I believe we all dream to live lives of more and lives of less. More: happiness, peace, achieving meaningful goals, and joy in relationships. The opposite is also true, we seek lives with less. Less: stress, negative coping, anger, and disconnection. Are you one of millions of new Canadians trapped between 2 worlds? Is it time to create your own life? Do you experience anxiety, depression, or relationship issues that never seem to change; growing up "fine but feeling empty", or loveless parenting, do you want to change how you parent your own child--all of which can hold you back or instill panic. Small steps can feel overwhelming.
As a previous Midwife, I approach our work with an attachment-based lens. This helps us hold the work of processing pains while making brave steps forward to creating the new. With 19 years experience, I know the most successful modalities are DBT to learn skills for emotions and people, and EMDR to eliminate negative core beliefs, trauma, and triggers.
Let's connect. It's time for your life to feel like a wonderful creation! Clinical expertise working with those who have experienced 'broken mothering,' as well as professionals working in healthcare, and Adult children of narcissistic parents.

Every week of my job, I see clients experiencing less pain and unconscious fears or self-sabotage, as they gain new skills for life and relationships. I prefer treatments that go beyond just talk therapy. EMDR resolves trauma and rejection at their neurological root and DBT skills teach easy mindfulness for daily life and choice-full behaviours instead of triggered reactions or negative coping.

Therapy can help us all be less triggered. The steps are clear: 1. Identify and process longstanding stuck feelings (whether from trauma or breaks in attachment). 2. Build skills with DBT Therapy, to manage feelings, like grief or overwhelm. 3. Use the internationally recognized, scientific modality, of EMDR to release pain anger and fears. 4. Install positive beliefs that return us to safety.
