I enjoy helping individuals create positive change in their lives and dissolve barriers that interfere with personal success. Therapy provides opportunities to learn how to dissolve troublesome emotions that inter with quality of life and the ability to enjoy the present moment. As a therapist, I enjoy helping people overcome a variety of emotional difficulties, including depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, addictions, trauma, grief, pain management, low self-esteem and interpersonal problems. I help people access their inner strength to help cope with life's challenges and I provide coaching for goal achievement.
Therapy approaches I offer include Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), hypnosis, solution-focussed, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I provide strategies that you can integrate into your life when faced with personal challenges.
I currently host a podcast called "The Dr. Lake Show", which is a platform that I use to engage in conversations about mental health and well-being. I believe it is important to provide avenues for people to have access to the wisdom and knowledge of both experts and individuals with empowering stories to share.
