Whether engaging in EMDR Therapy for PTSD, ERP therapy for OCD, Expressive Arts Therapy for Grief/Bereavement, Mindfulness for anxiety & Depression, or building on coping strategies through many other therapeutic approaches, success as you define it is the priority.
Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of helping individuals and families find effective solutions that are unique to the individual and best address their needs. My goal is to help my clients find healthy ways to cope with, learn from, and even grow from the challenges they experience in life. It is deep within each of us to want to live better, healthier, happier lives and discover our true, authentic selves. Most satisfying for me is when clients begin to view themselves and their circumstances from a place of strength and empowerment, ready to make necessary changes leading to unprecedented growth and success.

As the parent of a struggling child, you often find yourself questioning what more you can do to help them feel better. It seems like you've tried everything but nothing seems to work. You notice changes in their behaviour and you wonder if it will get worse. You find yourself walking on eggshells around your child for fear of making it worse. You find it scary to reach out for help for fear your parenting will be called into question, or worse, you'll be told nothing can be done. You want to find someone who truly understands what you're going through.

Here’s what I do to help. I integrate key therapeutic principles drawing on a wide range of psychodynamic, cognitive behavior and dialectical behavior modalities, in which I invite you to sit down with me in a relaxed, safe, informal way, and talk. If you've never been in psychotherapy, it can be hard to believe that "just talking" can be helpful. But if you’re depressed, anxious and feeling bad about yourself, you can be profoundly helped by an in-depth conversation in which you come to create greater self-understanding, discover insights and meanings, recognize patterns, and explore options and skills.

One of the most important aspects to my practice and in our work together is to create a space that fosters safety, trust and openness. When you are in a space where you’re able to access your authentic thoughts, feelings and experiences- that’s where real change and growth can happen! Throughout our lives we learn ways of navigating the world. Often we don’t have the opportunity or privilege to learn ways of coping and processing that serve us in a beneficial way. We do the best we can with the information we have at the time...and that’s surviving! I’d love to help you move from surviving to truly living!

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
