About

It can be really hard to prioritize yourself, especially if you are a parent or caregiver. Caregivers need care, too, but many things can get in the way of this: lack of supports (systemic and personal), an individualistic culture, guilt and shame, lack of modelling (i.e. "how do I even do that?"), unresolved trauma & attachment issues, burnout & time poverty. I use traditional talk therapy and Sensorimotor (body-focused) Psychotherapy, Art Therapy & EMDR to help you slow down and attend to yourself. I believe that a joyful, creative life where you honour your own needs and deeply care for others at the same time is possible.
Parents: Stress & Burnout. I've worked as a therapist with children for the past 10 years, and over that time I've become passionate about helping parents who are feeling challenged by what their children are going through. I'm especially interested in helping adoptive, foster and step-parents, but I do work with all types of parents and caregivers.
Adults: Grief & Loss. In particular, I'm drawn to helping those experiencing infertility or pregnancy loss. However, I do have experience supporting people through many different kinds of loss.
