Know You’re In Good Hands
Trusting another person with your deepest thoughts takes courage. Let me tell you about myself and my practice.
Sometimes the body shows us things that the mind hasn’t yet revealed. I specialize in somatic psychotherapy, an approach that incorporates the mind, body, and emotions in the healing process.
I’m experienced in play-based therapies that are built around safety and connection. The child is always the focus and all decisions are made for their best interest.
Assessments can provide a greater understanding of factors that affect how we operate in our daily lives. With this insight, we can focus on shifting perspectives, supporting our areas of difficulty, and using our strengths!
MY SPECIALTIES INCLUDE...
Methods that Help My Clients
Psychologists have a developed approach and reliable methods. My approach style is collaborative, interactive, and warm. It’s built on client-centered techniques that take each individual’s experience into account.
Depending on the needs of each client, I draw from the following psychotherapeutic techniques:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
“Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that helps you recognize negative or unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns.”
Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
“The goals of interpersonal therapy (IPT) are to help you communicate better with others and address problems that contribute to your depression.” — Healthline
Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)
SFT concentrates on a patient’s strengths, abilities and resources thus empowering the patient to overcome their own obstacles with hope and optimism. There is a strong focus on the present and future, rather than the past. — eMentalHealth
Hakomi Mindfulness-Centred Somatic Psychotherapy
“Hakomi integrates Eastern principles of nonviolence and mindfulness with a comprehensive and experiential body-centered methodology.” — Hakomi Institute
Somatic and Attachment Focused (S.A.F.E.) EMDR
“Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) refers to an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress.” — Healthline

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
“Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.” — MBCT.com
This Is About You & What You’re Going Through
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to start…
You don’t need a specific reason to go to therapy. One of the most common things I hear is, “I’m just feeling overwhelmed,” and that’s a good place to start. I’m here to listen, get to the depths, and help you make sense of it all.
If you’re wondering how your child processes information…
I specialize in psychoeducational assessments that look into a child’s strengths and weaknesses and uncovers potential learning disabilities. Assessments help parents and caregivers relate to their child, and more importantly, help the child through any difficulties they’re experiencing.
If you’re going through relationship difficulties or grief…
Whether you’re going through divorce, separation, or loss of a loved one, I can help you figure out what’s driving your emotions and work towards calming a sense of unsettlement.
If you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, or ADHD…
I help teenagers, adults, and children manage the effects of mental disorders on their daily lives. For example, I help people with ADHD get organized, switch tasks, utilize their brain chemicals, and more. Treatments are always tailored to the individual.
