With this, we will move forward to learn new coping skills, build on your current strengths and take on new challenges that are in alignment with your own values and goals for your future.

As a therapist, I prioritize bringing acceptance , empathy, and a calm energy to my sessions to create a space where clients feel respected and comfortable being authentic.
Maybe you've been thinking about trying therapy for a while, and recently encountered a breaking point in your life or relationship that is pushing you to take this step. Or, maybe you feel you could benefit from a bit of a mental health tune-up, or a safe space to talk some things over. Maybe your situation falls somewhere in between. By collaborating with you, I believe I can help facilitate the healing and growth you are looking for. I strive to incorporate client preferences and feedback to tailor our process to meet the needs of each unique individual or couple that I have the privilege of working with.

It can be hard to step into life the way you want when struggling with painful thoughts, emotions, or experiences. Asking for help takes courage and I work hard to provide a safe and authentic space to support you. I am passionate about working with people who feel hijacked by their thoughts and emotions, and with couples who are finding it difficult to feel securely connected. In therapy we work collaboratively so that you can gain new insight, experience peace, and find creative, workable ways to tackle difficult behavioural, emotional, or interpersonal problems.

I started my practice to create a space that is healing, safe, and accepting to help you become more resilient, empowered, and content. Life is often difficult, confusing, and disappointing, but you are much more than your bad days, bad months or bad years. I believe that healing comes from recognizing your true self, living authentically, and balancing acceptance and change. With consistency and commitment, it is possible to break out of patterns that no longer serve a purpose. I offer a judgment-free space where I aim to support you in living the life you want, with peace and conviction. Your goals for yourself are within reach.

My professional experience includes training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Gottman, and Functional Family Therapy.
Congratulations on taking charge of your life! You are one step closer to getting the help and support that you seek. Asking for help requires courageous vulnerability, and recognizing that you are a "human-being". As humans, we all have limitations in our ability and capacity to handle stress. Asking for help doesn't mean there is something wrong with you, or that you are "broken." rather it may be that you are seeking to make meaningful and lasting change in your life.

I may also integrate aspects of Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
One of my greatest strengths is my empathy. I strive to understand issues from my client’s perspective without judgement. I believe a trusting therapeutic relationship is the foundation for successful therapy. It is within this relationship that clients feel safe to begin examining the various layers of their story and where answers begin to emerge from within. I help clients feel supported in this discovery process and works collaboratively with them in building a new narrative that aligns with their belief systems and values.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches and tools, including (but not limited to) CBT, ACT , narrative therapy, hypnosis, trauma informed therapy, solution focused therapy, couples therapy, family systems, FIT, and group therapy.
In life, we can find ourselves challenged in ways we did not expect or anticipate. Life can become difficult and overwhelming to manage at times. In such moments, it can be helpful to seek support from someone who might help unearth possibilities and support you in finding healthier and adaptive ways to manage and cope. It is my belief that developing a strong, trusting, and collaborative therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone to therapeutic success. Through mutual respect, genuine empathy, and trust, individuals can be seen and heard, and encouraged to create the changes they want in their lives.

I adopt an evidence-based, mind-body approach rooted in acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ) and mindfulness-integrated cognitive behavioural therapy (MICBT).
Are you stressed? Anxious? Are you often caught up in your painful past or worried about the uncertain future? You are reactive and take everything personally. You are irritated and restless. Disconnected and misunderstood. Empty and joyless. Self-criticism is your mantra. Happiness a virtual reality. It's hard to remember what matters to you or who you are. You are stuck. In. Your. Misery. I help people get unstuck. I help people improve their health and well-being, and overcome obstacles that are getting in the way of life. I provide practical tools to help you be present, open up, and do what matters.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Calgary or for a Calgary ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
