Announcement icon I continue to accept new clients during COVID-19. Until further notice all sessions will be offered via online video.
I have nine years of experience working with individuals with chronic stress, anxiety, perfectionism, self criticism, depression, and burn out among frontline workers. I support individuals through one-on-one counselling and mindfulness groups. I work in collaboration with individuals and their support team in order to create a holistic treatment plan that is well suited for their needs.
I offer an eclectic strength-based approach, drawing from a variety of evidence-based therapeutic modalities depending on the unique needs of those I am working with in my practice. This includes: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness practice and Motivational Interviewing.
I continue to seek ongoing training and education. I am a Qualified Teacher in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) (U. of Massachusetts Medical School) and Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) (Center for Mindful Eating, NH). I am also a teacher-in-training in Mindfulness Self-Compassion (MSC) (U. of San Diego Medical School).

Mindful Self Compassion (MSC)

Mindful Self Compassion is an 8 week plus 1 day retreat program that aims to support individuals in cultivating greater wellbeing and resilience amidst the ups and downs that life presents us. You will learn a variety of techniques to deepen the wisdom to meet your experience as it actually is, rather than through the lens of past experience or future fears that often lead to unskilful reactive behaviour. You will also learn techniques to: meet difficulty with kindness and understanding, befriend your flaws and inner critic, transform shame through compassion, and foster hope for wellbeing toward yourself and others.
