It is my belief that as humans we are biologically wired to heal; each of us already holds the internal resources needed to grow and thrive. As a counsellor, I would be honoured to walk alongside you as a guide in uncovering these resources, offering warmth and a grounding presence alongside evidence-based interventions to assist you on this journey. I offer an integrated approach to counselling, utilizing attachment-based, emotion-focused, and body-based practices alongside internal parts work in my practice. I believe it is important to create space for the body, mind, and spirit to be present in our work together.

Your current circumstances don't dictate where you'll end up. They serve as a starting point for change. We all have the potential to move forward, sometimes having support is the key to getting there. My counselling approach is collaborative and straightforward with a touch of humour. Using a blend of your personal experiences and life context with evidence-based practices such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and family systems we pinpoint your strengths and build positive coping skills to help you reach your goals.

I work with individuals and families who are dealing with substance use problems. These clients may be at the beginning of their journey-questioning their relationship with alcohol, drugs (or other forms of addiction, such as gaming or gambling). Or, they may have made a decision to change their addictive patterns. I also work with families who have been affected, and in some cases, deeply hurt, by a loved one's addiction. The issues and goals might vary, but all of my clients need compassion, understanding, and helpful, practical guidance. I am proud to offer this type of support to the individuals and families I work with.

I offer an individualized approach to adapting & growing with life challenges. The primary concerns I work with include: traumatic or stressful experiences, grief & loss & the symptoms of depression, anxiety, & insomnia. I begin with learning what is important & meaningful to you, clarify your present concerns & also how you will know when our work is done(!) Therapy takes time, energy & commitment but does not go on forever! I find it most effective to meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis until we evaluate our work is done, or a less frequent schedule makes sense. Note: I work only with adults in individual or group therapy.

Have you spent your entire life trying to get over your childhood? Do you deal with crippling anxiety, PTSD, crushing depression, severe sleep problems, or struggle with ADHD? My professional area of interest, and my expertise, is in helping people deal with the aftermath of trauma. I offer neurofeedback in-office. Neurofeedback reduces or eliminates symptoms that block your ability to live life to the fullest. Severe trauma--residential school survivors and their families, war veterans, those with histories of childhood abuse--may need two to three 20-session blocks.

Our thoughts, our emotions, and our bodies can sometimes become overwhelmed. When this happens, it can impact many areas of our lives. The good news is, there are powerful and proven tools that can help us to heal. I believe that we heal by gaining a sense of connection and wholeness. The foundation of my approach is building a strong working relationship. This involves respect, trust, and compassion. Gentleness is also very important to me.
