Trauma is concretely defined as an emotional response to a terrible event, however this definition does not encompass all of the undertakings you may be experiencing. Trauma can occur from family generations, a close friend’s experience, or seeing something on the media that affects us deeply. Your trauma will not look the same as another person’s and that’s okay. If you are looking to process and heal from the heavy weight of trauma, through a collaborative effort, I can help you unpack your story to be able to move forward.

I am a therapist and yoga instructor who helps individuals from a holistic perspective with a combined experience of 8 years using various intervention models that best suit the individual I am working with. My current focus incorporates an emphasis on mindfulness and being gentle with ourselves to promote healing. I use an integrative approach that combines a variety of approaches such as Existentialism, Person Centered, Mindfulness, and Emotion-Focused therapy to understand who you are and the best process to help you heal on your journey. The two tenets that guide my work are the ideas that everyone deserves care and respect and that my role is to help you, the expert on your own life, solve the problems and overcome the obstacles that are holding you back from achieving the best version of yourself.

I am a practicum student therapist in the final stages of my Masters of Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. I am available for online and phone sessions. Email me today to receive your free consultation where we can determine if I am the best fit for you and what you need to connect to your best self.
