) 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.

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

Trauma occurs many ways – abuse, accidents, divorce, death and it can suck the life right out of you. Maybe you’ve had sleepless nights and restless mornings and it does not feel worth it to get out of bed. Maybe you've thought of harming yourself or possibly had suicidal thoughts. Trauma can affect all parts of your life; your relationships, your ability to work, your ability to feel safe and happy. Sometimes you feel like all is well and that you have dealt with it. You feel fine and 6 months later it feels like it just happened, It is possible to get your life back. Reach out, I can help.

I am a registered Clinical Social Worker Psychotherapist who works from an anti-oppressive, anti-shame, trauma -informed lens.
Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

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. ​ ​

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.

All are informed by a person-centred, trauma -informed approach.
Life has its ups and downs. Often we can find ways to cope, and even grow, riding out those waves. But most of us also have times when it all just seems too much; we cannot see a clear path ahead. That's when having the support of someone who listens without judgement and is fully present can be immensely helpful. That is the essence my counselling approach. My aim, in the time we spend together, is to help you discover and reconnect with your inner resources, as well as gain some new tools and create a viable plan to help you move from simply surviving to thriving.
