Sometimes, despite the love we have for our family , it seems that we struggle to have peace within our relationships at home. In supporting families to make the changes they are seeking, I utilize Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) which focuses on restructuring parent and child interactions. I always look at every situation through the lens of being trauma-informed and understanding the role of attachment.

You are feeling so overwhelmed that it's hard to remember what "good" felt like. Some days you wonder if you ever actually felt good. On top of it all, there's Covid, and all these unprecedented worries, and limitations. The minor strains you felt in your life are suddenly exploding. Perhaps you work from home as you try to balance the needs of your family , and struggle with juggling it all. Maybe you feel angry and dread an uncertain future. Many people feel hopeless, frustrated, anxious, and stressed. You are challenged to manage enormous change with little time to process it. You feel like you are at the end of your rope.

I provide my clients with a safe, welcoming and judge-free environment to discuss their most personal and intimate life struggles. Im honoured they trust me to help guide them. My focus is on helping people build healthy relationships, because when our connections are authentic we thrive. What’s more, our sense of love and belonging is fundamental to reaching our potential. In my 10 years of private practice, I’ve noticed people generally struggle with effective communication, lack of healthy boundaries, assertiveness and most of us question our intuition. I have experience in individual, couple, and family counselling.

I primarily work from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR Therapy lens, incorporating mindfulness and somatic therapy as needed.
*Offering virtual trauma therapy throughout Ontario.* While I believe that everyone carries within themselves the capacity to heal, during difficult periods in life our personal strengths can be impossible to access. At these times, we may need a caring and non-judgmental therapist to assist us. My intention is to provide you with a safe space to share your concerns and to help you to fulfill the hopes you have for your life. As each individual is unique, so is therapy. I adapt my approach to meet your personal goals and together we will come to identify the process that best serves you.

At certain times in our lives, we may feel like we are stuck. We struggle with maintaining our relationships with our significant other and families, have difficulty meeting work deadlines, or are unable to deal with the emotions of a traumatic event (ie. car accident or loss of a loved one). Counselling is a way to work through issues. Here are a few other reasons why individuals and couples may seek counselling: increased conflict and reduced connection due to anger, fear, depression, anxiety, sadness, self-esteem issues, grief, and trauma.

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, Dipl, Analyt, Psych, RP
Trained both as a Jungian psychoanalyst and as a marriage and family therapist , I offer in-depth, strengths-based treatment for a wide spectrum of personal and interpersonal issues and concerns.
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy relies upon careful listening (which in itself can be very helpful), and further to this, upon tuning into each client's unique capacity for insight, change, and fresh perspective, which I find are often born from their experience of "feeling heard." From my training as a Jungian analyst I also bring a proficiency for working with unconscious dimensions of problematic experiences and for discerning the meaning that such symptoms present when conceived of as challenges within that process of self-development that Jung called "the individuation process."

This helps family members understand each other as they experience changes.
Everyone is unique and encounters different life experiences. Some of these experiences change the ways we think, feel, and act. Children and youth might begin to say negative things about themselves, start to struggle with school performance and peer relationships, react easily and in ways that seem bigger than the situation, and experience physical changes like headaches or stomach aches. Another component of these changes involves looking at how adults are processing their responses to them. It is important for adults to know that supporting a child or youth, in addition to themselves, is not something they have to face alone.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
