I work from an attachment-based trauma treatment perspective that focuses on the mind-body connection.
I enjoy working with women, trans and non-binary people who have had long-term mental health struggles and a history of trauma. The people I see are often struggling with understanding the impact of childhood wounds, stressful relationships involving difficulty with intimacy or autonomy, coping with the after-effects of sexual violence and/or feeling stuck in emotions such as shame and loneliness. These people may be trying to reconcile their values and desired way of being in the world with intense reactions that seem to come out of the blue. I also do work regarding gender, sexuality and neurodiversity.

My therapeutic technique also incorporates Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based, ego state, neurobiological, and attachment-based therapies.
In her book The Gifts of Imperfection, Bréné Brown says that “owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do”. It is my privilege as a Psychotherapist to provide space and support as individuals dive into the stories of their lives and do the hard work of healing. Trained in EMDR, and other types of evidence-based trauma therapies, I’m grateful to be able to provide an opportunity for individuals to release the emotional, mental, and physical blocks caused by trauma and other difficult life circumstances.

Along with these different modalities, I work from an attachment-based and trauma informed lens.
It is part of the human experience to have ups and downs in life. My passion for being a therapist is holding space for those struggling or navigating through life’s difficulties. As a client centered therapist, it is my goal to provide clients a warm, safe and accepting environment where you can feel comfortable to share your story. Each individual person is unique, and it is important to me to understand all of the aspects of a persons life that make them who they are. Together we will collaboratively develop goals that would be meaningful to you that are realistic, achievable and bring you closer to the life you want to live.

There are valid reasons behind your behaviour and emotions. We function best in an environment where we feel safe, loved and valued and can develop healthy relationships and a positive sense of self. We can then better explore life from a position of mental and emotional well-being. Perhaps this has not been your experience. Trauma and distress can affect your feelings and behaviour. The hurt may have left you feeling unsafe, devalued and negative towards yourself. You may struggle with poor coping options that have caused harm and suffering to yourself and those around you. You might be finding it difficult to navigate life.

You're not sure when it happened but all of a sudden you don't recognize the person sleeping next to you. It's frightening and heartbreaking to think that this could be the end of your relationship. Maybe it started after the kids were born or maybe you're wondering if you're not as compatible as you thought. There's this distance between you that can no longer be ignored. You've become simple roommates but you want so much more from your relationship.

Are you feeling stuck in an older version of yourself that you know is ready to change? Do you live with the feeling that there's a truer version of "you" that's dying to come out? Are you held back by complicated relationships from your past, that seem to keep you in a holding pattern? Are you a couple stuck in a pattern that keeps you apart? Often we hit a place where we know we are ready for a transition, but we're just not sure what to do next. That's when therapy can be the most powerful. It's my greatest privilege to walk alongside folks just like you who are journeying towards a more meaningful, fulfilled, authentic life.

Everything was okay until it wasn’t any more. You're tired of feeling so stuck, overwhelmed and ashamed all the time and you’re ready to make a change. You’ve probably tried so many times to make these changes on your own but it’s only taken you so far and it’s been nearly impossible to keep from slipping back into old behaviours. This leaves you feeling hopeless, deflated, and weak. But let me tell you something: you’re not supposed to have it all figured out on your own. Really. If you are ready to take back control of your life and you have the desire to do things different -- that’s all you need to get started.

You are a devoted parent who longs to feel close to your child but the teenage years are giving you a run for your money. You’re tired of walking on eggshells, tired of the fights and the silences and too tired to take care of yourself. You need someone to listen and help you to understand your teen’s behaviour. You want to connect with your child and feel more confident as a parent so you can enjoy one another again and support them on their journey to adulthood.

The clients I serve in my practice are women, people of colour, indigenous communities and lgbt2sq identified people. You’ve been in therapy before and although you’ve seen results you aren’t yet at the place you want to be. Feelings of stress, anxiety, stuckness and depression are familiar to you. You’ve been going in circles in your relationships and your career and now you’re ready to dig deeper. Your core beliefs keep pulling you back into old patterns like people pleasing, controlling behaviours, co-dependency, and difficulty prioritizing yourself and identifying your needs.
