I also work in Brainspotting .
I accompany clients from a place of compassion, creativity, warmth, and humour as they move from the wounds of interpersonal, systemic, and intergenerational trauma (e.g., neglect, identity-based violence, childhood or intimate partner violence, premature death) towards fulfilling lives rooted in posttraumatic growth. In addition to working with clients who have experienced trauma and its related effects, I also work with clients who identify as experiencing stress (including anxiety disorders), sadness or depression, persistent guilt and shame, life transitions, grief, and existential questions related to life purpose and identity.

I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR), Brainspotting and Reconsolidation Therapy to heal trauma.
I work in a warm, gentle and collaborative relationship with you to foster your healing processes and growth. I have been a Psychotherapist for 8 years working with issues stemming from trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, loss, or role transitions. Many clients use psychotherapy as a safe container to understand themselves better and consider our work an integral part of their self-care practice. Many of my clients' goals are to learn to have more compassionate, aware and accepting relationships with themselves and to deepen their ability to connect with others in meaningful and more satisfying ways.

When someone experiences life changes such as grief, loss, relationship challenges, job loss, parenting, postpartum, trauma and abuse, these situations can evoke feelings of anxiety and depression. You will be supported through these challenges and life stressors by engaging in therapeutic conversations which will stimulate change and promote healthy coping strategies. Together, therapeutic goals are explored and established, with a core focus on your individual needs. Talk-therapy, Cognitive-Behavourial Therapy and Brainspotting are some approaches used as well as working with lifestyle modifications to achieve optimal results.

I have post-graduate training in Brainspotting (I am certified by David Grand & completed phases 1, 2, 3, 4), Internal Family Systems (IFS Institute Level 1 & advanced courses), MI, & DBT.
Real change, healing, and growth happens from the inside out. This is a process of mutual empowerment that occurs through our genuine relationships, as we bring parts of ourselves and hidden parts of our experience into the light of a compassionate awareness. In psychotherapy we can create an authentic space of acceptance to explore life's troubles with compassion, curiosity, and courage. Together we may discover, become, heal, and grow. Whatever brings you to psychotherapy, it is with respect and gratitude that I commit to walk beside you on this path. "A journey of a thousand miles begins where one is and taking a single step."

I offer relationship recovery therapy including the Attachment, Brainspotting and IFS modalities.
CONFUSED, DRAIN, or ALONE in your relationships? Are you putting the needs of others before your own? Are you changing yourself (like a chameleon) in order to feel appreciated? If the other person becomes your main focus and you modify your behaviors and subjugate your needs to keep the relationship going at any cost, you have codependency. CO-DEPENDENT PEOPLE are MAGNETS for ARROGANT, NARCISSISTIC personalities. The ensuing relationships can stumble along for a long time, requiring huge amounts of effort and energy to keep up until finally they fall apart. When they do, you feel betrayed and abandoned (co-dependent's biggest fear).

Hello! Here's a little about me: I have been a master's level registered social worker since 2013 and have been in clinical counselling / psychotherapy roles for 11 years. I specialize in working with youth and young adults (under 30) and their families with a myriad of challenges including addictions (substance use and behavioural) and mental health (anxiety, depression, adjustment, stress, difficulty coping, eating disorders, trauma, OCD and more) and parenting coaching / support. Pre-teen, teenager and young adult brains are different than grown adults, so they need therapy with a specialist in adolescence and early adulthood.

I am here to help you process the painful memories and emotions, explore patterns you feel stuck in and find new ways of managing issues in your life.
