Additional certifications in the areas of trauma, separation and divorce and education.
I think of each person’s life as a story and each chapter of each story is unique. Like every great story, our lives are filled with people, experiences, emotions, and perspectives. Some chapters of our stories are more difficult than others and there are times when transitioning from one chapter to the next can be challenging. As a clinician, I am committed to partnering with clients to examine what their story has been, what it has meant for them and what they want the next chapter to be. Over the last 25 years, it has been an honour to help people become the authors of their own lives.

These transitions can include parenting, job change, children leaving the home, divorce, loss, pre-natal and post-natal challenges, and mid-life transitions.
Sometimes life can feel challenging and hard and we might lose ourselves a little along the way. This is when we need to slow down and take a deep breath. Reaching out for support can be a very effective way to feel less alone and figure out your next steps. I provide a non-judgmental space so clients can feel safe to openly share their thoughts, emotions and experiences. I specialize in helping individuals learn and apply new skills and strategies that help make impactful shifts that lead to meaningful change.

I have worked with individuals, couples and families from a pastoral framework for more than twenty years, through a wide variety of major life events such as marriage and pre-marriage counselling, separations & divorce, couples with partner addictions, violence / betrayal, birth of children and the loss of children from serious illness and stillborn births.
Navigating life and relationships can be challenging, exhausting, confusing, and downright overwhelming. In a world where one is constantly connected through social media, increasingly, we can feel isolated and alone as we strive to meet relationship and work demands, while living up to our own personal and relational expectations. In seasons of uncertainty, it is normal to feel a sense of spinning out of control, and struggling with where do I go from here? The thought of therapy can be scary, which is why I am committed to creating an environment of trust and understanding.

My personal “therapist toolbox” includes a spectrum of ancient & contemporary healing methodologies such as CBT, DBT & narrative therapy, as well as a few feathered and furry farm friends who are known to assist with challenges such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief, parenting, separation & divorce, sexual trauma & disorders, and addictions.
Can you imagine if therapy took place while hiking through the forest, sunbathing in a field of wildflowers, chilling with some chickens, sitting around a campfire or simply from the comfort of your kitchen table? I believe that therapy has a real image problem that could be improved by embracing a healing realm which includes mother nature, play and genuine human connection.

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.
