ACCEPTING NEW IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL THERAPY CLIENTS. I believe in honouring the person in front of me, making room for you to tell your story, and working collaboratively towards your goals. I work with couples, families, and individuals to manage and transform depression, anxiety, conflict in relationships, strong emotions, life changes, cultural pressures, identity stressors, and more. Much of my work is relational (i.e. with couples, families or groups). I value and reflect on the unique perspectives and needs of every person who is courageously reaching out for therapy.

Do you find yourself struggling with feelings of inadequacy? No matter what you do, this feeling, and the self-criticisms that come with it feel impossible to shake? Maybe you find yourself worrying about the future, doubting your capability to cope with whatever life is about to throw at you next. Perhaps you can even see repetitive behaviours that keep you stuck, but you can't find a way to change these ingrained habits. The degree to which these things effect everyone lies on a continuum. Some struggle with low self-esteem, others depression and anxiety, and trauma can lead to severe changes in many of these areas.

Do you long for friendship and belonging, but fear closeness? Do you get attached quickly but things don’t turn out the way you had hoped? Do you find yourself repeating patterns that you want to change, but are unsure of how, or where, to begin? You describe yourself as a giver but feel upset and disappointed when others don’t give back. You try to be the best version of yourself, but you’re exhausted. Experiences like these can leave us feeling unsafe. We feel lost and alone, desperately wanting change but not sure what steps to take.

My style and approach to therapy are influenced by a holistic understanding that we are a composite of our histories and experiences, the intersections of our identities, and socio-cultural understandings and systems. I am also a firm believer that therapy is a collaborative process of growth and discovery between the client and therapist, and while you are the true catalyst for change, it is an honour to be by your side throughout the journey.

The clients I serve in my practice are women, people of colour, indigenous communities and lgbt2sq identified people. You’ve been in therapy before and although you’ve seen results you aren’t yet at the place you want to be. Feelings of stress, anxiety, stuckness and depression are familiar to you. You’ve been going in circles in your relationships and your career and now you’re ready to dig deeper. Your core beliefs keep pulling you back into old patterns like people pleasing, controlling behaviours, co-dependency, and difficulty prioritizing yourself and identifying your needs.

Everything was okay until it wasn’t any more. You're tired of feeling so stuck, overwhelmed and ashamed all the time and you’re ready to make a change. You’ve probably tried so many times to make these changes on your own but it’s only taken you so far and it’s been nearly impossible to keep from slipping back into old behaviours. This leaves you feeling hopeless, deflated, and weak. But let me tell you something: you’re not supposed to have it all figured out on your own. Really. If you are ready to take back control of your life and you have the desire to do things different -- that’s all you need to get started.

I believe that my role as a therapist is to work myself out of a job. If you’re feeling tired of hitting your head on the same wall or feeling stuck in your situation, I’d love to work together so that we can find solutions to get you moving forward. I want to provide you with hands-on tools to begin to identify why you do what you do and how to make a permanent change for the better. If you’re ready to ask yourself the hard questions and you’re determined to put in the work to become a better version of yourself, let’s talk.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Kitchener?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Kitchener specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
