I aim to be an unusual therapist. I harness imagination, energy, enthusiasm, poetry, and humour in my effort to understand your story and elevate your voice. Whether you are considering the past, the present, or the future, I believe that therapeutic conversations can expand the options, responses, and actions we have available to us and help us to recognize our opportunity to be active agents in our own lives- or the protagonist of our own story! I get excited about this and do not hold back this excitement as you move closer to your goals.

I believe therapy is built on trust, safety, and mutual respect, and so I bring my real self to the therapeutic relationship in order to meet and discover the ‘self’ you want to become. Together we will explore the physical, emotional, and environmental factors creating friction in your life, and work towards sustainable and meaningful change. This may include learning new skills, processing emotions, and finding meaning in your past and present experiences. Life is full of challenges, and I will accompany you in learning to build resilience in the face of those challenges, without becoming overwhelmed

You can't remember the last time you were able to relax. Your mind is constantly racing with judgmental and negative thoughts about yourself and your life. All you want is to feel happy, but you don't feel good enough. People who should have been safe have hurt you and let you down, leaving you scared to open up and trust. You find yourself crying at the drop of a hat for no explainable reason, which leads you to feel more isolated and alone - disconnected from everyone. You're unsure if therapy can help, but are willing to try.

Accepting New Clients! I have 16 yrs of experience providing sexuality and relationship counselling. I have found the depth of the topics related to relationships and sexuality to be fascinating. These topics are rarely discussed openly or in detail and often referred to in euphemistic terms that further cloud information. Yet, they are such primary and important parts of being human. While relational issues don't constitute your whole life, they can certainly colour your entire life. I use a multidisciplinary, trauma-informed approach to get clients the best results possible. Contact me today for info or to book an appointment.

I have no doubt that you've done your best to figure out your problems in your own head. And as far as you've been able to get with that, maybe you’re still surprised at how automatically you react to certain situations in your life - like at work, or with a partner. You go a bit numb and don’t know what to say or do, or you react more strongly than you’d like and regret it later. Or maybe you often seem to take things harder than others, and have been called "too sensitive". You often feel misunderstood and struggle to understand yourself sometimes.

Sometimes life can seem just too overwhelming. Are you feeling lost, not sure what the right decision is, where to go next? Do you suspect that there might be an undercurrent of issues from your formative years that you have never addressed or explored? Do you feel that they could be influencing your life today? In a non-judgmental, person-centered, warm and safe environment, let’s explore where you came from and where you want to be going. Sometimes you just need to talk things out with an objective professional. Sometimes you need some guidance and suggestions.

Are you a young woman feeling completely overwhelmed by your emotions at times? Are you sick of constantly comparing yourself to others? Have you had enough of feeling "not good enough" for others or yourself? You feel things need to change, you need to move forward, but can't seem to figure out how. This is a great first step. I specialize in working with young women (age 18-35) who are struggling with a variety of concerns. I believe that women experience unique pressures from different sources in life, and this can be difficult to navigate alone. *Currently only daytime appointments are available, no evenings*

I believe that the best decisions are made by you and that it's my job as a therapist to clarify, prepare and support you as you explore what you need. I work from a client centered approach, offering a cultural understanding. I am committed to accompanying you, hearing you and helping you flourish into your best and happiest self. Life is not linear and will throw you curve balls; you may have times when you feel weak or angry; and you won't feel at your best. The next day may feel daunting and exhausting and you feel overwhelmed. You may feel that you're disappointing yourself and others.

I am an experienced counselling therapist and sexual health educator who is passionate about helping people understand, accept, and enjoy their sexuality. I believe that sexuality is a core aspect of our humanity and is therefore just as important to take care of and heal as any other aspect of our being. My expertise is in helping people of all gender and sexual identities experience pleasurable and healthy sexual and romantic relationships. I also offer all-options pregnancy counselling, including pre- and post- abortion support. I am currently offering sessions on Tuesdays between 1:00pm and 8:00pm.

INSIGHT & PRACTICE FOR CHANGE: I believe we all have the inherent ability to live a meaningful, satisfying, and connected life. At some point most people will become aware or begin to feel that they are somehow "off course", that "something needs to change" or that something new is desired. This realization is an opportunity to "adjust course", take stock, and intentionally re-align our lives. Sometimes small shifts can make incredible differences; other times we are called to dig deep. Whether you want to make personal, professional or relationship shifts, by reaching out to me you can trust that the change process has already started.

I specialize in Women's Mental Health and love working with moms. Stress and anxiety are at an all time high and moms are telling me they're exhausted and overwhelmed with the mental load. They've been isolated in navigating fertility challenges, pregnancy, the birth of children and post-partum. They're parenting with few supports and often have kids who are struggling too. They've had to deal with difficult dynamics at work and in their personal lives, are coping with a multitude of losses and are dealing with past or present traumas. Reach out if you can relate and we'll work together to help make life more manageable right now.

I am a Registered Psychologist and love to work with people to clear away distress. We are always learning how to protect ourselves while making connections with others. Sometimes, what worked for us in the past is no longer helpful and we need to adjust. Our mind, heart, and body work together to try to bring healing and balance but it is easy to get stuck. The psychological sciences have made incredible strides into understanding how and why we achieve psychological health and wellness; I synthesize that information to bring practical therapeutic techniques to become healthy and happy again. I am a PaRx Prescriber.

Women's Issues Counsellors

How do you encourage a woman to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual may be suffering, and what effects it has on them, should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can women prepare for therapy?

Women can prepare for therapy by being willing to talk about their past experiences and their private thoughts. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. Between sessions, it can be useful to write down notes about their reaction to a given event or how they felt at a particular time.

How long does therapy for women’s issues often last?

As with any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual and the challenges they face. Therapy types like Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Prolonged exposure therapy (PET), and Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. In some cases, such as for women with eating disorders, residential treatment may be recommended for an individual who is judged to be at high risk of self-harm. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realised.

How can women overcome stigma around specific challenges in order to seek therapy?

Women dealing with domestic abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders, and any other number of troubles may feel a stigma around seeking help. It’s important to remember that these issues are not uncommon and there is no shame in getting help for them. Therapy is confidential, and women can talk about their experiences without fear of judgment. Seeking therapy can be a courageous and liberating act, and an important step toward healing and recovery.
