From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation , and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

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 assist a wide range of clients navigating challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, and relationship issues. My work with clients often involves the development of skills in emotional awareness and regulation, self-compassion and mindfulness, empathy and emotional validation, or intra- and inter-personal conflict resolution. I also support clients in their goals toward behaviour change, personal growth, and career exploration. As a therapist, I work from a perspective that recognizes the shared human needs within all of us, as well as the uniqueness of each individual's personal story.

I strive to provide a safe and creative space for people to gain a deeper self-understanding and develop tools for navigating life's challenges. As a registered counselling therapist (candidate) and accredited music therapist, my speciality lies in integrating the creative processes (music, visual art, creative writing) in therapy as tools for self-expression, reflection, and development. I see each person as an innately and uniquely creative person capable of using this creativity as a resource in their therapy. Sessions with me typically integrate elements of talk therapy, music therapy, and mindfulness-based practices.

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.

It is with regret that at this time I am not taking new clients. My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness, the burden of a traumatic injury or complex trauma, a diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, depression, unprocessed grief, or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

Maybe you have tried many things and still feel there is something getting in the way of being the person you want to be. Maybe you are continuously looking for strategies to help you feel better but still feel stuck with difficult emotions and feelings. Maybe life threw obstacles in your way that turned your world upside-down. Sometimes, the obstacles can even come from inside in the form of negative, critical, anxious, or depressed thoughts and feelings. All this can keep you from connecting with others, making decisions, doing daily life activities, feeling confident about yourself, or finding meaning in life.
