My Approach

I provide an integrated co-active client-centred counselling approach to adult Individuals and couples who are seeking improvement in their lives and relationships. Enhancing self-awareness and boundaries along with several approaches are provided to assist you in alleviating discomforts, some are listed above and each is tailored to you. 

As a Certified Complex Trauma - IFS Trained Psychotherapist, CCC, RP - Q, we will discover your inner voice, heal the past, understand their possible hindrances in your present and provide you with the resources to get you stabilized. We will look at all your parts in the eye of Internal Family Systems to help integrate all your protective and wounded parts with your authentic self. Although we may have a guided map, you are still in charge, it is centred around you. We will apply the tools to assist you in achieving your goals towards a happier future, only until you are stabilized can you grow.  

We were all taught inappropriately not to feel our emotions and minimize our struggles, which creates dysfunction in our adult present lives. By understanding your different protective parts' behaviours and fears, we can reassign them to different roles, thus, protecting you more appropriately and healing your inner child. Taking a compassionate and curious observance rather than blaming, criticizing, or victimizing yourself or others frees you from the binds of discordance. Keys to your peace are through the acceptance and validation of your emotions. We are all allowed to feel what we feel and we can still respond and be heard without creating further damage to ourselves and others by having a compassionate perspective and dialogue. 

When you connect with yourself you can engage and connect deeper with others. Strengthening your self-care, and boundaries promotes healthier relationships and open communication. Understanding yourself unlocks the ability to start understanding where the other person is coming from, bridging an alliance, the common goal to connect.

CFT, EMDR, IFS & MBCT Somatic Interventions
The Internal Family System (IFS) is a transformative tool that conceives every human being as a system of protective and wounded inner parts that require validation and reassignments to create appropriate behaviours and experiences. The mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing. Just like members of a family, inner parts are forced from their valuable states into extreme roles within us. Self is in everyone, it can’t be damaged. It knows how to heal.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and somatic meditative practices to become intuned to your body's somatic signals to decrease the flooding of their sympathetic response of the fight-flight and freeze regulation system. Tuning into the feelings, thoughts and experiences in the body promotes being in a more grounded state where we can connect to our Self, rational, clear state vs. the irrational, reactive skewed viewpoints.

Compassion-focused therapy (CFS) complements MBCT through learning to surrender and accept what we can change and what we cannot but building resiliency and honouring what we are experiencing and feeling is valid in a compassionate, curious and neural perspective. 
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing- EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to focus briefly on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. 
Each client's experiences are based on readiness, goals, and practice of the tools provided to you to promote tolerance to manage future triggers and calmer and compassionate response to them. 
Couples Therapy 
I work with both heterosexual and LGBTQ+ couples, assisting them with the tools to understand where their partner is coming from. Accepting differences as a gift rather than a burden whilst working together to meet in the middle.
Discovering the dating ritual, the phases in relationships, and the individual developmental phases that your partner is in helps you to navigate through uncharted stressful territories. You will start by filling out the 277 Gottman Questionnaire Checkup that will highlight your conflict resolution styles, love maps, compatibility,  and more.
We will be focusing on learning to recognize when we are flooded and when our partner is flooded and to learn to hold space and listen to each other without having an agenda, fixing, interrupting, criticizing and more. By helping each other feel heard and seen by each partner we will be able to navigate through compromising and the art of negotiations.
We will incorporate the Internal Family Systems approach so that you can understand your internal triggers and not take them out on your partner, or try to change them to soothe your wounds, but to share, connect and take responsibility in nurturing and soothing your internal system to prevent flooding.
You will learn to build more fondness and admiration for each other, support one another's dreams, and learn not only your love languages but the language of finances, parenting and more.
All of these building blocks will further solidify your friendship and future including your sexual connection with one another. By recognizing and healing your own wounds will you be able to see your partner's and decrease the need to be defensive or fix when the other is triggered, you will truly be able to listen and hold space thus creating more safety and connection to share and grow deeper together.
