Anxiety and depression are often our body's check engine light! Every person is a puzzle and very often, the variables of our life and our own negative patterns contribute to the puzzle pieces not fitting together. If you have never tried counselling, it can be a scary idea... trying something new always is! But what if counselling can help you build a life that you don't want to run away from? It is possible to learn new skills, create new tools and strengthen your relationships! If you feel like you are planted in the darkness and you want to grow from where you are right now, this is the place for you!

I work with all stages of the life cycle with a particular focus on children, youth and families. I help individuals figure out what goals they wish to achieve and support them to make a plan of how to get there. It is wonderful to talk to family and friends but they are often not "neutral" in terms of the support they provide. Having someone to talk to outside that circle to listen, reframe what is going on and offer strategies can be invaluable!

Feeling overwhelmed and putting heart racing pressure on yourself to be a version of you that you think you "should be" is a slippery slope that can leave you feeling depleted, irritable and full of shame. It's important to understand our emotions to know what to do with them and with a million competing demands on your brain and your time it's hard to take a breath to figure it out! The thought that we don't have it all together when it seems like everyone else has all the things figured out makes to you want to hide in your bed tucked under the blankets (even though sleep is a dream) stuck in a nasty spiral of failure.

At times, our distress can be overwhelming but when we walk together it builds strength. The therapeutic relationship is an important aspect which will strengthen as we navigate your present concerns. As we delve deeper into the presenting issue there’s the consideration of your own strengths, lived experiences, culture, and background. These aspects are taken into consideration when establishing treatment and goals for treatment.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to blossom” -Anais Nin. I can appreciate how difficult it is to make the first steps in entering into a therapeutic relationship. Telling our stories takes tremendous courage and strength. We can trick ourselves into believing that it would be easier to remain silent. We all hit a point in our lives where we need extra guidance, a genuine ear, or a safe place to open up.

I have over 25 years of experience providing counselling and psychotherapy with individuals facing challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues/ sep/divorce, trauma, stress and anger, etc.
Sometimes we need someone to talk things through with so we don’t end up feeling stuck, overwhelmed or isolated. Trying to go it alone or ‘tough it out’ can lead to increased anxiety, depression and stress or other symptoms and behaviours that can cause additional challenges in our lives and relationships. Working together, we can find new ways for you to problem-solve, identify strengths, deepen self-awareness, manage feelings and reactions and tap into your inner wisdom to promote positive change and healing.

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.
