"Struggling with life? Talk therapy really helps! I listen. Often, in spite of our best intentions, our emotional reactions and behaviours can be self-defeating and hurtful. Through caring relationship, non-judgmental questions, affirmations, and client expression of feelings, the client feels relief, is encouraged, and becomes aware of the things one cannot change, motivated to change the things one can, and to know the difference. It is my job as therapist to be fully present to the client. I support the client to gain insight about his/her own self and through awareness, live more whole and fulfilling lives."

"Brain injuries or adverse life events can significantly impact the brain's ability to self-regulate and this gives rise to difficult mental states such as anxiety, depression, rage, irritability, difficulties with attention and mental focus, etc. Patients who seek treatment from me often carry labels such as bipolar disorder, personality disorder, depression, generalized anxiety disorder, etc. Regardless of labels, the core symptom that majority struggle with is extreme level of emotional arousal that the nervous system has difficulty inhibiting. They feel either "jacked" (or hijacked) or energetically/emotionally collapsed."

"Having an addicted person in your life can feel like a nightmare and tear your family apart. In order for addiction to have a chance of healing, we must first address the dynamics of the addict's relationships with their loved ones. Many loved ones unwittingly enable the addiction to continue, sometimes because they want to avoid confrontation and conflict. As the enabling continues, the addiction continues as well-and becomes progressively worse. It is important to understand that enabling an addict is never a loving act-and only leads to more severe consequences as time goes on."

"Does it take you a long time to calm down after being upset? Have you been told that you are "overly sensitive" to emotions? Emotions are natural however they do not have to control us. Sometimes it feels as though our emotions are in control of our lives and moods are subject to change on a whim. I work with clients to better understand their emotional process and learn to tolerate uncomfortable emotions. Ultimately it is about working towards emotional control and having healthier behaviour.
