Choosing to engage in therapy is choosing to pave a path to a more balanced, calm, and fulfilling life. I work with adults struggling with a range of concerns including insomnia and sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, grief, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, fertility concerns, psychosis, substance abuse, relationship problems, and generally navigating the stresses of life. I believe that building a safe, trusting, collaborative relationship with clients is the cornerstone to successful therapy. I concentrate strongly on creating an open, non-judgmental environment that promotes client growth and self-exploration.

I have dealt with many issues over the years, most common being trauma, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, stress, burnout , grief of all sorts, and relationship struggles with partners/spouses, family members, work colleagues, friends.
I'm Debbie Good and I'm a well seasoned therapist with 30+ years of experience helping people work through a wide variety of life issues. I believe we can all benefit from therapy as life often gives us struggles and experiences that we need to talk through with someone. I support my clients in working through their challenges in a caring, compassionate manner. In your sessions, you can expect to learn what is happening in your brain and why, and to find new, more helpful ways of relating to self and others. I have extensive experience working in a number of therapeutic modalities including CBT., DBT., EMDR., Attachment and ACT.

Are you ready to feel better? Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a proven, effective treatment to help you work through life's challenges. If you are looking for relief from anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, insomnia, chronic pain, panic attacks, addictions, or other mental health concerns, CBT may be the right therapy for you. Using a variety of tools and strategies, CBT helps us to see how our thought patterns influence how we feel, and how we act in the world. Our thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and our body are so connected - each one re-inforces the other, making it very easy to get caught in a downward spiral.

I often incorporate things like nutrition, sleep, neuroscience, and nature resources so you can improve how you feel within yourself and in the world around you.
You may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed, isolated, or as though you are spiraling downward. You may feel disconnected from the important people in your life. Or perhaps you have a deep wish to live more optimally from the inside out.

Before healing from traumatic experiences, you might feel like you're often in a fight-or-flight state (on edge, irritable, angry, can't sleep) or feel shut down (numb, no energy, depressed, or dissociated).
I work with youth and adults who are struggling with cumulative stress, anxiety, or trauma and want to develop a sense of emotional stability and well-being; they're looking for a therapist who can be authentic. Going beyond traditional talk therapy, I use somatic (body-based) psychotherapy in healing trauma, including developmental trauma - childhood abuse, neglect, or caregiver misattunement. Somatic therapy is a gentle, experiential approach that integrates awareness of body sensations to allow the body, mind and emotions to heal from trauma, so you can feel more connected and engaged in your life.

My passion is in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety-related disorders, including perinatal anxiety, excessive worry, stress, difficulty coping, insomnia, low self-esteem, perfectionism, panic, OCD, and cognitive change in aging. In today's modern world, it is easy to lose ourselves to the stresses of everyday life, which is why a strong focus of my practice is on helping clients enact change to achieve greater balance in their lives.

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.

My approach is client centered, warm and non judgmental. I feel it is important to create a safe space for all individuals. I think addressing the whole individual (mind, body, and soul) is imperative to healing. For those who prefer, I am willing to discuss existential questions like “Who am I?, What is my life’s purpose?, What is my mission in life?” While sitting with me we can explore your connection with a Higher Power(God, Mother Earth, The Universe etc.)

Relationships can be wonderful! But boy, sometimes they can take a turn and leave us in dark places, questioning our life choices, and thinking thoughts we’d never thought we’d think about our partners. You’re not alone! And chances are, with a little help, the impasses you believed to be impossible are actually quite manageable - and the wounds that you thought would never heal are indeed quite mendable. When working with couples, I draw primarily from the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) model, an evidence-based approach that has been shown to be highly effective in helping partners re-establish healthy, intimate connections.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
