Hello! I am a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists (NSCCT) currently offering virtual services for individuals 16 and older living in Nova Scotia. I strive to create a safe relational space in session, from which you can explore and process the stories, emotions, and experiences impacting your life. A space in which I can offer you, and you can offer yourself, curiosity, understanding, and compassion. I always want you to feel in control of the work we do together, as I see this work as deeply collaborative and understand that you are the expert in your own life.

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 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.

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.

Is the inside of your head feeling like an uncomfortable place to be? Working with a mental health professional can create a meaningful shift. Sometimes the harsh things we say to ourselves and our unconscious patterns can leave us trapped in a cycle of just trying to survive the day. Could the way you've learned to cope/survive be keeping you stuck or moving you away from who you want to be and how you want to live? Learning to see yourself, your life, and your patterns clearly can create opportunities for healing, growth, and more meaningful relationships.

Stressful situations can eat away at our ability to cope and function, or we can get stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating to others that interfere with our living a meaningful life. It can be scary to think about making changes. I will take time to listen and understand your situation so we can identify and move towards your goals. Together, we can learn how you respond to stressful situations and relationships, and find new ways of coping to build a life worth living. I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and grow: my job is to create a space where you are empowered and supported in this journey.

I support couples to develop fulfilling relationships; in which partners are each other's safe harbour in the stormy seas of life. I help couples communicate more effectively, better manage conflict, connect more deeply, become experts on each other, heal relationship injuries - such as infidelity, & navigate daily issues such as sex, mess, kids, money, time. I also support individuals to move towards wholeness - and address challenges such as self-criticism, difficult relationships (both current & past), parenting concerns, stress & anxiety - all the while recognizing the impacts of living in a context of uncertainty and inequity.

The human experience is characterized by constant oscillation. Sometimes, we feel happy, sad, anxious, angry, stressed, depressed, ambivalent, ignored, oppressed etc. You may be struggling to cope with the present, the past or a recent trauma. You may be struggling to cope with grief, work, school or relationships. You may be experiencing anxiety, self-doubt, depression, stress, or going through a difficult transition. Regardless of what is going on in your life, I invite you to reach out and start your journey to healing and revival. Together, we will work to relieve you of the pressure and weight that comes with life challenges.

I approach this work collaboratively. I am a relational therapist, meaning, it is most important to me that we are building trust in our dynamic in order for there to be the depth that feels safe in your healing journey. Therefore, I am constantly orienting to what may help you feel safe to be yourself and be present with me. I use a somatic approach to notice how your experiences are embodied in the therapy room. For example, Where do you hold anxiety? In your chest? The pit of your stomach? Whatever story, feelings, or emotions brings you to therapy, I help you to notice how you carry the experience of your feelings in your body.
