I often work with clients who experience general concerns, life challenges, anxiety, panic, depression , trauma, chronic pain, and interpersonal difficulties.
In therapy I adopt a biopsychosocial-cultural-spiritual approach that encapsulates the breadth of factors contributing to mental health. My collective academic, research, and clinical work in the fields of psychology and social work has shaped my therapeutic style, which I would describe as warm, compassionate, empathic, and supportive. In the context of our work together my aim is to ease immediate emotional distress while exploring its roots in your unique life story. I practice from a culturally sensitive perspective, honoring the diversity of my clients and their perspectives and experiences.

****NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS IN VAUGHAN/MISSISSAUGA AND PHONE/VIDEO**** "I am not what has happened to me; I am what I choose to become" -Carl Jung. If you are stuck in the “I wish things had been different” mode,” and feel like there is little hope for change in your life; therapy provides an avenue to be heard, to grieve, to discover acceptance, and create a new future right now, as we work together to formulate small but consistent steps in the present.

My clients face a wide range of issues including: Depression , anxiety, chronic pain, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), life transitions, career transitions, relationship challenges and parenting issues. When I first start working with clients, we develop a list of goals that they would like to work towards so that our work is focused and directed. Some examples of goals my clients have worked towards and achieved include: acquiring tools to feel more in control of their depression and/or anxiety, becoming more assertive with others, improving their relationships and feeling more fulfilled with their career.

I chose to get into this work because I understand what it’s like to struggle with overwhelming thoughts and feelings and deal with conflict that feels unmanageable. When we don’t feel comfortable to express our emotions and don’t feel safe enough to express our desires, needs, limits, &/ or boundaries, it creates stress, anxiety, anger, and depression , which can lead to issues in our friendships, relationships, families and at work. I have a deep desire to support others who also long to leave behind their overwhelming thoughts and feelings for a life that is fulfilling, instead of just "manageable".

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Vaughan. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
