Are you feeling lost and stuck? Do you believe that your "life compass" has stopped working and not sure how to navigate your life moving forward? Are you feeling unheard or having a hard time expressing how you feel at the moment? Do you believe that your unique traumatic experiences have taken away your resilience and ability to effectively cope without relying on temporary solutions which down the road may have contributed to confusing you more, and making your relationships more challenging? You are not alone if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mental health challenges trauma has brought into your life.

Recovery from pain is possible. Let's start together from understanding YOUR pain and creating a path to wellness that is unique for YOU. I am fascinated by the brain and body connection and the immense possibilities that arise when we open ourselves to learning and understanding how various psychoneurobiological mechanisms work, how our environments and circumstances have shaped us and continue to do so, and how we can harness the power of that understanding towards change. Studies indicate that many chronic pain conditions are often not the result of structural causes, but of psychoneurobiological processes that can be reversed.

Experiencing relationship related anxiety can be really painful. In romantic relationships and friendships, the fear of abandonment may make you feel disconnected from yourself. Once you begin to uncover your true self, you will find that you were born with freedom, integrity, joy, and love; you’ve simply been conditioned to forget these gifts. As a queer trauma therapist, I understand how childhood traumas and spiritual traumas can impact one's intimate relationships. However, love is a practice. My relational approach to healing trauma will help you feel worthy and self-full.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or burnt out, finding yourself on edge, down, and doubting yourself? You may worry about things you have said or done "wrong" in a day. It's hard to say no - to find the time and energy to take care of your needs. You may feel guilty more often than not. There may be a sense, even when things are seemingly going well, that you may have overlooked something or something "bad" is around the corner. Do you question if you're the problem - that something is wrong with you and that you just can't hack it? Whether others know or it or not, you just don't feel that comfortable in your own skin.

You’re feeling stuck in your current career, maybe even burnt out. Every workday, it’s harder to get out of bed. You long for something more and can almost hear a little voice inside you whispering that you deserve it. You’ve tried changing jobs but still feel like a square peg in a round hole. The idea of change feels overwhelming, partly because you overthink and lose sight of how you really feel. You long for a job where your strengths will shine and you can live up to your potential, but you aren’t sure if there’s a job like that out there for you. You have a nagging worry that you will never find a place where you belong.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness.

Have you been living with increased anxiety and stress, flooded by recurring intrusive thoughts and worries that feel like they’re on a never-ending cycle? Anxiety, OCD, and panic can have a strong influence over our behaviours and thoughts, which may look like worrying, apprehension about the future, discomfort in social situations, or feeling uneasy in new environments. These may result in avoiding important activities, people, and places that mean a lot to you.
