We are in unprecedented times. As humans, we need to have some predictability about our life and the world we live in, in order to feel safe and secure and that is no longer available to us. This activates our nervous system which can then lead to us feeling anxious, withdrawn, numb, edgy, untethered, angry or dissociated. Many people are struggling with having personal space and privacy if isolating with others or with lack of connection due to isolating alone. It's important to get the support you need right now. Psychotherapy can be that predictable support until the world finds its new normal.

These past few months have shown just how quickly things can change. You may feel like your sense of security and life direction has been rocked. You may be struggling to make sense of it all. This can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, and other unhelpful symptoms. Underneath is a desire for connection and to feel worthy. Maybe you just started feeling that something is wrong, or perhaps this sense has been with you for a while. I want to help you uncover what is going on within you. Through our work together, you will notice what is getting in the way of you being okay and feeling fine.

I don't eclipse the parent but help them to become the most important -- influential and trusted -- force in the lives of their kids. I also help kids/teens struggling with attention and screens, big emotions (anger, fear, grief & shame) and issues around confidence and social dynamics. Often, I'm first approached by committed moms who are at their wit's end. I also believe in re-engaging dads and in helping men to develop relationship muscles they need to help the family thrive!

I often wonder why there is so much pain and suffering. I realized that what we need is not homeostasis or a tensionless state. Instead, we need the right amount of tension for change, growth, and development to take place. I had the privilege to journey with people facing different aspects of the human condition (suffering, grief, loss, meaninglessness, etc.) I am often amazed by human determination, courage, and strength in the process toward growth and development as they face life challenges. Life is full of challenges and adversity; it would be a privilege to journey with you toward a meaningful and purpose-driven life.

Thinking motivates, or is motivated by, physical action.

Dance therapy in L5H reflects a somatic approach.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L5H are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L5H you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L5H and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L5H or family therapy in L5H.
