Accepting Clients - I am a somatic therapist supporting older youth & adults healing from symptoms of anxiety and depression, the stressors of daily living, processing trauma related to relationships and family, and navigating life transitions. The people who seek me out are often yearning for authentic living and deep connection. They may be in search of their identity or life purpose. Some may be uncovering limiting relational patterns and want to break the cycles that no longer serve them in order to live more fulfilling lives.
My approach is relationally orientated and has been described as “curious, gentle, and kind”. My empathic listening, humour, and warm nature is central to my practice. I support folks in reconnecting with their inner wisdom and boundary building to strengthen their resiliency and transformation; leading to greater peace and satisfaction in life.
Opening-up to someone can be a vulnerable undertaking. I aim to support you in your self-knowledge of trust and safety, and we will work at a pace that feels comfortable to you. To find out more about my practice and to see if we are a good fit, please call for a free consultation. I look forward to connecting with you!

Somatic-Attachment Therapy considers an attachment perspective coupled with the neurophysiological workings of the brain and body. I work with the story of the body to support the full expression of your nervous system and I pay attention to how relationships have formed your perceptions of yourself, others, and the world in the context of the work we are doing together.

With somatic-based therapies you can expect therapy to be an embodied experience. This means part of our work together will be working with the body (sensations, imagery, gestures, etc.), and slowing down to fully process and integrate the material that is arising. This will support the regulation of your nervous system and trauma resolution.
