Welcome to Elephant Therapy,
Often we come to crossroads in our lives and wonder what our next steps should be. Crisis, urgency and the unexpected nature of life can sometimes be overwhelming or at the very least, confusing. In my practice, I offer a space to talk about what is present for you. A place where we can be curious about your experiences, feelings and insights together. A place where complacency, wondering, confusion, grief, loss or anger can be a shared experience between us, met with empathy and without judgement. While I am not living your experience, I will do my best to understand and provide a container for whatever you may bring to our sessions.
As a Registered Psychotherapist, my main modalities are Relational Psychotherapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I have years of experience in front line community work during which I have worked with clients dealing with the impact of various trauma, including those related to mental health diagnoses, problematic substance use, singular and ongoing trauma, grief and loss, as well as relationships, identity and family issues.
I use a client-driven, sex-positive, harm reduction framework, and invite my clients to do the same.
