RP, CCC, MA(Ed) COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGY
I am passionate about helping individuals face and find the courage and strength to overcome the obstacles in their lives. I have experience working with individuals facing relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and dealing with the long-lasting impacts of childhood abuse. I have a particular interest in helping people through the abuse and traumas in their lives and helping them to find their inner strength and resources to be able to live the life they want to lead.
I strive to maintain a person-centered approach with clients to ensure that they feel heard and their individual needs and goals are being met. Using an integrative approach, I tailor treatment to each client as an individual, building on their strengths to create lasting and meaningful change in their lives. I strive to build a warm, judgment-free space for clients to be their authentic selves. I believe there is great strength in being vulnerable, and I’ll be with you through the whole process!
I look forward to the changes we can make together!
Everyone experiences difficulties in their day-to-day life. Whether you are experiencing loss and grief, anxiety, trauma, or struggling with the impacts of childhood abuse, it helps to talk about it! Psychotherapy provides a safe space to explore emotional hardships, life transitions, relationship difficulties, and the natural (but hard!) difficulties that comes with the ups and downs of life. We are built to be in relationship with others in life. When entering into a therapeutic relationship, you’re able to express your feelings, change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, as well as develop and hone healthy coping skills. Psychotherapy can be useful for everyone!

Individual Adult Psychotherapy – 50 minutes
In psychotherapy, you will be able to enter and co-create a safe space for yourself to explore, discuss, and express your inner thoughts, feelings, and hardships. I am here to walk alongside you in this journey of self-exploration and personal growth and development.

MSW, RSW, RYT-500
I offer traditional psychotherapy and equine assisted psychotherapy to adults and youth 12+. Through this work, I support people who are ready to reconnect with their bodies, gain insight from their emotions, and re-awaken their connection with their authentic self. I believe that each person holds the answers within themselves and through our work together, I will support you in building on your unique inner resources to make meaningful changes in your life. I honour the profound healing and transformation that can occur through and within our closest relationships, which often act as mirrors to our internal experience.
My approach to therapy is collaborative, trauma-sensitive, and affirming of the intersection of our wider social structures on identity and lived experience. I draw from therapeutic modalities including emotion-focused therapy, internal family systems, and mindfulness-informed approaches. I take a holistic perspective in understanding the mind-body connection and, when useful, may integrate components of breathwork, yoga, meditation, and/or expressive arts into our work together.
I look forward to connecting with you and beginning this journey together!
In keeping up with our day-to-day lives, we don’t often have the opportunity to pause, breathe, and take notice of our unfolding experience. Therapy provides a safe space for us to explore aspects of our internal experience and shed light on the patterns we may have developed in our lives that are no longer serving us. Through this emerging awareness, we can begin to shift patterns that are holding us back and take steps towards the things that matter most. Therapy is for individuals of all ages and life experience who are interested in deepening their connection with themselves and creating meaningful change in their lives.
To book an appointment or schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
15-minute Phone Consultation (Free)
This is an opportunity for us to connect and discuss your intentions for therapy and see whether it feels like a good fit to begin working together. You are also welcome to ask any questions about me and my approach to therapy.
Individual Therapy – 50 minutes
Individual therapy is an opportunity to explore your patterns and step into a deeper relationship with yourself. Some people use therapy as an opportunity to work through difficulties that may be presenting in their lives, while others come to therapy as a way to keep themselves accountable to goals and take steps towards positive changes they want to create in their life.
Adolescent Therapy – 50 minutes
Adolescent therapy is a safe space for youth (ages 12+) to share their thoughts, feelings, and internal experiences. For many young people, adolescence can be a time of transition and turbulence, as they are figuring out the type of person they want to be and determining how they’d like to show up in the world. Therapy provides an opportunity for youth to explore their emerging identities, values, perspectives about the world as they navigate this stage of life.
Family Therapy – 50 minutes
Family therapy is an immersive opportunity for families to increase their connection and shift patterns that are no longer helpful. Family therapy is always strengths-based and focuses on increasing attunement and understanding between family members. Generally, family therapy is recommended for children under the age of 12, as caregiver involvement in therapy can increase positive outcomes for kids. It can also be supportive for teens as an alternative to individual therapy, especially when navigating challenges in family relationships.

The decision to begin your counselling journey can be a difficult one. I aim to create a safe environment where you can feel supported and heard in your vulnerability. My practice is trauma-informed, meaning it recognizes that trauma isn’t solely a clinical experience, it also reflects complex historical and social realities that are often ongoing. My practice is also anti-oppressive, in that it pays attention to how feelings such as powerlessness, frustration or hopelessness aren’t always in our heads, but can also be valid reactions to power imbalances have done harm. Part of my work is to combine a clinically and socially informed practice that is tailored to you and responsive to your needs.
I completed my BSW in 2014 and my MSW in 2016 at McMaster University where I also work as an educator to social work students. I have worked in the field of human services since 2008, working in acute mental health, crisis work, and sexual violence. I specialize in trauma and sexual violence, as well as a wide range of issues including mental health, identity, and life transitions.
Life is a journey of growth and change. And no matter how daunting the change, or painful the growth, we deserve to be supported on that journey. If you’re struggling to take a step forward, or are unpacking the memories from journeys of the past, counselling provides a safe space for exploration and problem solving. This might include mental health, trauma, major life transitions, and identity exploration. Wherever you are on your journey, we can get to the next step together.
I offer both short term and long term counselling to suit your specific needs. I use narrative based or talk therapy, in conjunction with other approaches, as a means to delve into the personal story, and to build capacity to work through issues independently with time. We will work on regaining control of the self, and our perceptions of the self by delving into life stories and exploring important themes of your life journey.
Feel free to reach me at email@example.com or by phone at 2899216459 if you have more questions about counselling or would like to book a free consultation.
