It's natural for us to seek safety, security and stability; however, there are often obstacles in our way that prevent us from achieving the comfort, confidence, and simplicity we desire.  

Hi.  I'm Fiona, a Registered Clinical Counsellor who specializes in chronic stress and trauma.

 

I believe that healing happens in safe relationships, and my goal is to facilitate the repair of experiential wounds in a safe environment, largely through the lens of somatic, attachment, mindfulness and cognitive-based frameworks.   

 

While the scope of my work is diverse, I typically see people who are looking to reconcile adverse childhood events; maternal health challenges including infertility, endometriosis, perinatal mood disorders, or the loss of a child; motor vehicle accidents; and relational/occupational/academic stress and trauma. The markings of these wounds may appear as depression and anxiety, grief, suicidal ideation or self-harm, difficulty in relationships, emotional dysregulation, and substance abuse, among others. 

Perhaps you are ready and willing to make meaningful and lasting changes in your life, renew your sense of purpose in the world, or maybe you're simply looking for a deeper connection to self, others, and the community.  Either way, you've come to the right place.
