I strive to integrate an anti-oppressive and trauma -informed practice through constant education and receiving quality mentorship so I may serve the diverse needs of clients.
Do you have an innate sense that there may be a connection to the past that keeps you stuck or repeating disempowering or even destructive patterns ? Do you recognize that living with chronic stress, depression or anxiety is not the ‘'new normal’ for you anymore. Do you feel overwhelmed or even burdened by the people in your life and often experience disconnection from others and yourself? Have you found that traditional talk therapies have only gotten you so far, and are hitting a roadblock that has left you feeling discouraged?

I'm queer and I offer trauma therapy rooted in my anti-oppressive and intersectional values.
Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

In the roles of mental health nurse, counsellor, educator, program developer, and lecturer (Uoft) I come to my private practice with 31 years of clinical experience working in the world of people suffering with mental health, trauma , grief and addiction issues.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Is it intolerable to be around people yet painful to be alone? Are you in awe of your own circumstances? If these are some of your thoughts and fears I am here to listen and help. We become powerless and hopeless with our perceived loss of choice. Reaching out can be the first step to untangle the myths that you have created about yourself, others and the world around you. Through sharing and finding a new voice, curiosity can be renewed and with that journey - hope. You no longer have to be held hostage by your feelings, actions, thoughts or relationships. Compassion is key.

I draw upon psychodynamic theory, trauma -informed practices, attachment theory and solution-focussed therapy to form a personalized approach.
I believe that the most worthwhile challenges are those that we encounter within ourselves; ones that we may feel stuck in from time-to-time because they require us to face our greatest fears. Many people seek therapy because they are not sure how to move forward. My goal is to help you find solid ground, and also to discover the sense of freedom, joy, and equanimity that can come with greater self-knowledge and personal growth. I work with adults of all backgrounds on issues related to self-esteem, life transitions, occupational stress and burnout, depression, anxiety and grief.

I have devoted my career to working with children, youth and adults affected by trauma .
Do you wish things were different? I work with diverse clients facing life's transitions and challenges. My theoretical framework is relational, using both talk therapy and/or creative/expressive arts modalities. Following your lead, I listen/witness and attune carefully in order to attend to your specific need. We start with where you are most comfortable, which means that talking, imagery, dreamwork and silence are all welcome. Although I work flexibly between short term talk therapy (psychodynamic psychotherapy) and expressive/creative arts, we safely build our relationship, while co-creating in our therapeutic studio space.

You may have wondered at times, "Will I ever recover?", and I am here to let you know that change is always within your reach. It takes a lot of courage and vulnerability to begin a journey towards healing, and yet every human is entitled to a life that reflects their core values, strengths, and truest self. I believe that self-exploration is key to any change process, and accessing therapy is a brilliant and brave way to ignite this and to welcome yourself into an exciting new chapter of your life.

I work with families of children who: are highly sensitive; have histories of trauma or loss (including adoption); have behavioural or developmental challenges; are on the Autism spectrum; are neurodivergent; etc.
Nothing ever really prepares us as parents for the times when things don't go as we had hoped for with our child - particularly in regard to developmental, behavioural, or mental health issues that we are faced with. I'm here to help shoulder some of the weight you've been carrying, and provide a bridge for you in helping your child to reach their full potential. Everything can be broken down into small and manageable steps, and even small shifts can produce significant change and offer much needed relief. Please note that I am currently focusing on children who are 0 to 5 years of age, as well as working through my waitlist.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma , body image issues, low self esteem, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been in the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and effective interventions.

Taking a trauma -informed and embodied approach in our work together, we can learn to practice openness, curiosity, and to safely be present with ourselves.
When life begins to feel challenging and overwhelming, it can be difficult to create space for calm and stillness. We may even seek to avoid the quiet altogether, fearing the thoughts that arise or the emotions we keep buried beneath the surface. It often feels easier to distract ourselves from our thoughts or to numb and detach from the challenging emotions that inevitably emerge. Therapy can provide us with a space to turn inward and deeply connect with ourselves, allowing us to bring awareness to our patterns, better understand our needs, move towards acceptance, or even work towards change.

Hi there, and welcome! My name is Julia and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist with 11 years of experience working in counseling and mental health. I practice a creative, integrative approach that I tailor to each client. I believe that traumatic events (i.e. abuse, bullying, violence) lead to mental health challenges. My approach helps you uncover, understand, and process the awful things that happened to you. As scary as it sounds, talking to a supportive, skilled therapist about your trauma does make you feel better. In fact, my clients often share that they feel less symptomatic, understood and lighter after just one session.
