Substance use, trauma and mental health issues can put a significant dent in someone's quality of life. From being uncomfortable with how much you are using, or how it is affecting your life, to wishing you could shut your brain off; to being suicidal or overdosing, or hurting yourself. Where do you start? Talking to someone who has seen, and helped with these things before, can be immensely relieving. If your teenager is going through these problems, it is also relieving to know they are talking to someone about them. Trying to speak teenager and parent at the same time can be challenging.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not accepting any new clients at this time. I am a registered member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. My approach draws from several different schools of thought, such as cognitive-behavioural (identifying and modifying thought patterns that influence behaviours and underlie psychological distress), psychodynamic ( discovering what may be going on in the unconscious mind), systemic (fostering an understanding of interactional patterns/dynamics), based on each client's individual needs. I also offer EMDR to help individuals process trauma.

Research towards my book "Multidimensional Healing" soon to be published by Austin Macauley revealed that unresolved childhood trauma underlies many common mental, emotional & physical health issues such as PTSD, HDD, anxiety, depression, chronic hypertension & auto-immune diseases. Therefore, I have trained in the trauma resolution methods EMDR, Internal Family Systems & Somatic Experiencing designed to reactivate embodied psychic trauma & facilitate its release. These methods are life-changing when they release the trauma blocking the flow of vitality, love and well-being.

We sit by the window and watch hoping for the sun to shine again. During such dark times, we reach out to family members for support, but family isn't always available. This is why I have chosen to specialize with both children and with older adults.

If you're here searching for help, you just demonstrated belief in yourself to change, grow, heal. Congratulations on taking that first courageous step! Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and stress? Or stuck in sadness and depression, even grief? Experiences of loss, be it loved ones, culture, or our health/abilities can leave us feeling helpless, hopeless, overwhelmed. Perhaps the overwhelm is due to memories or trauma awakening your nervous system. Whichever it is, if you're living with those symptoms you're probably uncomfortable and ultimately don't want to live like that. You have the potential to change this.
