" If you are still breathing then there is more right with you than wrong." - John Kabat Zinn. Helping clients connect to their strengths and to then leverage these traits in service of personal goals of health and happiness briefly describes my orientation to counselling work. My professional training and experience in both business and healthcare, and my personal life path have informed a broad understanding of the challenges faced in living and how to best engage these challenges successfully.

I have been a registered social worker and psychotherapist living and working in Lanark County for almost 20 years. I feel counselling is a collaborative process, empowering you to accomplish your mental health and wellness goals. Together, we will develop an individualized plan, giving you the skills and tools needed to achieve those goals. Sometimes it is also helpful to simply be heard and validated. My main areas of focus include anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, stress and adjustment, substance use, relationship, irritability and anger, and family violence.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with a passion for working with the neurodivergent population. As someone who only came to understand my own neurodivergency in my late 20s, I am all too familiar with the often-unique trials and tribulations that can arise throughout the lives of neurodivergent people (in addition to the often exceptional capabilities that can be a huge advantage in many facets of life!). I typically work with those struggling with general and social anxiety, depression, screen addictions, task avoidance, acquired brain injury, or self-advocacy.

All too often, when we experience painful thoughts, feelings or sensations we respond in ways that are self-defeating and self-destructive. Over time, these habitual response patterns can manifest in a variety of ways such as anxiety, depression, phobias, disordered eating or addiction. Psychotherapy can help you with the immediate problem or situation you are facing. More importantly, it can help you gain insight as to the root cause of your emotional pain, to come to a place of self- acceptance and self-compassion, and to adopt positive coping skills in order to live a more engaged and meaningful life.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Perth or for a Perth ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
