As a Registered Psychotherapist working with adults of all ages, I specialize in the treatment of trauma. Therapy provides an opportunity to discuss how symptoms such as: depression, anxiety, anger, relationship difficulties, addictions, and emotional volatility, can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. Over and over I've witnessed people using therapy to feel safer in the world, more hopeful, and better able to reach their full potential in life, work, and in relationship with themselves and others. I am an experienced, empathic therapist and I collaborate to tailor therapy to meet each client's individual needs.

When faced with a challenge or uncertainty, it can take a toll on your well-being, productivity, and self-worth. It can be difficult to talk to your friends, family, or romantic partner about how you are feeling, and finding a safe space can be the first step to feeling like yourself again. I am a registered social worker with over 9 years of experience working in mental health. I am a non-judgmental empath who strives to support and always meet my clients where they are at. I take a client-centered, trauma-focused, anti-oppressive approach, and work to collaboratively create a plan with my clients to help them achieve their goals.

For June/JulyI have paused taking new clients. Feel free to check back in August 2022 re daytime sessions. I offer a comfortable, supportive, and non-judgmental space to talk things through, make sense of your feelings, and build on your coping strategies. I support people with understanding their wants/needs, setting boundaries, and recognizing and working through the impacts of childhood experiences. As people understand themselves better, they can make changes in their lives to feel more confident, grounded, and in control. If you're wondering if I might be the right therapist for you, reach out to book a free mini phone session

Registered Psychotherapist, MDiv, RP

With gentleness, curiosity and humour, I've walked with people at all ages and stages: facing mental illness or trauma, dealing with end of life or baby loss, embracing queer identity, living with disability. Your story is central, but talking isn't everything: some of our deepest wounds are held in realms beyond words. Because I work a lot with trauma and embodied pain, I draw on neurobiology-based somatic approaches like Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Brainspotting. I often use Internal Family Systems (inner parts work) and other approaches that engage clients’ creative, imaginative, and meditative sides in the service of healing.

Therapy is a non-judgmental and safe space where you will learn to unlock your inner strength and develop healthy mechanisms to navigate life. Doing it alone can be isolating and anxiety producing, but the good news is that you do not have to do it all by yourself. As your therapist I recognize that you are the expert of your experiences, and I will actively participate in your process of change. I draw on strength-based, trauma-focused, and narrative therapy in my work with individuals.

My approach to the work is trauma focused , meaning that I acknowledge and honour all the ways that trauma can impact a person and that the ways that people cope and feel are understandable reactions to events that have happened to them.
How many of us focus solely on the problems we experience in our lives, while leaving out so much of our narrative, such as our hopes for ourselves, the ways that we survive life's challenges and our commitment to doing the work of healing even when it feels hard? Rather than focusing on “problems/behaviours”, I will explore with you the needs that your coping skills meet, and work on developing more adaptive ways of meeting those same needs. I will work collaboratively with you to explore stuck points, and look at the many different social factors that precipitate and maintain your sense of "stuckness"
