While I help clients connect with their experience in the present moment, my approach is very much trauma -informed and psychodynamic.
My goal is to foster a safe therapeutic environment for clients struggling with mood, relationships, addictions, and school/work-related stress. Setting an empathic, yet structured tone to each session, I am able to guide those seeking resolution toward discovering their own solutions. I have found that by helping clients build a deeper awareness of their mind-body connection, they develop greater self-regulation, a healthier sense of self and more satisfying interpersonal relationships.

I have experience working with trauma , anxiety, depression, OCD, life transitions, and more.
Life comes with its ups and downs, and at times it can be difficult to process and cope with our thoughts and emotions during these hardships. Together, we can work through these challenges and find strategies to help you address the root causes of these difficulties while finding ways to cope and move forward. I feel that while embarking on this journey it is important to build a positive and healthy relationship with oneself. Through increasing self-awareness and self-compassion, you can truly love yourself fully and improve your mood and mindset. "When things change inside you, things change around you."

Therapy can help in many ways – providing emotional support, understanding in new ways and changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. I work to transform difficult emotions and help clients to feel relieved, hopeful, and clearer about the way forward. I draw from a number of therapeutic approaches including the person-centered humanistic approach, family systems, anti-oppressive and trauma -informed practices, narrative and solution-focused therapies, CBT, the Gottman method, and mindfulness and compassion-centered approaches.

I work with children and adults who are experiencing conflict or distress associated with loss, transition or change; who may find some feelings or experiences too overwhelming or difficult to communicate using words alone, or for those who may avoid feelings or confuse issues in their use of words. The therapy I provide may suit for those who suffer from problems that stem from body related issues, concern about body image, or issues with trust. Some of my clients have impairment or trauma that may hinder the capacity for them or others to acknowledge and understand personal areas of strength and weakness.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
