I have experience working with trauma, anxiety, depression, OCD, life transitions, and more.
Life comes with its ups and downs, and at times it can be difficult to process and cope with our thoughts and emotions during these hardships. Together, we can work through these challenges and find strategies to help you address the root causes of these difficulties while finding ways to cope and move forward. I feel that while embarking on this journey it is important to build a positive and healthy relationship with oneself. Through increasing self-awareness and self-compassion, you can truly love yourself fully and improve your mood and mindset. "When things change inside you, things change around you."

We’ve heard “life is full of ups and downs”, but have you ever thought to yourself “why does it have to feel so hard”? Maybe a new life transition, interpersonal struggles or trying to balance all of life’s stressors is causing you to feel stuck, preoccupied with worry or overwhelmed. Worry due to relationship struggles, anxiety, loss or feeling as though you aren’t meeting expectations can be difficult, but you do not have to hold the weight alone.

These days EVERYTHING and NOTHING has changed. The pandemic impacted us all differently. Lockdowns were heavenly for some and devastating for others. Many are exhausted from the past couple years having to navigate dramatic and unexpected changes to daily life, employment, finances, school, parenting, relationships, hobbies, etc. If the ways you normally managed life aren't available anymore, aren't working anymore, are sabatoging your relationships or are just plain unhealthy, then maybe it's time to take a look at how you cope?

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline, among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
