The transition to parenthood can be hard, whether it’s struggling with becoming pregnant, grief over miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss, depression or anxiety during and/or after pregnancy, or learning how to adjust to your new life with baby. Many parents when faced with these challenges feel overwhelmed and sad that things didn’t go as they had planned or expected.

As an ACT therapist I focus on problems that interfere with what matters most in your life, not just the diagnosis or symptoms. It's the negative impact they have that should be the focus. Struggling with emotional pain and difficult situations can make you feel disconnected from yourself and others. Treatment should make you feel fully alive, not just better than you were. Often we cannot control of our feelings but we can choose how to live with them. Working with the Acceptance & Commitment model of therapy I will help you move from a focus on "FEELING WELL" to a focus on "LIVING WELL" no matter what you are struggling with.

I provide in-person holistic counselling services to individuals across the lifespan in the Bedford and Dartmouth areas, and virtually across Canada. I offer two streams of counselling: Holistic Psychotherapy for Women, and Individuals and Families. Moving through life challenges can be stressful and isolating, resulting in feelings of anxiety, low mood, poor coping skills or a sense of being stuck in a cycle of unhealthy patterns. To move forward in our lives, it’s helpful to honor our experiences, accept that deeper emotions are appropriate in certain situations and to build trust in self (mind & body) to know the difference.

You’re exhausted and grumpy. You thought having a kid would make your family complete, but now all you and your partner talk about are diapers and schedules, and who is (or isn’t) taking care of the kids. It’s hard to hold onto the joy everyone tells us our kids should bring. You worry that things will never get better, and that you and your partner will just grow further and further apart. Even worse, you’re starting to resent your partner, your kid, and everyone else that makes it look so easy to have the perfect little family. It’s so lonely feeling like the only one who is struggling with life and family these days.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in B4A are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in B4A then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in B4A, or Child Psychologists in B4A.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like B4A psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in B4A specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
