I have been working in the Social Work field since 2010. For the first 2 years, I assisted those who struggled primarily with their mental health. From 2012 up until early 2019, I specialized in addictions of both youth and adults. Lastly, since 2016, I have provided private counseling supporting a variety of ages and presenting concerns. Issues range from anxiety, as the most prominent, to grief, couples, bullying and more. Social Workers are trained with various techniques in order to relieve their clients of whichever burden they may be carrying. It is my passion to listen and help develop a plan to move forward in your life.

Maybe you are concerned about stress, your relationship, or trauma. Or maybe you are struggling, and you don’t know why. Regardless of what you are experiencing, you do not have to go through it alone. I am passionate about walking through the valley with individuals and helping them learn new skills and find strength in themselves. I practice from a warm, caring, person-centred perspective and believe that everyone deserves to be heard and respected.

As a Christian Therapist with specialized training in psychotherapy, I have seen men and women of faith struggle with anxiety, depression, relational conflicts, PTSD, addictions, etc. I've heard them question God’s love and presence in their lives. There is no denying that life can get messy sometimes! However, one thing I have come to know as true, as a Christian and in my almost 20 years of working with people is that, "The Lord uses Everything in our lives to bring about His purposes." Let's look at Jonah for example; we read that the Lord 'caused' a large fish to swallow him after he attempted to run away from his calling.

As most of my current clients, you have probably been feeling overwhelmed by your negative thoughts, frequently tired, anxious, stuck in the past, easily distracted, angry, unmotivated, and have been avoiding uncomfortable feelings. You may have contemplated contacting a therapist on more than one occasion to learn how to cope with difficult emotions, reduce stress, and to improve your overall well being. Often, selecting a therapist and booking the intake appointment is intimidating, however after taking the initial step many clients report a sense of relief.

What has been on your mind? Anything tripping you up in your relationship with self, others or God? Do you need to a place to talk through the challenges of life or articulate your racing thoughts, overwhelming emotions or confusing behaviours? Being stuck in life can be so frustrating. With no idea of what to do next, it makes everyday life a chore and no one seems to understand. Those closest to you want you to just get over it and move on, but you just can't. It seems that relationships become contentious or shallow and it's easy to lose sight of what really matters as there's barely enough energy to get through the day.

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
