I work from a foundation of mindfulness, CBT, DBT, and ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).
My focus is to create a safe, judgment-free space where you feel you can be open about what you're experiencing and work through any challenges you have been enduring. You may feel uncertain about how to move forward or as though you are lacking the tools or insight you need to navigate your current situation. In our time together, it is essential that you feel not only heard and understood, but that you have gained the insight and tools necessary to uncover helpful solutions. Through this process, you will feel more confident in yourself and your capacity to manage whatever stressors come your way.

I work from a trauma-informed lens & person-centred approach, drawing upon CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused, Attachment Theory and Self-Compassion.
Do you feel like you're caught in the same cycles that aren't getting you anywhere, have negative beliefs about yourself that are keeping you stuck, or feel like you're constantly stressed or anxious and running on E? Clients who come to counselling may want to take control of their racing mind, calm their nervous system, establish self-care and wellness routines, better understand themselves/patterns in their life, learn self-compassion, or are just looking for a safe space where their feelings & lived experiences are honoured. I have 8 years of experience working with clients in various supportive capacities.

You have a good job, nice family, busy life and have checked off all the boxes yet you feel anxious, sad and alone. You may find yourself struggling with imposter syndrome at work and feel like you need to keep others happy and be the strong one in your relationships. You find it difficult to trust and be vulnerable. Your "to-do" list is endless. You wonder why your life is not turning out the way you expected. You feel like your whole life is about others and there is no room for you.

Many of my clients reach out feeling stuck and frustrated in repeating patterns of anxiety, depression, relationship distress, and trauma responses. In relationships, they experience the defeating feeling of "here we go again" as conflict arises. My clients are trying their best to navigate challenging situations using old survival strategies that don't seem to help them break the pattern. Many of my clients are seeking to feel calm and experience more emotional balance. Another common goal for clients is to start living in line with their values, or what they truly want in life.

Life can bring unexpected challenges, changes, and loss. I am committed to sitting with you where you are today.

We will work together to increase awareness and to identify and change old patterns, shift emotions and experiences held in your body, honour personal boundaries, and develop self-compassion. A significant loss at the age of 29 led me on a path to pursue grad school and yoga teacher training, before starting in private practice in 2016. I have worked in the counselling field for over 20 years.

As we know, the best results come from those who put the work in. That being said, homework is part of the process with this type of researched-based therapy. The purpose of the homework is to help you work on and gain new skills that will benefit you throughout your life. Each visit will consist of a routine outcome measure to monitor your progress and help you determine when you are ready to graduate from therapy.

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario catastrophising or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
