I have EMDR training to help individuals process their experiences of trauma so that they can start to experience life without the carrying the pain of trauma with them day to day.
In counselling, I work to help individuals to identify, strengthen and develop their coping skills by creating an empathic space to explore feelings.  I am passionate about offering strength-based counselling to help individuals work towards well-being and find ways to maintain connections with what is important to them. I draw on a number of modalities to individualize counselling for your needs and strengthen your existing coping skills and learn new ways to challenge difficult thoughts.

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.

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.

Our mind, body, and souls are so wise, always giving us the roadmap to health and balance if we pay attention. I believe that intrinsically, we all desire for this alignment to occur, however, as humans we also experience hardship, trauma , loss, and fear that can create barriers to this innate process. I guide clients to compassionately and gently look within, helping them become more familiar with the various parts of themselves that may be causing imbalance. As a Registered Psychotherapist trained in several evidence-based modalities, a large part of my therapy also includes spirituality teachings from individuals such as:

I practice from a trauma -centered lens that is rooted in attachment, systems, social learning, conflict, and psychodynamic theory.
I believe in a common humanity, which understands suffering as a universal human experience. What this means is that you are not alone. Even the feeling of isolation is part of the human experience. Whether you are feeling distressed, would like to deepen your understanding of your self, or would like to experience more joy and fulfilment in your life, I offer a safe space for you to unpack and be yourself. As someone who has personal experience healing from trauma , I have an appreciation for how past experiences and traumatic events can get in the way of our ability to form trusting relationships with others.

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.

I have been a psychotherapist for the past 30 years. I specialize in a somatic (body-mind) approach to resolve issues that interfere with one's happiness and well being.

As a Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor, I offer services for clients experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD , relationship challenges, grief, and more.
People come to therapy with the hope of enhancing their life story in a meaningful way, yet many find themselves held back from realizing this hope due to painful emotions, relationship problems, and trauma . Psychotherapy can be the chapter in a person’s life where stuck circumstances finally start to change. Psychotherapy can be the chapter where a person grieves their losses, confronts their deepest fears, heals deep-seated wounds, and finds within themselves the courage and strength to go forward with greater confidence, joy, and peace.
