There are a multitude of reasons why we might seek out external supports beyond our inner circles. We might experience traumatic events, loss, conflict, or other crisis that can impact us significantly and create difficulties in functioning within our daily lives, influence our moods, or relationships and it can helpful to look for psychotherapy provided by clinical counsellors. I provide a trauma informed care approach while practicing within a bias free lens, and being non-judgemental. All therapy will be collaborative and encourages the concept that the client is the expert in their story.

Everyone struggles with certain things at different times in their lives. Mental wellness is a journey, not a destination and we are all at different points along the path. Sometimes, we need help guiding our steps and knowing how best to keep going. My ideal client may be struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma or personality disorders. Generally, they realize that things in their life are just not working and they want to learn new ways of behaving, thinking and relating to themselves and others to make lasting changes. My practice with clients is collaborative and supportive.

Has anxiety and depression become amplified for you with issues from the past resurfacing? Maybe you have been to counselling before but would like to try a more holistic approach; one that will teach you the tools needed to overcome feelings of sadness, dread and uncertainty? Often times, experiences buried from childhood and the past resurface as adults which can greatly affect the way we feel and our sense of purpose in the world. It isn’t until things get so uncomfortable, that we feel the only option available is to make a change. This isn’t always easy but reaching out for support, is the first and most important step.

A Holistic Approach to Therapy. New Clients Welcome! Take a moment, 30 seconds will do. Breathe in slowly, hold it there for a second, slowly let your breath out. Repeat if you wish. Imagine being able to quiet the mind of the past, present and future echoes. Perhaps these thoughts have been causing you distress in your life. Becoming vulnerable to these thoughts can cause additional hardships, and becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable is difficult. However, the good news is that you already possess the skills needed to address these issues. I will help you to uncover and practice these skills for clarity.

As human beings, we strive to have healthy connections with others and ourselves. Yet sometimes those connections get lost, fuzzy or disjointed along the way. Secure attachments are a basic human need. I have more than 9 years of experience working in the US and Canada as a Masters-level counsellor. I've worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings. These experiences have given me a diverse perspective into what we face as people who are perfectly imperfect. With your permission, I will gladly walk with you on the path to reconnection and self-discovery.

Would you like to feel motivated by life? Cultivate genuine, loving relationships? Feel comfortable in your skin, regardless of what life throws your way? Well you’re certainly not alone! Connection, self-esteem, and self-actualization have all been identified as human needs—essential to our mental health and well-being. Unfortunately, certain emotional, behavioural, or relational patterns can act as barriers to these needs, quelling our personal growth, and leaving us confined to oppressive cycles of anxiety and distress. Relate to any or all of the above? I think we all can—and perhaps I can help.

Bipolar Disorder Counsellors

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
