“It takes one to stand in the darkness alone, it takes two to let the light shine through.” Dr. Peter Levine.

Adult Counselling

 

I offer a warm, safe space for new mothers and/or adults experiencing challenging thoughts, feelings and behaviors, related to mood, anxiety, depression or trauma.  I provide support to new mothers struggling with post partum, bonding and/or attachment, and feeding issues through a relational process.  New mothers are welcome to bring their infants to the session.

For those interested in a Somatic Approach, “Bringing the Body into Practice, as an orientation, understands the body as a historian of one’s life and the holder of legacies of historical, transgenerational, relational and early attachment, and socially perpetuated traumas” Dr. Lisa Mortimore. By accessing embodied ways of knowing within the safety of a therapeutic relationship, we begin to create new openings and space that can bring new awareness to the stories of our lives. This process fosters our ability to process traumatic experiences, rewrite our story and reclaim our true self, bringing more integration and vitality into the embodied self.

Other offerings include: Sand tray work is an non-directive, expressive, and creative approach that can be used with people of all ages.
