Within each of us lies the vision and hope for the life we want to live. Yet, we can feel overwhelmed by inner or outer challenges, fears, negative beliefs, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression. In many years of practice, I have seen the resilience of the human spirit. As a Spiritual Psychotherapist, I work with traditional approaches, as well as those rooted in Transpersonal Psychology, Archetypal Psychology and Shamanism which recognize the power and strength inherent within to facilitate change. My aim is to act as guide as clients address past pain and present circumstances that limit the ability to live a life in full bloom.

Life can be downright difficult, disappointing, stressful and unfair at times at times. But there is no reason to struggle through life’s challenges alone, or give up because the feeling of being stuck can make you feel powerless. If you are seeking help individually, as a couple, or a family, I strive to make you feel understood in a supportive, warm and sensitive manner as we discuss, explore and develop deeper insights into your current challenges. I encourage you to visit my website to learn more.

You feel exhausted as your mind and body remind you each moment of everyday about how strongly your life has changed. Being consumed with worry, leaves you feeling as if life is just overwhelming. Fearful and on edge for when the next change will arrive in your life requiring you to adjust again. The stress feels fierce as it has impacted your daily life. It leads you to ruminate about what has happened, as you wish it was different. You're left feeling "stuck". Trapped in your thoughts, and feeling unsure how to overhaul your life. Just desiring a sense of peace in your mind is a starting point for you to seek help through therapy.

Through my work I believe that compassion and empathy are two of the most important qualities when seeking support. From time to time life can feel overwhelming and heavy, due to many of the experiences that we are faced with from Life Transitions, Substance Use (or Abuse), Gambling/Gaming Concerns, Trauma Events, or Mental Health Concerns; I am here to support you through it. I provide both individual and family therapy.

Our mind, body, and soul 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 suffering, 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:

Becoming a parent has been challenging. While you remained hopeful that these emotions would settle out once the baby was born, you are facing the daily disappointment that things have not become easier. This is not how you normally react. You're quick to snap, become easily overwhelmed, and feel alone and discouraged. Rather than feeling enamoured with your growing family, you notice how much your relationships with your family members are suffering. You feel like you're just not yourself anymore.

When meeting with clients, I prefer to utilize a range of therapeutic approaches that best meet the needs of each client as a unique individual. Some of the primary approaches that I draw from include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), person-centred therapy, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), mindfulness, and cognitive-based approaches. In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I practice from an intersectional, anti-oppressive, and holistic lens to ensure that clients feel safe, respected, and understood.

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.

Life IS hard. We expect this. Yet, life is harder than necessary sometimes. Especially when old stuff drags us down and/or new stuff swamps us. I have no magic wand to make your life easy. What I offer are conversations where I bring 20+ years of learning and experience to support you in figuring out how to live your life with dignity and peace. I am an AAMFT Clinical Fellow & Approved Supervisor and am trained in EMDR. Anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and relationship challenges are common reasons why people talk with me.

Perhaps you're down or anxious, feeling trapped or distressed? Maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you want to lead? Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support and guidance. Therapy is a process of insight building, growth, and self-discovery. In my sessions I promote emotional intelligence, deeper emotional connection with others, and helping you broaden your understanding of your behaviours, feelings, or reactions (yes, we don't always know why we do some things we do). I have both the professional and life experience to help you get back on track. ​

Couple and Family Therapist specializing in strengthening individual wellbeing and relationships. I approach work with clients, including individual clients, from a relationship perspective in recognition of the significant impacts our relationships, past and present, have on our lives and wellbeing. I also take a systemic approach, viewing individual and relationship difficulties in consideration of the history and current conditions of people's lives. It is a respectful and comprehensive approach that effectively leads to positive changes, and that is rooted in a strong therapeutic relationship.

Accepting new clients. Something on your path has brought you right here to this moment. I want to invite you to consider that the reason you are here searching, goes beyond the pain, the struggles and the suffering. I want to invite you to consider that you are here because a part of you knows that you can move forward, knows your strength and your ability to heal. I believe that part of you can be your guide and your inner compass. I encourage you to listen and to trust that part of yourself. I am here to help you connect to your inner self, to heal from your past, and reimagine your future.

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.

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.

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.
