I am currently accepting new clients. I may be the right fit for you if the following reminds you of yourself. You’ve struggled with not feeling good enough for as long as you can remember. This has impacted your relationships and often leaves you feeling anxious and insecure. You tell yourself you should feel happy, but you don't. You’re confused, feeling lost and like you don't even know what you want or who you are. You’ve been trying to get better for some time. You've picked up books, followed how-to's, listened to podcasts and so on. And so far… nothing has worked.

I hope that I can empower you to choose me as your therapist. What characteristics does a person hope to stumble upon to begin to bare their soul to a stranger? I know that trust, consistency, humor, curiosity, certainty, empathy, knowledge, professionalism and security are key components that would make it easier for me to open up. I focus on utilizing emotions as clues to investigate underlying patterns that are no longer adaptive. There‘s also the opportunity for those who choose to utilize my unique training as both a registered psychotherapist and naturopathic doctor, to approach mental health through a wholistic approach.

I use the Gottman method with couples and I use therapies such as EMDR, DBT and CBT to assist other clients in feeling empowered.
It's not just you. You're not alone! The last few years have been extra hard. Having a safe place to decompress, receive validation and learn new skills can make things easier. We all have the ability to heal ourselves, but any kind of therapy is hard work. I work with families experiencing relational issues and couples who need to learn or relearn how to work together. The end goal is different for each client, but we will work together to get you to a spot where you feel at ease. For those suffering with trauma or anxiety, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is offered as well.

I use an eclectic client-centred approach which might include counselling informed by CBT, DBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, the Gottman Method for Couples and trauma informed approaches.
I have worked extensively with teens, individuals and couples as they navigate various challenges including anxiety, depression, suicidality/self harm, relationship and interpersonal stressors, as well as complex trauma and PTSD. Some individuals are very aware of where they are struggling, which helps us to align quickly and start working together. Whereas others might be new to counselling and really want a trained clinician to help them to understand and make sense of their world and experiences in a safe, warm and supportive space. I offer a client centered approach and will meet you where you are at, wherever that might be.

Relationships can be wonderful! But boy, sometimes they can take a turn and leave us in dark places, questioning our life choices, and thinking thoughts we’d never thought we’d think about our partners. You’re not alone! And chances are, with a little help, the impasses you believed to be impossible are actually quite manageable - and the wounds that you thought would never heal are indeed quite mendable. When working with couples, I draw primarily from the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) model, an evidence-based approach that has been shown to be highly effective in helping partners re-establish healthy, intimate connections.

Are you sleeping on the couch still? Have you guys been fighting all weekend again? Living like roommates? Lack of connection gets old and scary, doesn't it? Or maybe you just experienced the unimaginable - your partner has cheated on you! You don't know what to do, where to go or even what you want. Perhaps there's kids that you have to think of or maybe finances that are so connected together that even the thoughts of breaking up is too much.
Are you sleeping on the couch still? Have you guys been fighting all weekend again? Living like roommates? Lack of connection gets old and scary, doesn't it? Or maybe you just experienced the unimaginable - your partner has cheated on you! You don't know what to do, where to go or even what you want. Perhaps there's kids that you have to think of or maybe finances that are so connected together that even the thoughts of breaking up is too much.

Engaging in psychotherapy is a brave step towards reconciling with one's past, making amends with others, and finding peace with oneself. It's a unique relationship that lays the foundation for healing all other relationships. Psychotherapy, in its core, is a spiritual journey—a pilgrimage into the self. Just as a pilgrim walks from temple to temple, seeking enlightenment, an individual's therapeutic journey may involve multiple therapists. I might be your current one, but perhaps not your first nor your last. Each leg of this journey, with each therapist, requires courage and a faith that transformation is attainable.

Gottman Method Counsellors

How does the Gottman method work?

One of the core doctrines of the Gottman method is that negative emotions hurt relationships about five times more than positive emotions help them. Thus, couples require five times more positive interactions than negative interactions with each other. The therapist will guide clients on how to improve communication and understanding of each other to manage conflict and have their emotional needs met. The therapist will also advise couples on how to repair relations with each other when conflict arises, and therefore avoid lasting damage.

Is the Gottman method evidence-based?

Yes, this method is an evidence-based approach to couples therapy. The method is based on more than 40 years of research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the psychologists who developed the method. The Gottmans analysed decades of data to draw conclusions about what types of interactions are likely to lead to specific results, and which interventions are most likely to lead to success. Studies have found that this approach leads to improvements in relationship satisfaction, intimacy, communication skills, and a lower rate of divorce.

How long does the Gottman method take?

The duration of treatment depends on the specific challenges clients face. Sessions are typically 60 to 90 minutes long, and an average course of treatment is around 10 sessions. In some cases, such as for couples dealing with a critical problem, the therapist will suggest an intensive course of treatment, with daily sessions over the first two to four days. Treatment is complete when the couple is satisfied and has met the goals they’ve set, and when the therapist believes they have the skills to continue on their own.

Is the Gottman method effective?

Through the Gottman method, couples can achieve changes that are real and sustainable. This treatment has been used for more than 40 years; the method is supported by empirical research, including randomised controlled trials that have demonstrated effectiveness in improving relationship outcomes for couples. Like any talk therapy, success or failure depends in large part on how committed the clients are to making positive changes and working toward results.
