I have lived experience with grief and have supported individuals with life-limiting illness.
Are you struggling with the demands of life? Do you have a low mood, or big shifts in your mood? Do you find you are very critical of yourself but find compassion for others? Do you often feel misunderstood? I can help you explore these experiences and co-create meaning and solutions that fit you. I am also now providing support for couples in conflict and have a particular focus on ADHD-impacted relationships. You don't have to be in crisis to seek help. We can start now!

My main focus is on individuals who are struggling with burnout, but also anxiety and depression, life and health transitions, grief, fertility issues, identity and self-esteem.
How do we navigate change? As we’ve all learned in these past years, the ability to navigate change has been uncertain and very tough. But whether it’s a change in your mood, your physical health, your career, your family life and relationships, or struggling through challenges that have been out of your control, it can be a very bewildering, confusing and even scary time. As a therapist, my approach centres your safety and empowering you to uncover your inner abilities and strengths. My role is to walk beside you through the tough challenges and be a guide through – what might feel like – the wilderness of your own emotions.

I believe in a holistic approach to health, so my clients come in with a slew of different concerns, sometimes without even knowing the full picture. Old traumas often haunt them, grief remains unprocessed, or they struggle to stop acting out in sex or other addictions. I'm certified as a trauma-, addictions-, and grief-informed professional, and have a broad educational base that covers body, mind and even spirit. All of that prepares me pretty well for helping them break the ice and start the hard work of problem-solving. Trauma can heal, grief is a natural process, and addiction can be treated.

We often look for external solutions when we are trying to resolve or fix a problem. We may be struggling with issues at work or school, or perhaps we’re feeling stuck in a life that no longer brings us joy. The loss of a loved one or a marriage or relationship breakdown leaves us feeling depleted and abandoned. Overwhelmed anxious feelings can easily take over when faced with any of these situations.

Therapy is provided to individuals who would like to work on past trauma, grief, communication, relationship issues, boundaries, sex related issues and other life events.
My education and experience has led me to a profound passion for the restoration of people. I value understanding how the human mind functions on a day to day basis. My education and experience in Marriage (Couple) and Family Therapy has led me to further expertise on topics including communication, conflict resolution, relationship issues, sex and stress within relationships. I believe therapy should never be seen as a failure, but rather as an avenue of growth and restoration.

Are you feeling stuck? Anxious? Are you inclined towards mindful and body-centred practices like yoga? Perhaps you've tried cognitive behavioural groups but don't feel that you are getting to the underlying root? I work with adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, life transitions (e.g. separation and divorce), relationship issues, trauma, pregnancy and post-partum. I work collaboratively helping you to make sense of your experience, heal any pieces getting in the way, build new skills, so you ultimately can become more alive, aligned and peaceful.

Hi I'm Kristen. I am a Registered Social Worker, specializing in Grief, Bereavement and Loss, Palliative/End of Life Care and Geriatric Social Work. I believe in providing strength based, person centred, holistic care. Grief is unique to each of us, grief does not follow a timeline, and everyone navigates it differently. I acknowledge that grief can be complex and messy, and it is okay to not be okay. I often tell clients and have heard from clients that grief is the club no one wants to be a member of. Grief is a universal human experience, which we do not choose or want. "Grief is the price we pay for love."

My approach to counselling is strengths based, client centred and collaborative. That means working with you to figure out what’s working well, and how to do more of it. Feelings can often become overwhelming, I help people find balance and meaning. Through our work together, we will explore patterns of thoughts and behaviours which may be keeping you stuck, as well as ways of coping that aren’t helpful. I empower people to make connections between early life experiences and who they are today, moving towards change and building on their resilience.

I believe it takes courage to take this first step in reaching out for help. Life is full of challenges and roadblocks that can often be difficult to move past or face alone. In therapy we will work on things that are of concern to you and at a pace that feels right for you. I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, stress, grief, or relationship issues. My niche is in working with women struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss or postpartum challenges.
