Do you feel that no matter how much you do, you’re just not good enough? You’re used to finding solutions but feel at a loss with this constant inner judgment. You're trying to cope with this inner judgment. But perhaps the coping strategies only work temporarily. They may even create more problems. You're stuck in this loop of feeling not good enough and trying your best to cope, and still not feeling good enough. There's a part of you that knows you are capable. But this gnawing inner voice doesn't let you believe that you are ‘enough.’

Difficulty turning your mind off? Demanding perfection of yourself and falling short? Overwhelmed by deadlines, diapers, and never-ending discussions with... everybody? Everybody wants a piece of your time - including you! I work with busy professionals who recognize that their lives have become unsustainable. Perhaps it has shown up as high blood pressure, a strained relationship, or simply sustained unhappiness. Your life is not working as you would like and something needs to change.

Our work as parents and caregivers never really ends, and often takes us on journeys we never anticipated. If you're here, perhaps getting here was one of those journeys. As a Child, Adolescent and Family Therapist and a Clinical Social Worker, I've been working with kids and their families as they navigate challenging situations for over 11 years. My approach is family-centered, mindfulness-based, and trauma-informed, with a sprinkle of creativity and silliness on the side. After all, play is the natural language for kids and teens, and frankly, adults need more of that too!

Life is a journey with unexpected challenges and at times suffering. We all need supports and strategies to rediscover our inner strengths. I work in a partnership with you as we explore and unpack your relationships, your roles and your sense of self. There is always hope and meaning even in the darkest places. Also in all relationships there are times when one or both partners feel hopeless, frustrated, betrayed or deeply hurt by the other. In both individual and couple counseling we work together to develop new techniques towards not only coping, but towards finding renewed hope and meaning. I love what I do!

I can help you to understand and manage stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, chronic pain, and other mental health concerns, as well as to navigate challenging situations, interpersonal conflict, uncertainty, and life transitions. When working with children, I can help them to understand and regulate their feelings and thoughts as well as communicate with their parents, peers, and teachers. For parents, we can put our minds together and I can support you to navigate difficult experiences with your children and in your relationships, including your self-care, which can be so challenging when you are as busy as you are.

“How are you?” is a question many of us get asked several times a day, yet, the person asking is usually not interested in the honest answer to the question. I am. As a certified clinical trauma specialist, I am able to use a trauma-informed lens that highlights one’s strengths and resilience and allows for them to explore their experiences in a safe environment. Additionally, I use an informed approach when working with adults in areas regarding sex, sexual identity, sexual education, and general sexual therapy. I aim to create a safe space, one of compassion, empathy, and care, using a person-centered, integrative approach.

Most of my clients have one parent who is self-centered. That has led me to specialize in ADULT CHILDREN OF NARCISSISTS. Areas of self-esteem that are affected are, not feeling lovable, taking care of others but not yourself, feeling you are bad, to blame, selfish, a bother etc. As a child of a narcissist I know how you feel and it is not good.. My work does not focus only on how to cope better, but how to get rid of the problem. An example is ANXIETY. Anxiety is often an UNCONSCIOUS response to feeling, old hurtful feelings, like HELPLESS, HUMILIATED (bullied), and ABANDONED. In healing these feelings you become less anxious.

I WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. Life can often get in our way, and things can catch up with us and we suddenly realize this is not the life we want for ourselves. Painful, emotional feelings from our past can affect our self-esteem, all our relationships, esp intimate ones, and conflict occurs. Relationships are at our core, and understanding ourselves oft through the lens of difficult relationships help us learn how to be more compassionate, nurture self-love, be better communicators, and to create more trust and belief in oneself. I am often referred to as the "Happiness Locator" & Self Esteem Coach.

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 M2R?
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 M2R 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.
