I have a passion to work with individuals to uncover underlying patterns of responding to life’s ruptures. Working with automatic responses from an experiential approach offers insight into mind, body, spirit and feelings.
Do you find yourself replaying scenarios or sitting in foggy thinking? During times of stress our experiences can seem confusing and overwhelming. Having a safe space to name what is happening helps to bring clarity to our experience. Whether you are working through a current stressor or an older wound, identifying thoughts and feelings helps you to understand your needs. I work with clients to identify automatic patterns that may be maintaining attitudes and behaviours that are no longer helpful. These patterns often originate in our early attachments with caregivers. Together we consider alternate ways of responding so that you can address your personal goals and relational needs.
My counselling practice includes supporting individuals experiencing: workplace stress, anxiety, depression, bullying, low self-esteem, life transitions, anger and complex trauma. Given the integrative and collaborative focus of my practice, I adopt evidenced based techniques from: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solutions-Focused Therapy, Ego-State Therapy, and Attachment Theory. My humanistic relational approach is informed by Self-in-relationship Theory as well as my personal reflections as a partner, parent, coach and friend.
You don’t have to stay feeling stuck. Learning how our individual attachment patterns have shaped our thoughts, feelings and behaviours can be both liberating and empowering. If you think that understanding attachment patterns might be an approach that resonates with you, feel free to contact me.
