As a Registered Counselling Therapist, the focus of my clinical work is relationship and sex therapy; a specialized psychotherapy designed to support individuals and partners in addressing medical, psychological, personal, and interpersonal factors related to sexuality. I practice within the framework of trauma informed care, which is a treatment approach with the individual's past trauma and attachment experiences in mind. My approach is deeply compassionate where I facilitate an environment of safety, healing and growth. I rely heavily on my my training, lived experience and ability to build rapport therapeutically.

I believe that every individual is the expert of their own life, and you don't need someone to tell you how to live it. In your heart, you know what inspires you and makes you feel alive. But sometimes you get stuck or steered off track by difficult thoughts and feelings. It's hard and it happens to all of us.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS: When faced with difficult life experiences, feelings of ‘not being good enough’ or memories of painful past events, it’s not uncommon to get stuck repeating the same old patterns as a way of trying to cope. Perhaps you struggle with anxiety, low mood, over thinking, avoiding feelings or doing too much of something (e.g., electronics, substances) or too little of something (e.g., rest, exercise, connection with loved ones). Ideally, you want to feel more at ease with yourself, making choices and decisions that serve your best, authentic interests vs. those of others.

Accepting new clients - Phone sessions available. Direct billing with Blue Cross. The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping strategies and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. We repeat what’s familiar. Even though we know what is dysfunctional and not working well for us, we repeat behaviours because they are familiar. We can break old patterns and rewire our brain, forming new neural connections so that new thoughts and behaviours become the norm.

I provide therapy for children and youth who are experiencing a number of life challenges, such as anxiety, stress, trauma or divorce. Children are ideal candidates for early intervention and lasting change is often realized in a short amount of time. In my work with teens, I use a holistic, mindful approach, offering them tools and guidance. Through exploring their life experiences, values and unique strengths, teens develop self-awareness, confidence and self-regulation. I work with adoptive children and families to create safe, loving attachments when there has been complex trauma and disrupted attachment relationships.

Children, adolescents, and families face a number of challenges that can interfere with mental wellness. Perhaps your child has experienced a recent life transition such as the death or loss of a loved one, a divorce, or relocation. Perhaps your child is struggling to cope with the effects of trauma, and to make sense of their world after this event. Perhaps you, as your child’s caregiver, are looking for support – to learn strategies to respond to your child’s intense emotions, to improve your family’s communication, and to enhance healthy attachment.

I use observational statements to let the child know I am following their play. I believe that my relationship with the child is the most important part of the therapeutic process. I believe that children are wise and innately know what is needed inside to heal During dramatic play, I enter the child’s play instead of watching from the sidelines. During play, I model mindfulness and self-regulation for children. I view many of the behaviors that bring children to therapy as symptoms of dys-regulated nervous systems. I believe children’s play is a way for them to show me how it feels for them to be in their world.

I am a Licensed Counseling Therapist candidate, (RCT-C) whose specific psychotherapeutic training is anchored in Drama therapeutic processes. This is a therapeutic approach that utilizes talk therapy and engages personalized creative expression for catharsis. It is an innovative approach for those who may be stuck in old patterns or need to explore new ways to better communicate them. Clients explore alternative solutions to challenges by rehearsing alternative cognitive/behavioral responses using “what if ” imagination. Engaging an element of guided, gentle imaginative physicality helps better express what might be suppressed.
