When we’re facing a major life crisis or wanting to unpack the trauma of our childhood, anxiety and depression often get in the way and create a form of paralysis. In such painful situations how change can occur is extremely difficult to imagine. Psychotherapy is an organic process to help us change; seek our authentic self, develop our relationships with others, and to discover how to regulate our nervous system. We can relearn how to play i.e., by uncovering our (temporarily) lost sense of joy. We can reframe and update the self so as to create tools helping us navigate life’s beauty and paradoxes!

How many nights do you spend doom-scrolling your phone because you’re too stressed to sleep? Maybe you’re burned out from always trying to get things perfect at work, school, home… well, everywhere, right? Yet your best never seems to be enough. Maybe you’re anxious, caught in a loop of racing thoughts and pounding heartbeats that keep you in a constant fight or flight response. Have you noticed things are getting “bad” again, and you feel dragged down by the relentless irritability, heaviness, or numbness of depression?

I am a Registered Social Worker and have over 18 years of experience working with individuals with complex mental health/addiction issues. I provide professional and confidential counselling to address a number of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, life transitions, relationship issues.

My counselling interests include anxiety, addictions, career guidance, chronic illness, depression, sexuality, self-image, grief, loss and bereavement, stress and life transitions, and behavioural / emotional issues due to anger, shame, guilt, low self-esteem, fear, pain, worthlessness and trauma.
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.

Early life experiences can shape the way we think and feel about ourselves, and influence our way of being in the world. To get through difficult times, we put strategies in place, and while they're helpful at the time, they can long overstay their welcome and usefulness. Psychotherapy can help make sense of what was, what is and what's possible, making space for positive change. It can assist people struggling with depression, anxiety, anger or simply being stuck, by bringing awareness to the patterns and issues that have been standing in the way of living a fuller life.

Many of us these days are feeling depressed and/or anxious about life and how to move forward. I know that it requires courage to trust another with your story, but there is so much to be gained from speaking about it.
