All of our children are so very unique and constantly changing. Sometimes they need a helping hand to keep them moving along to thrive in their relationships and connections with others; or to develop strategies to support emotional regulation, social skills, life skills, anxiety reduction, concentration and focus, or processing of traumatic events. Throughout the process, parent/caregiver participation is a key component when it comes to working with children. My long-standing experience with neurodiverse children, youth, and their families will provide you with the reassurance you need to move forward.

Even in the best of circumstances change is hard. Unwanted or unexpected change can be even harder to accept. Often during life’s difficult transitions (e.g. grief, loss, divorce, new baby) you’re left feeling lonely, confused and even out of control. Things you once enjoyed may now feel overwhelming and stressful. Many of my clients complain of feeling exhausted, overcome with intense emotions and a general feeling of being "stuck". If you've been trying your best to navigate this alone but aren't seeing the results you want, help is here for you.

L|ife is tough and it often does not turn out to be what you expect or plan. When you find yourself struggling with sadness, stress, or worries, or you feel overwhelmed by problems that you never thought would happen to you, I can provide a safe place to explore what to do next. I will work with you to find ways to manage or resolve the things that are making life uncomfortable or painful. I cannot promise you that psychological treatment will be easy, but I can promise that you will not be alone. Even though events in your life may seem similar to others, your story, as told by you, will determine how treatment unfolds.

Everyone gets a little stuck sometimes. We experience painful experiences that can be hard to move past. We become overwhelmed by our responsibilities and sometimes burn out. We get in arguments with loved ones, and we make mistakes. We're human. If you're looking to get back on track, you've come to the right place. My goal is to support you in learning to balance the conflicting expectations and responsibilities in your life, and also make time for the things that you enjoy. To support you as you explore your own needs and desires and learn to have compassion for yourself, instead of beating yourself up all of the time.

Congratulations, you have taken the first step towards healing! Recognizing that you need support on this path of healing is the first of many milestones. When situations occur in our lives, whether in the past or present, naturally as human beings we begin to feel depressed, anxious, isolated, and etc. Simple day-to-day activities, which were once like second nature, have become very difficult. Perhaps days, months or even years have gone by and you still feel “stuck” – if this sounds familiar, we can work together to learn how to cope and live with a new reality.

As a relational psychotherapist, I specialize in working with individuals and couples who are searching for meaning and new direction in their lives. Based on over 30 years of experience working with clients, I realize that there is no one method to be used with every client. Pulling on a wide range of modalities, including breath work and a body-mind awareness, I tailor our way of working based on the client's needs and issues. Also as a Jungian, I have come to understand the value of working with dreams in order to tune into the deep unconscious currents in the psyche.

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 Shanty Bay?
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 Shanty Bay 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.
