I have experience working with anxiety, depression, substance use/addiction issues, suicidal ideation, chronic mental health concerns, and PTSD/trauma and incorporate the following modalities into my practice: Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Somatic Experiencing.
Hello, and welcome to my profile. I'm a clinical social worker with over 17 years of experience in the helping profession. From my experience, I believe everyone has the capacity to make changes in their life, and sometimes we need help making those changes. My practice is built on trust and collaboration and I’m committed to working with you to find the best approach to issues ranging from trauma to addiction to sleep. I'm passionate about the mind-body connection, and I have become intensely interested in sleep related issues such as insomnia and it is reflected in my approach to practice.

I am trained in ART for treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD among other problem areas.
Hi there, the past few years has really impacted all of us in various different ways. Having worked in the health care system for a number of years, I understand the dynamics that interplay when we are personally struggling. Our physical health, mental health, emotional health and spiritual health are all equally important. Those hardships, and stresses we face in life, such as financial burdens, grief, loss, isolation, family dynamics and medical circumstances to name a few, can bring us to a place where we might struggle to find the answers and ways in which to cope.

I provide supportive counselling for people dealing with anxiety, perfectionism, and stress.
Perhaps you lie awake at night with a million thoughts and worries running through your mind. And wake up feeling overwhelmed by everything you need to get done. You set super high expectations for yourself, then feel like you can never measure up. You’re living with your own worst critic - that internal voice that’s always telling you that you’re not good enough. Maybe you also live with the worry that something terrible could happen at any time, and that you won’t be able to get through it.

My training was founded in experiential therapy, which effectively treats trauma, depression, anxiety, abuse, neglect, addictions, etc.
I describe myself as a transformational therapist not because it is trendy but because my approach is centred on transformation. Each of us has an internal drive towards healing; we seek to be better than "fine." We all experienced trauma in one form or another, no parent who has ever lived could meet every need we had as children. We all have parts of ourselves that we have cut off, disowned, or devalued. In therapy, we work together to construct a new experience, allowing you to reclaim who you truly are.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
