Life is full of challenges and transitions, and when these obstacles become overwhelming, certain emotions and behavioral patterns may affect your relationships, career, and sense of self-esteem. As an individual who was raised between two cultures, I am intimately familiar with all these challenges of adapting to a new environment.

I know that it's not easy to reach out for counselling and therapeutic support when life feels overwhelming and difficult in some or in many areas. This is why I work with individuals, couples and families in a spirit of profound respect and compassion at all stages of the therapeutic process. My approach to helping clients in therapy is to create an emotionally warm and accepting space where we can explore what difficulties you are encountering, what goals you hope to achieve and what resources and strengths are at your disposal that you may have forgotten or not be aware of.

‘Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.’ W. Dyer. Sometimes that’s easier said than done though, right? It may not be possible to avoid stress for the rest of our lives, but it is absolutely possible to have the strategies to work through it and the support to facilitate it. My work is centered on helping people figure out ‘life’ - managing relationships with others and self, dealing with big emotions, working through trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, all while honoring and caring for a person’s whole self.

What if you could live a life without such intense emotional pain? To the outside world, you seem to be functioning well. Maybe you put on a smile and go through the motions to get through everyday life, but your inner world tells a different story. Each day may feel like a struggle because low mood or memories from the past seem to be a dark cloud that follows you everywhere you go. With specialties in trauma and PTSD, depression, and addiction, I understand that behaviours are often a way of coping with intense pain. My goal is to help you feel like you can cope with life again.

It is so common, as we go through life, to fall into patterns or habits that are not congruent with the person that we want to be. When we feel this disconnection it can lead a discomfort that makes us want to avoid or distract ourselves from what we are truly feeling. I feel that therapy is an important tool that can be used to bring self-awareness to these parts of our lives. I believe that our emotions are invitations to be curious. Therapy is a commitment to putting aside time to consider what wisdom our emotions might have for us if we choose to tune in.

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 Waterloo?
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 Waterloo 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.
