Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.

As a person-centered therapist I bear in mind that no two people are exactly alike, and craft approaches to treatment that incorporate concrete strategies for symptom relief and also allow for deeper exploration, drawing from CBT, Gestalt , and Existential modalities, and incorporating Attachment Theory when appropriate.
With a calm, non-judgmental and supportive approach, I consider it a privilege to work with my clients to feel better amid life's many challenges. Whether it's through modifying habitual negative thinking, developing greater self-awareness or moving past unhelpful patterns in relationships, I help my clients make positive changes in their lives. In therapy we would undertake a thorough exploration of your background and concerns, and collaborate to set concrete goals with the overarching aim of improving your mental health and well-being. My educational background includes degrees from Yale University and University of Toronto.

I came to Gestalt Psychotherapy after a decade of teaching yoga and meditation workshops in Canada, Greece, Mexico and Nicaragua. I noticed that wisdom practices (such as meditation, yoga, breath-work, and reflection) lead people to face vulnerability and perhaps even pain inside their minds, hearts and bodies. Many people have insights about themselves, but they believe they can mentally figure it out on their own. We are not meant to do all the processing on our own. The therapeutic relationship allows us the support of a compassionate and trained witness so we can explore what is present.

My style is relational Gestalt therapy: client centred, supportive, trauma informed and authentic, all held within a non-hierarchical and increasingly safe container that we build together.
I'm a queer non-binary practitioner. I strive to embody a safe place for folks under the 2SLGBTQA+ umbrella, including transgender and non-binary people. I work with depression, anxiety, childhood sexual abuse, exploring gender identity and gender expression. I enjoy working with creative people and highly sensitive folks. I work with couples, and support polyamorous/ non-monogamous relationships. This kink and sex positive practice prioritizes co-creating a safe and supportive space. We experience non-hierarchical and co-created, creative sessions.

I work with adults from many backgrounds who may be experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, relationship conflict, grief, loss, abandonment, or disappointment. My clients are looking to build their self-awareness. My training is in Gestalt psychotherapy. This approach invites you to explore your patterns and beliefs, and how you relate to yourself and your environment. I do not "fix" problems – rather, I explore the feelings that come up for you whether they be fear, anger, disgust, sadness, joy, or any combination of these.

Do you feel alone with depression, anxiety, social phobia, emotional eating or other issues that keep you from living a satisfying life? Do you feel weighed down instead of feeling alive and enthusiastic? I am here to walk with you so you can be supported to get to a new place in life. Don't do it alone. Sometimes people feel they should just get over it or work on things by themselves. As an experienced therapist I can assist you to make the journey faster.

Gestalt therapy has opened my eyes to what I always sensed - the mind and body are not separate entities.
I've been both the client and the therapist, and I believe strongly in the power of the therapeutic connection. It is an hour just for you; a space to find your voice, understand yourself, get out of your own way. This is what I offer my clients - a relationship where we work together in exploring what is going on for you, take the time to develop trust and tolerance for challenge, and where *everything* is open for discussion. My style is both direct and playful, curious and open-minded. I love working with clients who are ready for change, even if they don't know exactly what that might look like.

While trained in Adlerian Psychology I work eclectically, drawing off the techniques of Cognitive Behavioural, Jungian and Gestalt Therapy.
There are times in our lives when we can't see the wood for the trees and it seems as though we are falling backwards into the same hole. I believe that through the process of therapy we can uncover our strengths and find our way forward. I believe that we can grow and change by challenging our way of seeing ourselves, others and the world. I believe that changing these perceptions will help us feel better about ourselves and help us operate more effectively. My strength is in the way in which I work, which is both collaborative and creative.

What I love about Gestalt therapy is that it's more than talk therapy.
Every person's life is worth a novel (E Polster) What I love about my work is meeting you and your story. I offer an open space and a safe container to explore what you experience, feel, think, believe. I listen with empathy, and I respond with care from my own experience. Such a relief to be really listened to. As we explore together, we gain insight into the places where you're feeling stuck. We discover fresh perspectives and directions for change.

From a Gestalt perspective, our most valuable resource is our ability to develop, boundary, maintain and build healthy relationships.
With 14 years of experience as the head counsellor at The Michener Institute, I offer professional support for anxiety, depression, grief, trauma and family challenges. My use of both Gestalt Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) gives me a wide range of options for support for both individual and couples. Gestalt focuses on the 'here and now,' our body experiences and childhood patterns and helps us be present in our relationships. CBT has been rigorously tested in over 1000 studies, and is a therapy that supports depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), panic and anxiety, phobias and stress.

I practice Gestalt therapy, a relational embodied approach where we deepen your awareness of how you relate to others through how we relate together in the present.
Sometimes life is harder than we know how to handle. You want someone who is supportive and compassionate to explore your life with. You could be looking for support during a difficult time or recovery after a difficult ending or experience. You might have some confusion as to why things are going wrong in your relationships which you hope to strengthen or repair. Perhaps the pandemic turned life upside down and you are trying to find your balance again. Maybe you struggle with narcissism or have suffered in a relationship with someone who does and are looking for a therapist who can understand that pain.

In these fields, I blend trauma-informed, gestalt therapy with somatic interventions to support you in your healing.
I believe we are doing the best we can with the tools available. From my perspective, trauma can get locked in the body if there isn't enough safety to respond in the moment. I will support you in building on the wisdom you already have, and will creatively explore with you the places you feel stuck, shaky, or unmet. Through a relational and experiential process, I will bring attention and compassion to your suffering and untended needs. You can expect me to be warm, direct, steady, and responsive. Additionally, I am Queer & Trans affirming, kink-aware, and knowledgeable around polyamory/non monogamy.

My work integrates: Mindfulness work, Gestalt therapy (engaging in an experiential, relational and present-centered approach), EFT Tapping (releasing unhealthy habits/patterns, fears/limiting belief), Havening Techniques (creating a safe haven for delinking encoded traumatic memories caused by stressful events and building more resilience).
People seek change and choose to work with a therapist for a variety of reasons. It could be that you are struggling with making an important decision, experiencing difficulties in your personal/family/work relationships, or are easily overcome by stress, worry or anxiety in a world that is increasingly putting demands on your time and attention. Chances are you are feeling stuck in some way and want a fuller, richer, more satisfying life. As a Registered Psychotherapist, I specialize in working with Highly Sensitive adults (HSPs) who wish to engage in a creative, present-centered, neuroscience-informed bodymind approach to therapy.

I have been seeing clients for the past eight years: long enough to feel comfortable in my body with you; new enough to put additional care and energy into learning about your specific struggle and idiosyncrasies. The bedrock of my therapeutic approach is ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), however, I use aspects from other modalities, especially the relational component of Gestalt Therapy. Above all, my approach is gentle and full of warm humour. I am committed to meeting you where you're at. All imperfections and shadows are welcome.
