Therapy Nelson

My name is Jenn. I'm a Canadian-trained therapist living in Nelson.

You may have a combination of anxiety, fear, triggered reactions, nightmares and insomnia. Or emotional numbing, social avoidance, fatigue, low energy, dissociation. You want to learn how to regain control of your nervous system, befriend your body and function in the world - to do the things you need and want to do.

With training in Occupational Therapy, Yoga Therapy and Psychotherapy, I’m passionate about journeying with those who long to embrace their depth and to understand why they feel so overwhelmed inside.

My approach is holistic, acknowledging that the human system is made up of different dimensions (physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual) that are dependent on and influence one another.

Since receiving a Masters degree in Canada in 2007, I worked as an Occupational Therapist, Psychotherapist in community mental health, psychiatric units and private practice. I continue to study yoga therapy in order to integrate these practices into my work, including yoga for persistent pain, trauma-informed yoga and yoga psychology. I combine relaxation training and cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-i) for people with trauma and stress-related insomnia, including nightmares. I recently trained in the Trauma Resilience Model and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to seek help to witness the unique messages of your body and mind, and to find healing within, as you move forward on your unique life journey.

You're welcome to contact me for a free call for 15 minutes. You can ask any questions you have and see if we're a good fit.
