About

The focus of my practice is to treat people who have emotional dysregulation - stress! This can be due to a mood or personality disorder, chronic pain, trauma or complex trauma, or a major life transition. I use practical, evidence based therapies such as DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Clinical Hypnosis, and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to help you fulfill your goals, getting back to living a meaningful, peaceful, productive life.
I focus on what we know about neuropsychology that integrates the brain and body. Bodies manifest stress in so many ways, cognitively, somatically, and behaviourally. Sometimes we don't connect the pieces until we're guided through a therapeutic process that helps us identify and take control of our triggers and issues. This can be a game-changing approach.
We don't have to be whipped around by our emotions, we can control our in-the-moment behaviours, moderate our responses (whether we lash out, or reach for unhealthy instant gratification self-soothe habits), and develop better ways to communicate the intensity of big emotions. I look forward to hearing from you.
