Have you ever listened to how you speak to yourself? Do you hear yourself saying things like, “I’m stupid”, “I’m not good enough”, or “no one likes me”. Core beliefs are deeply held assumptions we have about ourselves, the world & those around us and they become the lens through which we see everything & everyone, creating unrealistic expectations that leave us feeling sad, disappointed, & unworthy. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, negative self-image or would like to improve your relationship with yourself and others, it's time to challenge that negative inner voice!

It's not just you, life HAS gotten harder in the last few years. If you've been powering through, staying strong and carrying on, but now you're barely getting by and you're tired of feeling like you're not really living your life, it might be time for outside support. The benefit of therapy is that it's a time where you get to focus on yourself, to look at your life, and to get an outside perspective on how it could be different. You don't have to just endure, with the right support, you can heal from the past, and move forward towards a better future.

Many people wonder what is a “normal” amount of anxiety considering the current state of the world. Frequent hand-washing and social distancing cannot stop the panicky thoughts that flood our day-to-day lives and can potentially trigger pre-existing anxiety, depression, trauma that people are already facing.

I support youth and adults with processing and healing from trauma, stressors, and challenging life experiences. These stressors show up in our bodies in several ways which may include anxiety, chronic pain, health difficulties, sleep disturbance, etc. or just not feeling yourself. The folks I support may have experienced childhood trauma or attachment difficulties, or they may be experiencing increased anxiety and stress due to work, relationships, school or more recent challenging life experiences. I strongly believe in the youth’s caregiver(s) involvement in therapy process to better support their youth outside therapy sessions.

Please contact me if I can help you shed light on your own adoption experience.
I chose social work as a career because I believed in the founding principles of the profession such as the dignity and worth of every human being and I support his/her right to self-determination. I work with all participants in ADOPTION to achieve their full identity as individuals and as family members. I assist expectant birth parents in considering the impact on their own lives of making and refining an adoption plan for their child. I prepare prospective adoptive parents for the role and special tasks of adoptive parenthood.

Adoption Counsellors
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
