Are you in need of more insight into your personal or relational struggles? Maybe you feel like you're stuck in a loop of destructive behaviors, and don't know how to get out. Maybe you notice distance or tension in your relationship, and need to make sense of it all, and become connected again. Maybe you are ready to unpack and process unresolved trauma, and need the support of a professional in a safe and trusting environment.

“Child and Youth Specialists” You’ve noticed that your child isn’t quite themselves lately, that they are withdrawn, and isolated, or struggling with severe anxiety. Maybe they are experiencing intense mood swings, anger outbursts, or even destructive behaviours such as self-harm or substance use. You are worried because your child won’t open up and share with you. You want to help your child, but you don't know how to. It is so scary to feel helpless when it comes to your child and to not know exactly what they need.

Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, or going through a difficult life change? Are you having trouble managing your emotions? Or, is pain from the past or worries about the future making it hard to experience joy or peace now? I work to see the person behind the problem, to be present with you, and to empower you to make changes where needed or find a path to coping and acceptance when change isn’t available. Given the chance to tell your story and explore patterns in thoughts, behaviours, and relationships, you can more clearly see how to feel better and I can help you to do that.

Is life feeling overwhelming? Are you struggling to find motivation to do simple tasks, or the idea of doing ‘all the things’ just increases your stress and anxiety? Perhaps you find yourself needing to distract with substances, social media, or by binge watching your favourite TV show, only to find that these activities are not actually making you feel better in the long run. Maybe you are already wanting to explore the underlying causes of what has gotten you off track but don’t know where to start.

If you’ve been scrolling Psychology Today for a while, I imagine most profiles are starting to sound the same. I empathize with how difficult and intimidating it can be to find a therapist whom you feel safe talking to, whether you’re new to therapy or not. We know, through research, that when clients and therapists connect and engage with each other, growth and learning can occur. That is why as your therapist, my goal is to create a safe, and non-judgmental atmosphere for you to share your experiences and explore your thoughts, emotions, and feelings, a privilege I do not take lightly.

I work with families, individuals, couples, and groups to provide support for relationship turbulence, grief, anxiety/depression, and life transitions, including immigration struggles. Clients may come to therapy feeling overwhelmed by stress, sadness, anger, fear, self doubt, substance use, shame, and a diminished sense of self or worth. I help them realize that adverse situations do not define them. As we work together, they gain the skills to overcome obstacles and to build positive, reciprocal relationships of value and mutual respect.

Are you feeling lost and unable to move forward? Maybe you need to work some things out with an unbiased source you can trust. Somatic therapy helps individuals develop resources within themselves in order to self-regulate their emotions, or to move out of the fight/flight/freeze/fawn response and into a higher-functioning mode where they can think more clearly. Developing awareness of the mind-body connection and using specific interventions (mindfulness, meditation, tapping, breathing, movement) to release the tension, anger, frustration, and other emotions that remain in the body from past negative experiences.

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.
