I help people struggling with anxiety/depression develop strategies to help them feel even 1% better/less stressed day by day. Client's have told me that thinking about their wellness journey in these smaller 1% steps is less overwhelming. Those 1%'s will start to add up! I am easy to talk to and down to earth. If you aren't sure what happens in therapy, give me a call! I would be happy to explain the process to you. The consultation is a great time to do a quick "vibe check" to see if we click and if you like my approach. If I am not the right fit for you, I will help connect you to someone who can help you!

You are the "strong one". The natural leader at work, in your biz, in your family, or with your friends. You keep things to yourself because you don't want to "burden" the people you care about, but secretly wish you could run away. You feel things deeply & have a vision for creating change in the world but, over-empathizing, deep thinking, imposter syndrome, or anxiety, hold you back. You feel frustrated, angry, defeated & don't understand why. Your self talk is judgey & you just can't seem to get people to hear or understand what you're trying to say. You need a safe place to be real & vulnerable without pressure or expectation.

I am passionate about working with individuals who have concerns around stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, relationships, grief, and life transitions/work-life balance. Support may look different for each person, while some may want to focus on building coping strategies, others may seek a deeper healing process. One of our first steps will be building awareness of your needs, the change you want in your life and identifying your goals to make this change possible.

My area of expertise include: anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, and addictions.
The individuals and families that I support, experience feelings of overwhelm and find themselves ‘stuck’ in patterns or strategies that hinder their well being. Avoidance, anger outbursts, intense worrying, controlling tendencies, substance use, and disconnecting from ourselves and the people we care for, are just some of the strategies we use to cope with life’s stress. We can become deeply stuck in these patterns even at the expense of our own well-being, and/or inter-personal relationships. Luckily, our brains and bodies are capable of great change. Restoring ourselves to a more optimal way of being, is possible.

Life will bring challenges and difficult times causing confusion, fear, anxiety, depression…and numbness. We also experience transitions and losses, not only through the death of people we love, but loss of our health, relationships, jobs. Maybe you are a Health Care Provider with moral injury as a result of your challenging work? Chronic stressors can bring up feelings of fear and a lack of belief that we can cope. Some events and relationships may leave deeper, traumatic wounds. Sometimes it just feels like it is all ‘too much’. Whatever challenge brings you here, together we can work with and process these feelings.

Accepting new clients - I firmly believe that the client is the expert of their story and I recognize the importance of therapists and clients working together in a collaborative space in which to explore any obstacles to growth. I also understand that it can be scary and intimidating to reach out and ask for support. It is with this understanding that I work to create and offer an empathetic and supportive space while acknowledging that each of us have unique needs, strengths, and goals. Together, we can explore how these have and continue to shape experiences, perspectives, and identities.

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
