"The wound is the place where the light enters you" - Rumi
Does your life look great from the outside and yet you are struggling to find inner peace and meaning? Do you feel stuck or feel like you are experiencing overwhelm from a history of losses or difficult, traumatic events? Do you suffer from complex PTSD or PTSD, depression, anxiety, and/or addictions including problematic eating patterns as a result?
With over 20 years in community teaching and therapy experience, I am able to help online throughout Ontario on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and in person in Guelph, Ontario on Mondays. Healing, transformation, and lasting wellness are possible when you reach out to me for support. In session, you will be listened to, validated, and empowered to learn to use evidence-based strategies that will help you to achieve peace and a sense of purpose.
Therapy can give you a sense of security in the present moment, using techniques for grounding and being fully present that you can learn to apply when you need them most, and also on a regular basis. From this new sense of security you may want to explore underlying wounds and traumas in order to gain acceptance of realities that cannot be changed and a new, less triggered perspective on past events. You then can be unburdened from the past and more easily learn new skills to cope with with present and future situations with a sense of energy and freedom from no longer useful habits and patterns. You will be fully supported to make the small, steady lifestyle and relationship changes you want to make, and you can gain confidence in your ablity to meet challenges assuredly and develop increased resilience.
You are welcome at my practice regardless of your race, culture, gender, sexual preferences, and/or disabilities/abilities. I strive to honour difference and celebrate everyone's unique qualities.
