Hello there! I am currently a Masters level MA in Counselling Psychology practicum student who is qualified to practice onsite at the Psynergy Centre under the clinical supervision of Trenton Akers. My personal philosophy is grounded in the understanding that life is a journey filled with its own unique challenges and triumphs. Healing often involves untangling layers of pain accumulated over time and this can be a difficult process. My mission is to stand alongside clients as they navigate their unique paths, offering unwavering support and understanding.

Are you feeling like there are patterns in your life that hold you back? Have you been working hard to find the happiness that you always dreamed of, and it doesn't seem to matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to get there? Perhaps, you have broken free of unhealthy environments or unhealthy experiences, yet you still have an emptiness you can't seem to fill. Or you experience depression, anxiety, PTSD or other diagnosable mental health concerns. Creating your happiness is possible. Sometimes it just takes a person with some professional distance from your situation and therapeutic skill to help you find your way forward.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how I can assist you. I have been in private practice since 2020 and have worked with preteens/teens, adults, and older adults in many different venues, including online, in-person and group settings. I have experience working with issues related to anxiety/depression, trauma, disability and LGBTQ2+. In conjunction with traditional talk-based psychotherapy with many clients, I integrate elements of mindfulness and meditation. I also practice from a psychedelically informed perspective and am open to incorporating holistic healing methods into treatment planning.

I work exclusively with children age 7 to 17 (with some mild fluctuation on either end of that spectrum). I am a trained narrative therapist specializing in children. I use narrative therapy, play therapy, ACT, and CBT to assist children and adolescents with scavenging their lives, environment, and existence to locate, extricate, and nurture hope. The children I work alongside often struggle with anxiety, grief, trauma, divorce and familial separation, adversity, and sadness. I am the luckiest of psychologists to be able to accompany the extraordinary children I meet for a few steps along their journey.

Sometimes life throws us experiences that make us question who we are, challenge our sense of connection with others, or traumatize us. Whether these experiences result in stress, depression, anxiety, grief, or substance use, these life situations can be difficult to manage on our own. Imagine a non-judgemental, compassionate, and empathetic space to find your pathway to improved wellness. I work with adults, teens, couples, and families, striving to understand how these experiences have impacted them. I appreciate the privilege of being able to work collaboratively with my clients, finding strengths and working towards goals.

Therapy is a support, and we all have other various supports in our lives. At times we face challenges where we want help, whether it’s rock climbing, building a home, raising children, or thinking about life changing decisions. We’ve perhaps watched someone build a house by themselves on YouTube, but even when they do it by themselves, they use all kinds of buttresses and structures to support things while they get the home to the point where it holds itself together without those supports. Therapists work themselves out of a job because we want to see people grow and succeed, gaining the tools and confidence to thrive in life.

Looking for an adult autism assessment with a neurodivergent psychologist? Feeling dismissed by people who don’t understand medical trauma or how hard it is to stop masking? You have the right to feel accepted, heard, and believed—even during an assessment! I was “late-diagnosed” and understand how relieving a diagnosis can be after decades of feeling misunderstood and exhausted. My assessments are thorough and the options were entirely designed by autistic people, who I routinely work with to refine things. You can do the entire assessment from home and take the time you need. Do a FREE self-screen on my site here: www.ndpsych.com

Being pulled in many different directions is exhausting. Work, family and personal stress can be overwhelming, and cause us to shut down, become upset or even feel anxious. From work to sleep to relationships, joy is missing. You might feel burned out, alone, and perhaps disconnected from your own body. You might have tried other resources and they aren't working. You don’t know where to turn. Here’s where I come in. I have worked through personal trauma, work-related stress, and experienced career changes. Now I seek to provide a safe place for people to find a helpful way forward.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
