I truly believe that choosing to tell and own our story is the bravest thing we will ever do. My commitment is to create a safe, non-judgemental, and warm place where you can feel seen and fully heard. In my clinical practice, it is a privilege and pleasure to work with youth (14 yrs+), adult individuals, and couples. I support others as they work through various mental health difficulties, relational issues, sexuality, overwhelming experiences, and identity. I have a special interest and research focus on emotion regulation issues (uncontrolled/overcontrolled emotion), intimacy, shame, and anxiety disorders.
Founded in evidence-based theories, I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Psychodynamic, & the Family Systems modality; adjusting my approach to best meet the needs of each person. Together we will begin to explore negative thoughts, unprocessed emotion, and unwanted behaviours that keep you stuck. Through the completion of Sue Johnson’s EFT Externship in Couples Therapy, I use theories of adult bonding to help increase connection and decrease negative patterns of distress.
My hope for this process is that you may have life to the full and live to your highest potential. I would be honoured to journey alongside you as you share your story and move towards a new place of healing, self-awareness, & growth.
