As a Registered Psychotherapist and Betrayal Trauma Specialist, my passion is to assist you in healing from current issues and past wounds. My role is to help you develop effective coping strategies, gain awareness of self and grow your self-worth while fostering self-love in order to have healthier relationships.

With over 20 years in the psychotherapy field, a Master's in Counselling Psychology, and three certifications in trauma therapy, I provide a safe, confidential space for individuals, couples and families to nurture positive communication and personal growth.

Betrayal Trauma Therapy

I specialize in trauma, including PTSD, sexual assault, rape, infidelity, domestic violence, and childhood sexual abuse. Most on this list are components of betrayal trauma.

I am an integrative therapist who uses a variety of modalities in which to support your healing journey. I practice from a person-centered perspective, which means that you are in control. I am your guide or GPS. You are the driver who steers and can accelerate or brake as you need.

If you feel stuck, hurt, betrayed, or confused and are ready for change, let's connect. 

With an Honours Bachelor degree in Neuroscience and Psychology, and as a Registered Psychotherapist Qualifying, I strive to create an environment of safety, calm, and acceptance so you can develop skills and a sense of resilience. 

Whether you have experienced trauma or are experiencing symptoms such as stress, anxiety, depression, or relational difficulties, I can offer empathetic and compassionate support paired with extensive education, training, and supervision to help you reach your goals. Assisting those from a variety of cultures is my passion, including those who are immigrants or refugees. It is an honour to be able to learn from every individual.

It takes courage to work through your challenges and seek support, and it is through that courage, growth and resilience are fostered. If you are ready to take that first step, I warmly invite you to reach out and book your free consultation.
