I believe that we all have a tremendous ability to heal, change, and grow. We cruise through the day, not often giving much thought to the encounters we have, but in reality, there’s a brain behind the scenes working furiously to course-correct and catalog every moment of our lives. Sometimes, it’s important to pull the veil aside and take a moment to check and see how the narrative is unfolding. That’s why I believe that through awareness, acceptance, and exploration of ourselves through meaning making, we can all overcome the difficulties in our lives.
I work with all types of people!
I’ve worked with children, adolescence, adults, and families for close to ten years. I believe that even though we all experience the hardships of life in different contexts, we all have the capacity to suffer equally. I welcome adult clients of all backgrounds, non-binary individuals, and people of all gender identities, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
I have experience working with people who have experienced trauma.
Trauma is kind of a scary topic. It evokes colourful imagery of war movies and dishevelled soldiers. But the reality is, trauma lives within all of us, it just shows up in different ways. While the neurological underpinnings of trauma are profoundly interesting, in the simplest sense, trauma is the relic of our desire to survive, an artifact of our experiences and how we learned to live and to grow. So, show me a human with a pulse and I’ll show you someone who’s experienced trauma. I believe that working with trauma requires dedication, and vulnerability, but most importantly, trust in your therapist.
