Registered Psychotherapist (RP)
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with over seventeen years of counselling experience. I've completed the following additional trainings: Complex Trauma Certification Training Level 1 & 2, EMDR Certification, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Training Level 1. I'm registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and with the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals.
In my psychotherapy practice, I work from a place of creating a safe and caring environment where we can develop a healthy therapeutic relationship to cultivate change. I integrate several therapeutic approaches such as mindfulness, narrative, psychodynamic, body-oriented therapies, emotion and trauma focused therapies.
Using an integrative framework offers an array of possibilities to develop strategies to connect to your mind, body, emotions, and to your experiences of past events without feeling overwhelmed and avoidant.
We know that we can’t change or alter history, however, how we remember, feel, and understand the impact of our experiences can help guide our present and future selves.
Recovery and healing takes place within the wraparound embrace of relationships. Together, we'll discover new possibilities to live in the present moment with greater ease, will work toward cultivating change, and nurture a greater sense of self. You will be welcomed and heard!
