I want to acknowledge that Guelph is situated on Treaty 3 land that is steeped in rich indigenous history and home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people today. As a white settler I believe I have a responsibility for the stewardship of the land on which I live and work. Please let me acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation from whom this land was unlawfully purchased, The Neutral peoples, and the Anishinabek Peoples on whose traditional territory we are meeting on with a promise to do better.
I welcome all clients, in all bodies, and from all backgrounds. I am 2SLGBTQIA+, BIPOC, Women & Differently Abled affirming. Each year I donate 1% of my net earning to an anti-oppressive focused, non-profit organization.
If you're trying to figure out how to heal from past issues with your self-worth, body image, weight stigma, health, illness, pain, anxiety or relationship with food, I believe you've come to the right place & I currently have weekly availability on Wednesday's and bi-weekly on Monday's. Together we can explore when and where certain feelings started & gently unwind them to slowly build to a more loving & self-accepting existence as you are right now. I have a deep & personal understanding of these issue.
My practice focus is: mindfulness, IFS/parts work, self-compassion, women's work, body issues, anxiety, pain, ED & psychedelics. Within the context spiritual psychotherapy I often start with a grounding with you to help the nervous system get to a place where it feels safe to look at things. From there you share - You decide what you need & I hold space for that. Often we involve the subconscious with various modalities & then end with an oracle card reading of your choice. I welcome all clients, in all bodies, and from all backgrounds. I am LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, Women & Differently Abled affirming. Please realize that it’s not your fault you are feeling the way you are. The truth is we all have been burdened in this world and now you can start to get to know your parts and release those burdens. Reach out for a free consultation.
How I work as a Therapist:
I offer: a deep and somewhat personal understanding of persistent illness/pain/disordered eating & trauma. Also, deep, non-judgmental and reflective listening. I offer virtual nature therapy that I've seen helps incredibly with anxiety & depression. I do psychedelic harm reduction & integration work/ energy, inner-child & inner critic work/ parts & legacy work/ guided imagery & more when needed. If you are needing to look into things like: How to live a purposeful life with pain, healthy relationships, other-hood, gender identity, body image, ED, sexuality, I am here to help you with that & can hold space for you .
Disclaimer: I am here to support you at any time in your psychedelic harm reduction plan & integration needs with psychotherapy. Currently in Canada psychedelics are illegal & I do not offer/source/promote illegal activities. I do advocate for harm reduction, education & plant spirit medicine/ psychedelic integration when needed. When you are ready to reach out you are most welcome to reach out for support from me on your journey of self discovery.
