Reaching out for help can be scary. It’s my job to provide a safe and welcoming place for you to explore your difficulties in a way that won’t overwhelm you. We will work together and at your pace.
I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, grief or have simply lost the joy in your life, I believe the answers to your issues are within you; you just need someone to guide you. My role is to listen, ask questions that can help deepen your understanding of the situation, provide a different perspective, and sometimes pose questions that challenge your thinking. I always do this from a place of compassion and curiosity.
I work with children, teens and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma and relationship issues, and use a variety of modalities including CBT, ACT, and Narrative Therapy. I also believe that what’s going on in our bodies is an important clue to the state of our mental health, so I tend to incorporate somatic techniques into our sessions to build awareness and coping skills.
If you’ve been struggling with issues, trying to work things out on your own but just not able to get ahead, I’d love to work with you.
On a personal note, I am a mother to 15-year-old twins, 2 chocolate Labs (a puppy and her grandmother), and a big orange cat named Buddy, and for the last several years I’ve fostered cats and kittens with the SPCA. I am a volunteer with Hospice Halifax and the Nova Scotia Chapter of Dying With Dignity Canada, two organizations that I deeply respect and passionately support.
As a private clinic, we’re unable to handle emergency situations.
