Do you feel hopeless, overwhelmed, or just plain stuck? Maybe you feel like you’re on autopilot, doing your best just to get through the day. Or maybe you don’t know what exactly is wrong, but you know that you want to feel differently. That is why you are here. You want to feel better, but you don’t know how.
That is where I come in. I cannot change your circumstance but I can help you make sense of what is happening and how you feel about it. Awareness is the first step towards change, and the more you practice it, the sooner it will become your superpower.
When we feel stuck we are often ‘living in our heads’ – lost in an internal dialogue, replaying the past or rehearsing for the future. It can be difficult to break that cycle alone, because feelings of stuck-ness don’t originate in our heads. They live in our bodies – in our feelings and our emotions. Our thoughts are a reflection of how we feel, so it’s important to gain an awareness of our feelings, when working towards change.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Licensed Counselling Therapist. I completed my training at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy. Some of the common issues I work with include depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, and the impact of stress on the body. I practice from a trauma-informed lens, drawing on attachment theory, polyvagal theory and somatic based approaches such as parts work, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and mindfulness based practices.
When choosing a therapist it is so important for you to feel comfortable and to have agency over that choice. That is why I offer a free 30 minute session, to see if we are the right fit.
