Through the activity of play I help children to make sense of difficult life experiences (e.g. divorce, death of a loved one) and navigate the big feelings (e.g. anxiety, anger, sadness) that are often at the root of challenging behaviour. I support children and their caregivers become more able to cope with how they are feeling, develop insight, emotional intelligence and confidence.

They want help with healthy boundaries, anxiety, self-worth, depression, life direction, co-dependency, communication, addiction, relationships (with self, the Divine, life partner, ex-partner, children, family, co-workers), emotional regulation, grief, loss/divorce, chronic pain, parenting, spiritual growth and psychedelic integration. Carrying the past makes current life difficult. Helping clients accept the past, learn from it and then let it go is what I love doing best.

I believe conflict within ourselves, and our relationships are a part of life; it’s how we prepare and respond to issues that truly determines how we move forward in life. Our unique identities inform how we feel, think, and behave. As a trauma informed therapist, I work relationally with people to build strength and skill in handling unwanted feelings and situations. I believe everyone has the capacity for healing and autonomy.

The early years of parenting are wild - the intensity of our emotional experience catches most off guard - we desperately want to get it right with our little people; so the stakes feel high. Conflicts arise as we try to negotiate shifting roles and responsibilities while exhausted, under-supported, and lacking in time to ourselves. So many of us feel incredibly overwhelmed with decision making and day to day life with new babies, and disconnected from our partner because we don't have time, energy or the desire to connect in the ways we used to. It can feel like we are in the deep end, treading water with no end in sight.

Life is full of challenges. We don't always have a choice what challenges we face. But we can choose how we view or overcome these challenges. I believe that we each have our own reserve of resilience waiting to be tapped into. Most of the time we have the strength to face these challenges. Sometimes we reach out to our friends and family for support and that is all we need. At other times, these challenges can overwhelm us and our system of support. We feel alone and helpless. When you are ready for change, let me support you in embracing your challenges and turn them into opportunities to learn something new about yourself.

Getting connected with a therapist can be difficult. I ask you to contact with basic information, your availability and a phone number. We discuss your needs, my qualifications and how we'll be working together. My approach to counselling is informal, but goal focused. Taking on only a few clients allows me to genuinely focus. Rates are per session and results may be noticeable within four to six sessions. Counselling is a safe place to be honest and share with a professional who has concern and the ability to walk you through the change needed for you to be healthier and happier.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
