My approach is relational, client-centered, creative, somatic and collaborative.
I am a registered psychotherapist and a certified expressive arts therapist. I have been a practicing psychotherapist for over 15 years and am interested in promoting self healing, relationships, growth and change. I have trained extensively in expressive arts, gestalt and developmental somatic psychotherapy and have pursued professional training in emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT), trauma informed therapy, narrative therapy and child and play therapy. I create a safe and interactive therapeutic atmosphere, and work from a resource oriented, somatic awareness based perspective, focussing on both short and long term needs.

I use trauma-informed practice in my work and Mindfulness-Based Somatic Therapy.
It takes courage to be vulnerable and it can be uncomfortable to discuss your difficulties with a therapist. Whether you are dealing with overwhelming emotions, a new experience, or seeking meaningful change, I would be happy to help. As a psychotherapist, my goal is to create a warm and supportive atmosphere so that we can explore new insights in an open and non-judgmental space. Regardless of your reasons for coming to therapy, it is important for me that we work together to determine your goals and priorities. I offer evidence-based therapy to adolescents, adults, couples, and families.

That’s the gift of somatic & experiential learning! This means trusting the wisdom of your body, presence, and intuition.
When we’re facing a major life crisis or wanting to unpack the trauma of our childhood, anxiety and depression often get in the way and create a form of paralysis. In such painful situations how change can occur is extremely difficult to imagine. Psychotherapy is an organic process to help us change; seek our authentic self, develop our relationships with others, and to discover how to regulate our nervous system. We can relearn how to play i.e., by uncovering our (temporarily) lost sense of joy. We can reframe and update the self so as to create tools helping us navigate life’s beauty and paradoxes!

I offer creative tools including martial arts, somatic exercises and artful efforts to recreate a new way of responding to life .
The clients who experience the most growth in their work with me are open to approaching their struggles from a new vantage point. They have realized that their usual modes of coping or attempts at resolution in conflict no longer work and are ready to know themselves and their relationships in ways they have not explored previously. The variety of techniques and relationship building methods used in treatment are designed to increase one's sense of self worth, inner peace and development of healthy boundary. Self awareness is a priority, integral to the process of mending past trauma and reclaiming a sense of wholeness, peace

Using tools from somatic and mindfulness practices we can work at making more space for you.
At times of overwhelm or crossroads, we can feel so lost or alone that any effort to reach out feels impossible. Let alone to do therapy which can take a look at things that cause pain, isolation, or despair. Yeah, sign me up for that asap.?! But instability may interfere more than is bearable and relationships, work and self-care can seem unmanageable. We all need a place for ourselves at times like this. A safe place to decompress, access our experience and voice, and sift through what we've been going through. Growth and change can arise from places we left unattended, neglected or misunderstood for a long time.

I use an integrative approach, drawing primarily from ACT, mindfulness, somatic practices, & narrative therapy.
I believe therapy is about supporting your innate strengths and wisdom. Whether you’re feeling frustrated, afraid of failing, stuck, or never feel good enough (been there); or you're done with this pandemic (me too), I will listen and support you in cultivating greater awareness and compassion. I specialize in supporting folks struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, self discovery, inner criticism, inadequacy, inattention, and difficult transitions (career, school, relationships). We'll discuss your goals, reconnect with your values, and explore ways to move through life's difficulties so you can do more of what matters to you.

I feel immensely humbled by the trust I am awarded each time a person shares their story, and so privileged to play a role in your path of self-discovery.

The focus of my work is supporting people to unearth, examine, and clear stagnate ways of being. Through exploring personal narratives, habitual responses and engaging the magic of the subconscious, we work together to create fresh space and open to new ways of being. Sessions with me include talk therapy, somatic exercises, and deep dives into the subconscious world through mindfulness based activities. I am warm and grounded, and keep the session energy flowing through active inquiry and deep listening. Working at a pace that feels safe and supportive for you is key, and so I regularly check in to ensure this is your experience.

I lean on an eclectic approach to therapy that rests on body-based strategies like somatic experiencing, and integrate it with solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, CBT, mindfulness and art based strategies.
I have always had a passion for holding space for others as they confront pain and distress. I consider it my greatest privilege to emotionally support individuals as they navigate through the challenges of their life. In fact, my aim is to support you by helping you get in touch with what is hijacking you - emotional wounds, fears, blindspots, negative beliefs and thinking patterns. I am equipped to guide you through various concerns including anxiety, emotional distress, grief, trauma and loss and have worked with countless individuals, children and parents over the years.

My work draws on the humanistic, existential and psychodynamic traditions of Western psychology, and is grounded in the wisdom of Eastern philosophies, somatic work, mindfulness and meditation.
Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. In the course of a lifetime, crises happen, unpredictable challenges arise, and in response we develop habit patterns that are often protective but also inhibit our growth and freedom. Therapy will help clear the path so that you can see a way forward. I walk that path with you and provide a container for self-exploration and inquiry. I work with mood disturbances, trauma, attachment issues, self-esteem, and spiritual emergence. Depth therapy is a journey that will take you into yourself and lead you back to yourself while being witnessed by a safe, compassionate presence.

I work in the areas of Meditation and Mindfulness, Somatic therapy, Trauma/PTSD, and Group therapy.
We live in a very fast paced world. The pressures on us are mounting. Stress is high. And in spaces where we should be more and more connected we are feeling incredibly high amounts of isolation. Whatever you are dealing with right now, you don’t need to do it alone. Reaching out for support is vital. Connecting with a therapist is a way to help alleviate some of the stress.

I also supervise a lower-cost mindfulness therapy clinic to make high quality, mindfulness-based somatic trauma therapy more accessible.
Mindfulness teaches us how to relate to ourselves with kindness. I understand how the struggle to avoid or control difficult experiences can leave you feeling like your own worst enemy. Mindfulness is a different strategy. It's about learning to feel at home in our own bodies and our minds - even in times of trouble. My work is grounded in my own personal practice: a 20 year meditator with 14 years as a mindfulness educator, I'm a graduate of a Buddhist seminary with a master's degree in Counselling psychology and specialized training in working with trauma and abuse.

Somatic Counsellors
If you're looking for Somatic therapy in Toronto or for a Toronto Somatic Counsellor these Counsellors provide Somatic counselling. Somatic psychotherapy bridges the mind-body dichotomy recognizing that emotion, behaviour, sensation, impulse originate in physical experiences. Thinking motivates, or is motivated by, physical action.

Dance therapy in Toronto reflects a somatic approach.
