I love to see people overcome their anxiety. I have a particular passion that if I was to have one super power it would be to change their thinking in this area.

With trauma or ongoing stress, physiological survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

My clients often are looking for ways to better handle the challenges of daily living. They may be feeling these challenges are insurmountable or that they are fundamentally inadequate to be able to cope. They might not feel that they have a good understanding of who they truly are, what it is they want out of life, or what they have to offer others. They might also struggle to draw on the resources around them and make the most of their personal relationships. They may struggle to find the voice inside to reassure them that, as hard as things can feel, it will all be okay.

The counsellors listed here have identified their interest in elder therapy in 3754 or help for 3754 elderly people in therapy. Counsellors who work with elders (for instance, elderly parents, elderly women or even elderly abuse) handle a broad range of issues especially as they relate to caring for the elderly and homes for the elderly in 3754. Elderly depression is a common problem that can be helped by therapy for elderly people. Psychiatrists who work with the elderly are sometimes referred to as 3754 geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in 3754 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
