Are things feeling like a lot right now? It's tough out there. Whether you're struggling in your relationships, wondering what the heck a boundary is and how to create them, needing ways to cope with a really intense world, or wanting to trace a frustrating pattern and find new ways forward, you deserve support. I work with folks who are feeling stuck or overwhelmed to build resilience and choice. Using a somatic, attachment-based approach, I aim to create a space of care and acceptance for folks to name and feel feelings, map out unhelpful patterns, and practice new ways of navigating life’s challenges.

Do you have the sense that there is underlying pain that is preventing you from fully enjoying your life? Often, our unhelpful patterns originally evolved as strategies to meet needs, and to protect ourselves against overwhelming distress. My work aims to help you more effectively meet the needs behind these old, perhaps outdated strategies. Some of the issues that clients come to me for help with are: personal growth and alignment with life purpose; emotional regulation; emotional intimacy; anxiety and panic attacks; self-worth; and grief and loss (personal and collective).

Your child is amazing. You just want the best for them. If you're exploring the idea of therapy, it's likely that your child is currently encountering some difficulties. There's nothing more heart-wrenching than witnessing your child face challenges. Sometimes, you can pinpoint the underlying issue, but in other instances, it remains a complete mystery. Art therapists are trained in both art and psychology, and have knowledge about the psychological role of the creative process and the impact of using different art materials and techniques for helping uncover issues, build healthy coping mechanisms, and support healing and growth.

Divine Alchemy (formerly Bliss Mental Health) is at a new location at 518 Lake Street, Suite 203. 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. Evidenced-based and trauma informed; approached from a spiritual and cultural lens and can assist with residential school generational impact.

I wear many hats and consider myself a forever learner. I am an integrative therapist who uses Ayurveda, yoga, and body-focused psychotherapy techniques to support healing. I am dedicated to these practices as they provide me with the groundedness and centeredness to show up with an open-hearted, embodied, and compassionate presence. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, cooking using whole foods, being in nature, and creating through artistic endeavours. I would say I am playful, and eccentric, with a good sense of humour. I look forward to connecting with you on your healing journey!

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.

‘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. As challenging as these experiences can be, we can grow our strength and grow our courage in our willingness to approach them. I work with clients to assist in living with more calm, courage, compassion, meaning, and deep connection.

If you are struggling with a particular issue, feeling lost in a relationship; intimate or professional, worrying and lacking the motivation to put ideas/thoughts into action, or just generally feeling stuck, I'm glad you are here. Life is complex and doesn't come with clear and definitive guidelines. No wonder we can feel overwhelmed! Sometimes it can just feel like it too much to manage alone.

If you are feeling lost, disconnected or uncertain about life, you will find a safe space with me to explore your challenges in life with a supportive, empathic listener. Modern living is inherently stressful, and many resort to using unhealthy coping strategies that can get you stuck; by getting curious about the stuck-ness together, we can work together to untangle the knots and shift back into your natural state of wholeness. If you have lost your centre, feel reactive or unbalanced by the demands of life you will benefit from counselling. I will help you return to your core Self and find passion and purpose in life.

I believe counselling can be a space where we can get to know our authentic selves, where many parts of ourselves can be explored and we can start to resist the boxes that may be confining us. I view counselling as a collaborative process and recognize each person’s natural ability to gravitate toward change at their own pace. The genuine connection of a counselling relationship in a safe enough and inclusive environment is often at the root of healing.

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialised therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
