I approach counselling from a relational, person-centered, trauma-informed lens. I most often engage in long-term therapeutic relationships with my clients or support folks looking for short-term help in processing difficult experiences and trauma. I tailor sessions and my approach based on client's needs and prioritize their sense of safety at all times. My approach utilizes techniques and theory from Trauma Focused and Attachment-based Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR, Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Positive Psychology.
I have a special interest in the physiological experience of emotions, trauma and anxiety. I am passionate about supporting individuals to nurture resiliency through re-conditioning the nervous system and building the capacity to safely engage in deeper connection.
Commonly treated areas include anxiety, PTSD, trauma, childhood experiences including abuse and misattunement, attachment wounds, relationships, divorce and separation, co-parenting, prenatal and postpartum issues, boundaries, well-being, resiliency, mindset and mindfulness.
