Hi, I'm a registered social worker and my practice draws upon various approaches to find a fit that works for you. I work in a way that respects your individuality, where you come from, your inherent skills and value. I aim to help people live joyful, fulfilling lives despite the challenges they may have experienced. I am a certified Brainspotting practitioner, which is a powerful approach that can be used with very little talking if someone prefers not to talk much. Brainspotting is similar to EMDR, but more person-centered, and can quickly and effectively result in change for a variety of emotionally and bodily based conditions.

My journey in the helping field has included working with individuals and families for more than 10 years. I very much welcome the opportunity to work with a diverse array of clients as I work from a multitude of approaches that include anti-oppression, feminist, client-centered, Indigenous and strengths-based. It has always been a passion of mine to work as a clinical social work therapist and therefore have a Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Manitoba. My therapeutic approaches include DBT, other CBT interventions, and Indigenous ways of healing.

Do you want a therapist that understands the importance of how culture is integral to the healing process? As an Indigenous expressive arts therapist, I see traditional Indigenous knowledge as vital as Western therapeutic approaches. When combined respectfully, this creates space for people to be at the center of their healing that is holistic.

Going through tough times is what gets the best of us at times in need. We all deserve to be validated by how we think and feel. Be proud of yourself for having the courage to reach out and tell your story the way you think and feel it. We can work together and sort out what naturally comes to mind in a safe environment. I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) which focuses on the brain's ability to update itself in a positive process. With several years of experience helping folks struggling with trauma, anxiety, and depression, we can work together and develop skills for everyday life.

Hello! I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) who is passionate about supporting clients to navigate challenging life events or mental health concerns. I am also focused on reducing negative stigma of mental health. I have worked in various roles in the social services sector for ten years before beginning my career as a clinical counsellor, including immigration, disability support, outreach counselling, cultural safety, social work and case management. This professional experience combined with lived experience allows me to practice from trauma-informed, intersectional and anti oppressive frameworks.

Would you like to feel more comfortable with yourself? Are you, or you and your partner(s) finding yourselves stuck in a negative cycle of interaction? Are you hoping to revive the once had connection you experienced when you first met, but in turn are constantly fighting or experiencing mismatched sexual desires? From a sex positive framework, I work with individuals, couples and partnerships struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, communication challenges and sexual intimacy, to uncover obstacles that are blocking you from living more freely and authentically!

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.

Hello, thank you for visiting, I am so happy you are here. It takes courage to take the first step towards healing. I specialize in unresolved trauma which can manifest in a variety of ways; intense emotions/overwhelm, numbness, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, shame, feeling stuck or lost. We can also sometimes feel like we are just managing or surviving. Things have been done to us that have affected us and I truly believe we all have the capacity to heal. I believe this starts with safe connection within the therapy room. I work towards creating a safe space with warmth, openness, compassion and understanding.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Winnipeg?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Winnipeg specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
