Sometimes we all feel stuck. Our go-to methods of coping aren't working anymore, or we aren't getting what we need from those we usually turn to. Sometimes those we turn to are also struggling with their own issues and we need a neutral person to talk with. I enjoy working with individuals, including youth, and families who feel this way and are curious to explore if counselling may be helpful for them. I also love working with parents and supporting them to have more open communication and playfulness in their relationships with their children of all ages.

Struggling with life? Talk therapy really helps! I listen. Often, in spite of our best intentions, our emotional reactions and behaviours can be self-defeating and hurtful. Through caring relationship, non-judgmental questions, affirmations, and client expression of feelings, the client feels relief, is encouraged, and becomes aware of the things one cannot change, motivated to change the things one can, and to know the difference. It is my job as therapist to be fully present to the client. I support the client to gain insight about his/her own self and through awareness, live more whole and fulfilling lives.

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.

We all need support, sometimes. Every one of us has periods where we feel stuck; you may be having difficulty navigating your career or your relationship with your partner, suffering from anxiety and isolation due to post-traumatic stress, or perhaps are burdened by grief because of the loss of a loved one. It’s time to get to know yourself more deeply in order to understand what you need and want out of this life. An essential part of that process is to have someone caring, supportive, and non-judgmental to partner alongside you to help you find a solid path through these murky seasons.

We all know that we are conditioned by experiences, burdened by too much programming and sometimes, a bit lost or out of rapport with our very selves. As a result, we can feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or just numb. I am a Registered Clinic Counselor with over 20 years in the counselling field. In my work, I see myself as a respectful, non-blaming collaborator in your search to make sense of what is happening, or in making new sense of what has happened. Though somewhat eclectic in my approach, I rely heavily on Narrative Therapy. As such, I tend to be curious, ask questions and take notes.

Welcome! Psychotherapy is a space of inquiry to attune to what is alive in your body and to orient toward your true nature and to the life you were destined for. I offer body-centered psychotherapy and counselling for adults navigating life transitions and healing from trauma, grief, and loss with a focus on embodiment and transformation of self. When we slow down from outer world demands and turn our attention toward our inner life and body experience, we create an opportunity to expand awareness and to interrupt compulsive habits and complexes that interfere with our creative potential to live a meaningful and symbolic life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V8V 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 V8V 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 V8V, or Child Psychologists in V8V.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V8V 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 V8V 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.
