I especially love creatively adapting these approaches to make them child and teen -friendly!.
In this high-paced world, people don’t take the time to sit and talk things through – especially their problems. I’m a strong believer in the importance of talking through your problems in order to process them and gain an understanding of not only your challenges, but also what’s important to you, your strengths, and your goals. I balance my approach of processing through dialogue with my love for concrete, practical interventions and strategies. My goal as your therapist is always to provide a non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties while also providing practical strategies to meet your needs.

What would it be like if you felt better? This is a real possibility since counselling is an opportunity to heal, grow and reach goals. Are you a teen or adult experiencing some kind of stressful change? Perhaps in yourself, your health, a relationship, a life role or in your professional world. And this is creating anxiety, depression, anger, self-doubt or conflict? I get it. I can help you work through whatever you are experiencing in order to better understand what is happening, to feel more accepting and to gain some tools.

Life can be hard sometimes and can feel even harder when we think we have to do it alone or “be strong”. Vulnerability takes courage. Let us witness that courage, and support you through challenging times. Together we can learn to find balance, tolerate that which is intolerable, and learn to co-exist with any and all our emotions. At J.A.G. Village we know grief, mourning, and bereavement very well. We know that it can be very disorientating. Our role is to help you navigate this new terrain while also supporting and bearing witness to the experiences you have along the way.

Do you feel like the world is overwhelming and that life just feels like a bit too much? Like you need someone to help you unravel the thoughts and feelings that seem to block you from doing what you'd like to do? Sometimes we need someone to help us unpack our trauma, manage the anxiety and depression, and navigate the relationships in our lives. You want to feel happier, more calm, less stressed and overwhelmed. Does that sound like you? It can feel scary to reach out for therapy and to start that process. If you've never done it before, let me know, I'm happy to talk you through what it looks like and what you can expect.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
