Something is wrong, but we can't quite grasp what. We search for a better understanding of ourselves in order to solve our emotional and psychological discontent. We think about the events of the day, relationships, childhood and the past. Still, something doesn't seem right. We act and feel in ways that create discord. I provide psychotherapy for people who are interested in looking for the deeper meaning behind the discomfort in their lives. The goal is to be able to have more meaningful relationships, fulfilling work and societal contributions, as well as the capacity to bear the difficulties that are part of living fully.

Although no topics are off limits, many people see me for problems in relationship, grief and loss, personal growth and unresolved childhood and family issues. Often clients seek help when they are at a cross roads in their lives and need support and guidance on how to move through problems, overcome obstacles, and move in a direction that is in line with their own life compass.

"HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy: Are you feeling symptoms of anxiety, depression, lost in direction, low self-esteem, financial and relationship troubles? And are you unsure as to why you are feeling this way? Would you like to change certain behaviours but can't seem to move forward? With "HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy, we connect directly with the core source of the issue (usually stemming from childhood) that is always linked to an emotion through exploratory questioning, engaging the unconscious mind with empathy and compassion. Once we acknowledge the source, we can begin to work with creating new ways of being and integration.

Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.

I believe that we're doing the best we can with the tools available. I will support you in building on the wisdom and skills you already have and will creatively explore with you the places you feel stuck, shaky, or unmet. I believe that trauma can get locked in the body if we do not have the safety or support at the time to care for it. Through a relational and experiential process, we will bring attention and awareness to where you are holding untended needs. You can expect me to be warm, direct, steady, and responsive. Additionally, I am 2SLGBTQ-affirming, sex-positive, kink-aware and knowledgeable around polyamory/non monogamy.

Our experiences shape us. The residue of the past can stick to us in different ways: feeling numb or feeling so much intense emotion that it's hard to cope; difficulty setting boundaries or struggling to bring people close; feeling unsafe, fearful, and distrusting; self-doubt and shame; having a hard time allowing creativity, calm, and joy. It's so easy to forget that even in the most painful, lonely, and violent moments of our lives, we were growing. I fundamentally believe that we are resilient as hell. We learned to survive! And perhaps survival mode is now getting in the way of feeling truly alive, present, and connected.

I specialize in working with adults in areas regarding sex, sexual identity, sexual education, and general sexual therapy. My Bachelor’s degree in Child and Youth Care has also provided me with the tools to specialize in working with children, ages five to fifteen.

We all have times in our lives when we know something is wrong, even if we don’t know what it is. You might feel off-balance, low energy, not yourself. Often you feel like you want to talk about what’s happening with someone, even if you aren't yet clear about it. You want to be able to talk with someone who won’t judge you, who won’t second guess your experiences, or try to explain them away, or try to rewrite your story for you.

(WAITLIST CLOSED) Sometimes it's difficult to get unstuck from our emotions, but try to think of them as waves of an ocean—coming and going, rising and falling... Never permanent and always moving. Experiencing your emotions and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a true strength, not a weakness. Together, we can address personal difficulties, explore options, develop coping strategies, and identify strengths. Counselling and psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency, and self-empowerment, and it is tailored to each client's individual and unique needs. What works for one client may not work for another.
