Life with pain or illness can be really frustrating...

If you are one of the brave ones living with chronic pain or illness, you already know how challenging it can be to manage the day to day. Add in extra stressors like finding appropriate work, navigating interpersonal relationships and balancing your own self-care with family obligations and life can easily become overwhelming. This is where I can help.

​Because our conditions live with us, we rarely get a break from them. Disrupted sleep, easily flared emotions, frustration, anger, depression, anxiety, difficulties with relationships, the sense that others don't understand...all of these factors can easily encourage us to take on disempowered views of ourselves. As someone who both lives with and works alongside others with chronic pain, I know how debilitating this can feel.

I am a Somatic Experiencing-informed Counsellor, as well as a Clinical Pilates instructor. Sessions are designed to help you:

  • Make sense of your condition and explore with curiosity and compassion the multiple factors that may contribute to your experience

  • Improve your sense of well-being by building your resources: physically, mentally and emotionally

  • Both advocate for yourself and get the support you need

  • Decrease the grip of pain-induced anxiety, stress, physical discomfort and social isolation by exploring what is truly meaningful to you

  • Help you live, as defined by YOU, your fullest life

Depending on your unique situation and preference, sessions may be held online, in our movement studio, or in office (in person).

If pain is part of your life, it is important to work with it: this is where you have the control.
