If you decide to connect with me for counselling I first focus on building a strong relationship with you to give us a foundation to work from. Whatever issues you are facing I am ready to partner with you to explore the history of the issue and work on making effective change happen. I use a Somatic approach which considers how your nervous system works, the effects of trauma / PTSD, and focuses on balancing the mind / body system. I also use a Narrative therapy approach considering identity and meaning making. Finally I incorporate Psychoanalytic theory and practice to consider life long human development.

I have 10 years of experience working with youth, individuals and couples to dive beyond the symptoms of distress so as to find and help you address the root causes.
You are greater than your struggles. Through counselling, we can carefully examine each challenge, evaluating and better understanding how you got to where you are. Through this exploration, we will discover the strengths and identify coping mechanisms you have developed along the way in order to deal with your challenges.

My specific areas of focus and interest include: parenting and family relationships, couples counselling , developmental trauma and attachment injuries, complex and/or chronic PTSD, Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, existential anxiety/depression, grief/loss, ADHD/highly sensitive people, and spiritual growth.
I see therapy as a creative process, co-created by the therapist and the client. I am influenced by Jungian psychoanalysis, and I have received additional post-graduate training in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), a cutting-edge and evidence-based type of psychotherapy that focuses on working with sub-personalities to reduce inner conflict, heal trauma, and restore balance to the personality system. IFS has been proven effective in treating a wide range of psychological issues. I love IFS because while it is evidence-based, it also offers a spiritual component to treatment, which can be very helpful for some people.

I enjoy working with couples and individuals to address relationships issues, explore what is happening and to find a way forward. Often there are multiple issues going on at once and I can assist clients in prioritizing goals and identifying preferred ways of being in all areas of their lives. We can get caught up in "the problem story of self" and can't see all the other storylines we are living. I enjoy assisting clients in recognizing the other "stories of self" and finding ways to enhance these in their day to day lives. Most clients want to feel well, at peace, and experience love and joy.

My ideal clients range in age from adolescents through adulthood, including couples and families. They may have a past history of trauma or grief, or perhaps they are presently struggling with symptoms of ADHD, life changes, or a breakdown of a key relationship. They may be feeling completely overwhelmed and unsure where to go next. They will be open to trying new ideas to help them on the path to feeling better, but will not be worried about talking to me when certain strategies that do not work for them, as they will know it is best that we use techniques that they are comfortable with and will use.

I have had the privilege of working with individuals, couples and families to navigate the challenges they are facing such as family conflict, grief and loss, infertility, anxiety, depression and life transitions.
At times life can become complicated by stress and adversity which is difficult to navigate on our own. My counselling philosophy is grounded in the knowledge that everyone has strengths and resources that can help them thrive and all of us need genuine caring relationships to live our best lives. Unfortunately, the challenges in our lives can cause us to lose sight of our strengths and strain key relationships leaving us feeling lost, confused and overwhelmed. At these times, counselling can help to explore these thoughts and feelings, identify meaningful solutions and restore hope and overall resilience.

There are many things in life we can't control and I understand how helpless we can feel when we're faced with a diagnosis, either in our physical or mental health, an angry partner , impossible expectations at work, or children not listening.
Are you struggling to make sense of the feelings and thoughts that seem too overwhelming to explore? Tired of living the same old cycle in your relationships that leave you feeling exhausted and alone, regardless of who you live with? You're not alone. Human beings are not meant to suffer in silence, suppressing the scariest parts of ourselves so that others think we have it all together. If you want a space to be vulnerable and to shift the way you respond to the stresses in your life, let's explore together.

I work with individuals, couples and families.
How many people are willing to understand the true feelings in a person's heart? I believe it is easy to define psychological illness, but it is very hard to find out a person's true feelings. This is the biggest challenge for one’s career. With that in mind, I work to understand all feelings and help all my clients learn to work through their difficulties to gradually become internally independent until they no longer need me.

I provide counselling to individuals and couples primarily in the areas of anxiety and stress management, relationship issues, sexuality, trauma and personal growth and wellness.
Life isn’t always hard, but when things get challenging, when feelings of anxiousness and despair seem overwhelming, seeing a counsellor can help. Having a place to say it all out loud can be the gateway to better emotional and mental health. Sorting through and dealing with issues of anger, abandonment, fear, trauma and hopelessness can help you restore balance in your life. We can work together to find your way forward.

I have specialized training in sex therapy and work with individuals and couples to resolve sexual problems that may be getting in the way of their relationships and their wellbeing.
I work with adults and older teens, including individuals and relationships, who feel overwhelmed with stress or anxiety, are lacking motivation, and perhaps even feel stuck and are not sure where to turn for support. Many of my clients have experienced anxiety, depression or issues in their relationships. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify the issues and areas that are keeping them stuck. Considering your unique needs and goals, we will create a plan to help you recover feelings of wellbeing and wholeness, and feel more fulfilled in your life.

I work with all types of people; but since I have a degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, I have been trained to work with one or more people in the room (children, families, couples , and individuals).
Hi there! I count it a great honour and privilege to walk alongside others as they journey through difficult pieces. My hopes and goals in working with my clients is to create a safe space for exploration and together go to the deep places where they might be feeling stuck. I love working with my clients strengths and firmly believe each person has strengths that can help them move towards the change they'd like to experience.
