From what anyone can tell you’ve got it all going for yourself. But, inside your overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, stressed. You've spent a lot of time just holding things together and you're tired. Or maybe it’s your child struggling. To everyone else it looks like they have it all but you are all too familiar with the call from school in the middle of your work day to pick them up. Maybe they have a stomach ache because of anxiety, or they got into another fight. Maybe they save it all for home where they melt down and just can't cope. You're exhausted and it’s time for a change.

I hold a PhD in psychotherapy and practice from a more person-oriented perspective. My clients come to me with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, and work issues.. I focus on the cause of their suffering rather than just putting a band-aid on the symptoms. I help my clients see meaning in their lives and a purpose behind their current situation. We work together to find something beyond the usual, and beyond the typical things they may attribute to their suffering. I offer weekend and evening hours.

At different times in our lives, we are handed challenges, and are faced with adversity. In these situations, we may feel like we need some support; someone wise and compassionate who can provide the opportunity to be heard, and the necessary guidance to move forward. You may be dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, problems in a relationship, grief/loss, trauma/post trauma, addiction, parenting, separation/divorce; or maybe you have just lost direction and feel like you need some realignment. Psychotherapy, coaching, or a combination of both offer you the opportunity to explore difficult or confusing terrain, to understand

At times, life can feel complex and challenging for all of us. However, finding a therapist who is a good fit for your individual needs can feel very reassuring. The therapeutic relationship between you and your therapist is an important aspect in determining the efficacy of your therapeutic experience. I have a Masters in Social Work, and I am a Registered Social Worker with more than 15 years of psychotherapy and case management experience. Although I am primarily attachment-based in my approach, I integrate other treatment modalities to accommodate a client's individual needs for therapy.

What if your or your partner’s anger is actually a desire for a deeper connection? It’s a paradox that angry reactions push our partners/family/friends away when what we need is closeness. Hurt or fear could be behind anger. Or perhaps underlying depression, anxiety or trauma. Anger could be expressed harshly, silently or many ways in between; either way it builds walls. Whatever stands in the way of better connections can be uprooted and healed. Negative emotions and walls of anger don’t have to remain. You can overcome them and build the relationships you have longed for.

Years ago whilst dealing with some health issues that affected me both mentally and physically a mentor/counsellor told me to “change my thoughts, in order to change my world. Because my present circumstances at the time did not determine were I go, but where I started." Hence, I do understand how mental and physical struggles can impact one's life and that admitting to those struggles and asking for help is never easy. I am here to walk alongside you on the journey to healing and restoration.

What's your "normal"? Has "just getting by" become a way of life? As we struggle with the stresses of past and present, living takes a back seat to surviving. We all have a survivor within us - a part that carries us through the bad times and holds us together when we feel like falling apart. It's a brilliant survival strategy. And an unhappy way to live. But what if it doesn’t have to be that way? What if there’s more to life than just surviving? What if there’s hope? From getting back to normal, to redefining the boundaries of normal - there is a better way. A way to stop surviving and start thriving.

Are you tired of living in "survival mode"? Either feeling chronically unsettled or inexpressibly low and numb! Perhaps, something feels missing; an emptiness you can’t quite put your finger on! There comes a time when just getting by is not enough and we can no longer hide behind a smile. Change begins when we decide that "waiting for the pain to dissipate" is no longer an option. So what if you could take back control of your life and live unchained by your history? How far would you thrive if you could tailor a life of your own design, uninterrupted by stress, anxiety or pain stories?

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Counsellors

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
