About me and my therapy practice

Life feels like sinking in quicksand? Are you feeling wrung out, scared, angry, sad, stuck? Life feels too much, heavy and out of control? Do you feel the weight of past traumas holding you back? Are you feeling lost and battling self-doubt?

I get it. I hear you. You are not alone.

Having navigated my own path through healing I can offer the support you need to find your direction and create a life filled with purpose, build self-compassion, and heal.

There is hope, and together we can figure this out, one step at a time.

I use my extensive training and lived experience to help you:

Heal from past or current hurts: Neglect, abandonment, abuse, bereavement or other traumas can leave lasting effects. I can help you leave them behind.

Find your direction: Maybe you're chasing perfection or feel adrift. I can help you gain clarity and set goals for a fulfilling life.

Ditch the inner critic: Stop beating yourself up for mistakes! We all mess up. Let's build self acceptance and inner strength together. You have got this.

My background in corporate, education, and outdoor work allows me to connect with people from all walks of life.

Imagine finally feeling heard and understood.

Imagine what it may be like to have your feelings acknowledged and validated.

Imagine happier and more fulfilling relationships, both with yourself and the people around you.

Imagine feeling the weight lifted from your shoulders, being truly present and in control of your life.

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space to explore your pain, struggles and challenges. It can support you in moving forward and begin healing.

Through counselling, you can explore and process your emotions, leading to a sense of relief and empowerment.

Let's start your healing journey today. Let's talk?

Practice description

My Therapy Approaches:

Self-Discovery & Empowerment:

Person-Centered: Explore yourself, find inner wisdom, create a fulfilling life (collaborative, patient listening, reflection, personalized solutions).

Existential: Explore life's big questions (meaning, purpose), create a fulfilling life (autonomy, choice, ownership).

Present Moment Focus:

Gestalt: Explore how past affects present (thoughts, feelings, body sensations). Develop healthy coping mechanisms (creative tools possible).

CBT Techniques: Manage difficult emotions/situations (identify negative thought patterns, replace with helpful ones).

Inner Healing & Growth:

Inner Child Work: Connect with, heal younger parts of yourself (past hurts/trauma), build self-compassion.

Parts Work: Understand and manage different "parts" of you (all valid!) influencing thoughts, feelings, behaviors.

Mind & Body Connection:

Somatic Techniques: Manage stress/anxiety (breathwork, grounding exercises).

Therapy Tailored to You

Therapy isn't a one-size-fits-all deal. I use different aspects of various approaches and theories to create a personalized approach that works for you. We can explore your feelings, thoughts, and experiences together in a way that feels comfortable and safe.

When Words Fail You

Sometimes, talking isn't always easiest. That's why I offer creative therapy options, for those clients that would like to explore different ways of working. It is always by invitation, and if it is not for you, that's absolutely fine. Whether it's art, writing, using different cards and prompts, or even exploring with sand trays, there are ways to express yourself beyond words.

You don’t need to be particularly creative or an artist. The creative interventions are about your process, not the end result.

Walk and Talk Therapy

Traditional therapy settings aren't for everyone. If you find nature calming or enjoy being active, we can explore the option of walk-and-talk therapy.
