Life can be challenging. Sometimes we need help to improve the quality of daily experiences & relationships. Anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction (sex, gambling & substances), anger, grief, complicated relationships, personality disorders and self-esteem all influence our lives. As a clinical supervisor for two addiction facilities, I have experience with complex mental health issues. I assist clients in identifying codependency traits, narcissists in their relationships and how emotional dis-regulation contributes to complications. Having overcome my own challenges aids in an authentic connection with my clients. Compassion and humour are tools I use while I assist clients in reclaiming identity

Feeling overwhelmed? Difficulties managing your emotions? Stuck in depression, anxiety, grief, or chronic pain? Finding your relationship(s) a challenge? I have over two decades of experience working with individuals, couples, and families facing mental health issues, trauma/PTSD, difficulties with interpersonal relationships, chronic pain, grief, life transitions, and sexuality. I don't condone toxic positivity, but I do believe in radical acceptance. That doesn't translate into complacency, but acceptance that there are limits to our ability to control our surroundings.

I am a Clinical Therapist working with families and children, age 5-10. As school begins many issues kids put aside for their summer begin to resurface - peer pressures, bullying, learning issues, and self esteem. Children are often dealing with parental separation, divorce, remarriage and family deaths. Social media is a mixed blessing bringing children into contact with adult worlds - floods, wild fires, rising costs of everyday living; when we adults are concerned, our children are affected. No surprise, they are now experiencing high levels of anxiety, leading to moodiness, defiance, poor sleep and school problems.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
