The human brain is an amazing tool with incredible possibilities. However, sometimes this wonderful tool can generate states and thoughts that are not as useful to us. Luckily our mind is also flexible, which means that with some intentional adjustments we can often change how we think, feel and behave. In a way, therapy is all about getting to know ourselves and using our mind’s own tricks to our advantage, to facilitate the changes we want to see.

Are you experiencing a life transition that is overwhelming and anxiety provoking? Are you feeling frustrated with conflict or poor communications in your relationship or family? There are many reasons to come to counselling. Change is inevitable. Counselling provides an opportunity to shape the change with intention and at a faster rate than if you simply allow time to make the change for you.
If you're struggling with mental health challenges, it can feel like your life is out of control and falling apart. It's not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, scared, hopeless, helpless and alone. Or to feel numb. We all experience occasional difficulties in response to life’s challenges, but there are times when we feel particularly stuck or discouraged and we need some extra support. It can be difficult to share your most private experiences with someone new, especially if those experiences have caused you shame, and I have a deep respect for those who are willing to pursue counselling.

Many people feel lost in the rhythms and uncertainties of life. Feelings of emptiness, loneliness, hurt, confusion and anxiety can overwhelm our ability to live life deeply. Sometimes our usual patterns of living are no longer working. Other times sudden changes, such as world events, a loss, life transition, trauma, or a diagnosis swamp our emotional resources. The surfacing of past events such as abuse, grief, or accidents may stop us in our tracks. These are just some of the situations that can create barriers to living the life we want, and send us searching for deeper meaning, connection and belonging.
I am a Licensed Counseling Therapist candidate, (RCT-C) whose specific psychotherapeutic training is anchored in Drama therapeutic processes. This is a therapeutic approach that utilizes talk therapy and engages personalized creative expression for catharsis. It is an innovative approach for those who may be stuck in old patterns or need to explore new ways to better communicate them. Clients explore alternative solutions to challenges by rehearsing alternative cognitive/behavioral responses using “what if ” imagination. Engaging an element of guided, gentle imaginative physicality helps better express what might be suppressed.
