Anxiety, depression and stress leave you feeling like you just aren't yourself. It's hard to get out of bed, stay focused, concentrate, manage irritability, low energy and racing heart rate. Everything feels like such a struggle! You are not alone! With 20 years of experience, I have helped clients to resolve painful symptoms, increase their resilience, and improve their coping skills . I have a special interest in working with first responders, victim services, clergy, teachers, and medical personnel. My approach is non-judgemental, empathic, and collaborative with a focus on meeting the individual needs of each client.

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.

Many people come to therapy wondering “what is wrong with me”? It is my view that the real question is "what has happened in your life that has impacted your beliefs about yourself and your ability to cope with stressful life events"? You may notice that you seem to automatically react to situations in a way that you don't necessarily choose and question if you will ever be able to change. If you have experienced highly stressful and/or traumatic events then you will benefit from a therapeutic approach that mindfully explores your personal experiences and strengthens your resiliency to respond rather than react.

The ripple effect of addiction and mental health issues can hold us hostage, interfering in our ability to live fulfilling lives and develop meaningful connections with others. Many harbour a sense of shame reflective of stigma which serves to silence and with that dismiss both the severity and prevalence. It is common to have developed and maintained coping mechanisms that no longer serve a purpose yet have become habitual and with that familiar. Therapy is a place where thoughts and feelings are explored, validated, and with that normalized. Healing occurs through self-discovery and the sense of empowerment that accompanies this.

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.
