I am a deeply empathetic and dedicated social worker and psychotherapist, with more than 15 years of experience working with a diverse range of clients. I help individuals to cope with trauma, manage mood instability and anxiety, improve their relationships, and delve into gender or queer identity exploration. As a devoted client-centered and trauma-focused practitioner, my ultimate goal is to establish a warm and secure therapeutic environment in which clients can safely shed their old survival strategies and connect more deeply with their authentic selves.

You will have access to leading-edge, evidenced-based therapeutic interventions including, Somatic Experiencing (a body-oriented/nervous system approach), Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Internal Family Systems, Trauma Focused CBT, and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (using memory to integrate and heal past experiences).
I have a strong belief in your capacity to change. I’ve worked for over 25 years supporting people who are struggling from both physical and emotional pain. I help people find stability and reconnect with themselves, as they do the important work of reclaiming and changing their life for the better. If you have done "healing" work in the past and feel like it is time to tackle new challenges or wish to experience new and innovative therapy interventions, we might be a great fit.

At different times in our lives, we are handed challenges, and are faced with adversity. In these situations, we may feel like we need some support; someone wise and compassionate who can provide the opportunity to be heard, and the necessary guidance to move forward. You may be dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, problems in a relationship, grief/loss, trauma/post trauma, addiction, parenting, separation/divorce; or maybe you have just lost direction and feel like you need some realignment. Psychotherapy, coaching, or a combination of both offer you the opportunity to explore difficult or confusing terrain, to understand

You WORRY. You can't stop thinking. You are in your head too much. Am I good enough? What do they think of me? What does this headache mean? What if this or that happens? You may describe yourself as an over thinker, people pleaser, perfectionist, hypochondriac, or very critical of yourself. You are SURE this overthinking is blocking you from things you want in your life - strong relationships, inner confidence, peace of mind - but you don't know how to stop it!

We all face hurdles in life, and I believe individuals possess an inner wisdom that can help overcome these obstacles. I strive to create a setting where therapy can be fun and empowering as we work together to discover this inner wisdom. My goal is to foster a judgement free environment, enhancing opportunities to reflect, be heard, and develop skills to achieve confidence extending beyond the therapeutic setting. I believe our body gives us cues that as we learn to tune into can encourage us to understand, process and cope with our emotions - this can support one to navigate both concerns and resources with a renewed capacity.

I have a passion for long-term change in mindset. Crippling negative self-talk fuels low-confidence, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and other mental health challenges that leave us feeling stuck: keeping us angry, alone and unable to reach our potential. A negative mindset impedes communication style, causing us to feel disconnected and destroys our personal relationships. I work with individuals from an evidence based cognitive behavioural perspective, while integrating emotions focused and narrative therapy. A healthy mindset is essential for emotional regulation, personal growth, healthy relationships and overall success!

Being a mom can be so hard. It feels like you spend so much time and energy taking care of everyone and everything, yet you can never catch up. There’s always more to do, and often it feels like you’re not doing any of it right. There’s no manual for motherhood, so we’re left to muddle through as best as we can. And as if our own expectations, worries, and pressures aren’t enough, there are so many demands placed on us by society that it often just feels impossible. It’s no wonder being a mom can be so challenging.

Many people look for positive changes, which is often through their own life experience, though still find themselves feeling unfulfilled or noticing similar repetitive, unhealthy and destructive patterns showing up. By working on your self-awareness, the relationship with yourself, and your experiences in life, you will feel more confident and prepared, you then managing situations in different areas of your life in a more effective and assertive way, enhancing the respect and love you have for yourself.
