Anxiety and Depression Counselling. Do you feel anxious, or worry about everything and wonder why you can’t relax? Maybe you're filled with dread and unsure why. It could be your mind won’t turn off and you can't get a decent night’s sleep. Its hard to maintain relationships if you're anxious, angry or exhausted. Maybe you're feeling hopeless and don't know where to go or what to do. You're confused about your emotions and how to cope with them. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space where you can express your feelings.

Hello! I have a passion for working with emotional intensity, trauma, dissociation, and addiction. I'm also always sensitive to gender and sexuality, and my goal is to help clients establish trust in themselves and in the therapeutic relationship. Therapy is a collaborative process, so we set goals together - whether it's maintenance, getting unstuck, or acceptance, the goals start with trust, common ground, and an understanding that my approach is always nonjudgemental.

I combine this approach with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and, where appropriate, clinical hypnotherapy .
Hair pulling and skin picking can be very challenging to manage independently - they are highly complex behaviours. Often these Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs) result in shame and guilt. They can be isolating and worrisome. You may feel alone, but you are not. I specialize in treating BFRBs. I also regularly work with clients who have anxiety, obsessions and compulsions (OCD), impulsivity, and individuals who lack confidence (work, studies, relationships). As a Clinical Psychologist (22 years), my approach will help you to experience positive change in the short-term, and learn how to sustain this change in the long-term.

Sometimes, the more you try to hold it together on the outside, the more you fall apart on the inside. If you're feeling anxious, depressed, devastated, confused and overwhelmed by daily responsibilities, life transitions, relationships, grief or trauma, you're probably striving to get back on your feet. It happens to all of us and even the strongest can benefit from taking time to explore (often hidden or forgotten) inner resources. It's not a sign of weakness to seek support, but of wisdom: when what used to work no longer does, it's time to explore alternative options.

My style of therapy is collaborative. I believe that everyone has a unique story and that although I have a lot of theoretical knowledge, you are the best source of knowledge about yourself. We will work together to understand your past and create a present and future around your determined priorities and goals. I view everyone as having a unique path for growth and it is my privilege to be included in discovering that path. I practice a non-judgemental attitude toward the past, believing that the past is part of each of us, but the present is where the work happens.

I primarily use IFS (internal family systems), EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing), and somatic therapies to help clients heal from and cope more effectively with difficulties having to do with mood disorders, eating disorders, ADHD, addiction, sexual abuse, complex trauma (i.e. repeated painful experiences of betrayal, abandonment, or boundary violations); grief, disrupted attachment in early childhood, as well as experiences of discrimination, exclusion, or shaming on the basis of sexuality, sexual orientation, cultural identity, or anything else that unjustly marks an individual as inferior.

I have been helping men and women make changes in their lives for the past twenty-six years. The people I work with are often dealing with anger, aggression, depression, anxiety, trauma and different forms of acting out (e.g., gambling, addictions, etc.). I provide a safe space to explore what the problem might be and different strategies for resolving problems. Many of my clients are survivors of childhood trauma and are dealing with abuse in their adult lives. I have significant experience working in a cross-cultural context, particularly with First Nations people, Lesbian women and gay men.

You are not alone. At REACH we build real connections with real people walking through our door. Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing-especially the humor part-and combined together, they create a healing force! We know that sometimes, life is just hard. It can come out of nowhere, but know that counselling helps during the tough times. It helps us endure when we don’t think we can, helps us recover from what we’ve survived, teaches us how to gain insight about who we are and find our way back to "our normal" when we feel lost and alone. We are here for you.

I believe we all have internal strengths and resources to work through life's challenges. Sometimes we lose sight of these strengths, sometimes there are gaps in our skills set, or perhaps there are blind spots in how we view a problem situation. My role is to help clients explore, discover and understand themselves and to help clients learn new skills and strategies to address the presenting concern.

Hypnotherapy Counsellors

How does hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy works by using guided hypnosis to help you reach a state of focus and concentration through mental imagery and soothing verbal repetition. The state is somewhat like being absorbed in a book, a movie, or your own thoughts. You are not under a therapist’s “control,” but they can help you relax and turn your attention inward to discover the resources to achieve behavior change or better manage psychological concerns. Therapy sessions may involve guiding you through recognizing a problem, releasing problematic thoughts about it, and considering and accepting more productive alternatives before returning to normal awareness. Hypnotherapy is typically used by a therapist along with traditional forms of talk therapy. Eventually, your therapist can help you learn hypnotherapy techniques yourself so you can establish a stronger sense of control on your own in stressful or challenging moments.

Is hypnotherapy the same as hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy, which is sometimes called hypnotic suggestion, is a therapeutic technique in which a therapist uses hypnosis to help patients. It is not the kind of hypnosis portrayed in stage shows, or in movies or on television. You will not be unconscious or asleep during hypnotherapy, you will not lose control of yourself, your thoughts, or your free will, and you will be able to fully recall your experience. And while you will hear your therapist’s suggestions, it is always up to you to decide whether to act on them. Hypnosis by a trained mental-health professional is not a form of mind control, which is impossible to achieve anyway.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

The most common challenge of hypnotherapy is that as many as one in four people cannot be hypnotized. Brain imaging has confirmed differences in patterns of brain connectivity between those who respond to hypnotism and those who do not. Other people who could potentially be hypnotized may not respond to the technique because of their skepticism or resistance to entering a hypnotic state. If a therapist’s “post-hypnotic suggestion” is effective, it’s because they are suggesting something you want to achieve.

Does hypnotherapy work?

Through hypnotherapy, you can achieve changes that are real and sustainable. Like other talk therapy techniques, when hypnotherapy succeeds, it’s a case of mind over matter. Effective hypnotherapy involves self-healing because you access resources you need to change inside of yourself and learn how to tap into them whenever you need. Hypnotherapy has been shown to be an effective therapy for anxiety, phobias, stress, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, sexual dysfunction, and undesirable behaviors like smoking. It can be used to help improve sleep or to address relationship challenges, and to aid with pain management, digestive disorders, skin conditions, and the gastrointestinal side effects of pregnancy or chemotherapy.
