You are tired of floundering - sick of just getting by. You remember a time when life or relationships didn’t seem this difficult. You might be feeling anxious, lacking confidence to make decisions or dealing with something haunting you from your past. It is now seeping into your day to day. You’ve come to the place where you want - or maybe need - to deal with this head on.

Perhaps there's an event that's happened maybe recently or even decades ago that you just can't let go of and it's affecting you in your day-to-day life. Sometimes unexpecting things happen that make it hard to manage our emotions.

Jennifer works with clients who are ready to make a dedicated effort toward change. Many of us had unavailable caregivers whom did not have the tools to provide essential emotional support and understanding which then shaped our sense of shame and other core beliefs about our worth. As children we needed to feel safe and protected, to be guided with the appropriate balance of security and independence in order to develop confidence in our decision making. We learned to adapt and survive with coping strategies that continue to exist in the present which are no longer necessary and potentially maladaptive.

On the outside, you've got a great life. You’re driven, dependable, and accomplished. On the inside, you never feel good enough, that you’re measuring up - or you’re just burnt out. Crispy, even. You’ve spent the last however-many-years trying to keep it all together, but wow, is it ever exhausting. You are looking for a change; you now need to come first. You’ve tried the self-help books, old coping skills and continue to feel like you’re drowning. You want to figure out this whole work-life balance thing in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling selfish or guilty. I can help you get there.

You are likely on this website because there is some aspect of your life that you are hoping to change. Perhaps you have experienced a history of unstable mood, depression, anxiety, or self-defeating behaviours. You might have tried to cope in ways that do not seem to work, or learn skills but they don't seem to stick, and somehow always end back in a place you don't want to be. If you feel that you have suffered for long enough and you have a strong desire to change the patterns that get you stuck, and process and heal from your core emotional struggle we can work together to make the changes necessary to help you move forward.

Are you tired of coping with whatever has you down or stuck, only to have to cope again the next day? If so, I can help you redirect your energy to make lasting changes so you can go beyond just surviving and get back to doing what’s meaningful to you. As a psychologist, my extensive training in assessment allows me to develop a thorough understanding of your patterns and, when warranted, diagnose the psychological causes of your difficulties. From my knowledge of clinical research, I can then propose a treatment plan that has a clear rationale, has worked for others with similar problems, and is tailored to you as an individual.
