Do you find yourself avoiding difficult emotions, situations, and experiences only to bottle it up and have it become an impossible monster to face? Emotions are complex, wonderful, sometimes confusing, but always precious things. Sometimes they help us feel the best we ever have, other times they make us feel like we aren’t in control and feel our worst. Finding ways to express emotions from all levels of this spectrum is a fundamental tool I am passionate about helping individuals develop. You deserve to find joy every day, and feel confident in your skills to maintain it long term.

I am passionate about working with adult individuals who struggle with PTSD and trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, co-dependency, stress management, and relationship issues. Generally, my clients are functioning quite well in their day-to-day lives, but negative thought patterns and behaviours (which may have served them in the past, but no longer are) tend to get in the way of their ability to cope with work, relationships, etc.

Are you open to new possibilities? In order to understand who you want to be, you have to know who you are first. Gain insight and awareness into your situation, and learn to extract the lessons from your past struggles to develop new ways of coping and managing the challenges in your life. From early on, people learn behaviors to protect themselves for survival — but what worked in the past may no longer be helpful today. When basic human needs aren’t met, the outcome is often depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, or even addiction.

Reaching out for help when you are in pain, or wanting to change and grow, is a natural and healthy thing to do. My background as an Occupational Therapist in Palliative Care set me on a healing path that includes the body's wisdom and the whole environment when taking the next steps. I provide somatic psychotherapy for individuals and couples, which adds a potent dimension to traditional talk therapy such as CBT. I create a safe place to allow greater exploration and the risk of change. FOT is the gentlest and most respectful approach to trauma that I know. It is ideal for improving inner and outer relationships.

The resiliency of individuals who have experienced trauma in their childhood humbles me. When speaking with clients with childhood trauma, clients often say that this is the first time that they are talking about their traumatic experience. The reason that they are choosing to address the trauma now is because it continues to get in the way and they want to create change in order to move forward with family, relationships, work, or quality of life. I can help process the trauma so that moving forward is possible.

There are a few things that I believe to be true: 1. Many folks experience their psychological and emotional lives to be, at best, a mystery…at worst, completely overwhelming. 2. We do not have to experience life this way. 3. Most people have never been given the tools to improve their mental and emotional well-being (and every person deserves to have them!) 4. Deep healing happens at the nervous system level.

I believe everyone has strengths, support, and a desire for growth. Such support needs to encompass unconditional positive regard and understanding. It is important to meet clients where they are and strive towards their goals with compassion, while gently challenging beliefs. I believe that all clients have a unique perspective of their situation, which is rooted in their identity, values, and culture. My previous work with disadvantaged populations and clients on their grief journey taught me that the challenges individuals face are contextualized to their sociocultural positionality, identity, and relationship dynamics.

Life can often feel like a ship sailing, sometimes on smooth seas, at times amid a storm, sometimes aimlessly, other times stuck. There are seasons in life where gleaning perspective and insight are necessary to navigate diverse circumstances, pivot in the midst of challenges or find a safe space to process. My experience as a third culture kid from South East Indian decent, international living in the Philippines as a young adult and being in a mixed marriage provides a unique perspective on cultural fusion. Anxiety, depression, grief, neurodiversity, parenting, relationships, school challenges and stress are areas of focus.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are certified by one of the main professional associations, mainly the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and will have a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) designation with their name. Social Workers listed in the directory must be registered members of the college specific to their province. To be listed in the directory, Psychologists must be registered with the psychological college specific to their province or territory.

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given the considerable variation in professional regulation and prerequisites across Canadian provinces, some providers may possess significant professional qualifications without necessarily holding professional memberships or being obliged to acquire them. As a result, they may be selectively included without the "Verified" seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and social workers can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in Canada.

Psychologists have a master's and/or doctoral degree and have passed both written and oral exams. Psychologists are able to complete mental health assessments and provide diagnostic information to clients as well as provide counselling therapy or psychotherapy. Counsellors and psychotherapists are expected to have a master's or doctoral degree in counselling psychology, social work, or a related mental health discipline and certification by a professional association, such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Registered Social Workers possess a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Social Work and where possible must be licensed or certified by the provincial government and/or regulatory college.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in Canada could be between $100 and $200. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. Some types of outpatient mental health services are covered by Medicare, provided these are performed by a licensed mental health professional in the provinces or territory you reside in and who accepts the assignment.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postal code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Professionals licensed by regulatory colleges and those certified by associations such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association are obligated to uphold client confidentiality unless there is a legal reason that requires them to disclose information. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others, or a court order, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
