I approach therapy as a creative and collaborative process that involves the whole being of both the therapist and client. In order to lead fulfilling, joyful lives, humans need access to the intelligence available through their physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves. Trauma, shame, and fear can disrupt our ability to access and experience these aspects of self fully, and can leave us feeling dissatisfied with our lives. By working directly with clients' felt sense of their bodies, as well as their stories and their feelings, I support clients in deepening their relationship to all aspects of themselves.

When life's challenges become too overwhelming, our mind & body can feel stuck, out of control, like there's no way out. You may even feel disconnected from your body, not fully present in your everyday life, or in a constant state of alarm. This pain can start in early childhood & is built on throughout our life, or it can be a single event that destabilizes our internal resources. It’s important to remember these responses are normal adaptations by the mind & body to abnormal situations. This dysregulation can show up in our lives as anxiety, depression, chronic pain & illness, substance use, negative thoughts, or low self-esteem.

Negative thoughts reel through your head throughout the day and have you tossing and turning at night. You get through your day as if everything is ok, but it isn’t… it’s exhausting! Life’s challenges leave you feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. Your relationships are suffering and you find yourself wanting to avoid the people and places you used to enjoy. No one seems to understand what you’re going through which leaves you feeling misunderstood, invalidated, and unsupported. You want to feel “normal” again. You just want your life back. You’ve had enough, and it’s time to make some serious changes. This is where I can help.

These post-pandemic times are challenging for us all and our mental health is perhaps more important than ever. I know from my own personal experience, that counselling can make us more aware of our issues and so make possible the kinds of personal changes that we want to see. As a counsellor, my priority is to offer a safe and confidential space where you can talk and be heard, without judgement of any kind. By working together, it is possible to reach a place of less fear, anxiety and sadness making possible a life with more hope, gratitude and yes - happiness.

Has traditional therapy not worked for you? Do certain memories still have a strong negative emotional pull when they come up, or when discussed in therapy? For some, there needs to be more than simply talking about the issues that distress us. Sometimes we need to address the underlying cause — the ‘root’ of the problem — not just the current symptoms that currently cause us distress: whether it be interpersonally, emotionally or within the cognitive space.

We live in a rapidly changing and often unsettled world. Stress, anxiety and depression are common reactions to never ending barrage of daily life. Our bodies are adapting to these challenges in the best way they know how. Sometimes it's too much, and we need to ask for help, or support, in initiating change or making sense of our situations.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Port Renfrew?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Port Renfrew specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
