Therapy is an opportunity to increase our resilience and to learn how to cope with undesirable life events. Anger, fear, sadness or guilt arise when life experiences are overlooked, neglected, and ununderstood. Anxiety & Depression is a response to the failure to care for the feelings & emotions of the self. Likewise, feelings of stress and inner discomfort need understanding to be changed. The psychotherapy techniques I use to ease client issues and discomfort include CBT, Talking Therapy, DBT skills, Client-Centred, Compassion, Emotional and Solution Focus Therapy, Psychoeducation, frameworks of attachment, and family systems.

Having a trauma-informed and neurodivergent-affirming lens means helping clients explore how their unique experiences have affected their relationship with themselves, others and their future. My approach and training tailors best to those struggling with attachment-based trauma, management of executive dysfunction, regulation of emotion, social engagement and relationship conflict. I am currently seeing individuals and couples virtually across Ontario, or in-person out of our Bolton offices.

While it is true that every life has its highs and lows, sometimes the lows are hard to manage and support may be needed to regain strength. I provide counselling for children and adults, both individually and within the context of the family. I work from a variety of theoretical perspectives including but not limited to CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems. My clients establish their own goals for therapy and I provide support in defining the objectives for meeting those goals. I believe that my clients are the experts on their own lives and I am there to facilitate the changes they desire.

Do you ever feel like others are judging you? From the way you look, to how you dress? This feeling of being stared at, or like somehow you don’t ‘fit in’, can make your heart feel like it’s beating out of your chest. You may find yourself avoiding school or social situations because you feel overwhelmed by the fear of the unknown. Whether it’s the daily ride on the bus, a time of transition from the world of school into the workplace, everyone has challenges in life that can feel overwhelming. Looking for support is a courageous first step on your journey to feeling more confidence in yourself, and hopeful for your future.

Do you feel like your life is stuck on autopilot, but you can’t figure out why or what to do to change things? This often stems from a disconnection from ourselves, which, in turn, hinders our ability to connect to others and the world around us. As an adult, you may be overworking and engaging in negative self-talk, while children and teenagers may experience a more general sense of confusion, sadness, and frustration with the world. I believe we all have the answers to living our most joyous and embodied lives—we just need to create the right conditions for our truth to shine.

Perhaps just getting through the day has been a challenge for you lately. More than ever, people feel anxious, overwhelmed and uncertain about their tomorrow. As we go through life, we experience breakups, hardships, sickness, failure, and loneliness. My journey started with being born and raised in Australia where everything is said to be, “She’ll be right mate!”. We all know this is not the case.

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.
