Supportive Therapy for Women and the Transitions in Their Lives

I am so honoured to bear witness for you as you take time for yourself. I know how hard it is to manage everything, let alone when a new baby comes or a major change happens in your life. So, i’d like to meet your needs. As we work together, we put a plan in place and work on goals that help you get there. Our time together can be anywhere from 1 to 6 sessions or more as needed – it is important to me that you get the support you are looking for! I believe you are the expert in your life, and I follow your lead in the session. I am hear (spelling intentional) to offer you support and guidance during the session, as well as hold space for you in what you need to share.

One of the best indicators that tell you if therapy is helping is if you feel a rapport and connection with your therapist. Trust is an imperative part of the process, and i know how vulnerable it is to entrust ourselves in someone. With that in mind, i work from a client-centred and holistic place. Besides this crucial part of building a therapeutic alliance together, i have also learned several styles of therapy that can be very helpful:

Feminist Therapy
Narrative Therapy
Mindfulness Meditation
Attachment-based (Neufeld Institute)
Emotion-Focused Therapy
Somatic-based Therapy
Expressive Arts Therapy
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Strength-Based and Solution-Focused

I currently provide individual therapy sessions to women, and support couples who are grieving the loss of a child. I don’t just work with mothers – I can support you in a breadth of areas too.
