MY STORY

I have been working in the field of community mental health for the past 11 years, completing my formal education in Criminology (BA, MA) and Social Work (MSW).   I have developed a passion for working alongside individuals as they embark on their journey of self-discovery, personal growth and healing.  Navigating the terrain of our inner struggles to create lasting meaningful change is one of the most courageous things we can do as human beings, and continues to inspire me in my work as a therapist.

I have also completed extensive mindfulness training over the past 7 years.  Through this training I have become qualified to teach Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) (MiCBT Institute, AU), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) (University of Massachusetts, School of Medicine), Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) (Center for Mindful Eating, NH) and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Training Course (University of San Diego, School of Medicine). These trainings have been highly instrumental in my own personal growth, and in the work that I do with individuals and groups.

MY APPROACH

I work collaboratively with individuals to explore presenting concerns, unpack the causes and conditions reinforcing them, and work through personal and interpersonal blocks that impede on their healing and personal growth.  I draw on the deeper long term values of the individual as a guidepost while we move through therapeutic process.
I draw upon a variety of treatment approaches, including: Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and mindfulness-based interventions.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I offer therapy sessions to individuals 18 years of age and older.  I have a special proficiency in the treatment of chronic stress, anxiety, perfectionism, burnout & chronic pain.

MINDFULNESS COURSES

I run two 8-week mindfulness programs (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program & Mindful Self Compassion Training Course), and two 10-week mindfulness programs (Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course & Mindful Eating Course), along with Full and Half Day Silent Meditation Retreats.  The aim of these courses is to cultivate the capacity to meet our moment to moment experiences with an attitude of non-judgement, curiosity acceptance and kindness.  Mindfulness practice allows us to live life more fully, coming out of autopilot mode and embracing the simple joys of life even when difficulty is present.  It deepens our wisdom and compassion so that we can skillfully respond to our experiences, rather than reacting in ways that often fail to meet our deeper needs.
