I am a caring and compassionate therapist with over 15 years' experience in the areas of trauma, violence / abuse , relationship issues and complex mental health concerns.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental, client centered therapeutic space for individuals and couples. I believe that a journey towards healing requires empathy, encouragement and supportive facilitation as we often haven't had the opportunity to learn ways to cope with traumatic experiences and life related stressors. This can result in dysregulation and feelings of anxiety, depression and overwhelm in our day to day lives and relationships. Let's work together to explore and address your concerns in an open minded, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, sex/body positive, LGBTQ+ inclusive space.

I am a registered psychotherapist with 20+ years experience supporting people and their loved ones impacted by addiction, violence , trauma, and serious mental illness.
Feeling isolated and misunderstood is a common result of the stress and emotional strain of coping; whether the concern is addiction (your own or that of someone close to you), domestic abuse , trauma, caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, depression, anxiety, or other challenges. I take an eclectic client centred, empathic approach to assist clients in the development of effective coping skills, making life style changes, strengthening relationships, and making new connections in their lives. Over the past 20+ years I have had the privilege of witnessing clients cope more effectively and thrive.

I have over 16 years of experience working directly with individuals suffering from the effects of trauma, including: PTSD, BPD, addictions, marital breakdown, social isolation, criminal justice involvement, addictions, domestic abuse , self harm, anger management issues and low motivation.
I believe everyone has a story, that every story matters and that when we are in pain our story must be heard. When we are suffering and feel we are alone or unheard, it can result in feelings of hopelessness, inferiority, and diminish our self esteem. It can impact our ability to cope with the demands of life, our ability to feel whole, to feel safe and can drain our physical and emotional energy. Therapy can help us move beyond this state. It is possible to find yourself...

I am a registered social worker with over 15 years of work experience. I have helped people who experience issues such as: depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse , trauma, anger, LGBTQ-related issues, relationship issues, grief, and family conflict. My journey into social work began at age 14, when I lost my father to cancer. Because there were few supports available at the time, I felt alone and stuck. This prompted me to dedicate my life to assisting others during difficult times, and help them realize they are not alone.

I have a strong skill set in substance abuse /addiction counselling and an intimate, personal understanding of lived adversity.
Do you struggle with shame? Does the thought of loving yourself seem impossible? Painful experiences impact the way we perceive ourselves and the world around us. However, this does not have to mean a life sentence of despair. Together, we can look at the things that hurt, where they hurt, and why. Therapy is hardly an easy process. It means embracing feelings, confronting demons and getting to know ourselves on a deeper level. In time, we come to learn that every piece of shame we carry has been a survival tool to get us through.. And then, we begin to forgive and love ourselves.. Perhaps the way we have always needed to be loved.
