About

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.
My practice is informed the creative art therapies, Internal Family Systems (an evidence-based approach that allows us to deeply explore the rich contradictions that makes up the many parts of us) and mindfulness based practices. I am trauma informed, sex positive, anti-oppressive, LGBTQ2S+ positive, and relational. 
I offer a caring and safe place to open up and explore in a way that is client-centred, collaborative and often playful. I have extensive experience working with clients from a with range of experiences and backgrounds. I'm comfortable working with a range symptoms including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, co-dependancy and identity questions.
