With individuals clients, I specialize in life transitions; grief and loss; relationship struggles; artistic and creative blocks; managing depression and anxiety; and creating a more meaningful life that feels like your own, not someone else's.
Are you feeling stuck in an older version of yourself that you know is ready to change? Do you live with the feeling that there's a truer version of "you" that's dying to come out? Are you held back by complicated relationships from your past, that seem to keep you in a holding pattern? Are you a couple stuck in a pattern that keeps you apart? Often we hit a place where we know we are ready for a transition, but we're just not sure what to do next. That's when therapy can be the most powerful. It's my greatest privilege to walk alongside folks just like you who are journeying towards a more meaningful, fulfilled, authentic life.

My experience includes: Depression and Anxiety; Trauma/PTSD; Support for life changes and transitions; Emotional and Mental Health; Coping and Stress Management; Grief and Loss Counselling.
Individual Counselling is a process through which I meet with clients one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. We work collaboratively to explore their feelings, beliefs, values and behaviors. My clients seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or trauma, working through grief and loss issues, dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. I may meet with a client for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the their individual and unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

Within each of us lies the vision and hope for the life we want to live. Yet, we can feel overwhelmed by inner or outer challenges, fears, negative beliefs, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression . In many years of practice, I have seen the resilience of the human spirit. As a Spiritual Psychotherapist, I work with traditional approaches, as well as those rooted in Transpersonal Psychology, Archetypal Psychology and Shamanism which recognize the power and strength inherent within to facilitate change. My aim is to act as guide as clients address past pain and present circumstances that limit the ability to live a life in full bloom.

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.

I know first hand what it is like to live with anxiety, depression and chronic pain. For me it has felt like a lack of control over my life and, at times, total hopelessness for my future. Even though I still have hard days, through my own personal work, I have cultivated resiliency and agency within my life. This lived experience has allowed for deep and transformative work with my clients. As your Therapist, I will connect to your choice of words, your expression of emotions and body language and ask pointed questions to bring awareness to the root causes of your presenting issues.

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.

When meeting with clients, I prefer to utilize a range of therapeutic approaches that best meet the needs of each client as a unique individual. Some of the primary approaches that I draw from include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), person-centred therapy, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), mindfulness, and cognitive-based approaches. In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I practice from an intersectional, anti-oppressive, and holistic lens to ensure that clients feel safe, respected, and understood.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Kitchener. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
