I specialize in eating disorders/eating difficulties, issues with body image, self esteem, anxiety, and depression in teens and adults.
Many of us struggle with self confidence and self esteem, comparison to others, insecurities, are unhappy with our body/appearance, anxiety, disconnection, and emotional overwhelm or shutdown. 
I would be honoured to help you heal your relationship with your body, food, and connect back to your authentic self.
Counselling will help you to change deeply held thoughts and belief patterns that no longer serve you. You can experience deeper self acceptance, self confidence, feelings of safety, joy, empowerment, and greater meaning and connection in your life and relationships. I come from a holistic and integrated perspective and include both the body and mind in healing.
I specialize in eating difficulties (including restrictive eating, binge eating, emotional eating, dieting, binge-purge behaviour, etc.), body image (dissatisfaction with size, weight, shape), and self esteem. I also focus on: anxiety, depression, conflict, shame/guilt, personal growth, and self-acceptance.

I also offer deep relaxation strategies and calming, embodied awareness practices, including reiki and guided breath work. 

It takes a great deal of courage to begin counselling. Many individuals struggle with body image issues, challenging eating habits, and feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression. I would love to help you through the process of self discovery, understanding your feelings, thoughts, and patterns, and living a more joyful, authentic, and connected life.
I believe that we are all innately directed towards healing - just as the body naturally heals its physical wounds, so does the mind heal the mental and emotional wounds. Through counselling, I will be your safe and compassionate guide and witness, to awaken that ability within yourself.
