A lifelong concern for the distressed and disadvantaged led me to the art of healing through the science of Psychology. My private practice with adults & couples provides treatment for a range of concerns including; relationship and identity issues, depression, anxiety, grief, anger, trauma, dissociation, and LGBTQ challenges. My approach is to understand from your perspective, the difficulties you are experiencing, and how they are affecting your life. I then use an integration of therapy models tailored to your needs, to help you find relief from distress and a sustainable resolution.

Being a woman of color myself, I have served different minority communities (mainly the francophone community, the Muslim community and the LGBTQ community), striving to be sensitive and accepting to the cultural and religious life views of each individual.
We often read, “The answer lies within.” This can be frustrating for some because if it were true, then why see a therapist? Because I believe that while the answer does lie within you, it is buried under other parts of you: the “I shoulds,” the “I shouldn’ts,” the “I can’ts,” “the what ifs,” and generally, the anger, fear and stress that plagues us all. It is my goal as your therapist to harmonize the different parts of you by offering you a safe, supportive,compassionate environment where you can explore all that makes you, you. Together, we will create concrete steps to alleviate your suffering.

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.

As a seasoned therapist, I've helped many people through experiences of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, low self-worth, and relationship-based issues. I provide a compassionate space for you to process what's been hard, while stepping towards more connection, ease, and authenticity. I have a special interest in supporting late-diagnosed women with ADHD shift from overwhelm and self-criticism, to vibrancy and self-acceptance. I also provide clinical supervision to qualifying therapists; if my caseload is full, I may be able to refer you to a therapist I'm supervising, so I can be part of your "behind the scenes" treatment team.

I know that it is hard to reach out for help. Most people feel like they should be able to handle life's challenges on their own. We are an intensely social species, however, and rely on others every day for our survival. Reaching out for help to a therapist during a challenging time in your life is the smart thing to do. Get the help and support you need to get through life's many challenges, whether you are struggling with anxiety or depression, going through a divorce or separation, or worrying about your children.

Are you experiencing overwhelming emotions, uncomfortable physical symptoms or life feels like it is "too much"? Perhaps your behaviour has recently changed and you are finding it hard to make a decision, focus on work or concentrate on conversations. Are you finding it difficult to connect and maintain your relationships and feel disconnected from your friends and family? You have developed coping skills, but certain overwhelming life events (can be trauma) that have happened in your past can sometimes be too much to process. Eventually, we all have the potential to develop a wide range of troubling and confusing symptoms.

Trauma can profoundly impact our well-being, leaving us feeling disconnected and alone. It can create extreme psychological stress in our daily interactions with others, impeding our quality of life. Trauma does not have to be one significant event. It can be a series of relational or attachment wounds experienced in childhood, leading to self-esteem issues, problems asserting boundaries and people-pleasing behaviours. If you struggle to feel safe, know that you are not alone. I aim to create a warm and welcoming environment where we can re-establish your sense of connection and trust in others.

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 Bowmanville?
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 Bowmanville 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.
