I offer individual counselling for adults. I work via a trauma-informed perspective, and seek to accompany my clients on their paths to healing, discovery, and personal growth. I am LGBTQ2S+-friendly and strive to provide safe, nurturing, non-judgmental care for individuals from all backgrounds and identities.
My primary clientele are women in the perinatal period. The time period between planning to conceive a child and the first few years of parenting is filled with physiological changes, hormonal fluctuations, relationship adjustments, communication challenges, and ever-growing responsibilities. It is no wonder that new parents report feeling a tremendous sense of overwhelm. Postpartum Depression and Anxiety affect almost 1/4 of women who give birth in Canada, and yet maternal mental health is still a "taboo" topic. It is my honour to support women as they navigate this time of tremendous identity shift, and to advocate for more transparency, more community feeling, more services, and more support for this incredibly important time.
My practice is shaped by the deep belief that my clients are the experts of their own lives, and I strive to meet them where they are at, to provide a supportive ear, and to work with my clients using a variety of evidence-based therapy interventions. I work via a trauma-informed lens, and use an approach highlighting the mind-body connection. I frequently use EMDR and Clinical Hypnosis with clients. I am well-versed in CBT, Adlerian Therapy, Rogerian Therapy, and Mindfulness.
Looking back, I can see now that Counselling has always been my calling. The moments in my life where I felt the most alive, whole, and present are the times when I was attuned to the powerful connection between my mind and my body. It was not necessarily a short path that I took to becoming a counsellor; there were a few career stops along the way! However, once I got here, I never looked back. It is my absolute honour and privilege to bear witness to my clients' experiences, and to help them as they choose their paths towards the wellness they seek.
