I bring attentiveness, warmth, and empathy as a therapist and aim to create meaningful and genuine connections through the safe exploration of thoughts, emotions and behaviours as well as the exploration of larger systems that are impacting one’s life. I work with tweens, adolescents and adults. I am passionate about meeting individuals where they are.
Using an integrated approach, my practice is rooted in narrative, feminist, trauma-informed, person-centered, emotionally-focused, somatic, internal family systems therapies. I pay close attention to the mind-body connection and draw on mindfulness psycho-social practices, expressive arts, contemplative writing and embodiment/somatic practices. I am committed to creating a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space to welcome any challenges, insecurities, emotions, and / or fears you may bring forward. It would be my privilege to support you and your particular needs.
One-on-one sessions allow for the sharing of personal stories and areas of challenge, the processing of emotions and thoughts in order to create space for a fresh perspective and positive action to move forward. Together we will make sense of the existing stories that may be holding you back from living the life you truly want.
Here are the areas I generally focus on and have expertise in:
- tweens, adolescents
- learning differences / challenges / academic distress
- career challenges / conflicts / changes
- overwhelm (emotions)
- relationship issues and conflict (and couples counselling)
- family issues and conflict, repair, and mediation

- grief and loss
- coping strategies
- self-harm / injury
- disordered eating

- mood and anxiety disorders
- infertility, involuntary childlessness
- miscarriage, still birth

I also offer a complimentary 20-minute consultation on secure video conferencing if you would like to explore the possibility a little further.
