As a retired member of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), I offer a wealth of life experience, adding to my clinical knowledge. During my time in the CAF, I experienced stories of addiction, relationship breakdown, and PTSD, which led me to change careers and help people through a counselling lens. As each person shows up with their own unique experiences, I use a variety of tools and techniques to best suit your needs. I draw from a variety of modalities that include Internal Family Systems, Narrative, Polyvagal Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Theory, Dialectical Behavioural Theory, Acceptance Theory, Solution Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Additionally, I include mindfulness and somatic approaches into treatment plans, drawing from my yoga and mediation teacher trainings. Currently, I offer individual counselling to adults 17 years or older and couples counselling.
My areas of interest include shame, guilt, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, trauma, crisis, acceptance of physical/neurological disabilities, interpersonal relationships and separation and divorce. With that said, I understand that change is difficult but believe that micro-steps forward will lead to big results.“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu
