Areas of enhanced training and experience include dealing with trauma, stress, grief, anger, ADHD, anxiety based issues in both children and adults, OCD, addictions, divorce and post separation conflict in families, post-partum depression, attachment, PTSD and childhood abuse.
Over the past 20 years, I have had the privilege of assisting many individuals, couples, children, youth and families to find effective approaches and solutions best suited to their own unique needs. My passion is to help individuals, couple's and families find healthy ways to cope with and grow from the challenges and adversities that life sometimes brings. I believe that all of us have an innate desire to move toward a healthier, happier way of being. Even seemingly unhealthy beliefs, feelings, and behaviours start to make sense and can change when explored from a non-judgemental viewpoint.

Have you ever felt the need to hide your true self? Most people experience challenges; we just don’t talk about it or want others to see our struggles. Feelings of shame and fear keep us disconnected from others and isolated with our thoughts and emotions. I’ve been there many times myself. As a child, I was extremely shy and faced health challenges. With the support of loved ones, professionals and mentors in my life I was able to overcome many of my fears. I now use my skills and education to help others who might be experiencing similar concerns.

Un-controlled emotions can sabotage areas of our lives. Are you consistently angry? Or have anxiety and you're losing an appetite for life? Angry outburst can leave you embarrassed or potentially harm important relationships. You may feel a sense that life is out of control when you lash out, especially if it's towards people who didn't deserve it. High anxiety on the other hand can lead to insomnia, depression and the inability to cope with every day life. You may be asking, "Can I ever feel normal again?"

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Barrie anxiety counsellor, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counselling in Barrie.
