*Offering virtual trauma therapy throughout Ontario and in-person therapy in London.* While I believe that everyone carries within themselves the capacity to heal, during difficult periods in life our personal strengths can be impossible to access. At these times, we may need a caring and non-judgmental therapist to assist us. My intention is to provide you with a safe space to share your concerns and to help you to fulfill the hopes you have for your life. As each individual is unique, so is therapy. I adapt my approach to meet your personal goals and together we will come to identify the process that best serves you.

I specialize in trauma therapy, meaning that I work with you to explore how past experiences inform your current life. I can help by working with your system to explore and unburden the parts still impacted by your past. I primarily work from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR Therapy lens, incorporating mindfulness and somatic therapy as well.

It is not easy to talk to a therapist about the things we have done, or have been not been able to do, and that we feel shame about. My speciality is assisting people through the experiences and feelings that have a lasting effect on one's life with non judgement and openness. Contact me today to schedule your first session and we can make a plan together.
