MOVE BEYOND COPING AND TOWARDS HEALING
COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE IN NORTH BAY
Healing Connections is a small counselling & psychotherapy practice based out of North Bay, Ontario, Canada.
We believe that counselling and therapy are true healing practices and that in order to heal, we need to honour the mind-body connection and consider all areas of our client's lives before creating our treatment plans.
We work from a bio-psycho-social approach and assess our clients’ fulfillment in areas of work or occupation, social engagement, spirituality, primary relationships, and community engagement.
At our core, we believe that all people are capable of healing and change.
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”
GET TO KNOW ME
When I was younger, I had a really good experience with a therapist that changed the direction my life was headed. That experience led to my desire to help others and eventually, after pursuing many other dreams, I signed up for a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Soon after, I completed a Master of Counselling Psychology degree and registered as a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). As an RP(Qualifying) in the North Bay, Ontario area, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients. I have experience and training to support clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, CPTSD, relationship challenges, addiction, anger management, chronic pain, grief, infidelity, and daily or work-related stress.
My lived experience with trauma, led to my passion for helping others with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. I have additional EMDR related training in DeTUR (addictions), ego state and internal family systems (IFS) therapy for complex trauma. As a client of EMDR, I can attest to its powerful effects, and I am grateful to utilize this wonderful modality in my practice. I also love working with couples and am trained in the Gottman Method couples therapy. I specialize in treating affairs, addictions, and trauma in couples. I truly care for all of my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. I look forward to hearing from you and walking with you on your healing journey.
