Have you ever felt like no one understands what you're going through? Or stuck because you aren't sure who you are, what you want, or how to heal past wounds? You're not alone. I became a counsellor because I have also been there and understand how difficult it can be. I want to help. Whether you are feeling disconnected from yourself, isolated in relationships, or a larger sense of overwhelm and uncertainty in today's world, you deserve a safe space to be heard, supported, and understood.

On the outside, you look like you have it all together, but truth is, on the inside you're a mess. You used to pride yourself on being able to balance a successful career, kids and a healthy relationship. But now, you feel burnt out and anxious; your worries are always rolling around in your mind. Lately, you've been more irritable and frustrated toward your kids and spouse, which makes you feel terrible. Worse yet, you've completely forgotten about yourself. It feels like you are drowning under the weight of your problems and you are desperate to get free. You never imagined yourself seeing a therapist, but you know you need help.

I work exclusively with older women as they navigate the challenges embedded in the second half of life. It is a stage of life given little recognition and yet one of the most complex . As earlier roles and identities shift and fall away, it's common for women to stand at the threshold of the next chapter ill prepared. When life doesn't unfold as we envisioned we can experience confusion, loneliness, fear or anxiety. Who are we without our earlier identities? How do we let go of all that we must and learn to honour and care for ourselves?

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.

Life can be hard. We all go through times when the daily tasks of living seem overwhelming and the joy we used to feel is gone. Many of us try to tough it out. We put on a good face to the outside world but inside we are in despair. If this sounds like you and you're ready to make a change, therapy can help. I work with adults and older teens who are suffering from a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, stress, trauma and career issues.

Hello, and welcome. You may be interested in coming to therapy because you're feeling lonely, unsatisfied in your relationships, suffering from a difficult life event, or wondering if life can be better. There is no problem too big or too small to bring. I provide a space for you to be seen and be known. To say, and feel, what is difficult. To find what gives you hope. I seek to understand your unique experience and what may be preventing you from living your life more authentically. Together we look at ways you protect yourself and whether these ways are still serving you.

It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society. -Krishnamurti Although things are getting better in some regards, outdated societal pressures and norms, as well as modern technology and newly implemented ways of living are weighing heavy on many of us. Anxiety is at an all-time peak, addiction continues to climb and although we have more comforts than at any time in history, we are increasingly unhappy. If you're feeling the strain of this, want to connect to something deeper within yourself, or are finding yourself more dysregulated than ever (with all the associated difficulties), let's connect.

Sometimes we are living at our best, in harmony with the highs and lows of life. Other times we are stressed, uncertain, overwhelmed and need help with the balance. Relationships are impacted, connections may be strained between family members, past experiences can affect the ability to live in the present moment. Major life transitions can be difficult, and feelings may seem too big to manage.
