Accepting NEW Clients! - Are you hoping to feel less "stuck," anxious, or sad?

My areas of clinical care include trauma, abuse, violence, PTSD and C-PTSD, anxiety, depression, dissociation, substance use and addictions, shame, anger, grief, relationships, sexual and gender identity, and spiritual abuse, deconstruction, and integration.
I believe that vitality and the chance to flourish happens when it’s safe enough to honestly be yourself. I consider it a privilege to accompany people through their pain, coping, self-discovery, healing, transformation, and joy. For the last 15 years, I have served in my community's and social services field, working alongside people living through trauma, substance use and addictions, poverty, mental health dual-diagnoses, developmental disabilities, and criminality.

My areas of specialty are Trauma, ADHD (in adults), Women's mental health around reproductive stories (including menopause) & Pregnancy or Infant loss (due to termination, miscarriage or postnatal loss).
I'm glad you're here, taking the first brave steps towards healing. I know it can be overwhelming at the beginning. But if you'll let me I'd really like to join you on your journey to feeling better about your life. My style is eclectic (using several methods) because I believe therapy should be tailored for every individual. I want to make your healing & self discover experience all about you, not a system. You're in charge of how fast we go, where we go & when you need to rest. I simply journey beside you as a trusted source of perspective & insight. Helping to reframe or see an issue from a different view point.

As a psychotherapist, I seek to provide you with a life transforming experience to help you deal with the difficult issues in your life, such as relationship troubles, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, or grief. I offer you an authentic human relational encounter that fosters growth, support and change. Life growth and transformation can be a beautiful experience, and it is my goal to help you experience what others have previously experienced with me. Finding happiness in life does not need to be out of reach, or seem impossible for you.

With over 20 years of professional practice, my experience working through life transitions, family crisis, work related stress, coping with personal and family health conditions, end of life, expected and anticipated loss, grief, and bereavement, as well as day to day overwhelm are areas we can explore together.
Connecting with you in a compassionate, empathetic, and relaxed manner. Are you or a loved one experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety? I believe in starting our conversation where you are in your life and exploring this with you through strengths based, solution focused counselling and support. When we reach adulthood we are not well prepared for managing the feelings that come with that. Sometimes these overpowering feelings can become so large that we need to reach out and find support from someone like myself that can help you find strength, solutions, and calm in an environment that is peaceful and relaxed.

I work with people struggling with anxiety and panic disorders, low mood, relationship struggles, grief, trauma and more.
I consider it a privilege every single time someone welcomes me to share in their therapeutic process. My intention is to bring authenticity, empathy and non-judgemental guidance to the room. I believe that therapy is a very personal experience for each of my clients, so I try to enter the therapeutic relationship as a 'clean slate', free of judgement or any agenda other than what they want or need in their healing. In my practice, I work from an anti-oppressive, client-focused, strength-based framework and believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that you are the expert of your experience.

My goal as a therapist is to create a connection that allows for curiosity, risk-taking, fun and emotional safety so that you feel empowered to share in sessions. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, life-transitions, grief, relationship issues, or questions around identity I would love to explore this with you. I enjoy connecting people to their emotions and will often aim to increase connection between your emotions and your body so you feel empowered to express your feelings and increase self-trust. Emotions have important information for us and feeling them in the presence of another is sometimes all that's needed.
