"My child is defiant!" Is this something you often say when your child is not listening? It can be hard to remember that children can feel big emotions that are confusing for them. Sometimes, communicating can become so difficult that children resort to yelling, hitting, hurting themselves or others, or getting into trouble at school – all in an effort to try and talk to us.

"My child is defiant!" Is this something you often say when your child is not listening? It can be hard to remember that children can feel big emotions that are confusing for them. Sometimes, communicating can become so difficult that children resort to yelling, hitting, hurting themselves or others, or getting into trouble at school – all in an effort to try and talk to us. Once you tie in any difficulties you are having with your partner, and – just like that – your life becomes even more stressful. Parenting is hard as is, and sometimes relationships can bear the brunt of what is going on. If you and your partner want to work on your communication with each other, don’t hesitate to reach out.

I work from a trauma-informed lens, which means that I create a safe space for my clients and that I can help you find ways to communicate what your story is. With the use of approaches like narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy and attachment-based therapy, I will help you understand your child or your partner, and the way they communicate.

Bowen Therapy helps the body remember how to heal itself. The gentle yet powerful Bowen moves send neurological impulses to the brain resulting in immediate responses of muscle relaxation and pain reduction. Bowen is effective and safe for people of all ages.

A Bowen treatment will last 45 minutes to 1 hour. Most of the work can be done through light clothing. There are pauses between the moves. The purpose of the pauses is to allow your body to respond and make its own adjustments.

Clients may experience pain relief after just one session. Depending on the issues two or three treatments may be enough to achieve long-lasting relief.

The session is very relaxing and may help with issues, such as:

- Headaches / Migraines - sports /accident injuries
- Digestive problems - knee/feet problems
- Back/neck/shoulder - arthritis
- Respiratory issues - Asthma/Hay fever
- Groin Pain - Sciatica


Osteopathy


Physiotherapy

Prior to graduating with a Masters in Osteopathic Manual Sciences from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, I earned a degree in Theatre Design (1994) and a diploma in Costume Studies (2002). For over 20 years I worked in theaters across Canada, before embarking on a new career path.

I have experience training as a competitive swimmer, runner, and a triathlete. I have also trained in Crossfit and for several years had a daily Ashtanga yoga practice. Today, I continue to swim and run, and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle.

As a lifelong athlete, I am familiar with the effects of training on the body, and the limitations of traditional medical approaches in addressing physical pain and the complexities of injury and recovery. I found my way to Osteopathy after traditional modalities failed to meet my needs. As a patient, I found the practice of Osteopathy beneficial, bringing relief to my pain, and allowing me to return to my training. As a practitioner, my love for working with people, combined with my desire to help patients return to a functional quality of life, changed my path from the Arts to the Sciences.

Osteopathic Manual Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of injury and chronic pain, as well as a wide range of other health problems. I use my knowledge of anatomy to effectively treat my patients as individuals in a safe, accepting and secure setting.

If you would like to know more about how Osteopathy can benefit you, feel free to book an initial intake appointment. Osteopathic treatments can be billed to most extended health care plans.

Hi there! My name is Alyssa. I am a Registered Social Worker who specializes in working with folks who struggle with big emotions (like anger, sadness, anxiety, and/or shame), consequential ways of coping (for example, self-harm, substance use, disordered eating, overspending, etc.), relationship problems (conflict, communication, trust, self-esteem, etc.), & sexuality (exploring identity, intimacy, experiences of judgment and oppression, etc.).

My primary goal is to identify what concrete changes you would like to see in your life and create targets to work on throughout our time together. I approach therapy like a road trip that we are taking together. You are in the driver’s seat. You are the expert in your own life. Though, sometimes I may offer directions or change the music (so to speak).

I incorporate a variety of therapeutic interventions to assist individuals with their difficulties, primarily; Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

A bit about me personally- I identify as a queer femme (pronouns she/they) and a mental health consumer (meaning someone who has struggled with mental illness). I am sex, kink, and body positive. These are important parts of me that guide how I work. However, I recognize that no two experiences are the same. I do my best to be an ally for others and work towards being anti-racist and anti-ableist.

I would be honoured to hold space for you and go on this “road trip” together. If you have any questions about my practice, please feel free to get in touch!

In-person, telephone & online video counselling is available for adults (18+). Sliding scale pricing is offered.
