“It is never too late to be what you might have been” – George Eliot. As young children, we know what we need, want and enjoy. We are less likely to hold back from big dreams, showing emotions or stating needs. As we move through life, difficult experiences and outside expectations often move our focus from intuitively doing what is best for us, leaving many feeling detached from our true selves. Using an eclectic, feminist approach with a sprinkle of humor, Samantha will assist you in assessing and addressing the life events that have moved you away from the life you want.

Are you feeling disconnected from the world, others or even yourself? Sometimes the experiences we face in life can leave us feeling isolated and stuck in patterns that lead to anxiety, depression and hinder our overall life satisfaction. I work with clients from a variety of unique experiences such as (but not limited to) neurodiversity, past trauma, or a history of sexual abuse. My goal is to work collaboratively with individuals to rebuild trust in themselves, others, and the world which then allows for renewed connection, reduced symptoms, and improved overall wellness.

Are you noticing some ongoing challenges in your relationships to others and yourself? Do you ever feel a void, an emptiness or even a cloud following you wherever you go and you can't seem to fully get why? That can be an extremely difficult and painful experience, especially as you are trying to navigate through the world. Unfortunately, most of us don't set enough time aside to tune into ourselves, heal some of our wounds and navigate through our complex layers. This avoidance can lead to some long-term affects in our intimate relationships, at work, with our kids, and more.

Many of my clients seek relief from issues they find painfully disruptive as they struggle to manage or change their circumstances. They have difficulty developing healthy coping mechanisms for their situation, and it is now manifesting in faulty perspectives, assumptions or values. My person-centred approach to counselling focuses on the client by looking at coping skills for immediate relief and then heavier issues to understand the source of pain. If you are struggling to take the first step on your therapy journey I will walk you through some of the uncertainty and help ease your worries during your consultation session.

I am currently working out of We Thrive Wellness Centre in Belleville. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety and challenges in relationships at home, at work and those internal struggles within, struggles of 'who am I' and noticing repeating patterns that aren't serving anymore. One of my favourite quotes is from the Sufi mystic Hafiz, "I wish to show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your being." I generally have a rotating, 20-session space for two clients at a 'reduced rate'.

The journey to parenthood is an exciting and life changing experience. It can also be a stressful and uncertain time that might leave you feeling isolated, vulnerable, and overwhelmed. If you are a perinatal client struggling to cope, experiencing low mood, distressing thoughts, perinatal anxiety/depression, grief and loss, or feelings of isolation, therapy can help. I work with individuals and their partners to help them understand and process these experiences, gain new perspectives and parent in a way that feels genuine. I have 12 years experience supporting children, youth and families with mental health and parenting concerns.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
