We all need to be noticed and accepted for who we are as individuals, and for how we are wrestling with the concerns of our hearts and minds. We all need to be understood and validated within the circle of our relationships with both ourselves and with others. These two realities have a wealth of current research behind them, and make flexibility, empathy and empowerment so important in the role of helping each individual person. I offer a warm, friendly atmosphere for relationship trust to grow, and I seek to understand people as whole-persons, including mind, body, spirit and relationships. This understanding can be explored and expressed in a variety of ways that fit for each individual. I then work respectfully together with people in choosing how to approach concerns, and I tend to be very flexible and open to evaluate and adapt our plan as needed. I often do short term therapy and teach people self-healing practices throughout our time together in order to promote a greater sense of self-acceptance and self-empowerment.

More Info About My Practice

I am very familiar, trained, and certified in interpersonal neurobiology, developed and promoted by Dr. Daniel Seigel. This is a current, research-based approach to understanding individuals and relationships. I combine this training with my understanding of each person in an intuitive way. This can help people understand themselves in relation to their life journey. Specifically, how their significant past experiences, present realities, and future goals, hopes and dreams might be interconnected in beneficial and detrimental ways.

I offer sliding scale depending on income. I am registered with the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association, and need to clarify each case with them as it relates to extended health insurance policies and coverage.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have experience in helping with many common issues. Some of these include:

-Anxiety
-Depression
-Trauma
-Grief and loss
-Overcoming severe childhood abuse
-Abandonment and neglect
-Struggling as a parent or partner in a relationship
-and many other mental health issues

How Psychotherapy Can Help

People have a deep need to find support in a relaxed, trustful, and accepting relationship. My approach to supporting people offers this atmosphere and enables people to become more aware, accepting, understanding, and compassionate with themselves. This healthier relationship with themselves leads to a greater sense of empowerment and problem-solving in their current circumstances and in their relationships.
