I work with people experiencing the struggles of being human in our modern world. People who know anxiety and alienation, and those grappling with grief of all kinds. Maybe you're cracking under the pressure of impossible societal expectations. Maybe you're navigating big changes, losses and overwhelm. Or maybe you've built relationships that no longer nourish you or maybe never did. I imagine that whatever brings you here, you're wanting wellness on your terms. I can support you in exploring new ways of being true to yourself, in a space where play, humour, and lightness are always welcome.
Together we can take steps towards coming to know the fear that holds you back, the confusion that blurs your vision, and the hurts that drain your energy. With gentle presence, we can befriend these areas of uncertainty and uncover what possibilities emerge when blocks are removed and we return home to acceptance of what is and curiosity for the world.
I know what it's like to be faced with a life that seems to have fallen apart. You don't need to find your way through it alone. Letting in support can take time and courage. I look forward to hearing from you when the time is right. I invite you to visit my website to learn more.

Grief is a natural response to big changes including job loss, illness or injuries, bereavement, graduations, separations, environmental loss, and even healing. It's difficult to fully feel it as it seems that doing so condones the unwelcome change and will keep you stuck in loss forever. Neither is true. I can support you to feel into grief and uncover the potent life force on the other side.

I practice somatic, relational Gestalt Therapy. In our sessions, I'll often bring your attention to your experience in the "here and now," the only time and place where change is possible. We'll explore how memories and beliefs are held in the body, and experiment with what else is possible. We can use role play, art, and movement to bring hidden aspects into awareness.
