I'm a MA Candidate student working under the supervision of Dr. Krystle Martin. I have experience supporting clients navigating a wide variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, quality of life, etc. I like to use a collaborative, strength-based, trauma-informed approach in therapy wherein we establish goals you wish to work towards during our time together. I enjoy using Cognitive Behavioural, Dialectical, Acceptance and Commitment, and Cognitive Process techniques. I also think it important to have open dialogue wherein you can freely explore and be curious about your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

Intense emotions can pull you into a downward spiral of feeling overwhelmed and lost. It is difficult to face life when you are walking around with a heavy chest or feeling anxious. It is likely that you were never taught how to cope with how you feel or understand why a part of you feels empty inside. It can feel uncomfortable to turn to friends and family, fearing how they may react. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space, where you can feel heard as you work through difficult emotions. I can provide you with the insight, tools and support you need to bring about healing so that you can approach life in a new way.

I seek to help clients who suffer from anxiety, grief, depression, have lived through trauma, or struggle with self-esteem, self-forgiveness, and self-kindness. Parents and those in a perinatal period of their life will find particular expertise in my practice. Clients who are willing to actively experiment and question their own perspectives in order to improve their lives will benefit most from therapy with me. I want to help clients find who they really are, to self-actualize and be their genuine selves, leading to mental wellness so that they can thrive.

Namaste! I provide individual, relationship and marriage counselling, in a nonjudgmental, relaxed environment. Over the last 35 years I have worked with individuals and couples guiding, teaching and helping them by using an eclectic approach, and a variety of different types of modalities depending on the particular needs of my clients. I also provide family mediation and relationship counselling for couples who have split. I am a sex therapist, working with all couples and individuals. I specialize in many areas, as I believe all issues are connected, so to treat problems in isolation is unrealistic and can be short lived.

Life is full of challenges. Sometimes our past and present life circumstances make it hard to manage them. Relationships, life transitions, trauma, fears, grief and loss, parenting worries, anxiety or low self esteem can all trigger feelings of distress and rob you of joy. When it feels hard to cope, it helps to talk. You don’t have to navigate these challenges by yourself. I can support you. You are not alone.

My approach to therapy is holistic, client-centered, trauma-informed, and grounded in empathy and compassion, respect, and non-judgment. I believe everyone has a unique story to tell, and my goal is to listen, hold safe space, and validate your experiences and the worldviews that influence your identity and sense of self. I believe therapy is a collaborative journey of growth and discovery, and feel grateful to walk alongside you as you learn, heal, develop greater self-awareness, and begin to make positive changes in your life and relationships.

OPENINGS AVAILABLE Feeling alone, depressed, left out and afraid is a difficult place to be. Especially if no one understands what you are going through. You still have responsibilities (school, family, work and friends), but it's hard to get out of bed most days. If any of this sounds familiar than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) are two therapies that can be of use. CBT helps those who have symptoms that are not trauma based and CPT helps you process traumatic incidents that have left you riddled with anxiety, sadness and difficulty sleeping. Both therapies are good to suit different needs.

You have likely encountered some challenging times recently, or else you wouldn’t be here. Feeling stuck and not knowing how to move forward? You may not know where that journey will take you, but I can help be your personal guide. I believe my main role is to help observe and facilitate your personal journey. Imagine a life of clarity, love and freedom from the negative thoughts or emotions that fill your head and binds you. Imagine waking up every day feeling in control of whatever might come your way; knowing that you have the internal strength to deal with and manage it. Imagine being the best version of YOU.

My approach is grounded in the style of therapy called Motivational Interviewing, where I strive to be collaborative and empathetic in order to elicit behavioral change.

Life brings a series of changes and transitions as well as impactful moments that at times we may feel define our lives. It is within our nature for our minds and bodies to respond to a variety of life stressors and traumatic incidents. I work with children, adolescents, individuals, and families who have faced trauma, anxiety, difficulties with changes, amongst other difficulties stemming from transitions and trauma. I support my clients through embarking on a healing process where conditioned thoughts and behaviours rooted in survival and trauma are unlearned and released through an integrative approach.

Do you feel like you are wearing a mask of “everything is fine” and it feels like you're an imposter? Perhaps you are overly concerned with making sure that everyone around you is happy but your needs and wants are not fulfilled? Many women feel disconnected from their own feelings and needs and self-worth, leaving them worrying that something is wrong with them and they will never be able to live with the kind of purpose and fulfillment that they crave.
