My Approach to Helping

I am a Registered Psychotherapist. I offer individual, couple and family counselling. I use emotion and solution-focused techniques in session. We will talk about and explore feelings, helping you completely process emotions, to better guide you in relationships and decision-making. I will also help you learn healthy relationship skills and other issues you may be struggling with ex: boundaries, assertiveness. We will explore what your personal triggers are and how they impact your life, enabling you to move forward. These concerns will be explored together in a safe, open dialogue in which you feel cared for.

I work with people who have experienced trauma and related PTSD symptoms. Some have been diagnosed with personality disorders and other mental health issues such AnxietyDepression. I work within the LGBTQ community supporting gay, lesbian and transgender people.

I can incorporate spirituality into your healing journey. I have worked with Aboriginal people and offer culturally awareappropriate care. I use Sandtray, a gentle technique to process deep feelingsexperiences. I am a caring and honest person that loves my job, and feel honoured to hold and create space for you.

Get Inspired to Change Your Life.

My Therapy Focus

I trained with Lalita Salins MA, LMFT to use SandtrayWorld Play in my work. It is a wonderful technique that taps into your unconscious to access deep emotions and experiences that can then be healed in a gentle way. It can be used in a single session or every session until you have reached your goals. It is great if the past has stayed with you or if you feel 'stuck.' It is also a way to connect with the elements and heal without talk as the central modality. I also use art activities to access feelings for further processing. Ask me about this when you make an appointment.
