When you were growing up, becoming an adult seemed so great! Now that you're here, you're stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted from constantly trying to keep it all together. Whether you're always battling your anxiety, facing a difficult transition, feeling stuck in your relationships or unable to create the change you've been longing for, you are tired of just barely managing to stay afloat. Life is far from easy but you certainly don't have to face it alone. This is where I come in.
My work is client-centered and collaborative. In my practice I strive to offer practical tools and compassionate care to help people better connect with themselves and find solutions for their struggles be it with life transitions, relationships or career. I work with a lot of highly successful people struggling with stress and mood and help them foster growth, empowerment and fulfillment in their lives.
I know. It's a wild world we live in. There are so many things unknown and so many challenges from your past that might be surfacing. I'm not going to say that I have a clue what you are going through, because I don't. What I do know is that the therapists at SoulScape Services offer services that have helped people shift through intense anxiety and pain. If you are reading this, chances are that you are looking for some relief and a place to call home. If you are looking to find meaning, purpose, and to feel well again, Soulscape is a community of practitioners that support your wellness from a whole-person perspective.
I support folks struggling with anger, anxiety, depression, emotional & sexual trauma, overworking, life transitions, over-eating, chronic pain and illness and lack of compassionate communication in relationships. Using compassionate inquiry I work alongside my clients to explore and heal their parts that have been coping with pain, sadness, criticism and fear with methods that they no longer need.
When was the last time you felt like yourself- that you felt creative, wild, bold, gritty, or vibrant? Past memories, old beliefs, and old stories about ourselves have often developed because there was a time when we needed them, to help keep us safe. While they often do keep us safe in some ways, they also keep us from discovering what we are truly capable of, from feeling connected to our values, our inner knowledge, our purpose, and from recognizing our own inherent worthiness. Please note: I am not currently accepting referrals, but do have several colleagues accepting at www.couchpsychotherapy.com

"The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are" - Chauncey Depew. Life can be hectic, complicated and even lonely at times. Whatever you are facing right now, I would be honored to take this first step with you on this journey.
I am a compassionate, non-judgmental therapist and hold a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Windsor. I work from a position of respect for all clients and strive to provide a safe and nurturing place. I am always honoured when I am able to be part of a client's journey. It is especially important to me to provide a gentle and nurturing, but structured environment where children can feel safe and able to express themselves through non-threatening play-based activities such as sandplay therapy. I can help find relief from distress, increase coping skills, and strengthen client empowerment.

Starting the therapy process can be difficult. But if you are here, you are likely looking for some help in creating positive changes in your world. Congratulations on taking the first step to finding the right fitting therapist for you! Working with clients who are looking to create meaningful changes in their life is my passion. Supporting clients in reaching goals that are identified and monitored by them is also an important part of my practice. I look forward to understanding client's stories and hearing the areas in their life they are more looking forward to changing.
Whether you have been in therapy at different points in your life or are considering therapy for the first time, welcome. We will work collaboratively for you to gain a better sense of your overall well-being. Working together, I will help you learn more effective ways of coping as you may find yourself experiencing challenges in life including managing relationships, regulating difficult emotions, dealing with family conflict/issues, struggling with self worth, and adapting to change.
If you're looking for a therapist who's done every training there is, in a wide variety of therapeutic styles, and can claim to support pretty much any client with pretty much any need at an expert level - this is not me. But what I AM really good at is building a positive, nonjudgmental, and collaborative relationship. You can trust that I'll be using the expertise and training I have acquired through my decade-plus career to support you as you seek to cope with the issues at hand and ultimately continue to grow into a resilient, hope-filled person (or couple!).
You feel off balance with your emotional, physical or spiritual health but find it hard to reach out. When you do try, you may feel like you're burdening others or the idea of opening up to someone you don't know might seem challenging. This is why trust is at the core of my practice because I recognize how hard it is to share or try something new. Together, we'll create a non-judgemental space so you can feel safe sharing your hopes, joys, fears and sorrows (and everything in-between).
Want something different? Then you have to do something different. Are you ready? Then let's get to work. The reason I am here offering this service is because I am ready to support YOU in making positive changes in your life. As a Social Worker you can likely claim our time through your work benefits. Call today. I have just moved to Huntsville ON where I am now taking face to face, but will continue to provide virtual to anyone in the world.
