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.

There are times in our lives when we just need someone there. Someone who we know gets us and cares as much as we do. At times it's when it's most difficult to reach out, we feel vulnerable and perhaps alone. We can be dealing with old resurfacing trauma, or behaviors we don't understand why they are happening. Perhaps we have anxiety, depression or grief has come knocked at our door. Relationships are challenging us. We want to be met and have a sense of being seen for who and what we are. We long to be understood or simply to find new ways of being and wonder how to get there. We long for change and the knowing that we are OK.

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 believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to grow and change. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives without the insight as to how they can be helped. I use a strengths-based approach as I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering and insecurities. All therapies are evidenced-based and trauma informed.

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. 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.
