I provide a flexible, integrated approach that is informed strongly by Dialectical Behavioural Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Spiritual Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapies.
Trauma, depression, and other mental health issues can often cause individuals to become "stuck" leading to feelings of resignation or hopelessness. It can often feel like the individual is at the bottom of a well which keeps getting deeper, with the light out feeling further and further out of reach. It can lead individuals to believe that there is no path forwards, or that any path forward is one devoid of meaning or fulfillment.

As a Clinical Social Worker (MSW) working in health and community settings, I use an integrative counselling approach that combines EMDR, CBT and DBT to create a customized counselling plan for you.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Frustrated? Weighed down by your emotions, and the stress of day-to-day life? Maybe you are facing challenges in your relationships, stress from work or home, problems from the past that just don’t seem to be getting resolved, or new challenges, like the loss of a loved one or fears about the future. Often our journey to seek counselling comes after we have tried all our go-to methods for coping, but they just don’t seem to be working anymore. You’re feeling stuck or blocked from what matters to you, and you are ready to try something different. If this is where you are, I'm glad you're seeking support.

As a Registered Psychotherapist trained in several evidence-based modalities (CBT, DBT , IFS, EMDR - certified) a large part of my therapy also includes holistic practices such as mindfulness, meditation, raising our energy & vibration, and an emphasis on strengthening the connection to our higher selves and intuition.
Our mind, body, and soul are so wise, always giving us the roadmap to health and balance if we pay attention. I believe that intrinsically we all desire for this alignment to occur, however, as humans we also experience suffering, trauma, loss, and fear that can create barriers to this innate process. I guide clients to compassionately and gently look within, helping them become more familiar with the various parts of themselves that may be causing imbalance.

I believe that change is possible. I also believe that sometimes we need help and encouragement to identify the strengths within ourselves to make change happen. The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of how I approach my work. A feeling of safety and the building of trust can allow clients to begin to accept themselves, have compassion for themselves and harness their innate gifts and strengths. I understand the power of therapy from personal experience. I learned that healing is possible and the past does not have to rule the present and future.
