Welcome! I’m Michelle, I have dedicated my practice to helping individuals reclaim their lives after experiencing trauma. Armed with a deep-rooted understanding of the pervasive impact of trauma—gained from personal experience—I offer an empathetic approach backed by a rich toolkit of evidence-based therapies. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Deep Brain Reorienting, Mindfulness-Based Therapies, and Psychodynamic approaches, along with Neurofeedback.

I hold a Master’s in Counselling Psychology and a B.A. in Police Studies. Beyond these foundational credentials, I have pursued advanced training as a family and domestic violence mediator. I have personal experience with First Responders- my father was a Police Officer for 32 years, and my husband is a Sergent with a local Police Service. So, I understand the nuances of the policing culture. Previously, I was employed as a Probation and Parole Officer. Professionally, I have helped numerous Officers heal through their experiences and move towards becoming their best self. If you are overwhelmed by life’s challenging moments, I am committed to supporting your journey toward resilience and self-recovery, I offer a free consultation, so please reach out now. I’d be honoured to support you along your journey.
