Clients come to me when they (or their loved ones) are dealing with anxiety, depression, behavioural challenges, mood swings, challenging life events, flash backs, PTSD , or childhood trauma . I use Brainspotting, EMDR, Creative Arts therapy and other strength-based approaches to help clients build confidence, self-understanding, and concrete strategies to manage the challenges of daily life. My clients learn about the brain-body connection of their distress and challenges, building positive skills to be able to manage life’s stresses and become less overwhelmed by emotional triggers.

I am currently training to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, an approach developed by Peter Levine to heal trauma .
I am interested in supporting adolescents and adults on their journey of healing, growth, and wellness. As a strong believer in the mind-body-spirit connection, I am passionate about using a holistic approach to support clients experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress, relationship challenges, grief, and low self-worth. My intention is to help individuals reclaim a deeper connection with themselves, to resolve problematic symptoms and dynamics, to increase the capacity to tolerate stress and difficult emotions, and to live with more presence and joy.

I have many years of experience working with complex trauma , depression, anxiety.
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.

I am a Clinical Traumatologist who uses an integrative trauma -racial focused approach to healing, including somatic and empowerment therapies, to guide healing and recovery of trauma and symptoms of adversities.
Trauma has a way of showing up in an intrusive way, it shows up with no real reference point for, it brings up discomfort and leaves us with this sufferance and pain. Taking the first step can be hard, while finding new meaning and growth is possible, it takes courage and vulnerability. I am here to walk alongside you, on your journey back to your authentic self.

Operating from a humanistic and trauma -informed lens, I incorporate elements of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to help clients connect with injured parts, re-story traumatic experiences, and develop coping skills to navigate the turbulent waves of life.
I believe that each us carries inherent goodness inside of us, and sometimes we can become stuck. As a therapist, I see my role as creating a space where you can feel supported to explore the parts of you that are hurting and also to nurture your own inner compassion and wisdom. Working from a non-pathologizing approach, I believe that all behaviour meets a need. The work of therapy is to develop a deeper understanding of what purpose protective mechanisms like addiction, anxiety, and self-harm have played in your life, and what you need to feel supported to grow and change.

I have substantial experience treating complex trauma .
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.

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.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
