Offering Secure Online Counselling
I am a trauma therapist and am here to help you get to the root of what is causing your distress. I view anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem, relationship difficulties and anger as symptoms of unhealed wounds from distressing and overwhelming experiences.
I will walk with you on the journey of healing these experiences of trauma:
Abuse and Neglect in Childhood
Our work together can help you understand how the unhealed wounds of your childhood may be contributing to how you feel about yourself and your life today.
You may also be carrying the wounds of your ancestors (intergenerational trauma), pain passed down through generations of your family that is no longer meant to be carried. You can start this healing for yourself, and from this place of wholeness, allow the same for your children and grandchildren.
Significant Life Changes
Unforeseen events can loosen life’s anchors, leading to confusion, fear, and helplessness. Such situations include divorce, infidelity, job loss, and career changes.
Grief and Loss
Loss can be the most painful emotion a person can bear. Grief is usually an emotion associated with death, but can cover all feelings of loss.
Current events of trauma include experiencing a natural disaster, accident, or being given a diagnosis of a critical illness. Deep wounds also result from domestic abuse, and experiences of war or terrorism.
These painful experiences can be exacerbated when there are already underlying unhealed childhood wounds.
Experiences of discrimination, inequality, poverty, and the difficulties of immigration affect the psyche with a depth that result in shame and hopelessness. I understand these experiences and can help you work through these.
What I Offer
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a Certified Hypnotherapist with the National Guild of Hypnotists.
I offer an integrative approach that is tailored to you, your needs, and goals in our work together:
Healing your thoughts and emotions: I help you enhance self-awareness and why you think, feel, and act the way you do through understanding neuroscience (including neuroplasticity), brain development, and nervous system’s stress reactions.
I am trained in EMDR Therapy which is a powerful and evidence-based technique in the treatment of complex trauma and PTSD, and which is my treatment of choice in trauma reprocessing. I am pursuing EMDR certification and certification as a Complex Trauma Treatment Professional.
I have advanced training in the treatment of Structural Dissociation and use Ego State Therapy, both of which help in understanding internal conflict, feeling stuck or shutting down.
Healing symptoms expressed in your body: In addition to EMDR, I use the somatic techniques of Focusing and Body Dialoguing.
And, for those on a spiritual path: I can help you with transpersonal exploration of soul purpose and divine connection. I am trained in Past Life Regression and Life Between Lives Regression which can provide profound insights and foster healing. I integrate Chakra Clearing and Balancing with people who resonate with this energetic system, as well as facilitate meeting with one’s Spirit Animal and Spirit Guide through hypnosis/guided visualization.
I will be honoured to walk with you on your journey of self-discovery and healing.
