About

The right fit of counsellor can be one of the most important factors in a therapeutic relationship. I am dedicated and passionate about helping people find ways of being in the world that feel most authentic to them. I have special interest in working with youth and families, challenges with mental health, life transitions, relationship struggles, as well stress related responses to traumatic events such as childhood abuse or car accidents. I love working with people exploring different paths and looking to challenge the status quos in their lives, including those walking non-conforming paths.
I draw from narrative and solution-focused therapies. Working from a strength-based perspective I help people build from what works instead of focusing on what doesn't. I am also trained in EMDR and work with people of all ages from this approach for trauma related concerns as well as other evidence based applications like phobias, chronic pain, and anxiety.
For more information have a look at my site (https://www.pivotcounselling.org/). I would love to hear from you to talk more about how I could be of support.
