Perinatal & Maternal Mental Health
Whether it's infertility, loss, prenatal anxiety, postpartum depression, or overwhelm that you are struggling with, you shouldn't have to go through it alone. The unexpected challenges, changes, and uncertainties that come with embarking on the journey through motherhood can feel isolating. Together, we can work through difficult thoughts and find ways to cope with overpowering emotions. At Moving Mountains, we want to help you feel understood, and will work towards empowering you to be compassionate to yourself and live a life aligned with your values.
Relationships & Life Transitions
Are you struggling to feel connected to your partner? Do you find yourself questioning the relationship? Through self-reflection, exploration and deepening your relationship with yourself, we can gain a better understanding of your wants, needs, and values in a relationship. This may help guide you towards meaningful, authentic relationships - most importantly with yourself.
If you've just experienced a major life transition, such as having a baby or experiencing a loss, you may feel like you don't know where to begin when it comes to navigating your relationship now. We can work on identifying and addressing barriers to communication, understanding your partner and how they give & receive love, and collaborate on steps towards your combined goals.
Body Image & Disordered Eating
If you're feeling consumed by thoughts around food, eating, body image, and self-esteem, these can be heavy to navigate on our own. You may constantly compare yourself to others or find it difficult to feel confident in your body. Maybe you feel like food is the one thing you can control. Through cultivating self-love, acceptance, and compassion, and working towards identifying and challenging difficult thoughts while learning how to appreciate your body, we can move towards body neutrality. You and your body are deserving of acceptance.
My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative, with an emphasis on person-centred care. I want to empower you to identify and advocate for the support that you need. I work with compassion and non-judgment to help deepen your relationship with yourself as well as with others. I emphasize self-compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance-based therapies like acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT). I also incorporate CBT, cognitive behaviour therapy, to help identify and navigate harmful cycles perpetuated by thoughts, emotions, and/or behaviours. I like to work from a holistic perspective, pulling from different therapeutic techniques as needed. I aim to collaborate with clients, as I believe the most effective therapeutic relationships are rooted in trust, open communication, and empathy.
