I believe in the mind-body connection, and how distress impacts how we show up in our lives & relationships. I trust clients instinctively know what to do to feel better, and that I spark their insight by allowing someone to first feel heard and understood. Clients and I often explore how to take the charge out of distressing emotions and/or experiences that underlie their presenting concerns (e.g., anxiety, depression , work/life/relationship stressors etc). Living with type-1 diabetes myself, I also support people in reducing T1D-related distress in order to feel more confident managing this chronic condition.

Each one of us will struggle at some point in our lives, but these are particularly challenging times for many us. With lockdown, stress, anxiety, and depression are increasing, as are unhelpful coping strategies. Relationships are being tested. Many of my clients are seeking to feel calm and experience more emotional balance. Others are deciding that now is a good time to start the healing process from a past traumatic experience. Another common goal for clients is to start living in line with their values, or what they truly want in life.

As a Master's level clinician I can help you understand how anxiety, depression , trauma and stress affect every part of your life.
Taking New Clients. You've been stressed, worried, but you don't want to burden others. You feel stuck, alone or are afraid of being judged. Do your family or work relationships leave you feeling guilty, frustrated or angry? Drinking or using weed just to cope sometimes? You need a private place to talk without feeling judged, blamed or told you are wrong. You need support and want change. I help adult clients understand their mild/moderate anxiety, depression , work stress and trauma then learn practical skills to cope, and feel relief. Uncovering the roots of these issues is a game changer. Things can get better. Talking helps.

Infertility, separation and divorce, single-parenting, adoption, blended families, parent-teen conflict, depression and anxiety, addiction and recovery are all personal challenges that have brought incredible change to my life.
'Challenge brings change". Easy to say, yet difficult to do. Victor Frankl wrote, "when we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves", (Man's Search for Meaning, 1946). When we find ourselves in difficult situations, we have choice - remain in the pain, or seek support to move through. I know life's greatest challenges have brought incredible change to my life, but it hasn't been easy. You don't need to face challenge and change alone.

I work with 12 and up. It is normal to not know what you need or what to expect. Maybe the way you feel is very far off from who you believe you are. The goal my clients bring to me is various. The most common? The desire to feel better. Clients have noticed improved personal relationships with self and others when they make the choice for 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.

Life can be unsettling, overwhelming, even traumatic at times. Self-esteem can waiver, relationships can be difficult, we can become anxious, depressed , experience guilt, loss and sadness. All are normal parts of the human experience, yet not always easy to navigate on our own. My belief is that through a dialogical relationship with a compassionate other, while listening to the information our body provides, healing is very possible. I aim to create an environment which assists couples in acquiring skills to strengthen communication and connection. Individual uniqueness is celebrated as are an understanding of individual needs.

I support adults and adolescents who are struggling with a range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression , trauma and PTSD, grief, substance use disorders, sleep disorders, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and others. My clients often arrive feeling at the end of their rope - lost, alone, angry, afraid, overwhelmed, thoroughly drained, hopeless, or sometimes just completely stuck. They want their lives to be better, but don’t know how to begin to identify steps to take or how to manage that change. They want help dealing with difficult emotions and they want their lives to make sense.

If you're experiencing anxiety, depression , hopelessness, shame, relationship concerns, grief, confusion, low motivation, numbness, rumination, or another painful state, I am here to support you.
‘Hearts are not the burdens they carry; but the burdens they carry can drive their extremes' (Richard Schwartz, 2018). There are times when we feel truly burdened: exhausted, confused, immobilized, distressed, anxious, in relationship discord or overwhelmed. Seeking help in these times is a profound step. Because as challenging as these experiences can be, our willingness to approach them, and our courage to change, are our openings to growth, expansion, and transformation. I collaborate with you to help you unburden, and to empower your authentic Self to live with more calm, courage, compassion, meaning, and deep connection.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Fernie. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
