Sometimes in life, we need a mentor, advocate or a careful, accepting and non-judgmental, yet skilled, listener for our thought and emotion processes. My intention as a therapist is to be there for you with a compassionate presence, contributing my expertise to help you access your needs, self-understanding and inner wisdom. Where unconscious behaviours and unsuccessful life patterns impede access to fulfillment and happiness in life, I offer skills development for self-care, self-discovery and self-mastery. I welcome clients who experience emotional distress due to trauma, loss, anxiety, panic, low self-esteem, depression and relationship problems, providing skilled guidance and support.

I am a clinical psychologist who provides in person and virtual therapy to adults wherever they are along the mental health continuum. Using science-based approaches combined with your lived experience, my hope is to facilitate growth, joy, and agency towards your life worth living, as defined by you. A portion of my work is with athletes and para athletes experiencing mental health concerns. My interest in these populations stems from personal experience as a high performance athlete and the ups/downs related to injury and retirement.

My aim is to help people recognize their inner strength. I am quite passionate about working with folks who feel trapped in a pattern of unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that can often dictate their view of themselves and the world. My practice is cognitive behavioural focused; however, I also have experience incorporating evidence based approaches such as mindfulness, dialectical behaviour therapy, motivational interviewing and solution focused brief therapy techniques. Treatment will be tailored specifically to each person’s needs and goals. Grenadier's practice is LGBTQ positive, trauma-informed, and weight inclusive.

Seems like everyone's talking about therapy these days. But what makes this process effective? The answer will be different for couples and individuals. Allow me to suggest some things to look for... It can be helpful if your therapist is knowledgeable and engaged, warm and curious. Ideally they will support you in clarifying your goals for the process and will suggest clear ways to reach them. They should have a sense of how race, gender and a host of other identity locations can inform trauma. With over 15 years experience, I have developed a dynamic, supportive style that includes each of these elements.

I believe that encountering painful moments and periods of hardship is inevitable and can bring us into contact with the most fundamental parts of ourselves. Instead of avoiding these experiences, I am interested in working with you to explore them with curiosity and self-compassion. Healing is a nonlinear process that takes time, and some things may always be unresolved; I see therapy as a safe space to collaboratively explore and articulate different facets of your experience, set therapeutic goals, and work together to create desired changes.

While the specific reasons people seek therapy vary, we come to the work because we recognize that some psychic and emotional pain is preventing us from living our most dynamic and meaningful lives. Therapy is a process of inner work that allows us to work through those barriers. In a supportive, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship we can begin to encounter the unknown and disavowed aspects of ourselves and in doing so learn from these parts of ourselves, heal and integrate, and transform our relationship to ourselves and others.

I believe that we are all shaped by our early environments. If our early environments were chaotic, unsafe or created by addictive behaviours, the conditions to thrive in were less than optimal. These failures in development can keep us stuck, impeding our growth as creative and vital individuals. If your feelings have become unmanageable, are struggling to fully engage in the world or are having difficulty establishing and maintaining relationships, therapy could be of help to you. I know, from personal experience, that taking the first step to enter into a therapeutic alliance is a courageous one.
