I offer counseling based in Somatic Experiencing (R), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation. By supporting you tune into the wisdom of your own body and emotions, I help you heal deep layers of emotional pain that prevent you from living more fully. I bring 15 years of experience working as a clinical psychologist in Denmark and as a couple and family therapist in Canada primarily supporting those with traumas, emotional dysregulation and relational difficulties. As a meditation teacher, I also offer support to those who wish to explore spirituality and meditation as a tool for self-healing
As a counselor I offer a here-and-now focus in sessions. As you talk about your life we may explore what is happening in your body and help you tune into the wisdom in your body. We may use different grounding exercises, breathing exercises and self-compassion exercises to gently help you release tension and develop a greater sense of inner safety.
For many people it is vulnerable to seek support from a counselor and share things that feel private and difficult to talk about. I am dedicated to offer a collaborative process where you feel respected, attuned to and understood. Your wellbeing and sense of safety in our work together is very important to me. I look foward to getting to know you!
