Specialty: Individual, Couple and Group psychotherapy
Hi, I’m Anseh, welcome!
Psychotherapy is a kind and courageous gift that you give yourself when you are struggling and would benefit from the support and guidance of a trustworthy, compassionate and knowledgeable therapist. I am a clinical social worker and psychotherapist and have been practicing since 2005. My work is informed by anti-oppression, intersectionality, social justice, harm reduction, neuroscience and trauma research. I take an integrative and strengths-based approach that draws on a variety of methods that incorporate the brain, mind, heart, emotions, behaviours, somatic (bodily) sensations and other visceral dimensions. I am also a certified practitioner of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback and use methods that help shift distressing and depleting psycho-physiological states.
I work with individual adults and couples who may feel stuck and are facing various challenges, including:
- Anxiety, panic and insomnia
- Depression, isolation and dissociation
- Shame, low self-esteem and self-harm
- Pregnancy and post-partum mood challenges
- Parenting and caregiving stress
- Chronic stress, nervous system disregulation and burnout
- Trauma – developmental, intergenerational, vicarious, systemic, collective
- Attachment, relationship, communication and intimacy issues
- Substance misuse
- Illness and chronic pain
- Loss and grief
The most important aspect in how effective and helpful psychotherapy will be lies in the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. If I have the privilege of working with you, you can expect to be deeply listened to, validated, challenged and cared for without judgement. I work to help clients make lasting changes and to deepen their ability to cultivate mindfulness, acceptance and self-compassion. I feel honoured to engage in deeply satisfying work with my clients and be a witness to innate wisdom, resiliency and transformation. I love working with people from all different backgrounds and the work we do together will be tailored to your unique needs and goals.
