I view the counselling space as an opportunity to re-remember what you already know. I come into the space with the belief that we are all born with everything we need. It is through trauma, adversity, oppression, systems of power and various other life-experiences that close the doors to our inner world of knowing. Just as our bodies are able to heal from physical wounds, I believe we are also capable of healing our emotional wounds when we are able to access the innate Self.
Approaches: I will always use a client-centred, trauma-informed & intersectional feminist approach when sharing space with folks. The main modality that I lean into is Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Somatics. As I work in a client-centred way I will also pull tools from: Narrative Therapy, Feminist Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Trauma Therapy, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Therapy & at times utilizing tools from CBT & DBT.
Topics: Trauma, LGBTQIA2S+, Grief & Loss, Mental Health, Wellbeing & Relationships
