***Currently offering Phone and Online Video sessions. If you are a Front Line Worker go to https://covid19therapists.com/ for Free Therapy over the Phone.*** When we feel overwhelmed, resentful, anxious, or unhappy, our emotions are telling us that something isn't right. Usually that is because we have started making decisions that are intended to protect us from feeling pain that we have felt before, pain that was too much too bare. When we discover what these patterns in our behaviour or relationships are, and what the pain or fear is that is underneath them, it can open up space for joy, creativity, and peace.

Our mind can be our greatest resource and at times our worst enemy. Managing the unhealthy chatter of our mind can prove to be our greatest challenge. Unhelpful responses to our thoughts, feelings and life situations can cause anxiety and depression problems as well the reliance on unhealthy habits in an attempt to cope. My approach focuses on learning to effectively managing our thoughts, feelings and relationships and on living life in a manner consistent with your values. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals to overcome difficulties, to achieve goals and to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope.
