I have post graduate training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Play Therapy, Theraplay, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have a trauma informed practice.
I understand that finding the right therapist and reaching out for support can feel overwhelming. I hope to ease that burden through an initial consultation. As a counsellor, I prioritize cultivating a safe and accepting therapeutic environment. My approach to therapy is integrative and collaborative, meaning that I work with clients to develop a treatment plan that feels meaningful and impactful to them. In my practice, I work with folks across the lifespan to navigate life transitions, grief, reducing stress, relational challenges, anxiety, depression, emotional and behavioural challenges, and attachment and parenting concerns.

I have also completed training in the area of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and find working with couples very rewarding.
As a Certified Canadian Counsellor I take a holistic, client centered approach. I draw upon different therapeutic strategies. The benefit of an eclectic approach allows me to adapt approaches in order to best suit client needs. I believe clients have the answers they need within themselves and I work collaboratively to help them discover their own strengths. I provide a warm environment where clients can feel comfortable and supported. I have successfully worked with clients struggling with grief and loss, depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting, post trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, stress, and communication.

I often use dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and emotionally focused therapy.
One of the bravest things you can do is allow yourself to be vulnerable and begin your own story. I can promise you; I understand that taking this step is not easy and intimidating - I hope that together, we can take those deep breaths and begin (or continue) this journey together. I aim to support you as we work through the many obstacles that life may place in front of you so that you can reach your goals while developing and enhancing skills to navigate life.

To support you, I may use approaches from, dialectical behavioural and cognitive behavioural therapy, emotionally focused therapy, solution focused and a trauma informed lens.
You deserve to feel excited about life, to like who you are, and to feel more than just stress and worry! I think many people are nervous when it comes to the idea of therapy/counselling because there is sometimes a fear that if I face the music, will it just get louder? Well, I want to provide you with a space that allows you to control the volume, while I help guide you and support you through the process. I want you to reach your goals, overcome emotional suffering, and develop the skills you need to feel empowered as you navigate this complex thing, we call life.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. St John's Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
