My ideal client is a child or youth with significant anxiety issues. They need a better understanding of what is going on in their heads and in their bodies. They want to feel less distress, and to be able to do the things that their anxiety is preventing them from doing.

Are you having difficulty concentrating and controlling feelings of worry? Are you feeling restless, wound up, or on-edge? Do you get tired easily, yet feel guilty that you haven’t accomplished enough? Perhaps struggling with sleep due to overthinking about every possible worst-case scenario? What if I told you it is possible to make changes to reduce stress and take better control of your life? To no longer feel the need to please everyone or be perfect. Do you want to be able to live up to your full potential and thrive rather than feeling like you are simply surviving? My job is to help clients do just that!

Do you feel exhausted all of the time? Overwhelmed with no time for you? Trouble sleeping? Not feeling like yourself? Are you feeling sad but you don’t know why? Tired of going through the motions? Are you irritable? Do you experience conflict or lack of closeness in your relationship? Maybe your arguments go on and on without getting resolved, leaving you feeling lonely and further apart. You feel hurt, or a sense of numbness about your relationship. Do you wonder if you’ll ever have a fulfilling relationship? You’ve had enough troubled relationships. You’re tired of hurting and struggling.

Hello! I'm glad you stopped by, because I know that seeking out help during difficult times can be intimidating.

My goal is to provide a warm environment where we can work together on your goals.

Having been well acquainted with the weight and pain of toxic shame myself, as well as having experienced this weight being lifted, I have a passion for helping others go through this shift too, in order to feel freer to share their authentic self with the people they hold most dear. I also have a passion for practicing and teaching mindfulness. Applying mindfulness to the many areas of my own life, including work, parenting, communication, and relationships with both myself and others, to name a few, has been life changing and has allowed me to more frequently experience life in the moment.

I work using an integrative approach, focusing on an acceptance and commitment model to help strengthen psychological flexibility, and a mind body connection.
Seeking therapy can be scary, daunting, and even promote anxiety in itself! Facing our unknown or dark corners is hard, however, together I believe we can ease the journey. I offer a warm, nonjudgemental space, a compassionate and understanding ear, where together we can open possibilities to a more meaningful life. Whether it's personal growth including developmental/transitional stages, anxiety, depression, trauma, or relationship issues, together we can find and bring about meaningful change.

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.

 I firmly believe in creating a space that shows acceptance and positive regard for everyone.
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.

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.

Accessing therapy is an act of courage and an avenue for the improvements in your mental health you seek.
Life can be unexpected and hard. Just as we experience physical injury, we can also experience life circumstances that impact our mental health. On-going stress, past experiences, or challenging situations (e.g. pandemic, loss, increasing job demands, isolation, ect.), can have an enormous impact on our well-being, causing both emotional and physical distress. Using a practical and evidence-based approach, I work with clients to effectively reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, or trauma; to navigate challenging experiences, and promote lasting and desired change in health and life.

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.

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 Carstairs or for a Carstairs 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.
