When we are experiencing a stressful life event, a challenging medical diagnosis or chronic condition, or just facing a difficult period of our life, it is not uncommon that we may feel overwhelmed with new changes, unsettled thoughts and emotions, and need someone to talk to. Both individuals and caregivers may feel stressed and uncertain about the future. As we encounter life's difficulties, we all may need help coping at some point in our life. I am committed to helping my clients ease their distress, and find a healthy sense of well-being and more helpful and bonding connections in their relationships.

I am passionate about helping my clients develop a heathier self-relationship. Throughout our lives we can accumulate shame and fear, and dismiss emotions and experiences that are challenging to look at. This dismissal of the self can cause inner turmoil, emotional dysregulation, and may keep us feeling stuck in old patterns. I create a safe space for my clients to sit with and process their emotional experiences so that they may live more wholeheartedly, show up for themselves, and show up more fully in their relationships.

If you are struggling, you are not alone… I would be honored to walk beside you on your journey to greater wisdom, and freedom. Our sessions can include counseling (for instance setting goals, developing tools to assist with managing difficult thoughts and feelings), as well as deeper emotion-focused work aimed at getting at what is on the inside; our deepest needs and truths. This is done not only through talking, but through learning to tap into our felt-sense; a powerful place where healing occurs. My work draws from a variety of evidence-based approaches.

One of the consequences of stress is re-experiencing it in the mind and body, leaving us depleted and disconnected from life. Intense reactions can be confusing and distressing. Making sense of our experiences, putting them in perspective, and changing unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving, and coping increases our resilience. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and have a particular interest in survivors of sexual violence and exploitation; first responders, frontline workers, military, veterans and their families; survivors of adverse childhood experiences; workplace stress and life transitions; and older adults.

Times can be tough. We have all been "there"... struggling to make sense of the challenges life can throw at us. I believe we can get through anything, but having proper support and an opportunity to reflect on these life circumstances certainly helps. As your therapist, I hold space for you as you navigate this trying time and help you recognize your potential and share the belief you will get through it. I am passionate about helping people and supporting them as they evolve and develop through the ups and downs called "Life". Together, we can uncover your skills and build strength to stay motived and pursue your goals.

I work from the perspective that everyone has basic healthiness, a natural yearning for brilliant sanity and the wisdom of wholeness as part of their being. Conditioning and confusion can obscure these endowments but they are never absent. My job is to help draw out this wisdom for healing that is already there, by encouraging awareness. I begin with client-centered listening that honours where you are now, and the change you want. I then move into more experiential work to facilitate transformation. The contract for change and the pace of change is always in the client's hands

What has spared us from pain in the past often keeps us stuck and anxious in the present. Most of us wish to be free of our psychological suffering, but we find ourselves continuing to treat ourselves or others poorly in spite of our best interest to do otherwise. We all need a therapeutic relationship where we can learn to experience our emotions safely, regulate our anxiety, and turn against our defenses. I provide Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a comprehensive form of psychotherapy that helps patients experience their emotions and understand themselves across a broad range of clinical concerns.

I thrive on navigating my clients through times of emotional distress, depression and anxiety. I feel confident in helping people find inner peace, mental tranquillity and emotional calm through counselling and psychotherapy. I believe that a human being who is in search of reducing stress levels, boosting the quality of life, and achieving spiritual and mental sophistication and emotional stability would appreciate guidance and companionship. I would be glad to be at the service of my clients who feel this way.
