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?

I understand and admire the courage it takes to reach out for support and am committed to respecting your time, effort, and trust. Our work together will be based upon transformational approaches that get to the root of the symptoms and concerns you are experiencing so that lasting change becomes possible. I believe our symptoms make perfect sense when they are better understood and, at one time, they served a helpful and protective purpose. Together, we will explore the unconscious learnings and narratives that are holding you back and find the meaningful growth you are looking for.

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.

Aimee’s goal is to create a supportive space for this wisdom to come forward, fostering healing and resilience that extends beyond the therapy space. Aimee’s individual work with children and youth is complimented by evidence-based parental consultation; equipping caregivers with tools to better understand their child's behaviour, strengthen family bonds, and co-create solutions to problems.

I work with individuals, couples and families through an adult attachment lens, trained and Certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Because we are so important to each other and feeling safely, emotionally connected is our survival as humans, we tend to use strategies we learned in our earliest relationships with our caregivers. We all fear the universal anxiety of abandonment or rejection and are wired to monitor our relationships for security. The ways we cope with our vulnerability when these fears get triggered can push us into negative patterns with ourselves and others. Learn to trust our needs and send clear signals.

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.

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.

You're not sure when it happened but all of a sudden you don't recognize the person sleeping next to you. It's frightening and heartbreaking to think that this could be the end of your relationship. Maybe it started after the kids were born or maybe you're wondering if you're not as compatible as you thought. There's this distance between you that can no longer be ignored. You've become simple roommates but you want so much more from your relationship.
