ARE YOU A TEEN, OR A PARENT OF A TEEN? Are you feeling challenged, misunderstood, or feeling pressure in teenagehood? Or are you are parent who is challenged by your teen? Depression, anger, and anxiety are common feelings that can be running the show for teens and parents during this developmental stage of teenagehood, and can feel overwhelming. Staying trapped in the same fights, frustrations, anxieties, and unhappiness is a harmful cycle that can have lasting effects.

Do you live with sensory sensitivity, a mood or personality disorder, or a developmental or physical disability? Have your diverse needs caused significant changes or loss related to your health, spirituality, work, status, hobbies, or social life? In the most challenging of times, it’s easy to lose touch with your sense of self, safety, and hope; it can be hard to see where you have choice. But what if you could lighten the burden you carry — a little at a time — creating more space in your life for the things that nourish you? What if you gained more clarity around the choices you can make to start building a new life experience?

I specialize in helping individuals and couples overcome their struggles and reclaim a sense of agency to create positive change in their lives. In over 25 years of practice, along with my own healing and counselling journey, I have repeatedly seen that “your wounds become your wisdom”. I believe people have the resources within to access transformation, even when dealing with intense trauma, loss, anxiety or depression. My aim is to gently guide my clients to tap into these inner resources, while also learning to be comfortable in their own skin, and to be at peace and in love with themselves and their lives.

Sometimes we get caught up in our day-to-day routines or we feel too stretched, stressed, or spent to get going on creating the future we want for ourselves. Other times, there are family or societal expectations that push up against our dreams of how we want to show up or what we want to do in our lives. Adversity happens, and sometimes difficult events can block us from moving forward in the ways we want. No matter our circumstances, though, we all deserve to thrive. As Maya Angelou put it: "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

I see counselling as a collaborative process and believe that therapy offers a chance to heal, grow, and excel in life. I am passionate about helping people see their strengths and recover from limiting beliefs that are often a result of the minor or major traumas that are a part of life. I view symptoms and undesired behaviours as wise, but outdated adaptations that can be transformed. Befriending our mind and finding self acceptance are key tenets that influence my therapy. With a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, I strive to provide a safe, curious, and humorous (at times), space for your personal growth.

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 Victoria?
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 Victoria 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.
