How are you feeling? What are you thinking? What actions are you taking? Why are these things happening? Those are some of the classic questions asked by a therapist, but you’ve already been asking these questions. The answers are different for each person, and for different points in time. You might respond with, "I’m anxious, or sad, or angry", "I’m troubled about the past, or I'm worried about the future", "I’m drinking too much, or I’m distancing my family". Sometimes the answer is, "I don’t know, but I want to figure it out".

I believe that mind, body and spirit are united. Mental health care includes the whole person. I am trained in trauma informed care of persons who have gone through crisis events (Covid isolation, bereavement, motor vehicle accidents, sudden illness). Our bodies hold memories, especially during traumatic events when the executive mind functions go offline. Using somatic (body) awareness, CBT, mindful meditation, and narrative therapy can make sense of your coping mechanisms that may no longer serve you in the present. Deep listening during my years as a spiritual care director informs my practice of psychotherapy.

Accepting new clients! - Choosing to priortize yourself is a real challenge in the young parenting years. Some days it can feel as if you will never be enough, and you don’t know how to fix things. Everyone needs you, and there isn’t even a moment to pee in peace. The messes grow exponentially… maybe it’s a win if everyone is fed and safe by the end of each day. Maybe you feel like you are drowning. I felt the same at that stage. Maybe you are struggling with caregiving, fertility, adoption or medical issues in the family. Maybe you are an aunt, uncle, grandparent or other guardian. And you just. can’t. cope. anymore. Let's talk!

If you’re feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and struggling with what your next move is, you’re in the right place. Perhaps you're looking to better understand the relationship you have with yourself and other people, gain clarity about cycles of guilt and shame that keep you stuck, and finally move towards self-acceptance. I see you. It can be difficult to reach out for help, especially if you're used to taking care of things on your own. Recovering your inner strength and unique balance is possible, and I'd love to support you on your journey.

Arriving at the decision to explore yourself and your life in therapy, can be informed by a range of influences. A loved one may have suggested it, you could be on a mission to find "the right fit" or you might know you want to create a shift and are seeking a place to begin. Regardless of your reasons, the desire for change and healing are universal and commendable.

Feeling like you’re at a standstill in life? Everyone has a story to tell and you deserve to be heard, validated, believed and supported. As a psychotherapist, I make it my priority to provide a safe space to help you pinpoint where you are stuck and guide you in working through your struggles. This can range from sorting out life changes from careers to relationships and managing secondary symptoms, such as depression and anxiety. You will measure that growth has taken place through an increased propensity towards self awareness as well as conscious focus towards behaviours, thoughts and beliefs.

I believe that all people have the capacity to find healing and wisdom in themselves. I approach therapy through a multicultural, trauma-informed, and queer-affirming lens where you are supported to be the expert in your own life and empowered in the work we do. We will explore together, in a collaborative way, where you feel understood and in charge of the process. I value autonomy in my own life and I want other people to learn to cultivate their autonomy and experience how powerful and intentional they can be.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Barrie?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Barrie specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
