The body keeps the score. I help trauma survivors live full, and connected lives. I have many years of experience working with survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault , as well as harmful, abusive, or neglectful childhood experiences. Trauma may impact your self-esteem, or create relationship issues, anxiety, alienation from the body, feelings of being disconnected from yourself and others. A central focus of my work has been supporting clients impacted by trauma without the lens of pathology. That’s to say: there’s nothing wrong with you at all. Your way of being in the world was developed as means of protection.

Sex is a topic that continues to be associated with a lot of shame, yet it embodies elements of our identity, impacts our intimate relationships, and influences our physical, emotional and mental health. Empowering your sexuality and advocating for your sexual health and intimacy is what I strive for most! From low desire, to performance issues, kinks/fetishes, out of control sexual behaviour (sex addiction), sexual pain, sexual abuse /trauma, and identity confusion (amongst other sexual challenges), I am here to explore and assist you (and/or your partner) through these challenges and perplexities professionally and comfortably.

I have experience helping clients understand, address, and overcome the multitude of issues they encounter as result of trauma, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, or sexual assault .
I am a cisgender woman, with Mi’kmaw and Settler roots; as a result, the holistic therapy I provide is rooted in an anti-oppression approach. I was lucky enough to earn a Master of Social Work from the University of Buffalo. I chose that program because, unlike most other programs, it offered a specialty in utilizing a Trauma-Informed Focus. I was also trained in using EMDR. I have six years’ experience providing therapy; first in the USA and now in Canada. I’ve also provided services in community settings like the youth justice system and a community task force created to help deal with the human trafficking epidemic.

Our experiences change the way we think, feel, and act. Difficult experiences make us believe that others can't be trusted, that there's something wrong with us, and that we're not good enough. We feel out of control of our emotions and at the same time detached from them. We're on edge, hypervigilant, and feel like something is going to go wrong. Decision making is difficult, we think others can't be trusted, our relationships suffer, we stop finding joy in things we once enjoyed, and we're haunted by our memories.

If you are reading this, you have already made one of the bravest steps towards help and I commend you for taking this first step toward life-long change. One of the reasons I am passionate about my work is because I am blown away by the courage and resilience it takes to embark on therapy. I believe that psychotherapy is first and foremost about relationship – to be able to delve into even the scariest of topics with someone that you trust. Therefore, I do not believe in a ‘band-aid’ approach, but work to create lasting change by seeing how therapy, and our relationship, can acutally be a microcasm for changing your outside world.

At Allura, we know and understand that sexuality is one of the most fun but complicated parts of humanity, while also one of the hardest to find a safe and non-judgmental space to speak openly about. Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about your sexuality, sex life, or relationship? Do you wish for more connection and excitement with your partner? Do you sometimes feel stress or anxiety fill your life? We can help with that. Our clients are professionals, parents, sometimes monogamous and sometimes polyamorous, LGBTQ+ - but they all share one thing in common: they are struggling with their sexuality in some way.

We are ALL survivors of trauma. When we go through anything that the mind understands as traumatic, a part of us fragments. Most of the time, we aren't able to properly integrate the information and the experiences even after a lot of time goes by. We end up dragging around these fragments of ourselves who are still stuck in the trauma and due to this, we tend to attract and get triggered by situations that remind us of this trauma. Through various techniques, we can work with the fragmented self to integrate these experiences and memories to live a more fulfilled and complete life and achieve your therapeutic goals.

I lost 100lbs and currently kept it off for eight years (I started August 15, 2012). I remember at my heaviest weight, I wanted to talk to someone who had been there, done that & understood I so badly wanted to change and my frustration at not changing. I wanted someone who could quiet my mind when it worried about my weight and help me gain control of my body and life. I know what it's like to start losing weight, only to abandon the effort shortly thereafter. If you repeat that pattern and put your health and quality of life at risk, then you likely feel that there are issues that need to be addressed psychologically - I can help!

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!
