I support women and children to find effective ways to manage their difficult emotions in a safe and supportive space.
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.

Are you a mom trying to manage it all? Do you feel exhausted, lonely and overwhelmed? The fatigue and endless to-dos can leave you struggling with your emotions and a lack of connection to yourself and those around you. Maybe this isn't what you expected 'motherhood' would be like? You're not alone. I've worked with many women who feel unsupported since having children and in many cases are struggling with anxiety or depression. In therapy, we can process your story, develop strategies that are centered around your needs and find ways for you to cope during this life transition. I can help you feel better.

You force yourself to get out of bed most mornings. The things you used to look forward to and enjoy now bring anxiety and dread. Perhaps you feel a loss of identity. As women , we often help everyone else, while our needs get pushed further and further back. No wonder life becomes overwhelming. Many women I’ve worked with found me when they felt stuck– drowning in stress, burnout or depression. I help people who want to make a change so they can feel that little spark of excitement again, whether that’s actually looking forward to a day at work, spending quality time with family, or an afternoon having fun with their little one.

I have a special interest in working with women who have experienced loss, abuse or trauma, relational difficulties, anxiety or spiritual crisis as well as those in life transitions.
Good conversations don't happen by chance. The best ones make you feel heard, valued and understood. I'm passionate about having those kinds of conversations to help you process your thoughts and emotions, gain perspective and resolve hurts. With over 20 years of past experience both in Christian ministry and journalism, I value the stories people share about their lives to help them to understand, interpret and find meaning from their experiences. I will give you a safe space that brings hope and clarity, so you can reduce stress, resolve conflict, make decisions or recover from loss and trauma.

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.
