Building Strong Awareness Body-Mind-Soul-Life and Integration through Attunement for Safe Discovery, Improvement, and Healing.
Welcome! I am a Registered Psychologist and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Practitioner with an integrative, somatic-focused, client centred and collaborative approach. I work with a client to improve awareness, self-efficacy and empowerment; develop mindful, self-regulation strategies; unearth patterns of behaviour, responding, and outcome; move through all phase of life changes; process traumas, including complex trauma; work toward healthy attachment; investigate and develop social skills and social capital; and redefine the quest for self-esteem in order to cultivate true self-respect and self-worth as well as a deep and enduring curiosity for one's own personal journey and the journeys of others. The therapeutic relationship works to heal, benefit, and shape the whole person.
The therapeutic environment is one of attunement for safe discovery, healing, and hope; through the therapeutic alliance, we will build awareness, process wounding, and promote integration.
As a Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Practitioner, I focus on mind-body-spirit holism connecting traditional therapy with communication from the whole body. Our everyday lived experiences are organized through sensation, movement, emotions, behaviour, and thoughts; difficult, overwhelming, or traumatic events impact this organization and learning, affecting our mental wellness. SP gently explores the way in which life events, learning, habits, and core beliefs continue to impact our relationship with the self and our relationships with others; SP integrates the various functioning parts of our experiences through the wisdom of the body, experientially, so that holistic functioning improves and becomes healthy, helpful, and appropriately adaptive, improving health, self-concept, and relationships.
In the interest of mind-body-spirit holism, I provide both faith-based or non-faith based counselling and therapy. We include your spirituality, whatever that means for you, if and as it is helpful for you. I identify as a cis-gender female with a Christian affiliation. That doesn't mean you have to. All/any/no faith is welcome. I serve 18+ at any place on the gender or sexual orientation spectrums, respectively.
