Additional certifications in the areas of trauma, separation and divorce and education.
I think of each person’s life as a story and each chapter of each story is unique. Like every great story, our lives are filled with people, experiences, emotions, and perspectives. Some chapters of our stories are more difficult than others and there are times when transitioning from one chapter to the next can be challenging. As a clinician, I am committed to partnering with clients to examine what their story has been, what it has meant for them and what they want the next chapter to be. Over the last 25 years, it has been an honour to help people become the authors of their own lives.

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.

Twin Pines Psychotherapy specializes in counselling for individuals and families in transition, blended/step-families, and parents. Whether losses, moves, separation/divorce, blending a family, or new mental health or developmental diagnoses – it’s during these times that we can feel most lonely and lost. Life’s journey is rarely a straight path, and we often find ourselves in places we never imagined. Grief and hardship are part of life, and many of us are without a ‘village’ and the support we need to weather these storms and changes.

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.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
