A large part of the change that takes place due to therapeutic work is the relationship between client and counsellor. I strive to make that relationship a meaningful one based on respect and compassion. I bring with me a wide range of knowledge, skills and education and am happy to continue learning both from and for my clients. I consider my role in the lives of my clients to be a great privilege and I sincerely look forward to working with each of my clients both in short term and long term work.

I draw on the commonalities that exist between therapeutic approaches, and am aligned with anti-oppression perspectives. I utilize deep, introspective practices and pragmatic, solution-oriented practices to help clients cultivate greater self-compassion; achieve greater effectiveness in their relationships and communities; and grow towards deeper fulfillment in their lives. I am also able to offer a truly holistic therapy, combining talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement. I am a good fit for those impacted by marginalization, those with shame and self-esteem challenges, those impacted by trauma and addiction, and for couples.

You’re tired of walking on eggshells with your partner. You keep getting stuck in the same fights. You don’t feel heard or understood. Some days it seems you can’t communicate at all. You long for the days when it was easy and fun to be together. Now every little thing turns into an argument and it seems they’d rather be on their phone or in the garage than connect with you. Maybe you’re even worried about cheating. As for a sex life – well, what sex life?

One of the most rewarding feelings in life is to feel a sense of ease and acceptance with who you are, despite your vulnerabilities. Like many others, it might be difficult for you to lean on others, yet you face challenges in managing your own emotions. Some days leave you feeling empty, and at times worry or anger may consume you. You may feel disconnected from others or who you once were. I have been in the education system for 15 years and have extensive experience working with a variety of people struggling with difficult family dynamics, anxiety, depression, separation, divorce, trauma, major life transitions, and abuse.

I work from the deep belief that you have everything you need to heal and thrive. My role is to create a context in which you can connect with all that you are. This may involve figuring out the deeper structure of symptoms including "internal" conflict, finding a way to develop trust and skills in yourself and others, and/or turning trauma into wisdom. Please check out my website for more.

Feeling generally stuck and overwhelmed? I can help. I support people struggling with stress and anxiety, depression, grief, interpersonal issues, and other personal issues. I work with people dealing with trauma both big and small, helping them get unstuck. I specialize in helping adults in life transitions, relationship struggles, career changes, midlife and empty nest syndrome and offer parenting support. My many years of experience in a long term relationship, parenting 3 children and many years of teaching experience all strengthen my evidence based practice. I offer both talk therapy and EMDR virtually on line at this time.

Being a kid these days is tough. They are pulled into many directions between family, friends, school, social media, world events, and other stressors. Carrying all this weight can feel overwhelming and lonely. Stress can show up in different ways: difficulties in relationships, avoidance or over-involvement in school and activities, extreme emotions or feeling numb, negative overthinking, unhealthy habits, etc. Young people are doing their best to manage, but sometimes they feel stuck and misunderstood. Watching your child struggle so much can be heartbreaking, especially when you know how much potential your child has.

"Problems" in our lives often try to lead us to focus solely on resolving or avoiding them at all cost. In both cases, we are forced to sacrifice other parts of ourselves as a result. However, the more we sacrifice, the more "problems" take up of our space and time, leading us to feel overwhelmed and trapped. Despite the pressure to immediately "fix" things, reconnecting instead with our values, core beliefs, needs and aspirations can help create alternatives to problem-saturated narratives and, ultimately, can lead us towards solutions.

I have a doctoral degree in psychology (PsyD), am a psychoanalyst, a psychotherapist, and a musician. Psychoanalytic therapy is a journey we undertake together! It is different from many other approaches because we look at the immediate issues, but the focus is on the deeper issues and on making the deeper change! As you share your life story and struggles, we will look at the unconscious and conscious patterns that emerge in your life in a non-judgmental way. The aim is for you to find yourself!

Life can be extremely painful and difficult, especially when you don't have healthy relationships with people that you trust, or that understand you. Authentic connection to self and others is a fundamental need for humans, and without it we can feel even more alone, empty, depressed, anxious, or we can feel that life is meaningless. Not everyone we know is able to handle the weight of our struggles, and this can make it harder to reach out when support is needed. We also may be afraid to burden others with our problems, or we may feel that something is "wrong" with us if we seek help, causing us to suffer in silence.

Perhaps you’re here because you’ve reached your tipping point in life, or find yourself reacting in big ways to seemingly small things and feeling out of control with what life has thrown your way.

Change is possible when you feel seen, heard, and cared for. Together we can uncover unhelpful patterns, process difficult emotions, and become more deeply connected to ourselves and others.

I strongly believe that we all have the capacity to heal and to move towards our preferred future. We often can't do this alone. Collaborating with you and attuning my practice to ways that work best for you, I offer a safe space for reflection and insight building. I have worked with a broad range of people over the years and bring with me a commitment to anti-oppressive practice and attention to the contexts that contribute to suffering and to healing. We are living in a time of immense stress and increased isolation and this takes a toll. Reaching out for support is an important act of wellness and I welcome your enquiry.

I support those who are seeking not only to better understand their underlying patterns but also to actively improve their quality of life with a safe, supportive and collaborative counselling relationship. Issues that I help with include healing from traumatic loss, recovering from the effects of childhood trauma, relationship abuse, and other difficult life events. I also work extensively with issues around emotional regulation, boundary setting, anxiety, depression and substance misuse. Even when your struggles originate from severe adversity and trauma, you can grow, not only despite adversity, but because of it.

My experience both personally and professionally has been working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, suicidality, spiritual crises, and psychedelic integration. My focus in therapy is our relationship and your relationship with yourself and your life. I value radical acceptance and empathy, helping you to adopt these attitudes toward yourself. I believe that our whole self (e.g., thoughts, behaviours, feelings, somatic sensations) makes sense and is working adaptively to help us. Our system is wise, not broken. I am currently training in Internal Family Systems, which focuses on compassionate relation with our parts.

Do you feel like you're stuck in old patterns? Are you always zoning out or in crisis mode? Do you struggle to connect with your body and aren't quite sure what it means to feel your feelings? Would you prefer to work with a queer therapist with experience supporting 2SLGBTQ+ folks and who is committed to integrating social justice into therapeutic work?
