assist couples struggling with an emotional or physical affair, a life transition, or who feel stuck in their current patterns. I recommend pre-marital counselling as a beneficial way to address any potential challenges. I implement the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused or Relational Life Therapy depending on your needs as a couple.

I use Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples, a rebuilding of attachment connections.
No one ever said it’s easy being a thinking, feeling, spiritual being. You are not alone in feeling anxious, depressed, grieved, angry or disconnected in a relationship. Most of what troubles us is caused by a perceived need to protect ourselves from injury. Fortunately, we all have resources for healing. In a compassionate and safe environment, I enable you to adopt an accepting, compassionate, and curious relationship with your emotions and behaviours. With this foundation of healing and renewal, we become agents of our own healing. We steer our ship with confidence and vision, even when the seas are tossing and turning.

My therapeutic approach is deeply informed by attachment theory, emotionally focused therapy, and existential themes involving meaning & purpose.
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.

You're likely here searching for a therapist because you're struggling with something or someone. Perhaps anxiety or depression have become too much to manage on your own. Maybe a relationship has become the source of pain. You may be struggling against a part of yourself that has you thinking or acting in ways you'd like to modify. At Sojourn we believe everyone has the capacity for change and positive growth.

Socrates said "to find yourself, think for yourself". Our thoughts shape our perceptions and often affects how we may respond to experiences. We have been conditioned for approval, acceptance and worthiness, how we internalize this programming into our conscious and subconscious minds can lead to self doubt, self criticism and self sabotaging choices. These thoughts become patterns and beliefs that often get played out in how we function in relationships. Learn how to honor your unmet needs, to find healthier ways of managing these conflicts and ways to deepen your connection to self. Awaken yourself to new possibilities.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
