Did you wake up today and think to yourself, "something isn't right" or "I can't go on like this"? If you are struggling with your substance use and you're feeling like you are no longer in control, it might be time to consider change. Maybe you are tired of hiding your drinking as a way to cope with your mood. Maybe you have noticed that while getting high works in the moment to help manage your nerves, you are actually more anxious now than you have ever been. Change is scary, but may be necessary for you to reach your full potential.

I am a Registered Clinical Psychological Associate who has been providing psychological services to adults with a range of difficulties and diagnoses including PTSD, anxiety and mood disorders, addiction , self-esteem issues, and stress related difficulties for more than 25 years.
Life isn't always easy. It is full of stressors big and small. Some are predictable. Others are totally unexpected. And some are cumulative in that we don't even know that we are being impacted until that day that we hit the wall and find that we just aren't functioning the way we want. We try everything we know to get through tough times, to change how we are feeling, acting, and thinking, but sometimes we need a little extra help.

For over 20 years I have worked in the field of addiction and mental health.
Is there something in your life you are struggling with? Something you feel is in your way and you are not sure where to start? Choosing to come to therapy can be the first step in a profound journey of discovery and transition. That first step is one of courage, and a willingness to be vulnerable. Every person brings a different story to therapy, and my goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to explore your full self and concerns. You can expect that I will respect your own personal journey and that your personal goals will be heard and worked toward.

Helping people who are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, addiction , depression, low motivation, post partum concerns, trauma, men's issues or sexual health are part of what we specialise in at Spacious Mind Counselling.
We know that life can be very challenging at times and that the obstacles can seem overwhelming when facing them on your own. The therapists at Spacious Mind Counselling have been through their own trials and tribulations and have benefited from their own personal therapy during difficult times. We know that you are the expert in your life and that with the right conditions you can overcome the obstacles and challenges. We aim to provide a safe, non judgemental space where you can begin to understand the challenges for what they are and get back to living a rich and meaning full life. We do this by listening, asking questions and then creating goals with you that are in line with your values. Sometimes skills and tools are needed and other times processing traumas and unresolved emotions are needed. We will always follow your lead and provide insight and knowledge when you need it during sessions.

I have worked in the areas of mental health, addiction and family services for over ten years.
I believe you are the expert in your life and even though you may not know it, you have all the answers within you. Unfortunately sometimes life can make accessing these answers difficult. Trauma, mental health issues, addiction , work and family pressures can all impact our ability to connect to our inner wisdom and happiness. I have found through personal experience that talking to a trained professional in psychotherapy who is kind, caring, non judgmental and emotionally attuned can support the process of being able to listen to ourselves and work towards living a life that is free of suffering.

Change, whether chosen or imposed, can be one of the most challenging of life's gifts. Working as a Therapist in the addiction and mental health field for more than 2 decades has allowed me the privilege of working with individuals who, like me, face some difficulties that are seemingly too complex to work out on their own. Finding the right person to explore such sensitive and personal issues is no easy feat which is why providing an authentic and non-judgmental space is at the heart of my therapy practice. I am accepting new clients for in-person and online therapy! Please visit www.willthrivetherapy.com for more information.

I work with major psychiatric disorders, trauma, emotion regulation, substance use, depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship and work-related stress, chronic pain and grief.
I am a registered psychotherapist with an integrative approach. My counseling considers all aspects of health: mind, body, and spirit. I believe in the inherent dignity and strength of the human person. I draw on these to help you manage your challenges and transitions, and to find new balance and purpose in life. I worked at CMHAWW, where I specialized in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. I have also worked in the addictions programs at St. Michael's Hospital and Humber River Hospital, where I specialized in concurrent disorders.

Addiction Counsellors
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
