Having been a client myself many years ago, I know what it's like to struggle with anxiety, depression and loss.
After having worked in various mental health care settings, I am excited to now focus on my passion for individual counselling. I provide evidence-based therapy to youth and adults and I have a special interest in working with those who experience anxiety, depression , grief and postpartum mood difficulties. I have specialized skills and training in cognitive-behavioural therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy. I take a hollistic approach when it comes to helping my clients make change and I believe that when client’s challenges and strengths are validated in a supportive and therapeutic space, long lasting change is possible.

Un-controlled emotions can sabotage areas of our lives. Are you consistently angry? Or have anxiety and you're losing an appetite for life? Angry outburst can leave you embarrassed or potentially harm important relationships. You may feel a sense that life is out of control when you lash out, especially if it's towards people who didn't deserve it. High anxiety on the other hand can lead to insomnia, depression and the inability to cope with every day life. You may be asking, "Can I ever feel normal again?"

A Spiritual Health Therapy Session combines psychology with spirituality. Sometimes you'll do the talking, while I hold a safe space for you to let it all out. Other times, I'll take the lead and offer guidance, on any subject that is relevant or pressing. We can discuss physical ailments and their root cause, depression , anxiety, trauma, fears, blocks, sexuality, relationships, self love, and the lack thereof. We’ll dig into your subconscious programming and understand the makings of your challenges, behaviours, and patterns. This is my invitation to you to begin your healing journey, and to stop the cycle of simply coping.

I have extensive experience working with those experiencing stress, depression , anxiety, long-standing health issues, sudden/unexpected life events, trauma, low self-esteem, caregiver burnout, criminal legal difficulties and difficulties with substance use.
UPDATE: I am currently accepting new clients for both virtual and in-person counselling. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for clients to express their worries and difficulties. I will help you tap in to your existing strengths and we will work together to practice new coping skills to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. Sometimes life's stressors make us feel like a pressure cooker and we need to "release some of the steam" so that we can cope. Therapy sessions are the perfect place to do this without worrying about overburdening friends and family.

When people of any age go through stressors and trauma, it is common to feel like life is falling apart. In my own life journey I have experienced traumas, serious illnesses, and deaths of people closest to me. I know what it is to feel depressed and alone. I know what it’s like to grieve and feel like no one understands. My passion is to help people navigate through trauma and difficult situations, and feel a sense of peace and healing. Everyone’s journey is different and unique, so there is not a cookie cutter approach that’s right for every individual.

I know what works against anxiety, depression , and ADHD.
Racing heart, shaking hands, breathlessness, and an urgent sense of imminent danger are some of the signs of anxiety. Some people have heart palpitations or flutters, prickling sensations, choking sensations, dizziness or nausea. It's important to rule out medical factors, but if a doctor has told you that your symptoms are being caused by stress or anxiety, know that this is a highly treatable condition and it doesn't mean you're weak or crazy. In fact, feeling like you're losing your mind and having difficulty focusing are features of extreme anxiety! We can address this.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Barrie. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
