About

First, my gratitude for your curiosity about my work. The foundation for all of my work is from a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and anti-oppressive lens. I have had the honour of working with a wide range of people who seek to navigate through challenges such as childhood trauma, sexual abuse/violence, depression, intimacy issues, anxiety, and chronic pain. I have witnessed the often beautiful and life-shifting, but complex journey of navigating such issues and the courage it takes to do so. I aim to create a space where this vulnerability is met with compassion, safety, support, and a guiding hand if you feel you need it.
My approach is predominantly grounded in 'feeling' and 'being' practices, these include somatic and sensorimotor theories where we explore the experiences of the body and inner parts. I also make use of 'thinking' and 'doing' practices that include approaches such as Internal Family Systems theory, polyvagal theory, CBT, and narrative therapy.
It is my priority as your counsellor to create a space where we can show up as our authentic selves; where you feel heard, seen, and accepted for where you are at on your healing journey. I invite you to book a free consultation to see if we would be a good fit. You can head to https://www.lightrliving.com/bookings.
