(She/her) Do you feel stuck, disempowered, exhausted, or overwhelmed? Do you have a feeling that life could be so much better but you’re not sure how to get there? I’d love to be a part of the journey you are about to set out on. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and healing from trauma. I also take a special interest in working with body acceptance and exploration of body image issues. My main modalities are based in mindfulness and art therapy. Art making is optional, but highly recommended, and no prior experience is needed. I also draw on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In addition, I recognize how systems of oppression impact individuals and communities as part of my work. However, ultimately, I take an integrative, client-centred approach tailored to your unique personality and life circumstances. Together we can collaborate on an approach that works for you. I believe all people contain innate inner wisdom, and I am simply a guide to help you access this wisdom. I work with teenagers, adults, seniors, and couples. Therapy can be a very vulnerable experience, and I endeavour to provide a warm, mindful, compassionate presence in order to assure the therapeutic space is a safe container for processing feelings and emotions.
I also work with couples, drawing on the Gottman method as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy and mindfulness strategies. I see each person individually before we set out on our couples therapy journey together. I believe that with the right amount of intention and work in and out of session, most couples can return to a place of support, love, and joy.
I offer an initial 15-minute complimentary online consultation to assess your needs.
