As an IFS informed counsellor, healing the root of the issue is the goal of our therapeutic process together, not just cope with the symptoms, but going underneath the layers to the root of what is causing the distress/pain/numbness and attending to the needs that are there that you may not have been conscious of before.
**ON MATERNITY LEAVE** Helping individuals and couples who struggle with self-doubt, feeling stuck, anxiety, addictions, trauma, obsessions/compulsions, fear, rage and grief. I also work with women who are planning to conceive/are pregnant in working with their fears and concerns around giving birth and becoming a parent, etc. to heal the emotional blocks that they face so they can be emotionally and spiritually prepared to bring a child into the world and have the capacity to be present, experience joy and live fully through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

I love to work with highly sensitive people at a stage where they want to drop the toxic drama and begin to engage in life rather than react to it. I love working with couples and individuals who need a different framework because their current model of the world isn't working anymore. In the second half of life, we look to relate to the world, not manage it.

Life can be difficult and overwhelming. Counselling provides an opportunity to explore your life, yourself, and your relationships in a supported, non-judgmental, and safe space. It recognizes your unique, personal story while helping you understand the shared human experience of life's challenges. You'll be supported in many ways including, fostering greater self awareness, understanding your emotions, easing stress and anxiety, incorporating healthy behaviours, cultivating new coping strategies / problem-solving / decision-making skills, finding your meaning & purpose, and improving your relationship with yourself & others.

I help guide my clients to unlock their inherent wisdom and innate capacity for healing and permanent transformation through the Internal Family Systems Therapy Model and combine elements of other approaches when necessary.
PLEASE EMAIL FOR WAITLIST INQUIRIES. Have you been to therapy with little success or change? Are you tired of approaches that focus on symptom management and ignore the deeper reasons as to why you are struggling? My clients are those that are struggling mentally, emotionally, and/or physically (in the case of chronic pain or illness) where conventional methods of therapy haven't worked for them. My clients are those that want freedom in their life. They are those who want to live without the limits of illness and the constraints of their physical, mental, and emotional burdens.

I use a variety of evidence-based practices such Play Therapy, CBT, IFS , and Theraplay in my work.
Children, adolescents, and families face a number of challenges that can interfere with mental wellness. Perhaps your child has experienced a recent life transition such as the death or loss of a loved one, a divorce, or relocation. Perhaps your child is struggling to cope with the effects of trauma, and to make sense of their world after this event. Perhaps you, as your child’s caregiver, are looking for support – to learn strategies to respond to your child’s intense emotions, to improve your family’s communication, and to enhance healthy attachment.

I see therapy as a creative process, co-created by the therapist and the client. I am influenced by Jungian psychoanalysis, and I have received additional post-graduate training in Internal Family Systems Therapy ( IFS ), a cutting-edge and evidence-based type of psychotherapy that focuses on working with sub-personalities to reduce inner conflict, heal trauma, and restore balance to the personality system. IFS has been proven effective in treating a wide range of psychological issues. I love IFS because while it is evidence-based, it also offers a spiritual component to treatment, which can be very helpful for some people.

When you become aware that your protective system is not letting you live the life you want to lead, therapy helps unburden the parts that keep you stuck. Through Internal Family Systems therapy you can get to know your inner system of protection, distraction and inner freedom. Protection may be anxiety, anger, depression and distraction may be numbing, dissociation, addiction and procrastination. You learn that some of your protection is based on what worked in childhood but is no longer serving you now. With couples I focus on learning to become relational through the work of Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy.

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 see my role as helping people find their way through mental health challenges, challenges with family relationships or with work, struggles with chronic illness, loss and grief, or through life transitions to see their highest potential.

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.
