"Calm The Chaos"
Welcome ! Thank you for finding the courage and compassion to seek healing for yourself. I am passionate about the mind, body, and spirit approach to healing. I believe that diagnosis and conventional treatment can be useful and helpful pieces of a puzzle, but they simply don't provide the whole picture, because you are a whole person with a need to be treated with a holistic and integrative approach. I have had the privledge of training with Kristen Neff and Christopher Germer in Mindful Self-Compassion Technique. This specialized training has helped deepen my practice with individuals seeking to heal themselves from limiting and at times debilitating self-doubt, often leading to depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. I have had many excellent teachers along the way and have come to understand that the "one size fits all" approach in therapy and mental health can be both frustrating and unhelpful.
As a therapist my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complimentary therapy approaches and techniques, we can unearth long-standing behaviour patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fullfilling and meaningful life. I invite you to come and sit by the fire with a cup of tea or coffee and share with me what it is that you are struggling with, as well as what you hope for in your own life. I look forward to meeting you :)
