I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, integrating mindfulness/somatic therapy for trauma and existential therapies. You may be suffering from distressing emotions, anxiety , depression, high levels of shame, fatigue, or other symptoms that have left you feeling disconnected from yourself and others. Many of those I work with also have histories of trauma or grew up in invalidating environments where they were not heard. In therapy, it is often the relationship that heals. I'm here to listen and help you move towards feeling more grounded, creative, and engaged in life.

Are you feeling scared, tense, or anxious? Does your anxiety increase whenever you are reminded about a terrifying event from the past? Or does your anxiety "come out of the blue" sometimes? Do you feel "emotionally numb," "empty," or "detached" from your environment? Are you avoiding people, places, or things that remind you of a terrifying event? I understand that such feelings, as well as the tendency to isolate, can make it seem as if you have no control over your body and your life. Sometimes, the feelings of loss of control may be so intense that you think you are "going crazy," and may even become angry with loved ones.

You may be experiencing: Anxiety , Overwhelm, Fears , Bouts of Depression, Low Self Esteem, Sadness, Guilt and Shame.
You know the pain of feeling stuck. You've done everything you think you 'should' to make the situation better but things still aren't working out the way they should. You don't know what you're doing wrong. Perhaps you can't shake the feeling that there's something else out there for you but duty, responsibility and obligation keep you in the same situation. Maybe you long to do something different but the fear of what might happen stops you from making the changes you really would like to make.

You will learn skills to process your grief/losses, anger, hypervigilance, hypertensitivity, flashbacks, nightmares, fears , panic attacks, depression, anxiety and avoidant behaviours.
PTSD or Trauma related to stressful life changes, psychological / emotional / physical childhood abuse, neglect, rejection, abandonment, exploitation, sexual abuse, incest or witnessing family violence could result in experiencing distorted perceptions, emotions, beliefs and meanings about life. Trauma freezes the traumatic experience in the nervous system creating unhelpful thinking, negative self-assessment, and self-defeating / self-sacrificing behaviours. These conditions can affect your capacity to tolerate and adapt to life's ups and downs; to break old patterns that hold you back; to avoid engaging in risky behaviours/situations; and to avoid re-enacting your past traumas over and over.

Some of the most common concerns I see in my practice include: Anxiety , Depression and other Mood Disorders, Substance Abuse, Disordered Eating, and Relationship Disconnect.
One of my clients described the process of therapy "like finally turning the lights on in a room that had been dark." It takes courage to seek counselling. It means acknowledging (to ourselves and another) that something in our lives is not as we'd like it to be, and committing to let ourselves see, feel, and start to heal those parts of our lives we are no longer willing to keep dark. The joy in my work comes from helping people 'turn the lights on,' and witnessing what happens when they do.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
