I incorporate treatment interventions and strategies from psychodynamic , narrative, experiential, and humanistic orientations.
"Manifest the change you seek". People tend to seek therapy when they want to make a change in their lives or way of being and need a little help or guidance making that change. I have several years of experience providing individual psychotherapy to adult clients using evidence-based approaches. More specifically, I provide Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Chronic Insomnia.

Rather than emphasizing learning new skills, psychodynamic psychotherapy uses the experience of the therapeutic relationship as a way of working through symptoms or problems.
It's no secret that life can be hard. Sometimes we struggle alone and feel like things will never get better. As an experienced therapist, my job is to work with you to develop a psychotherapy relationship that is safe, meaningful, and authentic. As this occurs, we explore and work through the life issues that led you here, and possibly some additional ones. Psychodynamic therapy is not typically brief or short-term. If you are interested in working on deeper issues to promote lasting psychological growth and healing, please get in touch with me. Alternatively, I also offer relatively shorter or open-ended psychotherapy.

While I am trained in numerous techniques and use a variety of methods (including Intensive Short-Term Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, EMDR, Emotional Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology & Mindfulness), I respect the uniqueness of every individual and will always implement a tailored approach that caters to specific individual needs.
In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma, body image issues, low self esteem, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been in the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and effective interventions.

My orientation is trauma-informed and psychodynamic , as I seek to provide you with the room you need to explore how your past may be impacting, or even overwhelming your present.
Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

Using a specialized psychodynamic approach, I'll help you access memories and emotions safely, which allows you to heal from your pain and live your life in freedom, joy, and peace.
As a Christian woman, it’s hard navigating your experiences of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Your pain and suffering makes you question “If God is good, then why hasn’t he healed me? Is there something wrong with me? Do I not have enough faith?” Maybe past painful experiences of abuse or neglect haunt you and you can’t seem to forgive and move on. Depression and anxiety feel out of your control leaving you scared and hopeless. You pray and pray and pray and it doesn’t stop. Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and it didn’t help as you hoped. You desire and need the peace promised in the bible but it feels so far away.

Modalities such as Brief Solution-Focused, CBT, Narrative, Feminist, First-Stage Trauma, IFS, EFT, the Gottman Method, and Psychodynamic allow me to address a wide range of issues with my clients.
You deserve to be happy...and you don't need to struggle alone. Stress, worry, sadness, restlessness, frustration, anger, loss, or loneliness can all feel overwhelming at times...but care, connection, treatment, healing, and empowerment are all within reach. Within psychotherapy... insight, understanding, self-awareness, tools for coping, better functioning, and new ways of relating or behaving are all part of the process of change that you may be hoping for. Whether it be unresolved issues from the past or present circumstances and challenges, a safe, respectful, accepting, patient, and encouraging therapeutic space can be surprisingly rewarding, and make more of a difference than expected.
