I’m an experienced counselling professional with over 15 years in the field. I’ve worked in a variety of settings: cancer care, sexual + domestic violence, mental + addictions to name a few. I have a Master's in Social Work and I'm registered in good standing with the College of Social Work.
I work with people experiencing a variety of life transitions and life struggles. My practice focuses on:
- illness in the family (including parenting through illness & children’s grief)
- life transitions
- low mood
Sometimes the problem feels less clear. Together, we can uncover what might be standing in the way of reaching a greater sense of peace.
I offer a relational, trauma-informed approach, beginning first with establishing a strong, safe alliance. From there we can identify problems, have therapeutic conversations, and uncover the resources + skills necessary to navigate through life stress/life change.
All kinds of unforeseen stressful life events can leave lasting effects on one’s nervous system and psyche, affecting day-to-day functioning. I work with people to build safety, increase self-understanding, process painful feelings, construct meaning, and facilitate adjustment /integration. I draw from a variety of evidence-based approaches including: CBT, DBT, existential therapy, meaning-centered therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness-based and somatic approaches. I adapt my approach to meet the needs and goals of the person I’m working with.
I consider it a great privilege to be led into the private (sometimes painful) parts of people's lives and I'm constantly inspired by the clever and resilient ways that people grow around life stress.
