I am also trained in Group-Based Attachment Intervention ( Attachment-based parenting therapy) and Brainspotting (a newer alternative to EMDR).
Choosing to seek help takes courage. The decision to reach out often comes after time stuck in unsatisfying patterns, recognizing the need for change. Curiosity is a wonderful tool for looking at patterns and exploring possibilities without shame or self-blame. My practice is a safe space to be curious about yourself, your experiences, your hopes and potential. I have worked with a wide variety of ages and life circumstances, first in New York City and now in Manitoba. My specializations include: family challenges, depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions.

Tailored to your unique needs, I use an integrative therapeutic approach focused on attachment-based interventions, and therapies such as: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) .
I am currently accepting new clients. Is emotional pain getting in the way of living your best life? What needs attention in your life? Where are you stuck? Pain is our mind and body sharing a message with us. I want to help you unpack this message and change your relationship with your pain. I want to help you move from being stuck to being curious about what it is telling you. I want to help you discover what makes you stronger and what matters most to you in life. We are always interpreting the present through the lens of our past. Every stressor in our present has a history. Understanding these connections is key.

My approach in therapy is client-centred, trauma-informed, and attachment-based .
"Why me? Why do I need to feel the pain?" Most of my clients asked some similar questions at the beginning of their therapy. They may be disconnected from others and being isolated. Therapy can offer them opportunities to make sense of their experiences, understand more about how things had happened, and rebuild relationships among themselves and others. During the therapeutic journey, my clients may take different perspectives to make sense of their experiences and learn new life skills to cope with their distress. They may feel more comfortable feeling uncomfortable and able to make new choices.

Therapy is an opportunity to look at self and understand more about your life. At times, we encounter things that feel overwhelming or unbearable and therapy allows you to have the opportunity to have someone to support you in this struggle. My belief is that the therapeutic relationship allows a person to move through these times with more ease by having someone at your side to face these difficulties.

My work is person-centered and influenced by CBT, Attachment-based , Narrative, and Interpersonal Neurobiology among others, but tailored to fit your individual needs.
It takes courage to reach out for help when life gets hard. Maybe you’ve made efforts to resolve a stress or trauma, only to find that it was a temporary fix. This can be a tiring cycle. My goal is to provide you and your loved ones with a trusted, safe space where we can explore together the root of the issue in order to heal from your past and find hope for the future. I would be honored to walk with you in this process. You do not have to walk this journey alone.

People are wired to desire closeness within relationships. However, early trauma and deep seated disappointment train our brains to use strategies to decrease painful emotional experiencing. When nobody was there to bring comfort or teach coping strategies, people either grow up to isolate or become over involved in the lives of others. Therapy explores not just the storyline but more importantly, the emotions and meanings beneath. In therapy people want to strike that balance of feeling cared for and understood by the therapist, while also being gently challenged to risk change and the discomfort that comes with growth.

Therapy can help us to connect with ourselves and others, find meaning, joy, love, acceptance, playfulness and peace of mind. If you are recovering from trauma, if you are stuck or struggling, therapy can create a safe space to work through painful and difficult emotions and experiences in order to live better and feel better. I value creativity, compassion and collaboration. My approach is drawn from attachment theory, narrative therapy, trauma-informed somatic therapies, mindful self-compassion and relational therapy.

We all get stuck sometimes. When we feel overwhelmed and alone it takes courage to reach out and talk to someone. I believe that counselling can offer a light in the darkness - a safe place to make sense of what we’re going through. In a confidential space, with a compassionate counsellor, we can reflect on our experiences and gain invaluable insight about ourselves and our place in the world. As we begin to make sense of ourselves, we cease to feel so powerless and instead begin to feel strong and capable.

Together we will work on both building your child's protective factors and responding to the problems impacting their potential.

Attachment-based Counsellors

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
