I’ve supported clients extensively in the areas of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, substance issues, eating disorders, relationship issues, emotion regulation challenges, anger management, self-esteem, teen issues, stress management, and more.
Reaching out for help, especially from a stranger, is incredibly scary and courageous - the first step is often the hardest. I always feel honoured to join my clients on their journey to wellness and I welcome the opportunity to work with you. I am committed to working with you at your pace. My approach is down to earth and collaborative, always. I strive to maintain an emotionally safe and judgment free space so that you may feel respected and heard.

Are you a teen constantly butting heads with your parents in your search for identity, happiness, and atonomy? Are your parents struggling to learn ways to support you and be positive during this truly challenging time in everyone's life? Parent/ Teen conflict is a challenging time for everyone, and can cause breakdown in the best of us! It can lead to power struggles, thrill seeking behaviours, and at worse conflicts with the justice or social services system. Parents and teens are constantly trying to balance family life and healthy lifestyle choices with societal rules and boundaries. Expectations are everywhere, eh?

Do you have a teen girl you are worried about? I create a safe space for girls struggling with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety and stress, peer relationships and conflict with parents.
I use play and art therapy in my work with children and teens. A creative approach can help children dealing with adjustment issues, as well as anxiety and stress to feel safe to express themselves. I work with both children and parents to help them build healthier and more connected relationships. I have a special interest in children with behavioural problems and defiance. Creative interventions give children a voice to express what they may have difficulty putting into words. The approach I take also helps children become more able to verbalize their feelings.

If uncertain how an assessment can assist a young child, school age child, adolescent or adult it is important to ask questions.
Understanding strengths and weakness is important for success. I believe in a strength based approach and understanding how areas of strength can be applied to areas of weakness. Through the use of assessment tools a learning or strength profile can be understood more effectively and when in school shared with educators and school personnel. Effective learning strategies can assist with individuals of all ages achieve goals.

Over the past seven years I have specialized in providing Trauma Informed treatment for both adolescent and adults.
In life we there are many paths to take; some are laid out for us, others we opt out of, and some come at a crossroads. Knowing what to do can become challenging and giving ourselves the space to explore where we are going or how we got there, can be a difficult process to undertake. Whether you find yourself lost, tired, and or uncertain, know that you do not have to come to these places alone. As someone on their own journey I understand the value of making sense and meaning of the stories we tell about ourselves, as these are the stories that will speak to how we view ourselves, others, and or communicate with the people we love.

You know how sometimes in life we feel like we should just know how to deal? Well I have extensive experience working with people who have felt that way, and who feel like they are struggling sometimes just to make it through their days. I work with issues that are sometimes too difficult to talk about such as: professional burnout, vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, relationship conflict that impacts personal and professional well-being, even suicidal thoughts. I am able to help to understand, and most importantly, help guide and support change in functioning and behaviour.

Each one of us has a need to be deeply heard. To be listened to in a space that is empathic, accepting and without judgment can be a life-changing experience. As a therapist, compassion and acceptance are foundational values for my work. You come with your own unique life story, influenced by your family of origin, adult relationships and experiences. By reflection and exploration, I help facilitate a therapeutic space which allows you to explore the deeper parts of your self and discover new possibilities. I believe each person has the innate wisdom to discover how they can flourish and thrive again.

Our emotions can show up in our lives in so many ways. We can try to push them down, distract away from them, or avoid them, but they always catch up to us. Feeling down, on edge, disconnected from people, not good enough, or stuck in life, can have us wondering what's wrong with us, where we have failed, or why we are so different from other people. We all feel these things; some of us get stuck feeling these ways however. Your anxiety, depression, people-pleasing, confusion, and perfectionism etc., can be worked with so that you feel more confident, able, and worthy to be truly yourself.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Kitchener and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
