If you have been struggling to find your voice, afraid to express your authentic feelings and connect with your truth; I can help you identify, understand and work through barriers that keep you stuck. You don't have to keep repeating old, unproductive or harmful patterns. Therapy can help you regain your power, identify what's keeping you stuck and help you enjoy renewed relationships with family, friends and co-workers. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, loss, separation, divorce; abuse, family and work pressures, contribute to disharmony, imbalance, confusion and stress.
My approach to therapeutic healing incorporates strength based, narrative, humanistic and holistic healing. My early work in behaviour and learning, infant-child attachment and development and adult attachment; grounds my work in relational healing and includes understanding the role emotions play in body-centred awareness and unconscious patterning.
Power dynamics, systemic oppression and recognizing how society contributes to individual and group disempowerment, also informs my work. As I work to support children, youth, women, men, couples and families, regain their personal power and experience renewed hope in their own strength and wisdom, we join in life's celebration.
