It's natural for us to seek safety, security and stability; however, there are often obstacles in our way that prevent us from achieving the comfort and simplicity we desire.
I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor who specializes in trauma.
The scope of trauma is diverse, but its markings may appear as depression and anxiety, grief, affect dysregulation, substance abuse, among others.
My goal is to facilitate the repair of these experiential wounds, largely through the lens of somatic, attachment, and cognitive based frameworks.
Perhaps you are ready and willing to make meaningful life changes, or maybe you're simply looking for a deeper connection to self, others, and the community. Either way, you've come to the right place.
