I believe that everyone has an innate capacity to heal and embody a felt sense of wholeness as well as aliveness. At times, you may feel overwhelmed with a number of circumstances, or a specific experience that may leave you feeling numb, exhausted, anxious, fear or anger. At other times you may feel inspired to explore new options in life, and are seeking someone to support you in this exploration. It is in these times that I can be trusted to support, guide and provide direction when needed to navigate both your internal and external landscape. I will work with you to engage your innate capacity to heal and discover or rediscover your aliveness once again.SERVICESI work with adults addressing a range of concerns and I have specific training in treating trauma and stress related issues. I work collaboratively with clients, developing an individualized therapy plan that will best address their specific concerns and hopes. I have listed some of the areas I have specific training in. If you don’t see a particular issue listed please feel free to contact me and discuss the possibility of my counselling services.-Trauma-Sexual Abuse-Anxiety-Depression-Grief and Loss-Eating Disorders-Addictions-Life Transitions-Creative Expression-Clinical Supervision for Art TherapistAPPROACHESMy training has taught me that it is equally important to listen to the story of the body as it is to listen to the story of words. I embrace a gentle, honest and curious attitude in my work with others and strive to create a space for safety, understanding and compassion. I hold a deep respect for the inner wisdom and resources that reside within each person and value their own journey towards wholeness and an enhanced quality of life.My approach to working with others has been shaped and informed by a number of areas and continues to evolve. I embrace a multi faceted perspective that is strongly rooted in the area of body oriented psychotherapy and resources.

Services I offer: complimentary half hour consultation on the telephone or in person to gives us a chance to see if we are a good fit for counselling together. You are under no obligation to continue. If my practice is full or I feel I may not best meet your needs, I can refer you to one of my colleagues. If we continue together I will provide consent and policy forms to be completed prior to our first session. In our first session I will ask questions and prompt you to share reflections to generate insight and the direction for us to continue on. I will provide suggestion to how we may further proceed and together we shall assess, if any, of the other MODALITIES I offer can be of service to you. You will be supported throughout to listen deeply to yourself and communicate your needs, desires and understanding. Additional Modalities. I have found that the therapeutic process can sometimes be enhanced by incorporating creative, exploratory experiences. You will have the opportunity to discover yourself anew through movement, posture, vocalization, writing, song writing, tactile creations, therapeutic gardening, yoga and/or theatrical representation. I will never ask you to do anything you’re not interested in trying as the work is intended to extend your understanding of your inner self. To help move through stagnation, confusion and frustration to more fulfilling states of being. But it will start with and return to your own innate interest and willingness. You will be continuously reminded to notice and listen to your own truth as the primary navigational tool. Our bodies are often a short cut to understanding patterns that are no longer useful, and provide insight into new ways of being and expressing what is most needing to be heard. There is a vast intelligence and esoteric understanding available when we are willing to brave the discomfort of exploring our uncharted, inner terrain. It is my intention to create a space where you feel safe and supported to be seen and heard.
