I am a Child and Family Counsellor and Certified Parent Coach. I help individuals, children, teens and families move from simply surviving life's challenges to thriving. My work focuses on challenges of self-esteem, anxiety, sadness, bullying, divorce. I work along side parents when they find teens off track and struggling with the demands of our disordered society. I also offer individual counselling where through story, education, and gentle reflection, we find new ways to understand, new eyes to see, and new words to speak.

Are you feeling stuck? Anxious? Are you inclined towards mindful and body-centred practices like yoga? Perhaps you've tried cognitive behavioural groups but don't feel that you are getting to the underlying root? I work with adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, life transitions (e.g. separation and divorce), relationship issues, trauma, pregnancy and post-partum. I work collaboratively helping you to make sense of your experience, heal any pieces getting in the way, build new skills, so you ultimately can become more alive, aligned and peaceful.

"Sometimes when it feels that life is falling apart, it is actually falling into place". During our life's journey all of us experience times of loss, despair, and loneliness. During these occasions we are often unable to see the patterns we need to change. I have previously spent many years practicing as a nurse. I came to realize that healing the body was less meaningful if the mind is struggling with personal pain.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the stress of daily life? Perhaps you are feeling anxious or depressed. You may feel burdened by past trauma or a current crisis, or maybe you are experiencing conflict at home with family, friends or at work. It can sometimes seem impossible to find balance, inner peace, and happiness. Firstly, you are not alone, but your struggles are personal, and can feel isolating and lonely. The truth is that many people find it difficult to acknowledge that they are suffering, and reaching out for help can be tough to do. Sometimes, we forget that taking care of ourselves is important and also worth the effort.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
