Explore within. Create connection. Ignite potential. I work with teens (17+) and adults, along with all levels of athletes & performers - from leisure to elite performance. I help clients overcome obstacles of heightened stress due to anxiety disorders, depression, self-esteem, confidence, body image, self-harm, grief & loss, lack of normal routines, performance blocks, motivational issues and life transitions. These issues act as barriers to achieving their goals and keeps them stuck in patterns that don't serve their happiness or success.

Drawing from a range of therapeutic methods, I will tailor my approach to fit your preferences and aspirations, while holding a genuine acceptance and appreciation of who you are, and what you bring to our time together.
I work with people experiencing difficult problems. Such problems go by many names, and may be new or old, but all share the common trait of stubbornly obstructing our happiness. You might feel depressed, anxious, stuck or directionless, unable to steer toward a more hopeful future. You might struggle with the overwhelming complexity of your life, or feel paralyzed by the choices it presents. You might lament the harshness with which you treat yourself or those you love. Whatever they do, however they operate, these problems make life needlessly hard.

We all encounter some kind of pain and suffering in our life that is difficult to manage. My role as a therapist is to be with clients as they reflect on their life, struggles and experiences to in turn foster healing, create meaning, and develop greater insight. While I primarily work with women on issues such as identity transitions in becoming a parent, pregnancy, and new parent/caregiver support. I also have a special interest in supporting adult clients of any gender in other areas such as attachment and relationship pattern exploration, self-compassion/ acceptance building, and adoptive/foster parent support.

In my practice, I work with my clients to establish more acceptance , compassion and connectedness towards themselves and their experiences.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Guelph or for a Guelph ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
