My name is Gabriella and first and foremost I am a human. I am here to learn, play, grow and love. I am passionate about mindfulness, self-compassion and the mind-body connection. My mission is to add more beauty and joy to our world.
As a survivor of trauma, I have experienced and moved through the ways in which trauma can interfere with the natural functioning of the nervous system and create a severed sense of belonging.
As a mental health clinician, I have learned what allows us to not only heal and move through trauma, but to use our past pain as a portal to creative awakening.
I created Evans & Co. Counselling so that – via trauma therapy, and particularly EMDR Therapy – I could help individuals move through creative blocks and return to states of imaginative freedom and flow. I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and am certified with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
In addition to my training as a mental health clinician, I am trained as a yoga teacher and meditation guide. My clinical therapy practice is consequently influenced by Eastern thought and a somatic understanding. If you think we could work well together, I look forward to hearing from you and engaging in this life-giving work.
