"Being a 'good kid' often meant being 'mature'. We were often praised for not having big feelings, not making messes, not making noise. Thing is...kids really need to have big feelings, make messes, and make noise. 'Good kids' can often grow into anxious adults."
-Dr. Glenn Doyle
Feeling anxious due to circumstances as well as for no reason at all. Just an undercurrent of constantly feeling on edge.
Easily overwhelmed, even by simple tasks. Responding to overwhelm in fight/flight/freeze.
Going through the motions, feeling rudderless, not feeling connected to your life, dreams, or soul purpose.
Trying to do everything for everyone while living up to perfectionistic standards leads to moderate to severe burn-out.
Either you need a day or two in bed resting; or you develop physical symptoms requiring more time and attention.
Insecurities with career and relationships; never feeling good enough.
Constantly feeling like a victim to your life's circumstances.
Fear of not being able to keep all plates spinning, and others seeing you fail.
Fear of not being good enough.
It's a "yes-and" not an "all-or-nothing".
Your subconscious needs the update.
You believe you're worthy & lovable, even with boundaries.
See the journey to your goals as an irregular spiral and failure as feedback.
You enjoy the process and place less emphasis on outcome.
Less anxiety-inducing, more fun and flowy, and energizing.
You know you CAN make boundaries, and you DO. You hold healthy boundaries and have a deep knowing and trust that you're still lovable, worthy, AND you inspire others to do the same.
You give yourself more than just two options: all-or-nothing.
See success in nuanced ways that make you more resilient, adaptable, and dynamic.
Instead of becoming overwhelmed by other's and your own emotions, you learn how to trust yourself and make safe boundaries around them.
Your dynamic, playful and you adopt an optimalist mindset.
Your confidence grows at work and in relationships. You feel more secure within yourself. You trust yourself.
Prioritize your self-care, personal development, goals and dreams; this actually benefits others and inspires them to do the same.
I was trained as a coach in Positive Psychology, and as a hypnotherapist with Marisa Peer in her unique Rapid Transformational Therapy process.
I am trauma informed; meaning, I have studied the nervous system and effects of trauma with Irene Lyon, Kathy Kain, and Peter Levine.
I approach sessions with an attitude of collaboration as RTT is a tool for healing based on empowerment.
I am not certified as a clinical trauma professional, or counsellor, or somatic experiencing practitioner. If you are experiencing PTSD, or have a score of 2 or more on ACEs, I have wonderful referrals to recommend for therapists that do have those credentials; please email me for more information.

I want to acknowledge and honour the indigenous lands where I work, play, create, and live, the traditional land referred to as Treaty 6 Territory encompassing the traditional territories of numerous First Nations, including the Cree and homeland of the Métis Nation. I pay respect to the Indigenous peoples who lived and continue to live in this territory and whose culture, practices and spirituality are tied to this land. I acknowledge our settler ancestry and the colonization that created oppression, suffering, and hardship for Indigenous Peoples for many generations.
As a white, heterosexual woman, I am committed to educating myself and investing in education about racial, systemic, discriminatory and social justice issues.
I also acknowledge this work is never complete. It is a lifelong journey of unlearning unconscious biases.
