Experiencing relationship anxiety and trauma? Feeling stuck between multiple worlds? We are relational beings and things that happen with people around us have a big impact on how we feel and act—even if it's something that happened a long time ago. These unprocessed events and trauma can make you feel stuck, which might show up as anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. In my therapy, I will help you understand why you feel, think, and behave the way you do and learn new skills so you can make the changes you want, to live a more authentic life.—Please note that my service is all online.

Relationships should enrich your life—they should bring you more joy, depth, and safety than you’d experience without them. In my work, I know what’s at stake—I know about the comfort and vitality that secure relationships can bring us, and I know too about the fear and loneliness that we can fall into when by nature, we’ve stopped paying attention. These lows can leave us remembering our early days and wondering where we’ve gone wrong, or whether we’ve ever been right for each other from the start. I know the intense pain of losing hope.

Life is challenging enough without adding a pandemic to the mix. Much of what we used to rely on to bring happiness day to day is now limited. So it is understandable we are more vulnerable to feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or experience strain in our relationships. This feels familiar to the clients I see, who describe being stuck, depressed, feeling angst, and not sure why or how to stop it. I've been there too, stuck with pain from the past and unsure how to throw the baggage away. I can help you find some peace, with a few satisfying 'A-ha' moment here and there, so you can release the toxic patterns for good!

You? You constantly find yourself replaying memories of the painful things your loved ones said or did to you in the past. You hold resentment towards the people that hurt you, and you fantasize about the day that you tell them how you feel. You often get lost in the "why" & "what ifs", and can struggle with feeling unloved or abandoned. Or, perhaps you are realizing that you learned to prioritize everyone else's needs before your own. Now, you constantly over-function for others, and feel like you can't depend on anyone. You are tired of showing up for everyone and chasing achievements in hopes that someone finally sees your worth.

You’ve been through a lot. Life and its challenges keep you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and confused, like heavy boulders in your way. Perhaps, you are going through a difficult transition and finding it hard to adjust or something in your life just doesn’t feel right. You might be feeling numb, angry, sad, hopeless, scared… you may be feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. You might not know where or how to start. Therapy can be an intimidating experience as it requires us to open up to our inner world. Taking the first step is hard and I value the courage it takes to make that first stride.

Unresolved trauma, attachment injury, and old emotional wounds from the past create a fractured foundation. They affect our sense of self, make us feel empty inside, and lead us to believe that there is something terribly wrong with us. However, some symptoms that we experience as adults, such as excessive self-blame, addictive behaviours, anxiety, depression, a constant need to please others, sensitivity to rejection, and being easily overwhelmed, are caused by what failed to happen for us in childhood. Let me help you explore the part of you that was hurt and still carries the trauma and suffering.
