My approach to therapy is eclectic. It is always my hope that the conversations we have will bring clarity in a way that helps you make sense of the patterns and interactions in your life that are not serving you. I am drawn to a strength-based or solution focused approach for the way it encourages you to access your own capacity and skills to become “unstuck” in your current situation. I have resonated with what is called Family or Systemic therapy because of how it addresses the problems people present within the context of their relationships.

Parenting (or caregiving) is one of the most important jobs you've taken on. But the person you're caring for is going through some tough stuff, and the two of you aren't getting along. You're beating yourself up, because you keep screwing up your job, when all you want to do is help. You might even be coping with your own issues, in addition to helping them with theirs. You're scared of the future, and sometimes angry at the person you are caring for. You're lonely and even burnt out, because others don't understand.

You have found powerful ways to survive, but perhaps they are now causing you emotional pain and suffering and you are ready to let them go... so you can start being fully present and engaged in your own life. Through connection, compassion, and non-judgment, I can help you understand your unhelpful coping patterns, find compassion for your suffering, and let go of what is no longer serving you.

I am a certified secondary school teacher who specializes in supporting people with ADHD who wish to attend post-secondary education. A high percentage of ADDers do not make it through their first year of college or university. Contributing to failure are lack of structure, poor organization and planning skills, lack of self-awareness emotional and cognitive overload. I help you identify areas that cause challenges to success by comparing your unique ADHD with the demands of independent living and academia. We use this information to build a clear, organized, structured program that is designed to increase independence over time.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V8N are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in V8N then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in V8N, or Child Psychologists in V8N.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V8N psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in V8N specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
