Whether you are struggling with addiction, stress, chronic pain, or depression, I can help. Although these four issues may seem separate, there is a lot of overlap and chances are that if you are experiencing one of these issues, you are experiencing at least two others, where they feed off each other. My holistic approach takes into account your life as a whole. I believe in long-term recovery, so I aim to treat and heal root causes rather than symptoms alone. I also help to create sustainable and supportive structures in your life that you can lean on during hard times.

It is easy to get overwhelmed and thrown out of balance in our current world. As we attempt to cope, we may often fall back on maladaptive coping mechanisms that result in temporary relief. However, maladaptive behaviours can have serious consequences. For instance, if you are unable to overcome your frustration using a healthy adaptation, you may resort to overeating and overdrinking. My goal is to help you bring balance back to your life and teach you how to recover from any emotional dysregulation and give you the tools for improved resiliency.

Most of my clients have one parent who is self-centered. That has led me to specialize in ADULT CHILDREN OF NARCISSISTS. Areas of self-esteem that are affected are, not feeling lovable, taking care of others but not yourself, feeling you are bad, to blame, selfish, a bother etc. As a child of a narcissist I know how you feel and it is not good.. My work does not focus only on how to cope better, but how to get rid of the problem. An example is ANXIETY. Anxiety is often an UNCONSCIOUS response to feeling, old hurtful feelings, like HELPLESS, HUMILIATED (bullied), and ABANDONED. In healing these feelings you become less anxious.

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 Thornhill?
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 Thornhill 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.
