My ideal clients range in age from adolescents through adulthood, including couples and families. They may have a past history of trauma or grief, or perhaps they are presently struggling with symptoms of ADHD, life changes, or a breakdown of a key relationship. They may be feeling completely overwhelmed and unsure where to go next. They will be open to trying new ideas to help them on the path to feeling better, but will not be worried about talking to me when certain strategies that do not work for them, as they will know it is best that we use techniques that they are comfortable with and will use.

My specialty is listening, assisting decision making and being a support. If you would like to make an action plan, change, create and follow through with goals, we can work together to make that happen. I provide individual and group counselling to build confidence, self-image, communication and friendship/social skills. I use the interventions of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, (CBT) to treat depression, anxiety, youth/parent relationships, ADHD, and stress by addressing thinking and by changing behaviours to support your life.

Sometimes life's challenges or transitions can be overwhelming for a person or family to solve on their own. Counselling provides support as you adjust to transitions such as those involving grief and loss or separation/divorce. I utilize diverse theoretical approaches in my counselling practice, drawing upon my training and experience in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples and Family Therapy, trauma-informed and attachment issues, play therapy, and mindfulness techniques.

My ideal client is open to the idea of therapy, but might need a patient and welcoming therapist to help them open up. They are looking for a therapist that feels like an old friend, someone they can say anything to. They might be looking to improve relationships in their life, build confidence and self-worth, or shift some long-standing habits. Maybe they are going through a transition or a loss and need support through the changes. I am particularly passionate about supporting teenagers, parents, elders, folks dealing with body image issues, and couples.

If you are ready for things to feel different, and know that some compassionate accompaniment would help, I'm here to support you. If you often feel overwhelmed by the demands of life, and find it difficult to connect with other people and your own sense of self, let's explore together. Maybe you are facing mental or physical pain, or you notice patterns of unhealthy behaviours or relationships, or you're not coping well with the burden of grief. If you have a sense that there's got to be another way to live, it may benefit you to work with a somatic therapist and tap into the wisdom and capacity of your own nervous system.

I see therapy as a creative process, co-created by the therapist and the client. I am influenced by Jungian psychoanalysis, and I have received additional post-graduate training in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), a cutting-edge and evidence-based type of psychotherapy that focuses on working with sub-personalities to reduce inner conflict, heal trauma, and restore balance to the personality system. IFS has been proven effective in treating a wide range of psychological issues. I love IFS because while it is evidence-based, it also offers a spiritual component to treatment, which can be very helpful for some people.

I am a Registered Psychologist with Lesley Hartman and Associates, and I work with individuals facing a wide range of issues and challenges. I am currently accepting new clients for psychoeducational assessments which are designed to evaluate and better understand difficulties with learning, academic performance, cognitive functioning, executive functioning, attention/concentration (e.g., ADHD), and can help clarify the nature of social, emotional, and/or behavioural challenges. Many individuals, both children and adults, can experience difficulties such as these which can have far-reaching effects.

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 Head of Chezzetcook?
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 Head of Chezzetcook 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.
