Since 2008, Yzobela (she/her) has worked as a counsellor in the fields of reproductive and maternal health, and draws on her own lived experience of the challenges of becoming a parent. She has extensive training and experience in working with issues related to pregnancy, infertility, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, and postpartum anxiety, OCD, and other perinatal mood disorders.
Whether you are dealing with overwhelm, grief, trauma, relationship issues, or unhelpful thoughts or behaviours, therapy is an opportunity to carve out a space where you are the priority, where your feelings and experiences take centre stage, and where all your attention can be focused on your growth, healing and transformation.
As a mother of three, she understand the uniqueness of each family’s situation and that there is no “one size fits all” solution. In addressing parenting challenges, she works with individuals from an attachment-based perspective that respects the needs of all members of the family, and that prioritizes strong relationships as the foundation of meaningful change.
Yzobela is trained in EMDR trauma therapy; ACT for anxiety, perfectionism, and OCD; IFS and relational/psychodynamic approaches. Her background in feminist counselling and social justice work means that we may also explore how your own experiences and behaviours are influenced by the social systems that we exist in, in order for you to thrive in your environment. Through this process of deepening awareness and self-compassion, you can discover how to soothe and heal yourself. Yzobela is committed to inclusion, equity, social justice, and supporting the rights of LGBTQII2A, Black, Indigenous, and People of colour communities.
