I work with adults , teenagers, and couples and provide treatment for a wide range of issues, from anxiety and depression to relationship-building.
—Accepting new clients— Each of us has a story we want to be true. What kind of partner/parent/friend do I want to be? What is the work I want to do in the world? What do I want to make more central, and where do I want to learn to let go? If you’re seeing me in individual sessions, then we’re exploring what matters most to you and how to work with the obstacles that keep you from it. And if you’re coming as a couple, then we’re working together to help you have the conversations you want to have, but don’t know how.

My work is inclusive of a wide range of people including gender variant children and adults , adopted families, single parent families, and people with trauma histories.
Clients come to me when they (or their loved ones) are dealing with anxiety, depression, behavioural challenges, mood swings, challenging life events, flash backs, PTSD, or childhood trauma. I use Brainspotting, EMDR, Creative Arts therapy and other strength-based approaches to help clients build confidence, self-understanding, and concrete strategies to manage the challenges of daily life. My clients learn about the brain-body connection of their distress and challenges, building positive skills to be able to manage life’s stresses and become less overwhelmed by emotional triggers.

I offer individual therapy for adults (young and less young) from every background.
Maybe you have tried many things and still feel there is something getting in the way of being the person you want to be. Maybe you are continuously looking for strategies to help you feel better but still feel stuck with difficult emotions and feelings. Maybe life threw obstacles in your way that turned your world upside-down. Sometimes, the obstacles can even come from inside in the form of negative, critical, anxious, or depressed thoughts and feelings. All this can keep you from connecting with others, making decisions, doing daily life activities, feeling confident about yourself, or finding meaning in life.

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 Halifax?
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 Halifax 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.
