You’re getting calls from the school about your child. If he even makes it to school. Your sweet little baby is almost unrecognizable. She hates herself, she hates you, and you’re an idiot for trying to help. He spends most of his time in his room glued to the phone or ignoring you. You can’t figure out what’s going on, you're frustrated, tired, and at a loss as a parent as to how to help. I get it. Parenting is hard sometimes. If your child or adolescent is struggling with issues around peer relationships, anxiety, depression, school, parental separation, gender identity, ADHD, and other types of neurodiversity, I can help.

Having kids is amazing and wonderful. And very, very hard. No one really talks about how hard it is, which makes the rest of us feel like we're doing something wrong. The baby you walked the floor with at night is gone. You have no idea what changed and sometimes you have no idea what's going on. That sweet baby has become a sassy tween, a grunting teen, or is struggling in some way. It's affecting your relationship, your work, and (most importantly!) YOU. Your parenting style isn't working, or you're not sure you ever had one. Whether you want to work on you, your relationships, or your parenting, I would love to help.

Sometimes men are great at pretending everything's fine – even when life is falling apart. Trying to carry the weight of the world all by yourself is a sure path to depression, anger issues, self-medicating, lashing out, and increased stress and physical symptoms. Whether you're trying to figure out what your partner wants (what does she mean by "communicate better" anyway?), or you're needing to talk through personal, work, or family issues, I can help you get to a better place. If you're worried that you're the only one, don't. There is literally nothing you can tell me that I haven't heard or worked with before.

You’ve lost your way. You’re not the parent or partner you want to be. Reactions come quickly and regrets soon follow. Solutions aren’t coming as easily as they used to, and you alternate between anxiousness and despair. Some days you feel okay and others, like today, you admit that maybe you need a different approach. It feels as if you’ve lost hope and faith in your ability to cope with the many stresses that have come your way. A new child. A relationship conflict. A loss. And so, you find yourself here, contemplating this next step. You’ve come to the right place.

I have been working in the Social Work field since 2010. For the first 2 years, I assisted those who struggled primarily with their mental health. From 2012 up until early 2019, I specialized in addictions of both youth and adults. Lastly, since 2016, I have provided private counseling supporting a variety of ages and presenting concerns. Issues range from anxiety, as the most prominent, to grief, couples, bullying and more. Social Workers are trained with various techniques in order to relieve their clients of whichever burden they may be carrying. It is my passion to listen and help develop a plan to move forward in your life.

Life can be challenging, especially when you are becoming an adult. Your beliefs may not match with those of your family or friends -- that can be frustrating. You may be questioning where your life leads. Sometimes, crap happens and we eventually need to deal with it. Counselling is an option that can help you understand yourself and others around you. Think of it as hanging out with someone who's going to encourage you to be you.

Living with chronic pain and other physical and emotional issues can make life difficult. You struggle to keep up with the pace of your life. You compare yourself to the way you used to be, and to others who seem so much more active and ... well ... happy. Worries about your health may be overwhelming at times, and some days may feel like a struggle. The sometimes-unpredictable nature of your illness is frustrating, and may be taking a toll on your relationships. You may have developed depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. Sometimes, you may barely recognize the person you've become, or the life you're leading.

You’re not sure how you got here, but you are not where you want to be. It feels so hard to just keep going. Things have happened and you are finding it hard to cope – an important relationship has broken down, you’ve lost someone or something significant, you’ve received a tough diagnosis, your family is in transition. Maybe you can’t reach your partner, or you feel like you are losing your kids. Something needs to change. You feel exhausted, hopeless, and all alone. I see the suffering behind the brave face you put on to get through the day. It’s a scary place, but I know that you can change, heal, and grow.

As a clinical Social Worker, I provide a safe space for individuals to open up about their challenges, utilizing a variety of therapeutic strategies and interventions to help elevate people's lives so they can have better opportunities to live an authentic and fulfilling life. My lived experiences are incorporated into my clinical work to support others in connecting “head to heart” in challenging and dismantling the many social constructs people often feel they need to uphold. As you begin to lean into the vulnerability of speaking your truth, the awakening journey begins.

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 St Thomas?
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 St Thomas 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.
