It can feel so scary and isolating to face all the challenges life throws at you, but you don’t have to face them alone. I understand how vulnerable it can feel to reach out for help, so whether this is your first time reaching out for support or your tenth, please take the time to admire your strength. You deserve a space where you can feel validated, seen and heard. Trauma can come in many forms and everyone holds on to it differently. Let's work together to lighten the load you've been carrying for so long and determine what a meaningful life looks like for you.

I have substantial experience treating complex trauma .
One of the consequences of stress is re-experiencing it in the mind and body, leaving us depleted and disconnected from life. Intense reactions can be confusing and distressing. Making sense of our experiences, putting them in perspective, and changing unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving, and coping increases our resilience. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and have a particular interest in survivors of sexual violence and exploitation; first responders, frontline workers, military, veterans and their families; survivors of adverse childhood experiences; workplace stress and life transitions; and older adults.

My approach is informed by extensive experience and training, and I have specialization in Trauma , Addiction, and Mental Health.
Thank you for visiting my profile. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. Reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, or a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can comfortably uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from living the life you deserve. My goal is to provide a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma -informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.

We’re all doing the best we can to get by. In that process, we can develop perspectives and behaviours that initially served to protect us and now, at times, trap us or keep us from living fully. Maybe you’ve had experiences that have problematically influenced how you view yourself, others, and the world, or you find your body is reacting to everyday situations in ways you don’t understand and feel you can’t control. Therapy can help you to develop compassion towards and accept yourself, understand how some of your past experiences may be influencing you, and address trauma related body responses and beliefs.

As a trauma focused Art Therapist I use movement, meditation, and art making to enable a different kind of relationship with difficult experiences.
If you're feeling lost, exhausted, overwhelmed, trapped in a limiting pattern, or if you're dealing with an experience that you know, or are coming to realize, has been a trauma for you - there is a way to move forward. I help folks develop the insight and skills to act from choice rather than from habit, defense, or survival. Life can be uniquely challenging when you have experiences that are atypical, however that difference shows up. The right support for your mental health is going to be just as unique. I work with people to find a balance that enables them to be in choice and invest themselves towards their goals. ​ ​

) and I work primarily with anxiety, depression and trauma .
Reaching out to start therapy can be anxiety-provoking. It's important to me that you feel comfortable in session and we build a trusting relationship as it's the foundation of therapeutic success. My aim is to help you understand why you feel or behave in the ways that you do and find helpful coping strategies to live a more meaningful life. Therapy goals are based on your priorities and values. In sessions, we will discuss how your feelings, thoughts, trauma or current stressors are impacting your life. I incorporate approaches such as mindfulness, self-compassion, regulation and value-based actions to work towards your goals.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
