Biography

In my work with clients, I offer a compassionate and non-judgemental space to explore and understand how past experiences and relationships may be shaping current feelings, behaviour and patterns that feel stuck. I feel passionate about working with a client towards connecting with their real self. Trauma, negative life experiences and problematic early relationships all contribute to our real selves sometimes going "into hiding". The real self holds the key to creativity, an ability to connect, giving and receiving love, feeling safe within oneself and with others as well as to cope effectively with life challenges. I work primarily from a trauma-informed psychodynamic and psychoanalytic perspective, drawing from attachment theory and neurobiology. I integrate other modalities such as mindfulness-based approaches depending on individual client needs.
