About me

I founded Life Wise Counselling to support individuals and couples who are ready for change, open to embarking on their healing journey.

The vast majority of us can feel powerless to our problems, stuck in destructive patterns or challenged with negative thoughts that weigh heavy on our shoulders. Trauma shows up as fear based thinking, living in auto-pilot, people pleasing, difficulty setting boundaries, impulsive behavior, insecurity, self-doubt, anxiety & depression, anxious attachment styles, PTSD and more. Healing from our lived experiences is an ever changing path, with ups and downs along the way. Personal development is not passive and requires patience, courage, commitment and connection among other things. Connection is a basic human need, necessary for cultivating growth. However, past wounds can show up in our relationships, making it difficult to reach out to loved ones.

Research shows that a strong therapeutic alliance based on respect is imperative for positive outcomes in therapy. Using a strength based and holistic approach to suit your needs, I’m committed to creating an environment that allows you to explore your story in a way that is empowering and constructive. Our ability to put ourselves first, make productive choices and feel good is deeply affected by our past emotional history. Living a life of health and wellness involves looking inward and rising above our past in a safe space of acceptance.

Counselling will provide you with time for yourself to focus on your mental health and improve your wellbeing. It is an opportunity to explore your innate resiliency, reclaim your mind and body and access your inherent wisdom during times of stress. With the right tools, you have the power to cultivate insight and awareness to fuel your journey in finding acceptance, self-compassion and emotional freedom.

Through conversation, you will gain perspective into your situation and behavior. You will learn to embrace your challenges and recognize triggers as agents for change. You will become accountable for your actions and learn how to respond versus automatically react to your triggers.

Together, we will discuss what real transformation means to you and how we can achieve your goals on a short-term basis.

I draw upon a bio-psycho-social approach as I strongly believe in evidence based practices that integrate the mind-body connection. Using tools from various schools of therapy such as Mindfulness, the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Polyvagal Theory and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) you will discover how to to make more conscious choices, feel confident, and move forward with your life.

I feel truly privileged to not only witness, but walk alongside the journey of so many individuals towards resiliency. I would be honored to journey alongside you as you overcome anxiety & depression, trauma & PTSD, addiction, and/or relational challenges. To ensure that I align with your values and vision for change, I invite you to contact me for a free consultation.
