These include: depression, anxiety, addiction , loss of identity, grief, spiritual and existential crisis, low self worth, relationships, etc.
My therapeutic approach is Holistic and an integration of therapeutic theories. I work with all the aspects that makes us human beings. We live in a society that traps us in our minds, disconnecting us from rest of ourselves (body, heart, soul, intuition). I help with processing emotions, re-wiring the brain, healing the inner child, integration work, remembering how to listen to your body and its wisdom, connecting to your heart and finding the truth of who you are, and reconnecting with your spirit, which is your internal light source and the only tool that will help you fill the existential void we all struggle with.

Having an addicted person in your life can feel like a nightmare and tear your family apart. In order for addiction to have a chance of healing, we must first address the dynamics of the addict's relationships with their loved ones. Many loved ones unwittingly enable the addiction to continue, sometimes because they want to avoid confrontation and conflict. As the enabling continues, the addiction continues as well-and becomes progressively worse. It is important to understand that enabling an addict is never a loving act-and only leads to more severe consequences as time goes on.

I have extensive experience working in the areas of substance use and addictions, as well as family conflict.
We've all been in a place where we feel desperate for change with no idea how to begin. Many of us seek out counselling to address specific issues while others look for an ongoing therapeutic relationship to serve as a sounding board. Counselling can nurture the development of the necessary tools to make meaningful changes in pursuit of a more balanced and fulfilling life, something everyone deserves to have. Through an eclectic therapeutic approach, I strive to connect with each client in unique ways to best match their strengths and goals. Let's work together to figure out what works best for you to get you where you need to go.

Change is difficult, and sometimes painful. If we decide we want to change some aspect of our life, it can feel frightening and also hopeful and exciting. Maybe we want to address substance use that is problematic, or to heal from some form of trauma, whether physical or emotional. Or perhaps we feel like we are living in a darkness or prison of depression, even suicidality, one that is difficult to explain or describe to anyone in our lives. This is when we need empathy and respectful, collaborative guidance as we walk the path of change. "Change happens through movement, and movement heals."

Since 2006, I have taught mindfulness based interventions to individuals and groups in a community mental health and addictions setting, at health clinics, to health care professionals, and university students, for managing anxiety and stress, preventing depressive relapse, managing chronic pain, preventing addiction relapse, and managing psychosis.
I am interested in working with you to develop healthier coping strategies using mindfulness based approaches to prevent depressive relapse; to manage anxiety, stress and chronic pain, improve sleep, and to prevent burnout. I work collaboratively with you to focus on your goals for change to improve functioning in the meaningful occupations and activities of your life. By learning how to be more mindful during ordinary activities, you can also enjoy your chosen activities more, and live with more ease.

People I work with are having a hard time with the level of enjoyment they are getting from life or are having a hard time with certain circumstances and are stuck . They want something else but are maybe not sure what that is, and how to move towards it. They want to live with a purpose that is meaningful to them. That at the end of each day they can look back and feel good about how that went.
