Need help with trauma, anxiety, stress, chronic pain, or grief?
Hello there! I’m Tracey and I’m super passionate about helping you live a life where you are joyful to get out of bed and live life to the fullest. I’m here to help you connect to your heart-mind-body, create a life of purpose, get relief from the demands of life, and find greater happiness within.
You are in the right place if you are:
- Dissatisfied with your ability to cope with life’s many demands
- Feeling scared and alone in the face of anxiety or depression…and are looking for an alternative or add-on to medication
- Struggling to deal with your child or youth’s ability to handle school, homework or social engagements
- Have experienced trauma, PTSD, or a disconnection from your body
- Need help mending your heart due to grief, loss or bereavement
- Wanting to tune into your body and want to find healing on a kinesthetic level?
- Have tried other talk methods of therapy that didn’t resolve your complaints?
REGISTERED THERAPEUTIC COUNSELLOR
CERTFIED EXPRESSIVE ARTS THERAPIST
CERTIFIEED HEART MATH PRACTITIONER
I work with children, teens and women, helping clients who are suffering from anxiety, stress, trauma/PTSD and loss. We may use the arts in a session, but my therapy sessions also involve talk therapy where you are truly heard and deeply supported. You may not know who to turn to, how to find freedom from your pain, or where to find the answers you seek. Either way, I want to help. My passion is bringing others to a place where they realize they do have the strength to interpret, and resolve life’s challenges, overwhelming demands, and emotional disturbances.
All of the types of counsellling that I use are client-centered – my aim is to give you a ‘safe space’ where you are heard and accepted. Ultimately, the answers to your life’s concerns, fears, depressions and traumas are contained within you. My role is to help you learn to use your intuition – your inner wisdom (if you will) – so you can begin to heal from what’s bothering you. Starting from a strengths-focused perspective, I believe that people already have within them much of what is needed… its my job to help you find it. You are your own expert on yourself – no one knows you better than you do. Collaboratively, I work with you and for you to help you uncover the solutions that will make a difference in your life.
Working with a counsellor that truly listens to you and walks with you on your difficult journey helps to further the development of healing and processing old wounds. We go through the therapeutic process as a team, building a relationship based on trust, mutual purpose, understanding and respect. The goal of my presence is to provide you with an environment that instills calmness and confidence, helping to empower you to reach your highest potential.
When you are heard, you can begin to heal. To get to this point, you (as the client) need to be able to express yourself freely, without judgement. And, without relying on external advice. My role as a therapist is to help you uncover emotions, sensations, habits, mannerisms and beliefs that go unnoticed through life’s journey – whether good or bad. Believe me: we all have them. To heal properly, it’s important to first find these truths about ourselves, so that we can work with releasing those that block our progress. Then, with continual effort, we can begin to live happily, and freely – the way we should.

“It is Tracey’s incredible intuition, ability to listen and empathize with people; her sincere desire to help people realize their greatest potential and her genuine passion for the arts that makes her special. It is without hesitation that I recommend Tracey.”
“I have worked with Tracey, both online and at her office space. I find our focusing and expressive arts sessions to be extremely interesting and they always create surprising insights into areas of my life where I feel stuck and unproductive. Tracey is committed and very supportive. She is intuitive and flexible in whatever form our sessions take, creating it so it really works for me. I highly recommend her gentle approach when you are ready to move forward in your life.”
“I participated in an expressive arts therapy workshop with Tracey and really enjoyed it. I had never experienced this type of therapy before and Tracey led me through the practices with gentleness, understanding and clear guidance. I felt very safe and supported throughout the whole process and would highly recommend her and her services ♥”
What My Clients Are Saying About My Workshops
“I recently had the pleasure of attending Tracey’s Intro to Expressive Arts Workshop, and found the experience to be thoroughly enjoyable. Tracey has a sensitive, fun, and supportive approach to instructing, and I found myself feeling both nurtured and inspired by her presence. The art projects themselves were varied and gave the opportunity to express different parts of myself through different mediums. I enjoyed the sensory experiences of all the different approaches, including the music, movement, art tools, sharing with other women, and the baked treats! I would highly recommend people work with Tracey and know they will feel both inspired and supported by the welcoming environment she provides. I’m looking forward to the next workshop!””
