My Story

I became a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor because I truly believe that counselling works as a mode of healing for the emotional pains that we experience in our lives. I have been fortunate to have counselling throughout my own life and it made a huge difference for me in being able to process and talk about my losses. I have lost many people in my life that I deeply loved, including my younger brother to kidney disease at the age of 24. I lived for many years with chronic pain after a car accident and I kept a lot of my feelings about it pent up inside and overworked and overdid many things to cope with the pain. I came to realize in time that hitting rock bottom brought me to ask for help, which I had never been able to do before then. Asking for help was uncomfortable for me, a person who always thought I had to do it all on my own. However, that is what saved me and showed me that there was hope. I could ask for help and support and it was ok, I didn’t have to shoulder everything by myself anymore. I think it’s important to see ourselves through the lens of what has happened to us, rather than what we feel may be wrong with us. 


 I help my clients by offering tools to help them cope with the difficult situations they are dealing with, offering new perspectives and insight into their experiences and by offering a realistic and collaborative framework for reaching their goals. We work together to understand the link between thoughts, feelings, beliefs, emotions, and coping mechanisms while being curious and compassionate. We can uncover the answers together and collaboratively discuss possible solutions.

My approach to counselling

I take an integrated, trauma-informed approach to counselling sessions. I choose the best tools and modalities for you in the session and request feedback to see that it is working for you. This may mean some breathing and grounding before we start our session and checking in with you to see how you are feeling and what you want to focus on that day. My integrated approach means that I use a Person-centred Approach informed by CBT, Narrative Therapy, and Somatic Therapy. I am trained in the Integrated Trauma and Attachment Model (ITATM) which is a safe, structured, holistic model for processing trauma. I am a Certified Grief Informed Professional and trained in Emotion-focused Therapy for Couples.

The model I use is holistic/ biopsychosocial. In holistic counselling sessions, there is an emphasis on balance between all aspects of you; mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual (if that resonates for you). We focus not just on your healing but also on what your goals are for the future when you feel ready. Sessions are tailored to your needs
