We support folk experiencing existential crisis, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues (including couples counselling), perinatal mental health concerns and more.
If you're feeling disconnected, distracted, and detached from your life, it may be time to look at why. Why can't I connect, why am I not able to just "get over" my past, or why does it all feel so meaningless? Maybe there are other questions, like “what am I doing with my life” or “who do I want to be?”. It’s okay to take time that's just for you, to look at your life and see both the big picture and explore the often overlooked details. With the right support, you can feel more present, connected, and in control of your life.

I have additional training in trauma and grief counselling.
Maybe you're not feeling like yourself lately (worried, sad, irritable, lonely, stressed). Feeling like this can be exhausting. Maybe you have thought of reaching out for help, but even just the thought of that overwhelms you. Let me start by saying that you are not alone! Symptoms of anxiety and depression tend to keep us feeling stuck, creating negative thoughts of self, and preventing us from doing what we need the most...connecting. What 'they' don't want you to know is that when you find the courage to reach out, you are opening the door to new possibilities. You matter and you deserve to feel better! Together, you can heal.

I have experience working with children, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, emotion regulation, relationship challenges, grief, low-self esteem, parenting, and attachment and more.
Virtual, Phone, and In Person sessions available (in person in Niagara Falls). Sometimes things can feel overwhelming. We can lose focus, motivation, or feel lost. That is okay, and absolutely normal. Having a supportive and safe space to express yourself, without fear of judgement can be beneficial. Identifying your goals, barriers, and your priorities can help organize your thoughts and start the path to healing. It can be tough to look forward when you are feeling stuck in one spot. Recognizing and reminding you of your strengths can be empowering. It can be hard to ask for help, so congratulations on taking the first step.

Everyone strives for a sense of fulfillment and meaning in their life. All too often we get lost along the way. The grind of daily living often leads us to become estranged from our loved ones and we can lose touch with our authentic selves. We can do better. We can have integrity in our relationships and be true to ourselves. We can achieve a sense of purpose in our lives while feeling content and worthy. Toward these ends, help is available.

I look forward to speaking with you about your specific interests and concerns. After our initial meeting, we will have a clearer understanding of your expectations and hopes for this work. At that time, we can develop a plan to help you work toward meeting identified goals for service. Many people find it useful to attend a few sessions and then to put what has been learned into practice in everyday life - they often return for ‘tune-ups’ over the years. Others prefer to attend sessions on a more regular basis over a longer period of time. Whatever service you choose, it will be custom designed to fit your goals and preferences.

Real change, healing, and growth happens from the inside out. This is a process of mutual empowerment that occurs through our genuine relationships, as we bring parts of ourselves and hidden parts of our experience into the light of a compassionate awareness. In psychotherapy we can create an authentic space of acceptance to explore life's troubles with compassion, curiosity, and courage. Together we may discover, become, heal, and grow. Whatever brings you to psychotherapy, it is with respect and gratitude that I commit to walk beside you on this path. "A journey of a thousand miles begins where one is and taking a single step."

People see you as the one who has it all together, but deep down you feel like something is missing, you have feelings of shame and thoughts like "I'm not good enough". You're tired, over-worked, overwhelmed and anxious much of the time. Putting up this facade is taking a toll on your emotional health. Constantly striving to do it all is exhausting and not fulfilling for you.

I believe that anyone can benefit from counselling. We all have our struggles and sometimes talking with someone in a safe, supportive and confidential environment can help to see things differently, develop new skills to put toward problems, and create new meaning about your own personal story. The most important factor in the therapeutic relationship, as in any relationship, is feeling safe and understood. I offer a warm, non-judgmental and open space in which to deepen your self-awareness and reach your goals.

Loss of loved ones, separation, divorce, and aging are among life's changes that leave us feeling vulnerable and scared.
If you feel lost, stuck, or like your world is crumbling around you, you are not alone. Most people experience this when facing significant life changes. An aching feeling and a deep sadness accompany lost hopes and dreams. Times like this call into question, "Who am I?" Your identity feels like it has been swallowed up by the days and years spent tending to life's demands. This makes trying to figure out your next steps both overwhelming and terrifying. You want to feel on solid ground again and for your life to have purpose, meaning, and genuine connections to others.

Grief Counsellors

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
