Therapy can help in many ways – providing emotional support, understanding in new ways and changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. I work to transform difficult emotions and help clients to feel relieved, hopeful, and clearer about the way forward. I draw from a number of therapeutic approaches including the person-centered humanistic approach, family systems, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed practices, narrative and solution-focused therapies, CBT, the Gottman method, and mindfulness and compassion-centered approaches.

A lot of the time, our first instinct is to seek support when we may feel we are drowning in our current struggles. The first step is always the hardest, in where we fear we will not be understood. My belief is that because each one of us is unique, our struggles and thus our journey in healing will be too. I aim to be an anchor in these turbulent times and be a beacon of unfiltered, unconditional and non-judgemental space in exploring our internal processes. In collaboration, we can address motivational, acceptance, behavioural, cognitive, social, biological and cultural aspects that can work in tandem in maintaining our struggles.

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."

I work with children and adults who are experiencing conflict or distress associated with loss, transition or change; who may find some feelings or experiences too overwhelming or difficult to communicate using words alone, or for those who may avoid feelings or confuse issues in their use of words. The therapy I provide may suit for those who suffer from problems that stem from body related issues, concern about body image, or issues with trust. Some of my clients have impairment or trauma that may hinder the capacity for them or others to acknowledge and understand personal areas of strength and weakness.

My goal is to foster a safe therapeutic environment for clients struggling with mood, relationships, addictions, and school/work-related stress. Setting an empathic, yet structured tone to each session, I am able to guide those seeking resolution toward discovering their own solutions. I have found that by helping clients build a deeper awareness of their mind-body connection, they develop greater self-regulation, a healthier sense of self and more satisfying interpersonal relationships.

No concern or thought is too small or large to be explored in therapy. I understand that life can bring us suffering, pain, loss, and other experiences that we oftentimes struggle to manage. My goal is to provide a safe space to explore & process your thoughts, emotions, & life situations, no matter how big or small. I understand that each individual's story is unique, & I allow for discovery to occur in a fully confidential, non-judgemental space.

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?

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 Woodbridge?
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 Woodbridge 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.
