My Approach to Helping

Life on this planet can be hard. There are ups and downs; pluses and minuses; stops and starts; joys and sorrows. Flux and flow. We all live within that and, sometimes, we need help managing.
The right therapy can help rebuild a foundation solid enough to begin creating a life that feels right, for you, according to your values. A place to safely process, redefine and reframe. A place to learn the tools to rebuild, manage and accept everything that comes your way.

Using the theories, practices and protocols of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal and Emotion-Focussed models, as well as, and if wanted, psycho-education and Restorative Yoga (completely optional), I can help you create a new normal.

An important piece of this is to be clear that therapy is always about you: your life; your values and beliefs; your experiences. I always want to know about these things. It’s foundational to a great therapeutic alliance.

More Info About My Practice

The combination of talk therapy and restorative yoga is a brilliant way to process and accept what life hands us. No matter what makes us sad andor anxious; no matter what we have experienced; no matter where we find ourselves, embodied work can create relief. Mindfulness meditation; thoughtful, validating and therapeutic conversation; and restorative yoga poses help rebuild a safe foundation from which to live.
