I work with individuals who are seeking long-term depth psychotherapy. I support deep inquiry and on-going discovery of who you are, whether the draw is to access more of your creative potential, or to shift long-standing patterns that no longer serve you. It is not about perfection, but rather wholeness, which includes all parts of the Self; it is about living a full life, not a perfect life. I work with severe childhood trauma, personality disorders, dissociation, self-harm, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and spiritual awakening. I also work with clients who are on a dedicated spiritual path.

I focus on recognizing and managing changes in stress or mood such as anxiety, depression or suicide thoughts.
Overwhelm, stress, loss and change in our personal and professional lives; at work, at home, at play and in our relationships, is both common and very difficult to manage alone. As a registered counsellor, I meet with individuals and couples experiencing difficulties and needing assistance to understand and make meaning out of these new or continued important changes in life.

I am experienced working with people who may be suicidal, and/or self-injurying.
In my varied practice, I see youth and adults, addressing issues ranging from mental health concerns to life transitions. I use a client-centred approach, respecting that you are the expert in your own life. The therapeutic relationship we create allows you to explore your reality to the extent that you want to, in a trusting, calm and gentle environment. I draw from a number of different therapeutic styles, suited to you as a person, your worldview and your interests (talk, art, sandtray, play). I practice from an anti-oppressive, inclusive perspective, and also provide clinical supervision for counsellors.

Children and Teens present more with anxiety, depression, cutting or anger outbursts, which needs to be addressed before they slip into a self-destructive suicidal spiral.
Psychotherapy is the confidential process where you can get insight from an experienced registered Psychologist in understanding how life-stressors can interfere with your thinking patterns, feelings, beliefs, needs, behaviour and relationships. Prolonged exposure to stress, unhappiness, conflict, trauma, abuse or problematic relationships can lead to anxiety, depression, grief, anger or other behavioural problems. Brain research clearly indicated that early psychological intervention can prevent mental and physical illnesses. Clients now have the opportunity to be proactive and learn the skills on how to protect their mental health, restore their competence and happiness and develop a strong sense of well-being and resiliency.

The effects of trauma are many, and can feel overwhelming and unbearable. If you are experiencing post-traumatic stress responses such as, anxiety, depression, unhealthy or abusive relationships, substance misuse, self-harm or suicidal ideation, you are not alone. Many mental health symptoms are automatic responses and attempts to cope with trauma. These adaptations don't always serve us in the best way. When trauma can't be processed in the moment, it is often held in the body and we can become "stuck". A Somatic approach to counselling may help you move forward and heal from the effects of trauma in an embodied way.

I work with what arises most naturally, with a keen eye and ear for what is possible, most needed, and ultimately empowering from that place. As we discover + embrace our own inner 'coding' of language, symbols, meaning and emotion, we find a new engagement with life, become more aware, responsive, and connected, from within.
