I am best able to help clients who are desirous of making changes in their lives and understand that "the slower you go, the faster you get there". My practice provides a safe space for patients to put all of their thoughts and feelings into words. As patients talk, they learn about themselves and better understand their journey. As the unconscious becomes conscious, patients are able to make more thoughtful and meaningful choices and thus begin to live more full and meaningful lives.

When you feel like you can’t be yourself, it hurts. Lots of things get in our way: abuse, systemic bigotry, feeling overwhelmed, or struggling with motivation. Whether you're working through this on your own or with a partner, sorting through the challenge to find where to start can be really difficult.

As young professional women, we often face challenges that make us feel stressed and anxious. We feel lost and question why this is so much harder to handle now than before. We overthink and wish to get past our emotions, leading to confusion about how to move forward. It can feel like we are losing a sense of who we are, our abilities, and our direction. All we yearn for is to find a sense of peace and to feel confident again in ourselves.

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.

The many twists and turns of life can be challenging to process and navigate. You may have experienced new or longstanding adversity that can make relationships challenging, cause overwhelming anxiety, or lead you to become withdrawn and depressed. I will collaborate with you to develop a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you explore how your body and mind respond to the complex emotions that emerge with such life adversity. For most of us, these patterns are automatic, but as you get to know yourself you can uncover new choices and options for meaningful, lasting change.

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.

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.

Currently not taking new clients until April 15, 2023. I work exclusively with older women as they navigate the challenges embedded in the second half of life. It is a stage of life given little recognition and yet one of the most complex . As earlier roles and identities shift and fall away, it's common for women to stand at the threshold of the next chapter ill prepared. When life doesn't unfold as we envisioned we can experience confusion, loneliness, fear or anxiety. Who are we without our earlier identities? How do we let go of all that we must and learn to honour and care for ourselves?

CURRENTLY NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. “Until you stop breathing, there's more right with you than wrong with you." (Jon Kabat-Zinn) This is also my guide and intention as a Registered Counselling Therapist. My work is to help an individual experience themselves differently while providing compassion, presence and skill in a safe space. I offer an integrated, eclectic approach that is based on each client's needs. Understanding attachment style, the effects of trauma and the mind-brain-body connection inform my therapeutic approach.

I am a Registered Counselling Therapist licensed with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists. I specialize in working with men and boys (ages 14+) who are experiencing a range of mental health and life challenges including relationship issues, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, anger/emotion regulation, trauma, depression, and anxiety. I offer office-based and outdoor-based (e.g., during a hike, at a park bench) therapy sessions, as I recognize that the space in which counselling therapy occurs has a profound impact on a person’s sense of comfort and readiness to explore their difficulties and their wellness.

My approach is to allow you to bring your past into the present so that you can develop skills that free you to thrive in the future. I provide a safe, open and encouraging space to equip and free you to do three things: * identify automatic negative, limiting or unproductive thoughts and behaviours, and imagine a life beyond them; * move from the bondage of those thoughts and behaviours, into a freedom of intention and choice where you can live life with purpose and passion; * develop the skill to sustain this freedom on your own.

Hello, and welcome. You may be interested in coming to therapy because you're feeling lonely, unsatisfied in your relationships, suffering from a difficult life event, or wondering if life can be better. There is no problem too big or too small to bring. I provide a space for you to be seen and be known. To say, and feel, what is difficult. To find what gives you hope. I seek to understand your unique experience and what may be preventing you from living your life more authentically. Together we look at ways you protect yourself and whether these ways are still serving you.

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.
