Maintaining a sense of balance while dealing with a chronic illness can be challenging. The day-to-day process of keeping your body well can feel like a tiring and overwhelming full-time job, leading to distress, anxiety, depression, and/or burnout. Unlike a job, however, you can't rest and recharge by taking a vacation from taking care of yourself. So what can you do? Counselling can help you find your footing amidst this distress, so that you can get you back to achieving your overall goals in health and in life.

Are you struggling in your life and yearning for freedom from suffering? If you are, getting the support you need the most can make all the difference, especially if you’re a highly sensitive person, an empath, or dealing with a chronic illness . You may also be yearning to work with a therapist that can appreciate your deep spirituality, your unique spiritual gifts, or your profound connection to Nature. Or you may be an artist, dancer or musician and are moved to create. I am someone that loves working with people at the soul level. I too am devoted to helping create ‘the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible’.

I have experience in supporting a variety of mental health challenges such as anxiety & depression, with a specific focus in coping with cancer, life threatening illness & chronic illness , caregiver support, grief & bereavement, low self-esteem & abandonment.
It is common for individuals to feel stuck in their suffering. Recurring issues take up space within the mind & body, making it difficult to live in the present & within one’s full potential. I use an integrative, trauma-informed & strengths-based approach to build therapeutic relationships rooted in connection, compassion & empathy to help transform this suffering into deep healing. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including mindfulness, visualization & relaxation to help clients process their experiences & unresolved trauma & to help regulate their emotions in a healthy way.

I specialize in supporting adult who live with chronic illness & pain.
You're angry at your body, feeling disconnected from the people, places, activities in your life and restricted, unable to move forward. You've tried hard to manage your pain but it's either not working or you're terrified for the next flare-up or complication, uncertain of if or when that might occur. Fatigue, overwhelm or anxiety is getting in the way of things you want to do, the person you want to be or the life you want to have. Does this sound familiar? You're not alone. And though we likely share common struggles, I want to learn how these and related challenges are affecting you.

I use acceptance and commitment, trauma-informed and cognitive behavioural therapies to address issues with grief & loss, anxiety, chronic illness , relationships, childhood trauma, substance use, and identity.
Seeking therapy can be intimidating. Are you ready to talk to someone, but unsure where to start? Are you thinking, 'What's the point?' and 'No one can help me.' Are you worried about being judged? Criticized? You are probably feeling overwhelmed by these thoughts, and very alone. But what if you could talk freely and openly without being judged? What if you were offered practical tools to face your challenges? This is the space that I can create for you. I will use authenticity, respect, curiosity and kindness to help you confront and explore your challenges. I will help you build tailored strategies to confidently meet your goals.

I focused my master’s research on the interceptions of non-nociceptive pain and resilience, so have an interest in working with chronic pain and chronic illness .
Relationship-building and a strong therapeutic alliance come at the core of the work that I do. To me, it is important to create a space that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and relaxed, so that clients can feel open to share. I find importance in meeting each client where they are at, and with young clients (or young at heart) have been known to use creative formats for engagement such as: games, art, sand tray therapy, music or going on walks. I am able to do work with children, adolescents, and adult clients. I have over a decade of experience working with children/youth and adults, both in a counselling and teaching capacity.

Is your chronic illness holding you back? Please know that you are worthy of living a fulfilling life. You are so much more than your illness. It can be challenging to carry on day to day. People around you may not understand just how much planning it takes to simply function when you are constantly low on energy, or how much effort you put in every single day to show up for yourself and others in spite of the pain. I see you, and I am here for you.

Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness .

My counselling interests include anxiety, addictions, career guidance, chronic illness , depression, sexuality, self-image, grief, loss and bereavement, stress and life transitions, and behavioural / emotional issues due to anger, shame, guilt, low self-esteem, fear, pain, worthlessness and trauma.
Hey there! I hope that I can empower you to choose me as your therapist. What characteristics does a person hope to stumble upon to begin to bare their soul to a stranger? I know that trust, consistency, humor, curiosity, certainty, empathy, knowledge, professionalism and security are key components that would make it easier for me to open up. I have the opportunity for those who choose to utilize my unique training as both a registered psychotherapist and naturopathic doctor, to approach mental health through a wholistic approach. I focus on utilizing emotions as clues to investigate underlying patterns that are no longer adaptive.
