    Do you feel that time is moving too fast and you aren’t happy with where you are? When current stressors happen do they feel excessive? Do you find yourself feeling stuck or reacting in ways that aren’t your typical self?

    Experiencing loss, life changes, adversities or traumas can impact us in a number of ways. Throw in our past experiences and we can often feel overwhelmed or alone. If any of those concerns are relatable know it is possible to move forward, thrive and feel supported in the process.

    I am a Registered Psychologist and a Canadian Certified Counsellor and I’ve been supporting adult individuals achieve that growth. I work through an attachment lens and believe we are relational being that desire to be seen and understood and are impacted (positively or negatively) by our first relationships. For that reason, I believe a strong therapeutic alliance between myself and the clients I work with is important for change. I work with adult clients around a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss, relational concerns, occupational stress injuries, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and early childhood trauma.

    I work together with clients building new coping tools and resources but also discovering and revisiting their existing strengths. Treatment can include Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Brainspotting and Lifespan Integration Therapy.

    I welcome you to contact me via email, the main line or through the form below for a free 15-minute consultation to answer any questions and see if we might be a good fit.
