I have completed Phase 1 and 2 trainings in Brainspotting (a brain-based therapeutic technique) and am passionate about making change at a root cause level.
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - Recognizing you want help and reaching out for it takes courage and isn’t easy. I believe that we all do the best with what we know and when we know better we do better (Maya Angelou). When you are ready I would be honoured to be the one who helps you know and do better. My approach is client centered and I work with you where you are at, at your pace and on what you are ready to focus on. I also practice from a strength based and trauma informed perspective. I aim to provide a space to do this that is comfortable, open and free of any bias or judgement; where you feel respected and empowered.

I also offer an intervention called Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) and I am trained in Level 1, 2 & 3 Brainspotting which helps people access, process, and overcome trauma, negative emotions, and pain.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do your thoughts keep racing from one thing to another? Do you find you are excellent at taking care of everyone else but keep neglecting yourself? I would like to help. I am passionate about helping people to move past the "shoulds" and move towards creating the kind of life they want to live. Most of the time when we are distressed we are worrying either too much about the past or the future, or are overly preoccupied by what we imagine other people are thinking about us.

I became a social worker because "your life is worth my time.” This is something I live by as I value each and every client I have had the opportunity to work with. I always feel blessed to join clients on their journey towards healing and wellness, and it takes immense bravery to take that first step and reach out for help. I work hard to create an environment that fosters safety and growth, and approach my practice from a strengths-based, anti-racist, collaborative lens. I have also begun the process of becoming trained in Brainspotting and have completed Phases 1 and 2.

My professional training includes Gestalt Therapy, Brainspotting , Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, and clinical mindfulness in addition to many years practising mindfulness.
You've learned to cope by controlling your feelings and while it's always worked for you in the past, lately it feels like the floodgate is going to break. You're often criticizing yourself and worrying about everything that could go wrong. You feel exhausted and overwhelmed and aren't sure how much longer you can keep the flood of emotions at bay. Before it all comes crashing down on you, you wisely know that it's time to make a change ... and you've come to the right place.

IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITY - that there is a way to think differently; to feel differently; to live differently. Within each of us, we possess the tools we need to heal & be happy. But sometimes we make unhealthy choices in order to cope with emotional &/or physical pain. Despite our best intentions we can spiral downward, negatively impacting our relationships, careers, physical health & lifestyle. I believe that with support, change can happen. I am registered with a Master of Social Work & over 30yrs of clinical experience in the areas of trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, parenting, life transitions & mindfulness.

Evening Availability - I love humanity and have a sincere passion for supporting all individuals as they journey through this complex and (often times) confusing thing we call life. I'm someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously and prides themselves on their humility. That said, I am the author of my own life and you are the author of yours and I allow this thought to inform my approach to therapy. I believe supporting someone means to 'meet them where they are at', without judgement and without an agenda.

You: "I am READY to feel better." Me: "Right on. I've got the tools. Let's get to work." This whole therapy business may seem a little weird to you, but you have been feeling a deep lack of connection to the things that really matter to you and you don't want to keep feeling this way. You've had some struggles earlier in your life, or more recently, that have impacted how you relate to others and how you related to the world in general, and you're not liking how this restriction, this disconnect feels. You've wanted to be a better coworker, partner, or father, and you're feeling really ready to invest the time to make it happen.

I utilize counselling, brainspotting , somatic healing, and hypnotherapy.
Do you struggle with people-pleasing, perfectionism, or procrastination? Perhaps you struggle with all three? Do you struggle to make long-term changes despite your best attempts? Does life feel dull and uninspiring? Is anxiety, depression, or your self-image impacting your ability to enjoy life fully? Are you wanting to improve your relationships or connect with others in a deeper way? The reason you feel stuck is not your fault.

Imagine if... You weren’t constantly worried. You were confident in your abilities at home and work. Your past was only a distant memory instead of a ghost in your present. You had a space where you felt safe to talk about anything that is troubling you. You had someone you could talk to without fear of judgement or inadequacy. Stop feeling exhausted and start feeling stable. The use of psychotherapy can help you find yourself again, we understand you don’t want to feel this way forever. Our therapists are highly trained in a variety of issues and approaches. Let’s find the perfect therapist for you!

I work with individuals, families and couples struggling with trauma, relationship struggles, tough family dynamics and parenting. When you have experienced adverse events in your childhood or recent trauma you may have difficulties regulating your mood, feeling joy, advocating for yourself, and may often feel unworthy or undeserving of positive things. Life events can leave us worried about being both physically and socially safe, as well as lacking a sense of belonging. Anxiety is a common feeling, leading to low mood, anger, intrusive thoughts, failed or chaotic relationships. Living this way can lead to burnout.

It can be incredibly challenging to navigate the ebbs and flows of life when you feel anxious, depressed, or disconnected from yourself or others. You may become overwhelmed with thoughts that impact your view of self, leading you to believe that something is wrong with you or that you need to be fixed. I support youth (10+) and young adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, and those struggling with their sense of self-worth, perfectionism, and people-pleasing. I use a compassionate and collaborative approach that encourages you to lean into these difficult thoughts and painful emotions that we as humans typically avoid.
