"In her book The Gifts of Imperfection, Bréné Brown says that “owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do”. It is my privilege as a Psychotherapist to provide space and support as individuals dive into the stories of their lives and do the hard work of healing. Trained in EMDR, and other types of evidence-based trauma therapies, I’m grateful to be able to provide an opportunity for individuals to release the emotional, mental, and physical blocks caused by trauma and other difficult life circumstances."

"Everything was okay until it wasn’t any more. You're tired of feeling so stuck, overwhelmed and ashamed all the time and you’re ready to make a change. You’ve probably tried so many times to make these changes on your own but it’s only taken you so far and it’s been nearly impossible to keep from slipping back into old behaviours. This leaves you feeling hopeless, deflated, and weak. But let me tell you something: you’re not supposed to have it all figured out on your own. Really. If you are ready to take back control of your life and you have the desire to do things different -- that’s all you need to get started. "

You've hoped that somewhere inside you there's tremendous potential, but right now you aren't certain how to connect with it. Feeling this way can be especially scary when it impacts your ability to fulfill, or even identify, your heart's desires. Getting in touch with difficult feelings can be transformative, and it often feels more meaningful when you explore them with a trusted therapist.
