Counselling is a type of therapeutic intervention that involves a trained professional, often referred to as a counselor or therapist, who provides guidance, support, and non-judgmental listening to individuals or groups who are facing challenges or experiencing emotional distress. The goal of counselling is to help clients gain insight, develop coping skills, and make positive changes in their lives.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an internationally
approved , evidence based treatment for all kinds of psychological trauma arising from accidents, abuse, assaults, natural disasters, and bereavements, or any traumatic experience that happened in childhood or at any time during your life.


EMDR involves talking and bilateral stimulation, typically using eye movements or
tappers. The aim is to reduce distress and negative beliefs associated with past
overwhelming or traumatic experiences that are having a significant impact on our
mental health. EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the
symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.
EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. Once the trauma induced block is removed by EMDR, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR training sessions, clinicians help clients activate the natural healing processes of the mind.

If you are feeling chronically unsettled, reactive, depressed or anxious this could be the treatment for you. It’s time to put your nervous system into a state of calm!

EMDR Qualified Practitioner


I have an abundance of respect for people that come to counseling because I understand how vulnerable and strange it can feel. It takes a huge amount of courage to heal, and to work through issues that are uncomfortable, especially with people you don’t know at first. I became a counsellor and social worker because I have experienced my own trauma and I was fortunate enough to have some amazing counsellors to help me heal. This motivated me to become an EMDR trauma therapist. It would be my honour to support you in your healing journey.


Your voice in our counseling sessions will be respected and heard. I work hard to develop a trusting relationship with you because I believe emotional safety for you is truly vital for your healing process. My goal is to create a space for you to feel truly safe to be your authentic self. Feel it to
Heal it!


I have extensive experience working with complex trauma and I am an EMDR qualified practitioner. I am also certified in dialectical behavior therapy. If you prefer solution focused talk therapy, we can do that too! For couples sessions my approach is to help create connection and safety between partners while building a foundation of solid communication skills.

Since a young age, I always knew I wanted to help people. As I grew up and went through my own hardships, the field of counselling became more intriguing every day. Learning about the brain was something I was drawn to since high school, as it plays a critical role in human life and mental health. I have been in the field of mental health and counselling for about 7+ years and primarily work with children, youth, and young adults.

It takes a lot of courage to start counselling and by providing a safe, open, and stable place to start this journey, is an imperative part of my practice. Another focus of mine is to ensure support, guidance, and empowerment to the clients I work with. Being able to work alongside clients and watch their progress/growth, is such a rewarding experience. I believe that it is important for a counselor to respect the client’s autonomy and to work collaboratively with them, throughout the counselling journey.

During the therapeutic process, showing compassion, empathy, honesty, active listening, flexibility and a judgement free zone, could guide a deeper connection and conversation to be had. I strongly feel by meeting the clients where there at, finding out there needs, and adjusting accordingly, can improve the overall outcome of counselling.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Nature-Based Therapy (Ecotherapy).
