You want nothing more than to be able to feel calm and experience happiness again. If you’re ready to break the cycle and build confidence in yourself, you’ve landed on the right profile.

Accepting New Clients. We as human beings experience stressors, challenges, difficulties and traumas as we navigate life, regardless of our age. We might struggle with feelings of sadness, anger or anxiety. Many of us need a place to feel understood, safe and connected. We yearn for validation, empathy, acceptance and compassion. We want to feel more connected to ourselves and/or our relationships. We want to feel like we belong, we are valued and we matter. Our lives can be so busy and full of chaos. We can experience more clarity. We want to increase our feelings of joy, calm and our sense of worth. You are enough.

Life can be challenging. Sometimes it’s a job we don't like, a relationship, or our past. As a therapist I can help to identify patterns in your life, in your behaviour and beliefs that keep you unfulfilled, frustrated, and unhealthy. Freedom can come from the ability to see those patterns with compassion and from choosing a different way forward for yourself. I am a caring, committed person with experience working with individuals and families.

I practice trauma-informed somatic & relational psychotherapy. Relational psychotherapy values how the relationships in our life, from birth to death, impact how we understand ourselves, each other, our connections, ruptures and how we engage in daily experiences. Body-centered therapy uses the body to access, resource and heal unresolved trauma. Developing somatic resources, increases our capacity to feel safe in our bodies, gain a deeper knowing of ourselves, feel resourced & to heal. Together we will explore, what's happening in your life, where you struggle, your hopes, and how to move towards healing & thriving.

It includes heightening awareness through a somatic and relational approach with the focus on the present moment.
It may take some courage to reach out for support when not knowing what to do, who to come to, how to cope with. And that, together with feeling overwhelmed, or lost, or stuck, can be quite a lonely and painful experience. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where you can be seen, your experience can be recognized and validated, your needs and wants can be explored to bring you closer to a fulfilling and satisfying life of your choosing, where you may be authentically yourself.

That’s the gift of somatic & experiential learning! This means trusting the wisdom of your body, presence, and intuition.
When we’re facing a major life crisis or wanting to unpack the trauma of our childhood, anxiety and depression often get in the way and create a form of paralysis. In such painful situations how change can occur is extremely difficult to imagine. Psychotherapy is an organic process to help us change; seek our authentic self, develop our relationships with others, and to discover how to regulate our nervous system. We can relearn how to play i.e., by uncovering our (temporarily) lost sense of joy. We can reframe and update the self so as to create tools helping us navigate life’s beauty and paradoxes!

Narrative, Person-Centered, Somatic , and Existential Therapies, among others, inform my personal practice model.
I believe it's always possible to reconnect with our strengths, joys, values, and desires, even in times when we feel stuck: when it's particularly hard to see the meaning in our lives, when feelings of regret outweigh feelings of acceptance, when shame and anxiety hold us back from engaging with ourselves and our loved ones. In my work with you, I want to point out those sacred parts of yourself that might have been forgotten. I want to help you see the different paths you can take, and be alongside you as you choose and move forward.

I draw on somatic , emotion focused and attachment-based therapies to broaden your understanding of your experience, help you discover your inner strength and foster self-compassion.
I see psychotherapy as a chance to come back to yourself. When faced with challenges in life we can forget our strengths, values, and sense of self. Psychotherapy offers the chance to rediscover these things and uncover more. Together we can navigate life’s challenges while building new skills and resilience to create a stronger sense of self. The therapy space that we create together is one where you can discuss anything and explore emotions, experiences, thoughts, and behaviours in a space and relationship that is safe, supportive, and dedicated to your well-being.

  I use a client-centred approach that integrates narrative, cognitive-behavioural and somatic therapies to reconnect with yourself and regain your wholeness - physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Take a deep belly breath. Exhale - slowly. All of you is welcomed here. There is a lot out there telling us what our bodies should do and should look like. This can create a very strained relationship with ourselves and make it hard to feel good in our own skin. Our bodies hold memories that influence how we act and interact with the world around us. This can perpetuate negative feelings and behaviours. The journey to healing comes through processing and working through our body's store memories to come to a wholeness, comfort and confidence within ourselves.

Somatic Counsellors

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
