I believe that every individual is the expert of their own life, and you don't need someone to tell you how to live it. In your heart, you know what inspires you and makes you feel alive. But sometimes you get stuck or steered off track by difficult thoughts and feelings. It's hard and it happens to all of us.

Accepting New Clients - Phone sessions only available at this time. 6-7 week waiting list for in-person sessions (end of March 2023). The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping strategies and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. We repeat what’s familiar. Even though we know what is dysfunctional and not working well for us, we repeat behaviours because they are familiar. We can break old patterns and rewire our brain, forming new neural connections so that new thoughts and behaviours become the norm.

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.

I provide holistic psychotherapy and wellness counselling to individuals, couples and families. I recognize that working through difficult life circumstances and challenging relationships can be stressful and isolating, resulting in feelings of anxiety, low mood, poor coping skills or a general sense of being stuck in a cycle of unhealthy patterns. To move forward in our lives, it’s helpful to honor our experiences, accept that deeper emotions are appropriate in certain situations and build trust in ourselves to know the difference.

Feeling overwhelmed these days? Many of us are walking around stuck in a state of fight, flight, or freeze and we may not even be aware. The latest research says that the three ways we can find calm are: connection, safety, and being in the present moment. My goal as a therapist is to provide a space that makes these conditions possible. By engaging with our emotions, our mind, and our body in a safe and integrated way, we can move past "the stuckness" and find hope in places that we didn't think were there.

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.

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.

I help people develop solutions to problems and challenges that get in the way of living well. Clients may use terms like depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress, e.g., to describe the challenges bringing them to therapy. Regardless of the challenges, problems, or difficulties you are experiencing, you have potential to live well, and I am able to help.
