In my depth-oriented sessions, I draw from a variety of different counselling approaches such as CBT, MBCT, Person Centred Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic , Crisis Intervention and Problem-solving among various other approaches and techniques.
Are you feeling depressed, low and deeply unhappy? Do you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks or feel excessive stress? Maybe you find yourself stuck in self-destructive patterns and struggling with hope or positivity? Or maybe you are struggling with an aspect of your identity, sexuality or relationship? Seeking help can be daunting, especially if you don’t understand why you are unhappy. I can effectively identify your needs by using an integrative approach where you will be offered a warm, friendly and non-judgemental space in which you can feel safe to talk and work on finding more helpful ways to manage current difficulties.

I offer an environment where change can be explored in creative and practical ways. Mindful conversation and reflection, compassion for self and the practice of both cognitive and somatic strategies are incorporated into each session. I believe that therapy is a co-created experience. It is important to me that people find new resources and enhance the ones that are already available to them. My approach is influenced by somatic psychology, interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, developmental, relational and psychodynamic schools of psychology.

Virtual Only. Welcome! I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), and I provide services for individuals working through, but not limited to, developmental trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, ADD/ADHD, and gender and sexuality issues. I have a particular interest in working with individuals who have experienced religious trauma and believe the effects of trauma are unique to the individual’s internalized experience; recognizing that therapy is not “one size fits all”. I am also passionate about working alongside fellow LGBT2SQ1A+ members, and acknowledge that one's identity may not always tidily fit into a label or narrative.

As a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I believe in the importance of empathy and building a strong connection with others.

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I weave together approaches from Emotionally Focused Therapy, depth psychology and soul-oriented wisdom traditions from all over the world.
We all experience times in life when we feel overwhelmed, anxious or in grief. Life's challenges can sometimes take a toll on our sense of well-being. This is especially true during this Covid-19 pandemic with its accompanying social distancing, isolation and stress. When anxiety, fear, grief or relationship difficulties arise you may feel even more vulnerable. Therapy offers an opportunity to explore your feelings, uncover insights and develop greater self-awareness and compassion. Together we can create new coping skills that will support you and your loved ones during these exceptional times.

Psychodynamic Therapy is a time honoured and proven effective approach that can bring long-term relief not by masking symptoms, but through an understanding of the self that leads to self-acceptance.
You are an individual. There is no one else quite like you. Your therapy should be as unique as you are. We are all the products of our past, from experiences that happened so long ago that they escape memory to what happened just as we opened the door to the present moment. Early in our lives, we learn the skills we need to navigate the world we find ourselves in. Those skills stay with us and help protect us on our journey through life. They continually have an impact on how we deal with ourselves and others every day.

In my 5th year of a 6-year psychotherapy training program, I see clients under the expert guidance of a clinical supervisor. This affords you the beneficial insights of two professionals on your case. With a psychodynamic psychotherapy focus, I employ a somatic, trauma-informed approach to the unconscious roots of emotional suffering, using attachment-theory as my guide. The client-therapist relationship is considered fundamental to the process and acts as a window into the repetitive patterns that can keep us stuck, where we don't want to be.

These include humanistic and experiential approaches; psychodynamic , and family systems therapies.
I really enjoy working with clients motivated for growth and change, and curious about themselves; what makes them "tick". The depth of my craft involves creating a holding therapeutic space or "container", which enables my clients to turn inwards and discover what moves them unseen. Patterns in personality and emotion emerge into view; emotional processes become unstuck and able to flow through to completion. An inner space opens for something new. It's a tremendous honor and privilege to accompany and serve people on this journey as a trusted ally, a witness, and expert midwife of psychological change.

I work with individuals and couples with many modalities including Cognitive Behavioural and Emotionally Focussed Therapies as well as applying psychodynamic perspectives among others, but my approach is tailored to individual needs.
My intention for you, as a therapist, is to be with you with compassion and skill to help you through life's difficult times and to help you reach your greater potential. We will work together, in a supportive environment, to increase resilience and wisdom so you can be better able to access, communicate and actualize your inner needs.

I practice from a psychodynamic , humanistic and person centered point of view, often employing modalities from cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and most importantly meaning based therapy. I find focusing on values is crucial because it promotes healthy lived experiences, relationships and also prompts us through our journey to get our lives back on track. Our values not only protect us, but guide us through our life journey.

The approach I take is an integrative one and I draw upon person-centred, emotionally-focused, psychodynamic , CBT, ACT, and mindfulness techniques.
Do you suffer from overwhelming emotions, depression, or anxiety? Are you feeling adrift or disconnected in your relationships? I bring an open curiosity to your experiences – whatever those may be – and, working together, we can uncover and navigate the internal and external obstacles you face. My goal as your therapist is to create a genuine, empathetic relationship between you and I, through which healing and change can take place. I also see individuals as embedded in broader social contexts that shape how we think, feel, and behave, and which may be implicated in psychological and interpersonal problems.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I offer E.M.D.R. therapy, a trauma-informed therapy, to treat past disturbing memories. Do you experience symptoms in the spectrum of anxiety disorders (social anxiety, panic attack), or depressive disorders (depression, bipolar)? Or stress disorders (PTSD, trauma)? Some memories are still a disturbance in your present. When the natural reprocessing gets stuck, you don't have peace. I also offer therapy that focuses on the present with approaches, such as CBT or ACT.

Conflicts in life are inevitable! It’s how we adapt and overcome them that makes the difference. These conflicts can be circumstantial or rooted in anxieties from the past and may not look like your typical conflict. Perhaps you find yourself experiencing the same anxious thoughts or behaviours or maybe you're stuck in the same negative patterns that you can't seem to break. Interpersonal and internal conflict can leave us feeling stuck, confused, stressed, overwhelmed, or depressed. Most importantly, recognizing that fear is an emotion we all experience and discovering how fear operates for you is okay to explore. I'm here to help.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
