Feel like #%!*? Let's talk about it. I offer a warm, creative, down-to-earth approach that is client-focused and collaborative. I work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework. I believe in bringing light and air to the parts of ourselves that need time and space to emerge. In our increasingly fragmented world filled with smart phones and twitter feeds, we could all use some good old-fashioned connection. I bring a deep curiousity about the ways we move through the world, the stories we tell ourselves and how our relationships are affected.

What if you could talk to your partner without it becoming an escalated argument every single time? How would you feel to have just one day, without feeling stressed, sad or anxious? How would you feel if you were able to have a healthy routine? How would you feel if you managed your anger effectively? Imagine if you were able to talk to someone without any judgement? How you feel to live without guilt? Good, right? I can help you with that. I give clients the space to talk about their feelings and thoughts to help them manage their emotions effectively and live fuller lives.

In therapy, you will explore “what's wrong for you” instead of “what's wrong with you”. There is enormous potential for self-awareness and self-growth with help from a listening, caring, and attuned therapist. I provide Relational Therapy, which holds that there is great potential for healing, growth and change from within a therapeutic relationship. I meet my clients with great respect, as a fellow traveler in the therapeutic journey. My wish is to cultivate a safe space for my clients to experience their emotions and encounter their beliefs about themselves.

We all struggle in invisible ways as our lives become inhibited by pressures and expectations of the day to day. We are often further debilitated by our less than perfect past, where old hurts and abandon influence our current choices. Most impacted are our relationships, our work, and our connection to the self. I believe therapy gives us the opportunity to both accept what was and is, and through growth orienting processes help us recreate ourselves into versions that feel more aligned with who we would like to become.

I view therapy as a creative process. A creative process requires connection, trust, and a sense of humour. I bring over a decade of experience in the arts to my work as a psychotherapist. I have spent my life working in supportive spaces where we try things, fail productively, and sometimes have collaborative breakthroughs. Together we will investigate the nuances of your story and explore alternate ways of being with your thoughts and feelings, mind and body. A sliding scale rate is available to those in need of financial relief in order to access therapy.

Change can be scary, however, growth lies in discomfort. I use a variety of techniques from my years of clinical experience to get to the root of the issues that may be affecting your well-being. Whether the problem feels small or big, old or new; I am open to bringing it into the room for closer observation and deeper discovery. Everyone has the capacity to change their lives. I recognize that we are each more than just our family, our relationships, our biology, or our circumstances, but also understand that our connection to each of these may profoundly impact our sense of wellbeing.

You may be feeling stuck in old patterns of behaviour, or ways of thinking or feeling about yourself and your relationships with others. This may leave you feeling unfulfilled, self critical or emotionally overwhelmed. When feeling this way, it can be helpful to reach out for support, to explore and unpack the struggles that you are experiencing personally and/or in your relationships. My role as a therapist is to be your guide in gaining insight into how these challenges came to be and to support you in understanding yourself with greater compassion, so that you are able to make positive changes for your present and future.

I believe that no one is immune to life's challenges and variabilities. Hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and other negative emotions can become overwhelming, affecting our overall wellness, leaving us exhausted. I help my clients overcome these difficult emotions by providing a non-judgmental, affirming and safe environment that respects boundaries and offers the space they require for their healing process.

Our mental health and well-being depends on the things that happen to us, how we make sense of those events and how we respond to them. If you are looking for an empathetic therapist, who endeavours to work collaboratively with you to find the best possible psychotherapeutic approach, we may be a great fit! I know that achieving, and maintaining, positive mental health takes effort and time, self-knowledge, self-compassion, patience and practice; together with evidence-informed psychotherapeutic interventions. It would be a privilege for me to be a part of your journey :)

Many people come to therapy to increase self-awareness, process painful emotions, resolve relational difficulties, shift narratives of fear or shame, or develop effective coping styles. My approach is grounded in empathy, warmth, and collaboration, and I hold the values of authenticity and inclusivity very close to my heart. I firmly believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the essence of healing and growth in therapy. As such, I strive to create a space where you feel safe, understood, and supported to achieve your goals.

Shé:kon! I'm an Indigiqueer, trauma-informed and open-minded practitioner who will affirm your strengths and experiences. People see me because they want support with concerns such as coping with the world, anxieties, fears or intergenerational trauma. Or maybe folks have identities, behaviours and relations that no longer serve them: maybe they would like to cut down on drinking or leave a relationship or enter a new line of work. They are looking for someone who offers gentle, non-judgmental and authentic support that is tailored for them and their needs.

Do you suffer from unwanted OCD thoughts and anxiety? Do you worry about bad things happening to you or those you love? Maybe you are having thoughts that you have harmed someone or may harm someone in the future. Perhaps you fear that you will become contaminated or that you will be responsible for a tragedy. Do you wash your hands excessively or check things like door locks or the stove? Or do you avoid things like knives, public restrooms, or anything that might trigger your fearful thoughts? Do you find that your OCD is interfering with your relationships?

CONFUSED, drained or ALONE in your relationships? Are you putting the needs of others before your own? Are you changing yourself (like a CHAMELEON) in order to feel appreciated? If the other person becomes your main focus and you modify your behaviors and subjugate your needs to keep the relationship going at any cost, you have codependency. CODEPENDENTS are MAGNETS for entitled, narcissistic personalities. The ensuing relationships can stumble along for a LONG time, requiring huge amounts of effort and energy to keep up until finally they fall apart. When they do, you feel betrayed and abandoned (codependent's biggest fear).
