I also supervise a lower-cost mindfulness therapy clinic to make high quality, mindfulness-based somatic trauma therapy more accessible.
Mindfulness teaches us how to relate to ourselves with kindness. I understand how the struggle to avoid or control difficult experiences can leave you feeling like your own worst enemy. Mindfulness is a different strategy. It's about learning to feel at home in our own bodies and our minds - even in times of trouble. My work is grounded in my own personal practice: a 20 year meditator with 14 years as a mindfulness educator, I'm a graduate of a Buddhist seminary with a master's degree in Counselling psychology and specialized training in working with trauma and abuse.

Therapeutic approaches like EMDR and Somatic therapy are used to help safely address the traumas that persistently affect and dysregulate the nervous system and to support in re-training the brain and body to function more adaptively and with more ease.
Life is beautiful but it is also hard, exhausting, sad, messy and temperamental. Coping with the intense pressures and stress we face can be very challenging and isolating. I believe therapy is about having a relationship where we can safely and authentically explore and discover where we tend to hide parts of ourselves, run away, and hold back our truth from the world. Together we will explore this in a manner that welcomes and supports your whole being to foster an ongoing process of self-awareness, healing and self development - and towards you moving in the world with greater resiliency, authenticity and a deeper sense of self.

My technique is grounded in traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; which is a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma.
Often we seek therapy because something in our life is not working for us. We are tired of feeling chronically overwhelmed, we may be unsure of how to manage our relationships, or want to stop negative patterns that no longer serve us. I appreciate that it takes courage to explore our inner world of thoughts and feelings. I am a skilled and compassionate therapist who has supported hundreds of clients on their healing journey as they learn new ways to cope with stress and better navigate their emotional reactions and relationships. Extra support is often the ingredient clients need to overcome significant hurdles in life.

Having worked and trained at The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) since 2008, I have provided psychotherapy for many years, drawing on Internal Family Systems (IFS); Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT); Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT); mindfulness, as well as somatic (body based), psychodynamic (exploratory) and attachment based therapies.
Many of us feel stuck in familiar patterns that no longer serve us. Patterns that are barriers to healthy relationships, meaningful work and good feelings about ourselves. I will work alongside you to help make sense of how past experiences may influence these present day struggles. Together we can work to heal self-criticism; "over-reaction" or "overthinking" type responses; feeling "too much" or feeling numb; repeated tendencies that feel like self-sabotage; hard emotions linked to life transitions; and painful memories from past experience.

Using tools from somatic and mindfulness practices we can work at making more space for you.
At times of overwhelm or crossroads, we can feel so lost or alone that any effort to reach out feels impossible. Let alone to do therapy which can take a look at things that cause pain, isolation, or despair. Yeah, sign me up for that asap.?! But instability may interfere more than is bearable and relationships, work and self-care can seem unmanageable. We all need a place for ourselves at times like this. A safe place to decompress, access our experience and voice, and sift through what we've been going through. Growth and change can arise from places we left unattended, neglected or misunderstood for a long time.

I am trained in EMDR, somatic, psychodynamic and relational modalities.
Feeling stuck or held back in your life? Feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, numbness, trouble communicating or social-anxiety? So often these experiences affect our relationship to ourselves, our work and others. I specialize in working with self-esteem, PTSD, anxiety, relationship issues and dissociation. I believe that therapy is about creating a safe and open relationship, where together we can work to explore life's challenges and the ways we seek to change our own internal narratives. In this ongoing process of acceptance an awareness, we can find our resilience, authenticity, confidence and a deepening sense of self in the world.

Bringing 20 years of somatic expertise, I trust in the power of bringing the body and psyche together to recover who we were truly meant to be in our lives and to move beyond the prolific impact that trauma has on our entire being.

I use an integrative approach with clients, with a basis in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy or 'parts work', a trauma-informed, mindfulness based modality, and I draw from somatic and behavioural interventions to invite change and acceptance in your life.
There are times in our lives that we cannot get a handle on the challenges in our life. Sometimes our genetics play a role, i.e. intergenerational traumas, and other times, life, and all its stressors gets overwhelming. For some, systemic barriers exist that impede a capacity for wellness. During these times, it is helpful to work with a trained therapist to support you as you find your way back to your healing, happiness and inner peace. Therapy is a process of growth, unlearning, and self-discovery. In my therapy sessions, I promote behavioral transformation and inner peace by encouraging curiosity, compassion and acceptance.

Sometimes people are not quite certain what is getting in the way of having those better relationships and sometimes people know. Often there is some emotional issue, either from the past or one arising in the present that is getting in the way. Many people want to feel more connected, have fewer conflicts in their relationships. In families, sometimes there are emotional patterns or behavioural patterns that are getting in the way of being more connected with each other.

Expressive arts therapy is grounded in the arts but I also draw on psychology-based therapies to support and inform a safe and effective healing environment.

I work from a foundation of somatic exploration, depth psychology, and a feminist approach that understands the social and political contexts in which our lives exist.
While the specific reasons people seek therapy vary, we come to the work because we recognize that some psychic and emotional pain is preventing us from living our most dynamic and meaningful lives. Therapy is a process of inner work that allows us to work through those barriers. In a supportive, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship we can begin to encounter the unknown and disavowed aspects of ourselves and in doing so learn from these parts of ourselves, heal and integrate, and transform our relationship to ourselves and others.
