About

Reaching out for the support of counsellor or therapist is a courageous step towards identifying and exploring new ways of engaging with life. I offer an integrative approach that provides a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space for you to embark on this journey. My primary method is expressive arts therapy which utilizes the imagination and creative expression to increase self awareness, promote growth and facilitate healing. I also draw on other theories, including: Somatic Experiencing, internal family systems, and mindfulness based practices
Benefits from this approach may include: calming of the nervous system, emotional regulation, integration of past traumas, developing a deeper connection to and understanding of oneself, discovering new perspectives and solutions to issues, and an increased capacity to adapt to new challenges.
I strive to create an inclusive, warm and welcoming environment for you to explore the challenges and issues at hand. I am committed to an ongoing deepening and expansion of my training and education in order to provide the best possible quality of service to my clients. Discover your innate capacity to heal through compassionate and creative counselling.
