I understand life can be messy, stressful and confusing and I know seeking support is not always easy. I welcome you and I honour your courage to reach out and take the first step. I offer a compassionate, client-centered creative approach to therapy where I strive to create a safe, warm and non-judgmental space.

Kameela has training in a multiple modalities for therapy, including CBT , ACT, Hypnotherapy, and the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy Level 1 & 2.
When we’re caught in the struggle we can feel hopeless. We may notice things that use to help aren’t helping. We may have lost motivation to try, as a result of this. It’s common to get caught in the suggestions of others, or online searching for something that may help. We may not know where to start but know, we don’t want to keep feeling/thinking/living as is. Therapy services can help us find a starting point, then develop a plan and act on making change, all while supported by a regulated professional in the field.

Adolescence is an exciting and sometimes difficult time in the young person life. As they grow and mature they develop a deeper understanding of themselves, friends, family and the world around them. In individual therapy, with adolescents, we provide a safe and relaxed environment for the young person to explore who they are. We walk with them as they strive towards the person they want to be in their journey to adulthood.

Perhaps you can't get out of bed, or worry about things from the past, present and future. Your mind is fixated on problems. Nothing seems to interest you anymore. Your self criticism is at an all time high and you can't get unstuck. Maybe you are having anxiety or panic attacks. Or you feel numb, nothing. You wonder if you have anxiety or depression. Treating these moods are my speciality. I offer what many consider to be the gold standard of treatment cognitive behavioural therapy. I've got a ton of empathy and a ton of tools in my toolbox. I'd be honoured to pull up a chair and help you sort it through.

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
