Welcome to my therapy practice! I provide individual counselling in West St Paul for residents of Winnipeg and surrounding areas who are suffering from anxiety, low self-esteem, people-pleasing, depression and trauma.
I received my Master of Arts degree from University of Manitoba in 2009 in Psychology. I have earned my Applied Counselling Certificate from the University of Manitoba and joined the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association as a Professional Member in 2020. I am trained and experienced in several therapeutic methods, including EMDR therapy, EMDR 2.0, and IFS therapy (Internal Family Systems). I founded Clear Living Connection in the summer of 2020.
My therapeutic approach is a blend of modern and classic methods tailored uniquely to each client. My most commonly used approaches include EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), EMDR 2.0, Internal Family Systems (IFS therapy), and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) blended with a Person-Centered approach and a strong focus on self-compassion. I've found this combination of approaches to be very effective in carefully exploring core reasons for symptoms, and healing the negative experiences and trauma around it.
Clients see me through either video sessions or in-person and they are often adults who are burnt out because they have held themselves to impossible standards, prioritizing everything and everyone else before their own happiness. This is my passion because I myself used to try so hard and I remember those old feelings of burn out, misery and effort to do a perfect job in all of my roles.
Looking around me, I see so many people who are stuck in the same rut that I was in and I want to shout from the rooftops for them to stop trying so hard and open themselves up to being authentically happy.
This journey has brought me on a mission to help adults develop self-compassion, stay true to their values and joyfully develop more genuine, balanced and satisfying relationships. It is a privilege to discover people’s stories and find out what makes them flourish. I absolutely love my work with my clients!
If you feel like you are stuck in a rut and know inside of you, that you shouldn’t be this exhausted, I would be honoured to help you reconnect to your joy and improve your relationship with yourself and others.
