My passion is empowering people with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to break free from where they might feel "stuck" and reclaim their personal power so that they can live the life they were always meant to. I specialize in working with women and most often work with those who struggle with low self-confidence; have difficultly finding their voice; in a transition or crossroad in their life; struggling with or rebuilding after a relationship(s); need help setting healthy boundaries; have had difficult childhood experiences, and those who have experienced trauma.

I enjoy working with women, trans and non-binary people who have had long-term mental health struggles and a history of trauma. The people I see are often struggling with understanding the impact of childhood wounds, stressful relationships involving difficulty with intimacy or autonomy, coping with the after-effects of sexual violence and/or feeling stuck in emotions such as shame and loneliness. These people may be trying to reconcile their values and desired way of being in the world with intense reactions that seem to come out of the blue. I also do work regarding gender, sexuality and neurodiversity.

I am a registered Social Worker with over 6 years of experience providing transformative counselling for a diverse range of issues. It's important for me to help people find the root cause to what is making them feel, act, and think in ways that leave them stuck or hurt. I understand that the social context that we live in can become overwhelming for us due to the constant pressures to succeed. When we lose sight of who we are or feel we have fallen off track, we are left with a sense of worthlessness, guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression.

I work best with those that have the courage to show up and are open to being challenged in a fair, and warm manner. I want your messy self to show up and feel safe in your own space alongside me. I am a student of the Satir Family System's model and help the whole family grow alongside one another. I love the challenge of helping the client heal and being part of the process. My goal is to help clients associate self-responsibility with success. The Satir approach can help clients work through trauma and develop a greater sense of harmony and inner peace. I am a firm believer in therapy being client-driven and action orientated.

Our mind, body, and soul are so wise, always giving us the roadmap to health and balance if we pay attention. I believe that intrinsically we all desire for this alignment to occur, however, as humans we also experience suffering, trauma, loss, and fear that can create barriers to this innate process. I guide clients to compassionately and gently look within, helping them become more familiar with the various parts of themselves that may be causing imbalance.

Life is full of changes and challenges that can often feel difficult to navigate on our own. Maybe you feel overwhelmed, irritable, anxious or burnt out. Whether you are navigating parenthood or experiencing another source of life stress you don’t have to do it alone. I want you to feel heard and validated, I want you to step beyond the struggle to be the person, parent or partner that you want to be. I am passionate about supporting women, particularly mothers in all stages of parenting, to address concerns of anxiety, low mood, loss of identity, relationship changes, life stress, isolation and trauma.

Is your child now a stranger? Your once sweet baby grew up a bit and is now distant, aggressive, private, and a stranger. You never thought you'd see the day they'd cuss at you. It feels like a constant cycle of arguments, groundings, and harsh conversations that aren't working. They're yelling at you, you're yelling at them, and parenting just hurts right now. Nobody told you it would get this hard. Maybe it has escalated to drugs, gangs, and violence. All you know is you're afraid, frustrated, and panicked. You want your child back.

We all go through rough spots in life where we can benefit from time to reflect. These times can also be an opportunity to understand ourselves better, and make sense of harmful patterns. Throughout life, we develop thought and behaviour patterns in our response to stress, in our relationships, and in our daily habits. With effective tools and strategies, we can make sense of them, and let them go. This opens us up to a more authentic and healthy life.

Life can have way of disconnecting us from what matters to us, leaving us feeling anxious, depressed, and unfulfilled. It’s easy to feel stuck, hopeless, and adrift, but change is possible. Sometimes it takes deliberate, meaningful steps forward. Sometimes, we just need someone to hear our story and validate how we feel. Sometimes we need tools to cope with hard emotions, and other times we need to hear the crucial information those feelings are trying to tell us. Wherever you’re at, I’m here to help.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Shakespeare?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Shakespeare specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
