I support people with concerns including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, life transitions, sleep habits, and more.
It is often hardest to reach out when we need support most. I welcome each client with empathy and offer a safe, compassionate space to speak as your authentic self. I can support you in identifying your needs and goals; moving beyond the “shoulds” you tell yourself and towards self-acceptance. I incorporate compassion, humour, and realistic life changes to meet the individual needs of each person I meet. Getting to know you and creating a unique plan of support is my priority.

“When the “I” is replaced by the “WE”, the Illness becomes Wellness” – Shannon L. Alder. I have a very genuine and open approach which helps me create a nurturing client-therapist relationship. I understand that amid pandemic life has been very challenging and has intensified other issues for many, but we do not need to deal with these challenges alone. I can provide the support and validation you need to alleviate the stress we are all facing during these tough times.

**Accepting New Clients** I believe that the pain each man goes through is unique to his issues but is not dissimilar from the pain other men experience. Most men are taught about what feelings are acceptable to feel and in what situations it is acceptable to feel them. This can lead to men hearing phrases such as “toughen up”, “be strong” or “don’t cry”. Some men will say “I’m alright” when answering questions about their well being when they really aren’t “alright”. I believe such phrases and answers must be challenged. Every man deserves to be heard and have his feelings acknowledged. Together, we will work towards that goal.

Accepting a limited number of new clients - Sometimes in life, we find ourselves feeling worn down. This is normal. Life is demanding, and as we grow, so do our responsibilities. The struggle is when we don't find a balance to life's demands. When we lose that balance, it can be easy to forget what joy, peace, or fulfillment feels like. Our balance can be disrupted by a job that feels uninspiring, a relationship that feels disconnected, or maybe we've lost someone or something important to us. For many of us, when our balance is compromised, we can experience feelings of anxiety, frustration, and or depression.

Whether it's you, or someone close to you, most of us have struggled through difficult times, had bouts of low mood, and experienced loss or trauma in our life.  In this busy fast-paced world, it's not uncommon to put our needs and emotional health aside; this works for a while, until it doesn't! Using strategies from various models of therapy, I work from an inclusive, trauma-informed, strengths-based approach to assist individuals in making effective life change, learning new skills, and healing from past painful life experiences including significant  trauma.

I am passionate about helping people find hope, healing, and restored relationships. When we go through difficult times, we can lose hope. But hope can be restored. If you are struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, life transitions, grief, trauma and abuse, and many other difficult circumstances, there is help and hope. Most of us want a positive experience with a compassionate, caring listener who is able to give helpful feedback that makes a difference in our lives. Let me do that for you!

Are you struggling to find purpose and satisfaction in the important parts of your life (like relationships, work, or personal growth?)

All of us can be faced with challenging life circumstances that make it hard to cultivate joy and meaning, but all of us also have the potential to build towards a better future.

If you’re feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and struggling with what your next move is, you’re in the right place. Perhaps you're looking to better understand the relationship you have with yourself and other people, gain clarity about cycles of guilt and shame that keep you stuck, and finally move towards self-acceptance. I see you. It can be difficult to reach out for help, especially if you're used to taking care of things on your own. Recovering your inner strength and unique balance is possible, and I'd love to support you on your journey.

Do you feel you’re not fully connecting in your relationships; or even with yourself? Maybe past experiences have made this difficult. Or you recognize the challenge to “turn off” in this tech-savvy world, to “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.

My background is in first responders, though I am accepting clients who are not only from that sector - the clients that I see are wanting to identify a goal, create a plan and work on methods of improvement towards their mental health flourishing. Working together, we tailor an approach that fits you and your goals. I also use measurement-based care to help with identification of areas to work on as well as to see progress and change overtime. My goal as a therapist is to help you achieve your goal as fast as we can so that you are able to leave therapy with the tools to navigate future struggles.

Now accepting new clients While we are all trying to be our best selves, life can have its way of challenging us and we can get caught up in our day to day lives. This can influence and change how we see ourselves and see others in our journey through life. When this happens, it can feel like walls are closing in and can impede positive change and keep from reaching our best selves. I believe we are the experts in our own lives to achieve our best selves, just may not know it yet.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Peterborough?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Peterborough specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
