Description

Our past experiences impact us in ways we may not even realize. Our nervous system jumps in to protect us in ways that it has helped us survive in the past. This often prevents us from operating how we wish to. Working to reconnect the body with the mind to our present, adult self can help resolve this disconnection. I believe that we all deserve to experience connection, empathy, attunement and safety
My approach draws from somatic attachment, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology and eye-movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR). Together we can reconnect the body and the mind.

Summary

I believe therapy is a place for individuals to learn more about themselves, their feelings, experiences, and fears in a way that is safe and empowering. We all have emotional wounds and self-limiting beliefs from our past that need to be addressed and healed in order to move forward. 

My approach is integrative and includes aspects of AEDP, Internal Family Systems, Attachment Theory as well as taking a body-centred approach. 

Attending to the patterns we have developed from past experiences are an important part of the therapeutic process in order to create meaningful change.
