***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.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and negative thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. Mental health doesn’t have to be this hard. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make quality mental health therapy simple and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.

Mood Disorders (Seasonal Affective, Post-Partum) Counsellors
Mood Disorder is a clinical term given to a group of diagnoses in the DSM IV guide where an imbalance in someone's mood (e.g. hyper or depressed) is the main underlying feature of their condition. Mood Disorder may also be referred to as Mood Affective Disorder. Two types of mood disorders (or mood affective disorders) are broadly recognized; there are depressive disorders, such as major depressive disorder (MDD), clinical depression or major depression. And bipolar disorder (BD), which used to be known as manic depression and is characterized by periods of mania or hypomania, interlaced with depressive episodes.

Seasonal Affective Mood Disorder or Seasonal Mood Disorder (SAD) is generally included within the former type/group as it's not characterized by hyper or manic moods.

If you're looking for help with mood disorders in L1N or for a L1N mood disorder Counsellor these professionals provide help for mood disorders. They include mood disorder Counsellors in L1N, mood disorder psychologists, mood disorder psychotherapists and mood disorder counsellors. They can help with counselling for mood disorders in L1N (mood disorder counselling) and L1N treatment for mood disorders.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
