As a therapist, my focus is to create an environment for you to accomplish your goals. This could include feeling better, improving your relationships, enhancing your parenting skills, coping with grief and loss, overcoming past trauma, or addressing obstacles that are adversely affecting your mental health. I have over 30 years’ experience working with children and adults as a social worker in schools, mental health, and child welfare settings. With compassion and caring, I use a variety of tools adapted to what is right for you and your situation.
I offer EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) to help overcome the effects of trauma. If you are interested in exploring mind-body connections, I utilize trauma-sensitive yoga. In some circumstances I use DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy) to provide coping tools to manage the stress and challenges in your life.
It can be difficult to reach out for help. I do my best to create emotional safety, honour your vulnerability, and walk alongside you as you struggle. I lead with compassion and without judgement. Thank you for considering me as your therapist. I look forward to hearing from you.
