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.

"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.

I specialize in the treatment of trauma-related issues such as PTSD, complex PTSD (childhood or ongoing abuse or neglect), Addictions, Anxiety and Depression. I use evidence-based therapeutic approaches of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS), along with a range of other therapeutic components that are research informed. My philosophy is that the psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of a person all work together as an integrative whole and are ideally treated from this perspective in order to restore balanced living.

Life can seem truly overwhelming at times, especially in our day and age when global concerns may compound our more personal stressors. Many people have carried the weight of distressing, sometimes traumatic, events with them throughout life, only to find one day that this weight has become crushing. Even those who have gone through life with relative ease may suddenly feel overwhelmed by difficult situations, such as physical or mental illness, the death of a loved one, relationship or parenting problems, divorce or other life transitions.

It takes self-awareness and courage to interrupt this cycle, and I commend you for taking the initial step toward meaningful change.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be very challenging. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to discuss/explore the issues and circumstances you are experiencing. By deepening your ability to be introspective and self-compassionate, we can explore the negative thinking patterns/habits that may be interfering with you making changes in your life. My style is warm, compassionate, empathetic, and collaborative, but also direct and solution-focused. I specialize in working with children/teens/young adults, and have experience engaging even the most reluctant young people to promote positive change.

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.

(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.
