I incorporate the different methodologies in counselling therapy as they work for the client, including EMDR, Mindfulness using Ego State, IFS, CBT and other approaches.
If you are dealing with a recent trauma or trauma in the past that you believe may be holding you back, if you are sad or constantly anxious and worried, or if you are feeling that life is pulling you down and you are not sure how to get back on track, may be trauma, old beliefs and habitual patterns are keeping you from finding enjoyment in your life. These things are challenging to deal with on your own sometimes but by building awareness and working through them with support and building inner resources you can live life with more peace and enjoyment.

The foundation of my practice is Relational Somatic Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy (or "parts" work).
Providing a felt sense of ease and presence, attuned listening and a container for deep work are my offerings to you. The symptoms we experience (like anxiety and depression) are often due to unresolved traumatic stress in the body. By slowly and gently tracking sensation, movement impulses and images we learn to listen to what our body is telling us, and we return to who we truly are. We begin by exploring what is and is not working in your daily life and relationships, and what you are noticing in your body, thoughts, and feelings.

In my experience with clients, EMDR and Internal Family Systems (IFS) are powerful, evidence-based treatments that can facilitate personal healing and transformation. These approaches are more than traditional "talk therapy". You might be asking yourself, "Why do I feel lonely, empty, anxious or depressed?" My work is to explore what unconscious forces may be at work that are preventing you from thriving. Trauma can get "frozen" within neural networks which can repeatedly and painfully trigger us. EMDR and IFS support an adaptive and natural processing of any "unfinished business".

And the lens through which I approach our work together is informed by attachment science, family systems theory, mindfulness, Emotionally Focused therapy (EFT), and is both somatically and transpersonally based.
We all deserve peace, to feel connection with others, and to feel a sense of trust in ourselves and the world. Stress, anxiety, relationship struggles, depression, trauma, major life changes and family issues are among the challenges that can get in the way of us experiencing life the way we would like to. And we all have ways of coping with those stresses. But what happens when those strategies don’t seem to be working anymore? I bring a compassionate and patient approach to our work together. My approach is rooted in my sincere belief, in our ability to heal. No matter the struggle, there is always hope.

Are you wondering if you or your child might be autistic, have ADHD, or be neuro-divergent in some way? Do you already know you are neuro-divergent and need support finding an affirming way forward? Our work together can focus on any area of importance for you, including parenting, gender, relationships, experiences of oppression, trauma, grief, and life transitions. I appreciate diversity in all forms, and welcome clients exploring neuro-diversity, gender-creativity, sexual orientation, and pathological demand avoidance.

Would you like to understand your triggers and what core beliefs might be contributing to your stress, anxiety or depression? For many, the current world crisis is amplifying their pain, stress, grief, fear and despair. As children, we were not taught how to cope constructively with stress and strong emotions so naturally, without the skillset, many people are feeling lost. By learning the skills and gaining capacity, more freedom and joy is possible. Regardless of circumstances, there is always a way to move forward, one step at a time.

Life can be really hard sometimes, for lots of different reasons, and sometimes what makes it feel even harder, is feeling like we are alone in it. Finding someone to talk with who is compassionate, authentic, understanding, and non-judgemental can give you a safe place to explore feelings and thoughts that may feel too frightening or overwhelming to unpack on your own. Maybe you know what isn't working, but you don't know how to change it. Maybe you just want to feel hope again. Or maybe you just want someone to be a witness or companion on your journey. You do not have to go through hard things alone.

Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs), in our tender years, whether they were caused by abuse, neglect or chronic parental mis-attunement are not only impediments to thriving in one's life, they increase the risk of serious physical disease in later life. Whatever hurts inside is simply asking to be known and loved. I believe that the difficulties and traumas of life need never define us as human beings. Rather, I believe that when safety, skillful caring and authentic connection are finally available for us, these very traumas can become the doors through which we discover our own unique gifts, talents and power as individuals.

Taking the time to search for healing and meaning can feel daunting. The opportunity to reflect in a space that is free of judgment can allow us to tap into a sense of healing and vitality from within. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the words for an experience or emotion, making it difficult to accept their impact. Collaborating with a counsellor can help us identify and give voice to the parts of ourselves that we have learned to silence or ignore.
