Are you having trouble coping with depression, anxiety or worried about your drug and alcohol use, is life overwhelming you? Do you have concerns about your relationships with your partner or family. I create a safe space where we can explore issues at your own pace.
I believe my greatest asset is my ability is to empathize with people, enter into their world and help them feel valued and accepted. Research has shown that the right connection with a therapist who understands and accepts you can be a life changing experience
I have over ten years of experience working with Complex PTSD, OCD, BPD, and other mental health issues. I specialize in helping people to redefine trauma, viewing it as incidents fostering beliefs, feelings and ways of being in the world which unless challenged, continue to drive our thoughts, feelings, behaviours.
I have a diploma in Child and Youth work and a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social work. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and use Solution Focused Therapy and mindfulness in my sessions where needed. I obtained a Diploma in Personal Nutrition and Sports and Fitness nutrition.
I am a woman who is dedicated and driven to support your journey. I am here to help heal unresolved past pain, help build healthy relationships, overcome fears and live a balanced life. I believe each person has strengths and burns for a desire for a joyful life.
The therapeutic relationship is a safe place for you to understand past issues and core beliefs as you gain insight and strength to address current challenges. Whether you prefer a psychodynamic approach or a mindfulness cognitive behavioural treatment (CBT) approach, counselling will assist you in resolving past issues and achieving your personal wellness goals.
