I believe that people are inherently healthy and resilient, and capable of recovering from areas where they may be stuck by finding new insights, knowledge and tools. I see my role as helping people find their way through mental health challenges, challenges with family relationships or with work, struggles with chronic illness, loss and grief, or through life transitions to see their highest potential.

Some of us feel challenged by anxiety, depression, or anger. Some by the relationships in our lives with partners, family, or in the workplace. Parenting never fails to challenge our best intentions, or we can also find ourselves repeating behaviours and ways of thinking that no longer work for us. My clients are typically active partners in change – sometimes to change those habitual behaviours or ways of thinking, sometimes to interact more effectively, sometimes to nourish personal growth, and sometimes just to clarify and explore.

On the outside, you look like you have it all together, but truth is, on the inside you're a mess. You used to pride yourself on being able to balance a successful career, kids and a healthy relationship. But now, you feel burnt out and anxious; your worries are always rolling around in your mind. Lately, you've been more irritable and frustrated toward your kids and spouse, which makes you feel terrible. Worse yet, you've completely forgotten about yourself. It feels like you are drowning under the weight of your problems and you are desperate to get free. You never imagined yourself seeing a therapist, but you know you need help.

I help youth clients who are struggling with ADHD, anxiety, stress or managing their emotions. I incorporate physical activity, movement, sports and games into my therapeutic practice whenever appropriate. I taught Physical Education for 20+ years, and have been a youth coach in multiple sports. Because I have seen first hand, the benefits that being active has on both physical and mental health, I use Therapeutic Fitness as one of my therapy models.

Hello..One of my areas of interest is working with people who have survived sexual abuse or personal trauma. Initially, I build rapport and a trusting relationship with you. One of our first tasks usually involves identifying your strengths and what’s important to you; these are major components of allowing successful trauma processing and resolution to occur. Another area of interest for me is working with adolescents. Having once been a teen in need of additional support, I am able to empathize and quickly connect with young people. In my work with youth some topics include anxiety, self-harm, self-esteem, and anger management.

I am passionate about working with children, adolescents and their families in navigating life's challenges. I choose approaches that I believe will be appropriate for your unique child and situation as I do not believe there is "one-size-fits-all" solution when it comes to healing. I believe in working in partnership with caregivers and other important adults in the child's life to address concerns in a holistic manner.

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.
