Emotionally Focused Therapy is a tried and tested modality.
You’re probably feeling so alone and hopeless right now. The relationship you once looked to for strength and joy is beginning to feel like a source of pain and disconnection. You feel like you have tried everything that you know to make your relationship better. You’ve tried talking about your issues but somehow always end up spiraling into a fight- leaving you feeling frustrated, disconnected and more hurt each time. You worry about where your relationship is headed if something doesn’t change. I want you to know you are in the right place. You can transform your disconnection and negative communication patterns into connection.

I believe understanding origins is key - did your family talk about feelings, or sweep things under the rug? Were your parents distant, or demanding? With a blend of Attachment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, you'll develop a clear understanding of how your life experiences are linked to the issues you're facing.
You're here because you're tired of the anxiety, the pain and stress of day to day life, and you want better for yourself and your loved ones. You're ready for change, and now you're looking for the tools and guidance to make it happen. Together, we'll get to the root of your pain to create meaningful change so you can start feeling better. In a safe space free from judgment, you'll figure out why those feelings or patterns keep showing up in your life, where they come from, and how to create positive, long lasting changes that work for you.

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I weave together approaches from Emotionally Focused Therapy, depth psychology and soul-oriented wisdom traditions from all over the world.
We all experience times in life when we feel overwhelmed, anxious or in grief. Life's challenges can sometimes take a toll on our sense of well-being. This is especially true during this Covid-19 pandemic with its accompanying social distancing, isolation and stress. When anxiety, fear, grief or relationship difficulties arise you may feel even more vulnerable. Therapy offers an opportunity to explore your feelings, uncover insights and develop greater self-awareness and compassion. Together we can create new coping skills that will support you and your loved ones during these exceptional times.

My clinical orientation is through mindfulness, somatic experiencing and emotionally focused, holistic frameworks for both individuals and families.
Therapy is a collaborative journey and you are the best expert in your own life. I work with Individuals and Couples who find themselves stuck in familiar, yet unhelpful, patterns. Sometimes this can feel confusing. How did we get here? What are we doing? Why don’t I feel like myself? Sometimes things can feel more desperate - how do we get out of here?! Why do I feel so afraid? Sometimes it’s stubborn health issues that don’t seem to have a medical explanation. Noticing and moving through the stuck energy that our bodies hold can be a powerful step towards healing - both in relationship to ourselves and our loved ones.

In addition to my Master's in Psychotherapy, I've trained for an additional year in Emotionally Focused Therapy - proven to be the best therapy for helping couples break negative cycles.
I help couples who aren't satisfied in their relationships, and individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression. The clients I see are hurting, but they're capable, smart, and ready to break free from negative patterns. If you're struggling in your relationship, maybe you've tried voicing your concerns but the communication in your relationship just isn't working. You want to feel connected again, instead of holding back your concerns and growing further apart.

I hear you ~ I believe in you ~ I care. I believe that therapy allows people to share their stories and feel their emotions in an environment that is safe and considers their unique needs. I strive to validate people’s emotions (because they are understandable), to highlight their strengths (because sometimes people can’t see them) and to build hope (because it can be restored). My approach draws from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and others but my true focus is on adapting my approach to suit every person and their goals.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Hamilton Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
