When clients get to where they need to be, they are often talking about how they are more compassionate with themselves, more able to clearly express their wishes to themselves and to others, more willing to take risks and make mistakes, and more accepting that life is difficult, but also of great value.

What has spared us from pain in the past often keeps us stuck and anxious in the present. Most of us wish to be free of our psychological suffering, but we find ourselves continuing to treat ourselves or others poorly in spite of our best interest to do otherwise. We all need a therapeutic relationship where we can learn to experience our emotions safely, regulate our anxiety, and turn against our defenses. I provide Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a comprehensive form of psychotherapy that helps patients experience their emotions and understand themselves across a broad range of clinical concerns.

While life's challenges are inevitable, I believe that each individual holds the ability to befriend themselves and expand their capacity for self-awareness. Working alongside a mental health professional can facilitate a shift towards one's own values and richness, whatever that may mean for you. I am passionate about creating a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore and process where you've been, where you are today, and where you want to go.

Counselling therapy can be sought for many reasons. To increase well-being, to decrease discomfort, to manage a crisis, or even to clarify which of these is most pressing. My philosophy is that everyone has a unique perspective that makes them the experts on their own lives and that people come to therapy with the ability to grow; a belief grounded in neuroscience as well as outcomes research in psychotherapy.

It is with regret that at this time I am not taking new clients. My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness, the burden of a traumatic injury or complex trauma, a diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, depression, unprocessed grief, or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

You may face sadness, worry, repetitive thoughts, following experiences that are tough to talk about, violence and trauma resulting in numbness, isolation. Maybe you want to dig deeper, to better understand these events and how they are impacting your life now. You may feel increasingly ready to move through and beyond the difficulties you face, to embrace what feels more like the real you. I am trained to work creatively with folks who are in the midst of life’s challenges, to help them process and cope with their emotions. I know how to work with trauma, survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, depression and anxiety.

I work exclusively with older women as they navigate the challenges embedded in the second half of life. It is a stage of life given little recognition and yet one of the most complex . As earlier roles and identities shift and fall away, it's common for women to stand at the threshold of the next chapter ill prepared. When life doesn't unfold as we envisioned we can experience confusion, loneliness, fear or anxiety. Who are we without our earlier identities? How do we let go of all that we must and learn to honour and care for ourselves?

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.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Halifax then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

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.
