About Me

Welcome to Still I Rise Counselling, a private therapy practice specializing in an integrative treatment approach to complex, intergenerational, and developmental trauma; and addressing the embodied impacts of shame. My intention is to provide a safe and generative space for you to explore the vast and varied landscapes of your life with an eye for the sacred beauty inherent in all experience. I hold the perspective that everyone has the capacity to access freedom from suffering and live a fulfilling life of possibility. I would be honored to support you on your journey of healing, discovery, and self-remembrance.

Experience

As an integrative and trauma-informed therapist, I draw on years of experience and training in various somatic approaches, mindfulness meditation practice, internal parts work, adult development and developmental trauma theory, and shame resilience to creatively support your unfolding exactly where you are, as you are. My clinical experience has been forged in acute psychiatric settings, including inpatient treatment, partial-hospitalization, and intensive outpatient settings; as well as addictions treatment and private practice since 2018. I have facilitated group therapy and group psychoeducational intensives over many years and have a particular passion for working with groups in both therapeutic and organizational team building capacities.
