When life's stressors weigh too heavily, our ability to cope effectively can be impacted. Having a confidential and compassionate place to explore one's experience can support a return to confidence and engagement with life. Looking for improved coping? Yearning to feel a sense of okay-ness and well being? Wanting to experience greater calm and contentment?

I am passionate about working with people who have experienced violence and trauma, those navigating creative and alternative life paths, and those wanting to connect deeper with their own desires and a fuller expression of themselves. I work to come from a place of deep compassion and understanding for the ways in which the world around us can impact our ability to be our most embodied and whole selves. I brings a justice lens to my counselling. I seek to see the ways that symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and challenges with communication, trust, and building relationships are responses to trauma, violence, and oppression.

My passion is to work with children and families to support them in having a better connection with each other and the environment they live in. I provide a fun, safe place for children to learn about their feelings, how their bodies work and how they can get the support they need. This can look like learning strategies they can use on their own, or with their parents support and having the language to express what they are feeling. Parenting is the most amazing and rewarding experience, yet it can also the most challenging. I provide parents with tools to be present, calm and understanding of what their child may need.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
