I've been a registered occupational therapist since 2001 and a clinical counsellor since 2014. In recent years I have focused my practice in helping people heal from the effects of traumatic experiences, anxiety, insomnia, coping with stress and illness as well as and concerns particular to those in the LGBTIQ communities. I work with people to help them process and heal from the mental, emotional and somatic effects following traumatic experiences such as car crashes, workplace accidents, interpersonal violence, and those who encounter distressing situations in the course of their work such as first responders, and other health care workers including other psychotherapists.

My therapy work is informed by the intention to offer an individualized approach to helping each person I meet to adapt, grow and thrive with life challenges. I’m informed by a variety of therapeutic approaches that include the body and mind including: Somatic Experiencing, Focusing, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD in addition to Attachment Focused EMDR.
