Anxiety, intrusive thoughts, & emotion or behaviour difficulties can be extremely isolating, leading to feelings of shame and secrecy. Everyday "normal" functions might feel tough. Things as necessary as eating, moving, & relationships might feel confusing, overwhelming, or scary. It may feel like your nervous system is hijacked & you react in unintended ways. One's inner world becomes chaos, while those outside say "it's in your head". Trauma informed therapy recognizes that experiences shape our symptoms/coping strategies. Working together we calm the nervous system, develop new ways to cope, and discover new ways of being.

You are energy. Energy is power. YOU are power. Owning it = Liberation. I am passionate about empowering women to own their value, step into their power & lead revolutions. I also understand how hard this is when navigating toxic, oppressive cultures, whether it be family, work, school or larger society. The result is heart & spirit woundedness and a mixed bag of feelings such as fear, grief, anxiety, depression, confusion, rage and stuckness, to name a few. I hold a safe space for us to co-explore, feel & process your way through it all at a pace that feels right for you.

I practice with a deep appreciation of the boundless human capacity to adapt, grow, and heal. When a person's sense of safety, security and/or belonging has been threatened, they instinctually respond in ways that maximize their chances of survival and safety the best way they know how at the time. However, these responses may limit their ability to engage fully in the world, relate to others, and embody their authentic self. I support clients to examine their adaptations gently and non-judgementally, to cultivate a stronger sense of safety and connection, and to shift from patterns of self-protection into patterns of connection.

Building tools such as mindfulness, creating and maintaining boundaries-being assertive, tracking thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Bringing larger issues/difficulties to be addressed while in therapy such as racial bias, power, and privilege, etc. to help the therapist understand difficulties better.

Slowing down is a prerequisite to the conscious act of looking inwards. It is easy to seek distractions or take part in unhealthy habits when we are feeling unwell. It certainly isn’t as easy to seek help, to ask ourselves important questions, and demonstrate self-love. The way to self-love can have different meanings for each of us, depending on our life experiences. Perhaps it means self-compassion, forgiveness, relaxation, stress management, setting boundaries, or developing assertiveness. Putting the brakes on our busy lives and dedicating time to put ourselves first, can help. I welcome clients at any stage in this process.

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. West Toronto, Toronto Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert.
