Many of my clients seek support following the experience of traumatic life or work events, or the acknowledgement of deep historical pain. I work with a number of populations, with a special focus on supporting first responders and healthcare professionals experiencing burnout and traumatic stress injuries. I have also supported survivors of sexualized violence and abuse for over a decade. Additional areas of practice include grief and loss, self-worth and identity, relationships and communication, and navigating life transitions.
Navigating identity and relationships, coupled with the experience of trauma, burnout, or occupational stress injuries, can contribute to a sense of longing for healing, deeper connections, and more fulfillment in life. As a therapist, my goal is to provide the space for you to feel less alone as we navigate the impact of life's challenges.
I believe that suffering occurs when we feel alone in our experience of overwhelming pain or emotion. For many people, counselling is an opportunity to be accompanied on a path toward healing, growth, and deeper connection with themselves and others. If you are looking for that space and support, I would be delighted to hear from you!
