TRAUMA THERAPY IN DOWNTOWN KINGSTON
Compassion, Healing, Growth
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
If you've faced challenges in your life, you've also found ways to cope, adapt, and get through. But with time, these coping strategies can begin to hold you back. Things like avoidance, numbing, dissociation, perfectionism, self-criticism, and constant worry can make day-to-day life exhausting. And struggles such as low self-esteem, PTSD, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues can make it seem like the life you want is out of reach.
Therapy can be a powerful agent of healing and change when we work together to increase your self-awareness, insight, and self-compassion. When you understand yourself and your history more fully and start to direct patience and kindness inwards, healing naturally follows and lifestyle changes become easier to carry out.
WHAT I OFFER
I use a blend of Relational Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems & Ego State Therapy (aka "parts work"), EMDR, and attachment theory to help you cultivate positive internal changes in how you feel toward (and ultimately how you treat) yourself and others. This is long-term work that seeks to make a deep and lasting impact on your life.
I have several years of experience working with adults (18+) who've experienced trauma, especially childhood abuse and neglect. I've also worked in post-secondary settings, helping students overcome the unique challenges they face. In addition, I have years of experience supporting queer and trans folks through issues such as coming out, transitioning, self-acceptance, and resiliency-building.
FEES & POLICIES
I charge $140 for a 50 minute appointment, and I accept payment by e-transfer at the beginning of each appointment.
I provide receipts which you can submit to your insurance provider if they cover Registered Psychotherapists. I recommend checking with your provider in advance.
I ask for at least 24 hours’ notice of cancellations, otherwise I charge the regular appointment fee.
