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.

*** ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** My passion is working with clients who are neurodivergent, ethically non monogamous (long term or just starting to explore it -) from swinging to relationship anarchists, and or LGBTQ identified. I work with clients who desire support in understanding themselves better, healing from past hurts, exploring new or shifting relational dynamics, and striving to live their best life as their authentic self. I believe that empathy and understanding are foundational to growth and healing and therefore work to meet you where you're at with the tools you possess.

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.

I have been practicing social work for nearly 15 years and am eternally grateful for the work I am able to do, and the relationships I have been able to form with the folx I work alongside. I have worked in diverse practice areas which have provided me with the knowledge, skills and compassion needed to create meaningful, therapeutic relationships with people. I believe in the value of showing up as my genuine self in sessions with you. My approach is client-centered; I bring a variety of tools to the table, and I believe that you do as well, and our work together will be collaborative and goal driven.

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. ​ ​

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a St John's relationship counsellor, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counselling in St John's.
