As a psychotherapist and trauma therapist, my approach is informed by Compassionate Inquiry and IFS. I am a Compassionate Inquiry Founding Facilitator, EMDR Consultant in Training and Clinical Supervisor. I integrate various trauma therapy modalities including EMDR, IFS, Poly-Vagal Therapy, Trauma Sensitive Yoga - Meditation, Art Therapy and Ancient Wisdom Teachings. I support clients through a range of challenges and concerns (emotional, mental, relational and spiritual), and have a special interest in the treatment of complex and intergenerational trauma with adults as well as supporting clients with medicine work preparation and integration. I have worked alongside Indigenous community since 2007 as a helper and counsellor, my approach to psychotherapy has been strongly influenced by these connections. I am passionate about personal change and awareness; this intention forms the foundation of my work with clients and community.
