I often wonder why there is so much pain and suffering. I realized that what we need is not homeostasis or a tensionless state. Instead, we need the right amount of tension for change, growth, and development to take place. I had the privilege to journey with people facing different aspects of the human condition (suffering, grief, loss, meaninglessness, etc.) I am often amazed by human determination, courage, and strength in the process toward growth and development as they face life challenges. Life is full of challenges and adversity; it would be a privilege to journey with you toward a meaningful and purpose-driven life.

The most important consideration for you is that you are comfortable with your choice of therapist. If you decide to work with me, I will provide a safe, non-judgmental space. With support you can build self-awareness, insight, and learn how to reframe thoughts, change behaviours or process emotions in healthier ways. I work compassionately, respectfully and collaboratively to help clients achieve their treatment goals. My integrative approach draws from Cognitive Behaviorial Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, Brief Solution Focused and Attachment.

I have been working in Social services for over 30 years; over 20 in private practice. I enjoy using the eclectic combinations of modalities that I have learned. In general I find that as humans, our minds cause us a great deal of suffering. Learning to understand our minds so that we can change the negative scripts that keep us stuck in the same patterns is the greatest gift I have to offer. It is only then that we can experience our full potential of happiness and fulfillment in life. I use a client-centred approach. My practice welcomes the diversity of all humans.

I am accepting new clients. We all stumble and work to find our way back, but sometimes life adds challenges that make these ups and downs harder to navigate. Relationship struggles, shifting goals, social pressures and the added stress that comes with change can leave us overwhelmed, make us feel stuck, make us question if we're good enough or make make our decisions feel impossible. Support can help us to examine our paths and patterns and to regain our confidence so that we can build the life we want.

The healing process is unique to each person. While many go through similar events, not everyone experiences them in the same way. I view my clients through a holistic lens to develop a collaborative, therapeutic relationship. I help my clients develop healthy ways to manage distress, find ways to move out of being stuck, develop new insight for unresolved issues, and increase overall wellbeing. My primary focus is working with clients who have experienced trauma. Because the nature of trauma is complex, I use an integrative, person-centered approach to meet my clients' needs at their pace and readiness.

Making the decision to engage in therapy is a proactive way to ensure your mental health is a priority. My philosophy is to create a safe and secure environment that allows for open, honest discussion, which will then foster both understanding and healing. Using an integrative approach to therapy, I collaborate with each individual to create an experience that is comfortable, supported and progressive. It is my goal to help people explore their issues at their own pace, and in a supportive way. A unique element of my practice centres around Animal Assisted Therapy. I worked with my previous therapy dog (Mona) for 5 years.

Integrative Counsellors
Integrative therapy in K2A refers to therapy in which elements from different types of therapy may be used. Therapists 'integrate' two or more therapeutic styles (e.g. Cognitive and Family Systems) to bring about a personalized and practical approach to healing. These K2A integrative therapy Counsellors practice an integrative therapy style.

Integrative therapy (with a small 'i') may also refer to the process of 'integrating' the personality by taking disowned or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality whole. It reduces the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit spontaneity and allows flexibility in solving emotional problems.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in K2A are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in K2A you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in K2A and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in K2A or family therapy in K2A.
