About Joelle

It’s never easy to take the first steps toward positive change.

I don't miss an opportunity to appreciate the courage and determination I see in my clients.

What you've been through is NOT who you are. The past does not define you. I will work with you at your pace and with great respect for your efforts to leave painful and dissatisfying patterns behind.

Whatever experiences have brought you to this point, and whatever challenges you face, I truly believe in your capacity to grow and will be your ally every step of the way.

If you feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, have unresolved trauma, problems with impulse control, get hijacked by anger, have trouble with intimacy, or want to resolve conflicts and deepen your bond with your partner, I have the skills and experience to help you be in the driver’s seat to create the life you truly want.

My integrative and person-centered approach is influenced by extensive training and ongoing supervision in:

  • Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)
  • Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness & Self Compassion Training
  • Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT)
  • Affective Neuroscience
  • Attachment Theory

Choosing the right therapist is a very important decision, and I want to make sure that you choose the right one for you.

Let’s talk and find out if I might be what you’re looking for.
