Challenges I work with include: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Alcohol and Drug Problems, Other Addiction Problems, Relationship Problems, Feeling Discontentment and Dissatisfaction with Life, Fear, Trauma and PTSD, Unhappiness, Eating Disorders, Chronic Illness, Work Dissatisfaction, Anger and Rage,.
People come to therapy for many reasons. A person may have experienced a life changing event. Perhaps a loved one has recently passed away. Perhaps there is a struggle with alcohol and drug problems or other mental health concerns. Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to speak with someone who will listen and understand without judgement, provide a safe and trusting environment and offer professional guidance. Therapy can help you make more conscious choices, reconnect with your feelings and needs and gain more insight into relationships. It can also help you deal with crisis, loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and unhappiness.

What do I really want? and--how am I going about NOT getting it? These simple questions stand at the gateway of personal freedom. Overwork, addiction, anxiety, depression tell us that we have turned away from life's important questions. Therapy can help. More than just relieving symptoms, good therapy allows us--with time and courage--to see our problems as opportunities, and to discover what's really important--living life with a sense of freedom and possibility.

People just like you come to me struggling with relationships - you are trying to get your message across but its just not working, whatever you try you just keep getting caught in the same argument. Others come to me because depression, anxiety and stress is making it hard for them to cope. Whatever the challenge, my clients want a safe place to share their feelings - a judgement free zone, and new ways to cope with their struggles. I know being vulnerable is uncomfortable so I will give you the time you need to develop trust and feel comfortable with the therapy process.

When people begin to feel anxious, depressed or stressed, these feelings can begin to seep into other areas of life, if they are not addressed.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a goal-oriented treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. The primary goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel, based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviours. CBT is effective with many adverse life events, including the following: *anxiety *depression *anger *stress *adverse life experiences *bullying *interpersonal and relationship difficulties (communication skills and conflict resolution) *stress management OCD, and *life transitions and adjustment.

I specialize in working with those experiencing grief or loss, identity challenges, family conflict, anxiety, and depression.
I offer deeply compassionate client-centered services for adolescents and adults. I am trained in the evidence-based models of Psychodynamic, ACT, CBT, and Narrative therapy as well as the Creative Arts Therapies, with an expertise in Drama Therapy (Role theory, Psychodrama, Improv, etc.). I interweave these modalities to best suit my client’s needs. My therapy approach goes beyond talk therapy, to also be embodied, creatively expressive, and somatically based. In this way emotions, memories, and presenting issues are explored and processed not only with words but with movement, metaphors, play, and body relaxation techniques.

Life can get complicated, and I know how difficult it can be to reach out for help. This first step is often one of the most difficult parts, so I hope you are giving yourself the biggest pat on the back as you’re reading this! My experience is with young adults, and children and teens (and their families), who are struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and/or life transitions. I also have experience working with neurodiverse folks of all ages, who often feel misunderstood by those around them, including healthcare professionals like therapists.
