I have extensive training and knowledge in trauma and utilize various evidence-based approaches including CBT, DBT, EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing.
Life isn’t always easy. It can be hard, painful and even traumatic at times. Trauma and difficult life experiences can create challenges in many areas of life - it’s not uncommon to struggle with managing thoughts and emotions, relationships, and responsibilities. We do our best to lean on past ways of coping to help us through, and sometimes must acknowledge when more help is needed. Whether you struggle with emotional issues (anxiety, depression, PTSD, anger, low self-esteem), addiction, grief and loss, or relationship/family issues, I would welcome the opportunity to support your desire for authentic personal growth and healing.

My professional training includes Gestalt Therapy, Brainspotting, Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, and clinical mindfulness in addition to many years practising mindfulness.
You've learned to cope by controlling your feelings and while it's always worked for you in the past, lately it feels like the floodgate is going to break. You're often criticizing yourself and worrying about everything that could go wrong. You feel exhausted and overwhelmed and aren't sure how much longer you can keep the flood of emotions at bay. Before it all comes crashing down on you, you wisely know that it's time to make a change ... and you've come to the right place.

You’re getting calls from the school about your child. If he even makes it to school. Your sweet little baby is almost unrecognizable. She hates herself, she hates you, and you’re an idiot for trying to help. He spends most of his time in his room glued to the phone or ignoring you. You can’t figure out what’s going on, you're frustrated, tired, and at a loss as a parent as to how to help. I get it. Parenting is hard sometimes. If your child or adolescent is struggling with issues around peer relationships, anxiety, depression, school, parental separation, gender identity, ADHD, and other types of neurodiversity, I can help.

You’ve lost your way. You’re not the parent or partner you want to be. Reactions come quickly and regrets soon follow. Solutions aren’t coming as easily as they used to, and you alternate between anxiousness and despair. Some days you feel okay and others, like today, you admit that maybe you need a different approach. It feels as if you’ve lost hope and faith in your ability to cope with the many stresses that have come your way. A new child. A relationship conflict. A loss. And so, you find yourself here, contemplating this next step. You’ve come to the right place.

Having kids is amazing and wonderful. And very, very hard. No one really talks about how hard it is, which makes the rest of us feel like we're doing something wrong. The baby you walked the floor with at night is gone. You have no idea what changed and sometimes you have no idea what's going on. That sweet baby has become a sassy tween, a grunting teen, or is struggling in some way. It's affecting your relationship, your work, and (most importantly!) YOU. Your parenting style isn't working, or you're not sure you ever had one. Whether you want to work on you, your relationships, or your parenting, I would love to help.

You’re not sure how you got here, but you are not where you want to be. It feels so hard to just keep going. Things have happened and you are finding it hard to cope – an important relationship has broken down, you’ve lost someone or something significant, you’ve received a tough diagnosis, your family is in transition. Maybe you can’t reach your partner, or you feel like you are losing your kids. Something needs to change. You feel exhausted, hopeless, and all alone. I see the suffering behind the brave face you put on to get through the day. It’s a scary place, but I know that you can change, heal, and grow.

Even though your life looks good from the outside, something just doesn’t feel right. No matter how much you accomplish, you continue to feel guilty, small and like you’re not enough. When you think about it, you probably don't even know who "you" are or what you enjoy anymore. Maybe you never really did know. It may feel as though stress has taken over your life. Work is no longer fulfilling, your home life & relationships are suffering and you feel defeated at the end of the day. All of this leaves you feeling overwhelmed, down and confused, and you're not sure how to move forward.

I believe that psychotherapy can hep people achieve the highest level of emotional, psychological, and relationship functioning possible. By gaining insight into the patterns that no longer serve us and the confidence, skills, and support to make meaningful changes, genuine growth and fulfillment become possible. Whether it's difficulty coping with stressful fast paced lives, career or relationship issues, struggles with mood or anxiety, or simply wanting to understand ourselves better, psychotherapy can provide the expert guidance and confidential, non-judgemental, safe space needed to help you achieve your goals.

Life is filled with many challenges. We all use coping mechanisms that appear to make sense for these challenges. Sometimes these coping mechanisms stop working or cause us other difficulties when they are used for longer periods of time. I provide a safe and comfortable environment in which we can work together to develop skills and strategies that lead to change that can be maintained over the long-term. I am trained to offer Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have facilitated many treatment groups using these techniques. Mindfulness groups currently on hold.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. St Thomas Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
