Do you feel like you just aren’t the parent, partner, friend, or colleague you strive to be? You're feeling down in the dumps and anxious about the future. Your brain is making it hard to thrive in your career and relationships. Ruminating on what could have been "if", or what happened "when". Wondering how to make sure your future is brighter, healthier, and more satisfying? You know this isn’t what you want, and maybe you'e not sure how to get to what you need. Yup. I get it...

I use an eclectic approach to ensure therapy is effective. A typical treatment plan involves defining goals, considering how thoughts affect emotions, coming up with real life strategies to address emotional dysregulation in the moment, or practicing how to communicate with others, in session, to bolster confidence outside of session. Clients leave with tools to use right away and a sense of calm.

I often use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in my practice. In your intake session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy, some health history, and then decide the best ways to move forward. Don't be surprised if I ask you to do homework, or practice a skill between sessions, as this is important to really gel the work we do together! My work is always done through a biopsychosocial nursing lens
