Welcoming new clients- Trauma, anxiety and difficulties within relationships can affect your life in so many ways. In my practice, I can help you become "unstuck", to work through and move forward from the feelings, behaviors, memories or situations that are preventing you from living how you want to. If you're having a hard time coping with anxiety or low mood, struggling in a relationship or find yourself unable to move forward after a traumatic event, I can help. I use effective treatment approaches in a laid back, safe and nonjudgmental environment so that we can work together towards the changes you want to see in your life.

SPECIALIZATION in tweens/teens ages 12-18. I also work with adults. Do you want to make a change in your life? Find new ways to cope? Maybe I can help you. People may go to counselling when their own strategies are no longer working for them. I believe it's important to understand the root causes of certain thoughts and behaviours to develop the appropriate support. Such behaviours may include self-harm and aggression, which may mask underlying issues that I am hoping to uncover and help clients cope with.

Becoming a mother brings many emotional challenges. Most moms feel lost and alone at some point. Being a mom myself, I understand the struggles many mothers go through. Many mothers miss the early signs of depression because they think those are signs of pregnancy-related hormonal changes. These symptoms may be more than depression and sadness and have a negative impact on mom’s everyday functioning. As well, I specialize in helping those who have suffered the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or at birth. Miscarriage is not mourned publicly, and there are tools that help deal with this grief.

Whether it’s addiction based issues, such as substance use, gambling and sex, or emotional issues from our journey as young children, many of these issues can be concurrent with many mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, etc. Any one or a combination of these can keep us from finding our true, authentic selves. Through therapy, you can have the chance to be heard, believed and empowered. These are key to our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual recovery as individuals and together.

When we have suffered over a long period of time without much support or compassion, we come to rely on certain ways of being and relating that keep us safe but isolated from ourselves and those we love. This is normal considering what we have experienced. Trauma and lack of early nurturing skew our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. Neither can be trusted, and this determines how we are in relationship within and with others. At the core of all of this is our longing to be in nurturing relationships because the need to feel loved, wanted, and accepted are so innate in us. Therefore, feeling the converse: rejection and shame is a blow to our very sense of self. We reject because we really want to be needed and accepted, and yet we are afraid. The pain we feel in this dichotomy is profound.
