With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".

I work well with clients who experience difficulties relating to anxiety , depression, and challenges in relationships. These clients would be open to self-exploration and digging deep into the biological, social, and psychological factors that are influencing them and contributing to their symptoms, with the aim of better understanding what is going on for them. Their goals may include developing coping strategies, improving important relationships, and addressing the underlying issues behind their salient challenges. The clients would be willing to challenge their own thinking and behavioural patterns to elicit positive change.

I have supported many people from 5 to 65 years old to overcome areas such as anxiety , depression, parent separation, stress & trauma.
Looking for something a little different to traditional talking therapy? Often it can be hard to find the words to express how we are feeling or what is going on in your life that is getting you down. As a Mental Health Social Worker I use my traditional counselling skills and incorporate my Sensorimotor Art Therapy skills to add deeper meaning and reflection to make sense of the world through art, creativity and play.

We often come to therapy when we are anticipating or experiencing change; endings and new beginnings. I use a mixture of talk and Art therapy to work with people through changes; in identity, relationships, sexuality, health, career and family; if it's a change you're in, or a change you're wanting or needing. I work with the LGBTQIA+ community and our allies, friends and family. Together we can explore the parts of you that come with endings and change; grief and loss, anger, anxiety and depression. In doing this, we can become curious and generate movement towards new-beginnings and new chapters.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
