Through my own journey of self-discovery, I was drawn to the field of counselling psychology in 2007. Prior to starting in private practice, I spent a decade working in multidisciplinary teams providing mental health, trauma and addictions services, in both residential and outpatient settings. I work with clients to develop the understanding and tools needed to navigate the crisis they are facing and move forward with their lives in a meaningful and more easeful way. I am skilled at helping people build on their innate strengths and resources and to resolve deeper patterns using somatic and EMDR therapy.

Scientifically-proven tools including solution-focused therapy, CBT, DBT, ACT, Mindfulness, and neuroscience therapies like EMDR will help you get results, and faster than traditional "talk" therapy.
I love my work! For over 20 years I've been helping individuals and couples create a life they love with proven, measurable, effective and fast methods to break through old patterns, get past limiting beliefs, and create possibilities they never knew existed. This isn't therapy like you've seen it on TV or in the movies, it doesn't have to take years. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" you deserve to feel better.

With mindfulness, meditation, EMDR, CBT and a focus on solutions I help you transform deeply held and often unconscious limiting beliefs.
Are you suffering with depression or anxiety? Are you feeling like your life is falling apart? Are you struggling with unrealistic fears and worry? You may have suffered childhood trauma, emotional neglect, or other more recent trauma. If you feel stuck in a rut, and find yourself repeating the same old unhealthy patterns, I can help you to make positive change, rapidly change negative, limiting beliefs, and move forward into a more fulfilling, joyful, and satisfying experience of life.

I am trained in EMDR as a way of promoting change.
At the deepest level, you want to be seen, understood and accepted. And then you want partnership and support as you work on changing your life. Are you sad too much? Struggling? Fearful? Do you give yourself a hard time? Perhaps right now is the time -- the time to take yourself on as a project. I work with traumatic grief and loss — with some of the most painful experiences people endure.

I am a Certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization &Reprocessing) therapist, also trained in Progressive Counting, DBT, CBT-Insomnia, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Grief Counselling.
Addiction, eating disorder, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, phobia, and insomnia etc. are most often symptoms, but not the root of the problem. Very often, through childhood and adulthood, many traumatic experiences (such as bullying and abuse) left us with psychological injuries. And we use various above-listed symptoms to deal with experiences that made us feel sad or scared, even for short-term. The real healing/solution is, therefore, to clean the injuries, and develop new coping skills. This approach also applies to unexpected traumatic life experiences, such as accidents, natural disasters, illness, and grief.

EMDR Counsellors
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Duncan or for a Duncan EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counsellors.
