It’s ok not to feel ok. If you grew up in a damaging environment, you had to develop ingenious ways of surviving. Enduring your childhood is proof of your strength and ability to cope. However, you’re no longer that child and feel just surviving isn’t enough. The problem is that the past won’t let you move on—you’re suffering is not your fault. What helped you survive may now be preventing progress. It is time to rewrite your narrative. Join me, and together we will give voice to the parts of you that have been shamed, hidden and denied. I work primarily with survivors of childhood trauma suffering from complex-PTSD symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression, perfectionism, and self-identity issues, to name just a few). We can’t undo the grave injustices you had to endure, but we can take away their power.

Clients appreciate my kind, calm and authentic demeanour. I have a nonjudgemental, trauma-focused approach uniquely tailored to each client. Built on psychodynamic principles and integrating EFT, DBT, CBT, and mindfulness elements, my approach offers practical solutions while at the same time encouraging profound and lasting change.

I commend you for taking the first steps on your journey. Reaching out for help shows great strength, especially in times of distress.
