The most important thing to me as a therapist is to be helpful to you. I will have some ideas about that, but I will also look to you for ideas. I will listen closely, try to understand you and your life from your perspective. I’ll ask questions and may offer alternative ways of looking at things. We may also plan for you to do things in your life outside the office, in between the times we meet, and this may involve trying do things differently, and doing things that are difficult. Sometimes therapy is about change, and sometimes it may be about accepting what has changed. We'll figure out together what therapy means for you.

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.

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 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.

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 believe that every individual is the expert of their own life, and you don't need someone to tell you how to live it. In your heart, you know what inspires you and makes you feel alive. But sometimes you get stuck or steered off track by difficult thoughts and feelings. It's hard and it happens to all of us.

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 Lunenburg?
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 Lunenburg 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.
