I have worked extensively with a range of mental health issues (eg: anxiety , depression), substance abuse, recovery from trauma and grief/loss. I have worked extensively with children and teens as well. I have worked with many couples in relationship counselling, improving communication and healthy dynamics. I have a keen interest in and experience working with people in ethically non-monogamous relationships (polyamory). I am an Art Therapist as well and love to help people find a creative and visual language to express thoughts, feelings, gain self-insight and heal. I bring an interest and knowledge of the brain into sessions.

I am interested in supporting adolescents and adults on their journey of healing, growth, and wellness. As a strong believer in the mind-body-spirit connection, I am passionate about using a holistic approach to support clients experiencing symptoms of anxiety , depression, and post traumatic stress, relationship challenges, grief, and low self-worth. My intention is to help individuals reclaim a deeper connection with themselves, to resolve problematic symptoms and dynamics, to increase the capacity to tolerate stress and difficult emotions, and to live with more presence and joy.

In the words of a wise pop singer in the 1990's, "Everybody hurts, sometimes." While difficulties do arise in every human life, we can sometimes become overwhelmed when we experience intense suffering (for example, depressed mood, anxiety , self-esteem or relationship problems). As we try to help ourselves feel better, we can then develop unhelpful coping strategies, behaviours, or symptoms that further complicate our lives and drain us of joy, energy, and serenity. However, I believe we are all born with an innate ability to heal, grow, and thrive, and my goal is to help my clients activate this ability.

You may face sadness, worry, repetitive thoughts, following experiences that are tough to talk about, violence and trauma resulting in numbness, isolation. Maybe you want to dig deeper, to better understand these events and how they are impacting your life now. You may feel increasingly ready to move through and beyond the difficulties you face, to embrace what feels more like the real you. I am trained to work creatively with folks who are in the midst of life’s challenges, to help them process and cope with their emotions. I know how to work with trauma, survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, depression and anxiety .

I work from a psychodynamic model, using Affect Phobia Therapy (APT).
Do you find yourself stuck in a cycle of emotional pain, where you seem to be living through the same suffering over and over again? You may have insight into some areas of your troubles but feel overwhelmed when making changes. Persistent struggles represent ways of coping that have developed over time, usually starting in childhood. As your therapist, I want to learn about how your life experiences have shaped how you see yourself and how this impacts your world. It is always my goal to make my clients feel supported and safe to fully experience uncomfortable emotions as they come up.

Some of us feel challenged by anxiety , depression, or anger. Some by the relationships in our lives with partners, family, or in the workplace. Parenting never fails to challenge our best intentions, or we can also find ourselves repeating behaviours and ways of thinking that no longer work for us. My clients are typically active partners in change – sometimes to change those habitual behaviours or ways of thinking, sometimes to interact more effectively, sometimes to nourish personal growth, and sometimes just to clarify and explore.

When you become aware that your protective system is not letting you live the life you want to lead, therapy helps unburden the parts that keep you stuck. Through Internal Family Systems therapy you can get to know your inner system of protection, distraction and inner freedom. Protection may be anxiety , anger, depression and distraction may be numbing, dissociation, addiction and procrastination. You learn that some of your protection is based on what worked in childhood but is no longer serving you now. With couples I focus on learning to become relational through the work of Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy.

The many twists and turns of life can be challenging to process and navigate. You may have experienced new or longstanding adversity that can make relationships challenging, cause overwhelming anxiety , or lead you to become withdrawn and depressed. I will collaborate with you to develop a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you explore how your body and mind respond to the complex emotions that emerge with such life adversity. For most of us, these patterns are automatic, but as you get to know yourself you can uncover new choices and options for meaningful, lasting change.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
