I use therapies designed to treat trauma, primarily Internal Family Systems and EMDR, as well as attachment theory, to help you make sense of your symptoms, find self-compassion, and process the past.
I help adults heal from trauma, childhood abuse and neglect, and bullying, allowing them to feel more connected to themselves, to others, and to the life they want to live. Low self-esteem, extreme emotions, intrusive thoughts, social anxiety, and negative body image don't have to get in the way of your relationships and life goals. With therapy, you can improve how you feel toward yourself, find inner calm, and learn how to feel safe and secure in the present.

I am always learning and have trained in CBT, DBT, ACT, IFS , Attachment, Gender Identity, and Sex Therapy.
Life is tough, especially lately. Expectations are overwhelming, your to-do list keeps growing, and there's not enough time in the day. You may be trying to please everyone and end up feeling burnt out or never good enough. School or work feel like too much to handle, and self-care seems like another "should". If you're thinking: "I don’t know what to do. I’m exhausted. I’m so frustrated. I want to feel more like myself (again). I want things to change", know that you can build a life worth living. These are the things I have often heard from my clients - and we can work with that! Recovery is possible and life can get better.

At all stages of life individuals and families can find themselves wanting change. Approaches to counselling need to fit the needs of the individuals looking for support. My practice focuses primarily on supporting children, teens and young adults navigate issues related to relationships, family dynamics, self identity, anxiety and stress. Young children often have difficulty expressing themselves verbally. Children are invited to express themselves in counselling through art, puppetry, sand and play.

As humans we are emotional abut also critical thinkers, and sometimes meeting all our complex needs can be challenging. Life transitions can be difficult and having support, acceptance and guidance can help. As a counsellor, I use a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive lens and offer behavioral, narrative, and short-term solution focused practice to help with difficult times encountered throughout life. Anyone can be susceptible to anxiety, self doubt, perfectionism, overthinking and depression. I enjoy empowering individuals to recognize their own strengths and find a way through the tumultuous life paths.

Are you feeling like you've lost your spark and can’t seem to get it back? Do you notice yourself falling back into patterns you’re trying to move away from, or numbing out on Netflix and social media more than you'd like? It can be especially tough to seek support when our past efforts to be vulnerable haven’t been met with compassion and care (“At least it’s not...”, “I’m sorry you feel that way”, “What you really should do is...” - sound familiar?) Let’s talk about the messy stuff that's got you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or stuck today, in the interest of moving towards a more integrated, authentic, and hopeful tomorrow.

My practice is currently full and waitlist is closed. I help children, teens, and caregivers when life feels difficult. Kids can struggle with worries, anxiety, anger, behaviour, difficulties at school, or challenges with relationships. Caregivers also need support to cope with these challenges and to develop strategies to best support their child. I can help you find new ways to cope with challenges, create positive change, strengthen relationships, and improve individual balance. I provide counselling with compassion and unconditional acceptance.

You are tired of floundering - sick of just getting by. You remember a time when life or relationships didn’t seem this difficult. You might be feeling anxious, lacking confidence to make decisions or dealing with something haunting you from your past. It is now seeping into your day to day. You’ve come to the place where you want - or maybe need - to deal with this head on.
