I am trained in CBT, DBT and Narrative Therapy to help a variety of issues.
My ideal client is someone who has taken that courageous first step and admitted they need help. They may be struggling with addiction, stress, anxiety, depression or even just the pressures of everyday life, seeking better work-life balance. They are seeking a compassionate, empathetic listener, someone who can work with them to improve their life and help them learn new skills to lead a more enriched and fulfilling life.

I typically use CBT, DBT , Systems Theory, Stages of Change Theory, Mindfulness and EFT.
Accepting new clients - Phone sessions available. Direct billing with Blue Cross. The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping strategies and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. We repeat what’s familiar. Even though we know what is dysfunctional and not working well for us, we repeat behaviours because they are familiar. We can break old patterns and rewire our brain, forming new neural connections so that new thoughts and behaviours become the norm.

From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

I am a Licensed Counseling Therapist candidate, (RCT-C) whose specific psychotherapeutic training is anchored in Drama therapeutic processes. This is a therapeutic approach that utilizes talk therapy and engages personalized creative expression for catharsis. It is an innovative approach for those who may be stuck in old patterns or need to explore new ways to better communicate them. Clients explore alternative solutions to challenges by rehearsing alternative cognitive/behavioral responses using “what if ” imagination. Engaging an element of guided, gentle imaginative physicality helps better express what might be suppressed.

Life can be filled with challenge and hardship, which can often leave us struggling. Whether it be situations of the past that make us feel stuck, overwhelming moments that seem to plague us, or an abrupt transition in life, my goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and develop a new zest for life. Most importantly, I see my role as being someone in your corner. Where it can be all too common for those hardships to add up, what can make matters that much more difficult is in having to face them alone.
