Children are introspective, they have valuable insight and ideas around their strengths, challenges and goals. Children can be collaborative partners in the counselling journey. Encouraging children to use their voice and insight empowers and inspires them for growth and change. I have worked with children aged 3-19 on various issues including abuse, neglect, trauma, family reunification, grief and loss, separation and divorce, self-harm, anxiety, depression, challenging behaviours, screen time, self esteem, self confidence and identity. Each child is unique and deserves a collaboratively established personalized counselling plan.

I have specific training in trauma-informed and narrative approaches, EFT and Gottman couple therapy, family therapy including play and art therapy and attachment-focussed family therapy .
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.

I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and am in my year of supervised practice leading up to licensure. I offer empathic, collaborative care for individuals, couples, or families. I primarily work with people struggling with trauma (in childhood or adulthood), relationships (romantic, family , and platonic), gender issues, identity, life transitions, depression, anxiety, stress, and emotional regulation. I believe strongly in cultural humility, and incorporate each person's unique history. Together, we may establish goals and work towards balance in a safe, respectful, compassionate, and authentic environment.

Besides individual therapy, I offer EFT and Gottman relational therapy and attachment-focused family therapy .
"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.

Have you been going to therapy for a while? Are you struggling with low mood, anxiety, pain, sexual disorders, or other symptoms, that you, or the medical system can't explain? Do you have complicated family dynamics, or require support in your relationship? I may be able to help. Having an intimate understanding of these issues, I offer a unique perspective on various concerns. Working as an emergency first responder and having been deployed to theatres of conflict has helped me to understand the complexity of trauma. I work with individuals, couples and families to help support the journey to inner strength.

I also help people with family of origin issues impacting their current life.
For over twenty years I have worked with people of all ages and stages. If you are unhappy or dissatisfied with life or relationships, struggling with depression or anxiety at home or at work, or feeling alone with guilt or shame, consider personal therapy. It takes a certain degree of courage but once getting started, most clients begin to feel understood and become able to reflect on their situation with some openness and curiosity. Talking about personal issues in a neutral non-judgmental space relieves acute suffering and leads to making changes that create a more comfortable and fulfilling life.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
