About

As a therapist, my intension is to be present and compassionate with whatever challenges my clients face. I also strive to create a relationship with safety, trust and honesty. I work with adults facing a wide variety of challenges, such as relationship difficulties, stress and anxiety, depression, compulsive habits, and other self-defeating behaviours. I call my practice Compassionate Counselling because I believe that warmth, understanding and acceptance are the primary forces of healing.
My training is in Relational Somatic Therapy, which is an approach that focuses on creating safety and trust in the client-therapist relationship. This approach also works to integrate body and mind. I commonly work with trauma and attachment issues. I also help clients navigate communication in relationship, and I facilitate communication classes.
I believe in helping people of all income levels. As such, I am happy to offer my services on a sliding scale. Please do not hesitate to ask about this. I am passionate about self discovery, growth and healing, and would love to hear from you.
