I would love to meet you and offer you real change and skills to move you forward into wholeness and freedom. I believe the best healing involves all parts of us; mind, body, emotions and spirit. In our fast-paced society, opportunities to be deeply heard, respected and affirmed are scarce. I help clients from a position of respect and non-judgemental curiosity, while clarifying core beliefs, values and goals for change. The tools I have to offer are evidence-based and scientifically proven.

Like many people, I grew up in an environment where we didn't talk about our struggles and emotions. From an early age, I learned to keep the difficult things inside and deal with my emotions on my own. In 1999, I became a crisis phone counsellor and realized that I wasn't the only one who had had this kind of experience. I realized that a lot of people felt the way I did and kept their emotions inside. For the first time, I learned how healing it could be to share struggles with supportive people.

Whether you think you had a 'normal' childhood or know the dysfunction you experienced, we are all wounded by not 'good enough' parenting and thus, develop coping mechanisms which do not always serve us. These adaptations result in depression, addictions, and a feeling of 'stuckness' or 'blah.' I help clients see these adaptations and underlying falsities that many of us continue to live by. As we work, meaningful insights occur and hope returns. You will gain better control of situations and learn to make more meaningful decisions in your life.

I believe that one's trauma history, distress, and pain are often the foundations that strength, meaningfulness, and wisdom are built upon.

Clients who seek me out are interested in developing a deeper experience of life. Their journey may be precipitated by depression, anxiety, or relationship difficulties, but they are often interested in more than symptom relief. They are seeking to develop a stronger sense of self, or an optimized experience of life. This may take the form of becoming the most effective they can be in their personal and professional lives, or it can take the form of embarking on, or continuing, a spiritual search for meaning and connection.

Feeling stuck and disconnected from ourselves and our loved ones is a common human experience in this day in age. Yet, all of us have a deep longing to feel empowered and engaged, to love and be loved, and to experience a deep and meaningful life. Relationships are the core of our fulfillment, and they all start with our relationship to ourselves. However struggles are manifesting, uncovering the layers of our defenses and opening to our inner world and true selves is a courageous journey worth travelling.

The past year has been a time of unexpected change, overwhelm, and uncertainty for many of us. If things have reached a tipping point, you are not alone. You may be longing for more fulfillment in life, or looking to make changes that bring you into alignment with your goals and values. Perhaps you're tired of enduring stress, anxiety, or criticism from yourself or others. Or maybe you had hoped for more from life, but feel trapped by responsibility, trauma, or grief. For many people, counselling offers the space and opportunity to heal, rediscover themselves, and find meaning. If you are looking for that space, welcome.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V9G 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 V9G 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 V9G, or Child Psychologists in V9G.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V9G 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 V9G 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.
