Research towards my book "Multidimensional Healing" soon to be published by Austin Macauley revealed that unresolved childhood trauma underlies many common mental, emotional & physical health issues such as PTSD, HDD, anxiety, depression, chronic hypertension & auto-immune diseases. Therefore, I have trained in the trauma resolution methods EMDR, Internal Family Systems & Somatic Experiencing designed to reactivate embodied psychic trauma & facilitate its release. These methods are life-changing when they release the trauma blocking the flow of vitality, love and well-being.

If you are searching for a therapist who offers a non conventional, creative approach- that is me! My style involves talking through what's challenging for you, and focuses deeply on somatic; mind-body connection.
Are you finding it challenging to tolerate and cope with stress? Do you feel easily pushed towards feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, frustration, sadness and grief? You are not alone! This is happening to many folks, on a global level. Over time, our bodies begin to wear down when experiencing chronic stress- so you may be noticing some physical symptoms like: loss of sleep, difficulty concentrating, digestion issues and low energy levels too. This is because our mind-body system naturally responds to stress in survival mode- fight, flight and freeze. Our bodies are craving time to rest and recover but this can be a challenge.

I incorporate different approaches to psychotherapy, including psychodynamic and relational, emotion-focused, and somatic and psycho-neurobiological modalities.
I believe that every client holds an innate understanding of what they need to heal and grow. I offer a time and place where clients can slow down and connect with this innate knowledge as they explore how past patterns are affecting their current life, and move beyond the impact of unsatisfying and painful experiences. The results can be increased self-understanding, improved relationships, coping with loss, trauma, and life transitions with resiliency, and feeling empowered to make changes in one's life.

Whether you are looking for or considering counselling for yourself or someone else, an important step toward healing was taken if you are here. Experiences brought on by difficult circumstances that life throws us are never the clearest to understand or the easiest to tackle. These experiences appear in life as addictions, flashbacks, dissociation, anxiety, unhealthy relationships, depression, or bodily aches and pains with no medical explanations.

Our work together involves deepening the connection with yourself, so you become aware of what you need, and how to give it to yourself. Through being present and mindful to our current experiences, we can start to become more sensitive and aware of our psychological, emotional, and bodily experiences. To engage with compassion, curiosity, and without judgement can bring greater clarity into what is troubling us, and bring us closer to living in greater alignment with our most authentic self.

If you're looking for Somatic therapy in Ottawa or for an Ottawa Somatic Counsellor these Counsellors provide Somatic counselling.
