I work primarily in trauma, sexual violence, and intimate partner violence.
Are you struggling and not sure where to start? You may want help with addictions or mental health, your own sexual or violent behaviour or healing from past harms.

You could be looking for help with your existing family or intimate relationships, job stress, or something else that affects your wellness. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to discuss your needs in advance of your first session. Services are offered by telephone or video.

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.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Halifax are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Each professional in Halifax then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Halifax, or Child Psychologists in Halifax.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Halifax psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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.
