I work in a way that is gentle, compassionate, collaborative, supportive, and empowering. Sessions with me involve getting in touch with what’s important in your life, and identifying what keeps you stuck and prevents you from living the kind of life you want.
In our work together we will focus on these two things: 1. exploring what gives your life meaning and richness; and 2. learning how to relate to thoughts and feelings in a different and more helpful way. We will use mindfulness-based tools to handle thoughts and feelings more effectively, so that you no longer get overwhelmed by them, or run away or avoid them. We will practice these skills in our sessions together, so be prepared for a combination of talking and practicing! This, in turn, will allow you the freedom to do what matters even when painful thoughts and feelings show up.

With mindfulness-based therapy, you can begin to experience the fullness of life without getting stuck in destructive patterns, or trapped in emotional turmoil. You can move towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life; the life that you really want!
Counselling sessions with me tend to be more experiential in nature, meaning in addition to talking we will also be practicing mindfulness techniques right in the session!
 If you would like even more practice, you have the option of longer, 1.5 hour sessions that allow for extra time practicing particular yoga, meditation and/or other mindfulness techniques that augment our therapy work (for example; practices to target anxiety, sleep difficulties, fatigue, mood regulation, etc.)
