Psychotherapy literally means "Healing the Soul." Our personalities and the world around us are multifaceted and often mysterious. Exploring the mystery of who we are can bring clarity and meaning to our lives, our relationship with the world, and open new perspectives and possibilities in how we live. I have worked and studied in many areas including social work, philosophy, music, martial arts and shamanic practices. I use a wide range of modalities depending on the needs, uniqueness and preferences of each person. My therapy training includes Existential-Integrative psychotherapy which emphasizes the search for authenticity, meaning and wholeness in our lives.

You know your child best and when your gut feelings tell you that something is going on with your child, it’s time to act on that hunch. My practice is devoted to art and play-based therapies using evidence-based theories and approaches. Clients work at their own pace to creatively explore, understand their own strengths, and implement learned strategies for managing anxiety, stress, school, social concerns, big emotions, grief, gender/orientation and life transitions. I will gently, creatively and compassionately support and nurture your child to overcome their challenges and find their own path to well-being.

What is meaningful to you? What can be different in your life to bring you closer to that meaning? The impact of invalidation, abuse and neglect can deplete our personal sense of well-being and our ability to connect with others. To better find your solutions I will investigate the problems with you. To do so, I combine my experience as a trauma therapist with approaches such as narrative therapy, behavioural therapy, and somatic work using Brainspotting. In addition, if you have an established relationship with a therapist, I provide short term adjective support using Brainspotting and Safe and Sound Protocol.

Education and Learning Disabilities Counsellors

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
