I use a variety of methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ), transactional analysis (TA), Adlerian therapy, narrative therapy, and feminist therapy to treat my clients and help them overcome their problems.
Everyone faces difficulties in their lives. I believe at the heart of this is our strive to be our true, fully realized selves - both for ourselves and for/around others. As humans, we are hard-wired to adapt to any situation or dilemma we experience - through that adaption we become resilient. That, I believe, is the core of our humanity: authenticity, integrity, and resiliency. My practice at Perspective-Resilience Counselling Services revolves around those three principles.

I draw on cognitive, behavioral, acceptance , mindful, and somatic therapies to help you learn and grow.
Do you feel angry, unheard, on guard, afraid, or hopeless? Are your thoughts and emotions overwhelming? Do you worry about your future or lack energy and motivation? Are you tired of facing the same situations that cause you pain? We can do something different. It’s okay to need help, and it’s okay to talk to someone. You can understand your experience and move forward with acceptance and trust. You can feel a greater sense of self worth, confidence, and control. You can manage your symptoms, connect with your body and mind, and feel better.

I am a clinical psychologist who works with individuals and couples. Some have been struggling for a long time while others have lost their footing in the face of recent life stress. Change and growth happen when individuals feel that they are taken seriously, understood, accepted, and supported. In this context, my clients become more open, aware, and honest about the full range of their thoughts and feelings. Hope and courage grow as they face life's challenges. They learn new, flexible, and effective ways to think and respond, alter unhelpful patterns in relationships, and gain greater self- acceptance and resilience.

I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method for Couples Therapy (Level II), Relational Life Therapy Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), and Transactional Analysis (TA).
The human experience is both wearisome and wondrous. My role is to provide compassion, therapeutic knowledge, keenly observe strengths, and barriers to help you navigate the wearisome so that you can fully enjoy the wondrous. Working with clients, helping them to develop self-compassion, acquire flexibility in their approach to life, and learn robust coping skills is a deeply satisfying part of my work. I’ve observed that couples are wanting more from their relationships, yet we aren’t taught skills which allow us to relate well. I guide couples as they acquire tools which foster better communication and relationship skills.

I approach sessions from a trauma-aware lens & use Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Attachment Theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy, & the Gottman Method.
There are times when life when we struggle to bridge the gap between what we want vs. what we have. Instead of focusing on criticizing & ruminating, let's develop the mindset you need to feel stronger, as well as more loving & accepting towards yourself & others, I want to help you see beyond the struggle, understand your mind & how it works, learn to tackle the tough stuff effectively, & meet your own needs while staying aligned with your values. The longest relationship you will have is the one with yourself. You deserve for it to be a good one.

My warm demeanor and gentle repose enhances clients’ abilities to tune into their natural healing capacities. Twenty years of formal meditation training has shaped my therapeutic viewpoints, and I align with relational frame theory (RFT) and acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ): third wave mindfulness-based behavioural therapies. I also work from a somatic, brain-body perspective, using Brainspotting (BSP) to help clients release deeper held traumas. Principles of hypnotherapy also inform my practice.

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.

I draw on various evidence-based therapy modalities in my practice, including; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Mindfulness Based-Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Attachment-Based Models.
Finding our authentic selves sometimes requires us to let go of what we have been told, what we have been doing, and who we believe we must become. Gently pushing against the norms to embrace ourselves just as we are can be a meaningful, healing journey and one I would be privileged to accompany you on. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe space where clients can feel heard while having room to be curious. I hold gratitude for each opportunity to accompany clients through their individual journey to wellness.

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.
