Counselling isn't an easy process, and neither is choosing a Therapist. If you are not feeling okay, feeling stuck, you know something needs to change, or can't seem to figure your way - you're so welcome here. I won't look for what is wrong with you; rather I will support you in finding the way back to yourself.

Mindful Healing is a place where you can rest, talk, gain clarity and heal; a place where your natural innate healing abilities are validated, respected and encouraged. Together, you and I decide which approach is best for the presenting circumstances. At times, you may need bodywork such as massage or reflexology. Other times, counselling and/or hypnosis therapy are appropriate. I am often asked to draw upon Energy Therapies: Reiki, Eden Energy Medicine,Therapeutic Touch, Quantum Touch® and Emotional Freedom Techniques (“tapping’). My philosophy is based on client-centered therapy which encourages self-knowledge and inner wisdom.

I am a Halifax-based counsellor, psychotherapist, and creative arts therapist with a background in mindfulness, body-based, and trauma-oriented modalities. I believe that to struggle is a fundamental part of human experience. As humans are relational beings, we need to be witnessed, supported and deeply heard in order to process and expand beyond our grief and our pain. We all have the innate capacity for healing. With the right space to hold and befriend our difficult memories and emotions, our minds and bodies learn that there can be safety, freedom, and possibility in our lives.

We all have them. Those days when we don’t feel “on.” Not feeling well-rested or grounded, difficulty navigating our mental health journey, feeling overwhelmed with the demands of our life and work responsibilities. Days when, the instant you open your eyes in the morning, you just know you’re not going to be able to function the way you want or need to through your day. Debilitating headaches, brain fog, sadness, anxiety, panic attacks, confusion, nausea, distraction… when one or more of them takes over your day, you can feel helpless, frustrated, disempowered, sadness, and hopeless.
