Being human means experiencing a wide range of emotions which are often overwhelming and hard to manage. Society's rigid expectations can leave anyone feeling isolated and ashamed when their emotional responses don't fit the box. Emotional turmoil can severely impact relationships and self-perception, particularly after trauma, leading to depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, or unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as addictions, self-harm, suicide, or disordered eating. I am here to reassure you that you're not alone in these struggles and to accompany you on your path to reclaiming control and fostering a positive self-view.

As most of my current clients, you have probably been feeling overwhelmed by your negative thoughts, frequently tired, anxious, stuck in the past, easily distracted, angry, unmotivated, and have been avoiding uncomfortable feelings. You may have contemplated contacting a therapist on more than one occasion to learn how to cope with difficult emotions, reduce stress, and to improve your overall well being. Often, selecting a therapist and booking the intake appointment is intimidating, however after taking the initial step many clients report a sense of relief.

I have 14 years of life-coaching experience combined with a Master's degree.

Productive psychotherapy occurs within the context of a positive therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client, so often times the first one or two sessions are focused on a consultation to review the client’s concerns and for us to see if we are a good fit to work together. During this time, I will make recommendations for a treatment plan and will ask for the client’s feedback.

Personal relationships, anxiety/fear/depression and trauma are my main areas of interest. Each of these can negatively influence and impede us from making positive changes in our lives. It is my belief that our well being is founded, first and foremost, on empathetic, supportive, relationships. Therefore, our work together, whether one to one or with your partner or another family member, will in part, entail an exploration of patterns of behaviour, coping mechanisms and major life events that help answer the questions 'how did I get here?' and 'why do I feel so bad?'

I support adults struggling with PTSD and complex trauma. Whether there was an exact moment things changed, or whether you’re dealing with the long-term effects of ongoing pervasive events, trauma can be confusing, isolating, fragmented, and takes its toll. My aim is to help clients through their transition towards understanding, clarity, self-acceptance, and growth without the fear of judgment. Using an integrative trauma-informed approach I have additional training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

Do you have feelings that are difficult to put into words? This struggle to understand and express can lead to anxiety, a lack of energy or focus, a sense of being disconnected from others- and yourself. Making art can help to get those thoughts and feelings out, and help you find your voice. You can begin to experience a shift- a sense of purpose that comes from bringing out your own strengths. I bring my background and experience in teaching, art and psychotherapy to my practice, offering children and adults a space to explore and express their thoughts and feelings- and to get creative in how to move forward.

You're not feeling like yourself. Even though you put on a brave face, you question if anyone truly sees, hears, or understands you. In your most honest moments, you recognize that these feelings have been present for a while. Someone close to you— maybe a friend, family member, or even your partner— has suggested you might need some support. You've searched your symptoms online, yet you still feel uncertain about what you're experiencing. You've even attempted therapy before, but it felt like it barely scratched the surface. You're looking for something deeper, but don't know where to start. You're not alone in this experience.

Veritas is Latin for truth, which is a central value in my therapeutic approach. People have a tendency to mask what they are actually experiencing, subscribing instead to behaviour dictated by social norms. Over time, suppressed emotional suffering manifests itself in disorders such as anxiety, explosive anger, panic attacks, addiction, and depression. While many modern therapies focus on treating surface symptoms (band-aid solutions), I believe in getting to the root of the suffering to help clients gain insight so that they can truly grow, heal, and flourish.

Each of us occasionally needs help identifying solutions to life’s struggles. Other times, despite knowing solutions, we cannot take action. Regardless of current situations, emotional struggles, or past experiences, therapy helps us on a path of discovery to identify challenges and co-create solutions. I believe counselling allows us to work together, creating a life with increased happiness, emotional stability and fulfilling relationships.
