Seeking psychological help is a courageous step and I strive to make it understandable and effective for clients. Please feel free to email me. I tend to work in a transparent manner, explaining what we do and why, to increase your insight and engagement. A good “fit” between client and psychologist is key, and I would encourage you to look until you find that. I primarily offer Clinical Psychology assessment and treatment plans for the issues a client is experiencing, offering an evidence-based therapy that we agree on. There are times when self-help, a good website, or proven therapy book (bibliotherapy) will be what I advise too.

I enjoy working with clients who have challenges in their lives, are open to new approaches to managing those, and are motivated to work towards achieving change. Clients don't need to have all the answers but it is important that they are motivated to work together with me to find solutions. I enjoy working with clients who are open to exploring patterns in their thinking and behaviour, and who value the process of self growth. I particularly enjoy working with professionals and people who are able to attain achievements in their lives, but notice unhelpful life patterns which interfere with their goals or values.

I like to take time to listen and enjoy working in a warm, collaborative manner. My approach is based on evidence from research and my clinical experience working in general mental health, specialist psychotherapy and eating disorder services. But each person is the expert on their own situation - everyone is unique and needs something a bit different. I provide specialist psychiatric assessments, diagnosis, comprehensive treatment recommendations including medication for psychiatric difficulties e.g. depression, anxiety, autistic spectrum.

They are seeking answers about their life purpose, figuring out their passions and how to grow on various levels such as personal, physical, spiritual, career, and relationships.

Reaching out for support can be frightening. Perhaps you have never engaged with a counsellor, had a negative experience, or are needing to find a new counsellor, whatever your individual experience, it can be daunting. I am here to support you and make the process as comfortable as possible. Perhaps there is something specific you are wanting improve, like relationships, stress, substance abuse, or anxiety.

My approach is client-centred using modalities including motivational interviewing, CBT and the 12 Steps. I studied at the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies in Minnesota, USA, graduating in 2009.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Hamilton District?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Hamilton District specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor 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.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
