Counselling has been a natural calling for me; an intuitive flex of my gifts, my interests, my passion, and my innate values that helps me to meet each person with skill, authenticity and calm. I value guiding each person to finding their inner capacity and power to heal themselves, to create peace in the present and to understand and heal harm from the past. Counselling offers an immediate relief from being with another in the overwhelming moments of our lives, liberation and freedom from limiting patterns and beliefs about ourselves, and deep joy, satisfaction, and confidence when we have enough space within ourselves to create the life and relationships we want.
I have been drawn to working with adults and couples in areas such as: trauma/complex-trauma, post-traumatic stress injuries, abuse and healing, emotional experience and regulation, relational difficulties and couples counselling, intra-personal healing and self-compassion development, spirituality and spiritual abuse, anxiety and depression. I am specifically trained in trauma and PTSD, Occupationally Aware therapy for First Responders and Public Safety Personnel, in Gottman Method Couples therapy and emotionally-focused couples counselling. My therapeutic work is informed by neuroscientific, trauma-informed, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), attachment and somatic orientations.
