I deeply believe in our innate ability to grow and heal when optimal circumstances for healing are in place. In my work with each individual client, I strive to provide and foster those conditions within the therapeutic space and the therapeutic relationship. This includes first and foremost my empathic, fully accepting and authentic presence with each client, my intention to always work collaboratively with each person and my honouring of each person’s existing strengths.
I provide counselling to adults (ages 18 and up) who seek counselling support for
- grief, bereavement, loss
- chronic/terminal illness
- perinatal depression/anxiety/rage
- perinatal loss
- relationship conflicts (with romantic partners, family members, work colleagues, supervisors, etc.)
I incorporate principles from Person – Centered Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Narrative Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy and have a keen awareness of structural factors that affect a person’s well-being and ability to thrive.
As a Registered Social Worker / Somatic Counsellor who is also a Restorative Exercise and Alignment Coach, I am attuned to the intersections of our physical and emotional health, as well as the effect our sedentary culture has on our well-being. In addition to talk therapy, I am happy to guide you through stretching, releasing or strengthening exercises to address areas of muscular tension or weakness. I have a particular interest and experience in tension and stress patterns that involve the pelvis and the core.
I am open to providing counselling outside of the chair and while walking in nature.
As of September 2020 I am living in Dresden, Germany. I continue to be a Registered Social Worker in Ontario and continue to work online with existing and new clients. That means I will continue to provide social work receipts to clients residing in Ontario.
I provide services in English and German.
