Registered Social Worker
I work to support you to feel safer and healthier in your environment, relationships and body. I am rooted in an anti-oppressive framework, that works to understand how your past experiences, may be impacting in the present, and explores the connection between our mind, body, and emotions. By building trust and deeply listening to your unique needs and experiences, I try and support you to meet your goals for therapy. I have worked extensively with children, youth and adults who have experienced complex trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, issues of self-worth, self-harm, and dissociation. As a trauma-informed yoga teacher, and Level 1 trained Sensorimotor psychotherapist, I engage the wisdom of the body and mindfulness based approaches to support healing and shift your experience. I try to support you to understand the physical and somatic elements of experience, and find ways to soothe, calm, and energise the body, and understand its story. As an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Trained therapist I also offer clients an opportunity to take a look at all the parts of self, how these parts of us have developed to protect us, and how to work with our own parts to heal young, wounded or hurt parts of ourselves. This can dramatically change our relationship to one’s self, replacing shame, self-loathing, and assumptions of guilt with compassionate acceptance, leading to a more fulfilling and integrated experience. I hope to support you to build deeper connections with yourself and others, and find ways to communicate in a loving and authentic way. Through collaboration with you, I try and create an environment that feels safe and inclusive. I help explore difficult thoughts and emotions, and offer strategies to feel more confident and in the present moment. I am currently completing the Psychadelic Assisted Therapy Year Long Certification with the Integrative Psychiatry Institute.
