Would you like to understand your triggers and what core beliefs might be contributing to your stress, anxiety or depression? For many, the current world crisis is amplifying their pain, stress, grief, fear and despair. As children, we were not taught how to cope constructively with stress and strong emotions so naturally, without the skillset, many people are feeling lost. By learning the skills and gaining capacity, more freedom and joy is possible. Regardless of circumstances, there is always a way to move forward, one step at a time.

Concerns others have brought to treatment include: Depression, anxiety, relationships, step parenting, life transitions, early trauma, senior concerns and exploring one's life purpose, workplace challenges, stress and burnout, losses, communication and boundaries.
I believe that everyone has inner strengths and resilience to draw on. My aim in treatment is to assist in creating transformation and harmony where there is struggle and resignation, in a safe, respectful professional environment. It is about relationship, about developing strengths in the face of adversity, and being present to find compassionate ways to move forward, with renewed joy and humour. The client to therapist fit is crucial to a good collaborative working relationship. To ensure a good fit I offer a free "Meet & Greet" consult before the first session.

Life can be complex and challenging to manage alone. Even with great friends and family, sometimes, it isn't enough. You may not want to burden them with what is causing your stress or something you are trying to navigate or better understand but still want to give yourself a chance to thrive and persevere. You want to be as healthy as you can be from the inside out and you commit to giving yourself that chance.

I specialize in the area of stress, anxiety and interpersonal relationships. Anxiety and stress can take many forms, therefore the treatment approach may vary however evidence based CBT is the most effective treatment in these areas, especially when it is paired in combination with psychodynamic, relational and hypnosis approaches also as needed. Healing is probable, and happens as a result of conscious daily actions and unconscious dynamics that shift as a result of this process. After 3-6 sessions you will have a great amount of clarity and substantial tools to begin the journey of healing and happiness- in all areas of life.
