My work stems from a holistic and integrative approach which includes mindfulness, breath work, and evidence-based modalities such as CBT.
There are times where the challenges we face in our daily lives become too difficult to manage on our own. I can help navigate those who are looking to add meaning and purpose to their lives, generating motivation, and regaining control. The ability to achieve wellness and stability in our lives, exists somewhere inside of us. The disconnection we experience from the things that bring us happiness and joy may cause us to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by stress. My aim is to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, and safe environment to help support you through life’s difficulties that may have you feeling stuck and under pressure.

I use a blend of EMDR, CBT, DBT, self-compassion, mindfulness practices and inner child work to help clients resolve past challenges and move towards the life they want to live.
Healing is one of the bravest choices we can make for ourselves. My experience in working with clients who have lived through trauma has afforded me a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection, and how we can struggle to live full and connected lives when we are out of sync with our needs and values. I hope to support clients in resolving challenges by building upon their strengths and tools. From my own lived history, I also take special interest in working with issues around acculturation, identity, and cultural and spiritual abuse.

My deepest privilege is to come alongside you, listen as you share your story, and begin to help understand what happened to you. Past experiences shape some of how you view and process life experiences today. Your past informs your present. I can help you explore those experiences, how they have affected you in the past and now in your current relationships, your emotions and reactions...even how you perceive yourself, your kids, or your partner. Being curious may open the door to understanding, self-compassion, and also bring meaning and healing to your life. You will begin to notice you feel more "you".

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

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.
