People say that life is a journey. Sometimes, this journey can be a rough one. You feel lost, defeated, alone, and full of fear.
But you haven’t given up. There’s a part of you that tells you that somehow there’s still hope, that you just need a helping hand.
I can help. I am someone who accompanies individuals through difficult terrains on their path. Since 2006, I have been supporting people in traversing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, isolation, life transition, and discrimination.
I am a Registered Social Worker with a bachelor’s degree in business management and master’s degrees in both psychology and social work.
I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities that I am trained in, which include: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Clinical Hypnosis, Parts Work, Attachment-Based Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Meditation, and Reiki.
My practice is also guided by teachings from my personal journey of healing and growth. Like so many people, I had my own struggles with anxiety attacks, depression, suicidal thoughts, anger, grief, and shame. I understand what it’s like to be in the dark: to be rejected and abandoned, to experience loss, to feel hopeless and powerless, and to be a target of discrimination and prejudice. I know how it is to be wounded, and this helps me to bring compassion and understanding into the therapy space. My lived experiences also taught me a few things about how to deal with one’s woundedness in a healthy way, and I integrate these insights into how I tailor my approach for each individual that I support.
I will listen to you intently with my eyes, ears, heart, and spirit. We will examine your experiences, thoughts, emotions, and behavior and make sense of them from different perspectives. We will explore your goals and brainstorm ways to get past internal and external obstacles to reaching your objectives.
When appropriate, I will assist you in working with your consciousness. This could involve EMDR, inner child reparenting, visualization exercises, guided meditation, and/or clinical hypnosis.
Many people consider their spiritual life as crucial to their mental, emotional, and physical health. If this is true for you, I will create opportunities for you to reflect on your spiritual life and its impact on your well-being.
We will come up with a general plan for your sessions, however, we will also adapt the plan to what is needed in the moment. We will do the work together and we will frequently fine tune how we conduct our therapy.
