NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I want to offer my admiration to you for looking for another option in managing all that is going on in your life right now. I suspect that this was not an easy decision, but it is a decision that speaks about your commitment to yourself and possibly those who are important to you. I would like to offer you a confidential and supportive environment, where you can speak about your struggles without fear of the judgements by family, friends or others who you interact with daily. Together, we can explore new ways of coping, or refresh some skills that have been put aside in the past.

Do you struggle to understand your own emotions? Are you regularly feeling anxious? Overwhelmed? Maybe you are finding it harder to connect with those you care about? These have been some very difficult years. Many of us need to take more time and space to heal. Therapy can help. I use person-centred and relational approaches grounded in neuropsychology. I work with individuals and couples to reduce anxiety and manage overwhelming emotions so that they are more grounded in themselves, stronger and more connected inside of their relationships, and ultimately able to make positive change in their lives.

Do you feel disconnected with yourself or in your relationships? Maybe past experiences have contributed to this. Or you recognize the challenge in our tech-savvy world, to unplug and tune in to yourself and to each other. Our early and ongoing experiences with family, friends, significant other(s), etc impact how we connect and attach; they impact mental health and well-being. We are more likely to thrive when we feel safely and securely connected to another person(s). When our relationships are instead overwhelmed with tension, pain, lack of understanding, etc we often struggle to feel and manage well.

I’m a Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor and have over 10 years of experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I work with adults (18+) who are experiencing stress, anxiety, burnout, and/or experiencing significant life transitions (eg. school to work, work to retirement, new parents, empty nesters, relocation, etc.). Transitions in life can be some of the most challenging times, when our direction, support systems, and needs evolve. While I work with all adults, I do have particular experience supporting post-secondary students, having worked with university students for ten years.

I aim to empower each client, to make choices for their own life, which serve them in the ways that they need. I practice from the biopsychosocial approach which recognizes that we all have complex factors which influence our well being. I believe each person has within, unique strengths and gifts to contribute to this world.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
