I am a Child and Family Counsellor and Certified Parent Coach. I help individuals, children, teens and families move from simply surviving life's challenges to thriving. My work focuses on challenges of self-esteem, anxiety, sadness, bullying, divorce. I work along side parents when they find teens off track and struggling with the demands of our disordered society. I also offer individual counselling where through story, education, and gentle reflection, we find new ways to understand, new eyes to see, and new words to speak.

I believe in treatment from the biopsychosocial perspective. From the biological perspective - pain management, nutrition, exercise, sleep; the psychological perspective - education, stress management, emotional regulation; and the social aspect - relationships, conflict resolution, and more. I provide an open and non-judgmental space where we can explore your life, thoughts, behaviour, emotions and relationships, and together work towards reducing unwanted thoughts and feelings. I also encourage nature therapy, where you reconnect with nature and improve your sense of peace.

Relationship-building and a strong therapeutic alliance come at the core of the work that I do. To me, it is important to create a space that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and relaxed, so that clients can feel open to share. I am able to work with children 7 and above, adolescents, and adult clients. I have over a decade of experience, both in a counselling and teaching capacity, and in my years of schooling I also did a concentration in special education and worked in several positions as a respite worker. I still work a fair bit with intellectual and developmental disabilities in my practice and enjoy this work very much.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
