With over 15 years’ experience as a bilingual Psychotherapist working with very diverse populations from adults to adolescents who experience depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD I learned that not everyone feels comfortable going to speak to a therapist in a traditional setting like an office. This is why I offer “Walk Talk Therapy” and mobile therapy. I want to eliminate as many barriers as possible for you to get the help you need. Just as we are all encouraged to exercise for our physical health, I believe everyone should connect with a professional therapist to strengthen one’s emotional health.

I am experienced in helping clients recapture the person they previously were. Many clients say to me, "I just want to go back to being the person I used to be", and that's exactly what we focus on. Clients also often say to me, "I just don't know what to do or what I want", and we work together until we figure out how to alleviate their confusion. We achieve this in various ways, most often through exploration of the presenting issues, examination of past relationships and significant experiences as well as decision-making and behavioral patterns.

Therapy is a great first step to improving one’s quality of life. Although we understand it’s benefit it can also be intimidating. Therapy isn’t about ‘fixing’ an individual, instead the focus is on empowerment and utilizing the skills the person possesses while developing other skills which may help support and maintain change. I believe a strong therapeutic alliance can assist anyone with facilitating the change they are seeking by developing a structure of exploration that alleviates the angst that comes with creating change in one’s life.

You have made the first step! Mental Health is the only part of our wellness we tend to neglect. Take a minute to think about it. If one of your loved one's were to say or complain about chest pain, I’m sure you would not hesitate to seek help. We want to see our loved one's live a long and healthy life and if we could assist in that process, we are going to do everything in our power to do so. Wouldn't you agree? Then what about our mental health? This is what we tend to ignore.

I see myself as an editor asked to help review and rewrite the narrative of a client's life. People often find themselves stuck or unhappy or confused by their own choices and their consequences. In an engaged, friendly and respectfully manner I work with a person to understand how they got to the place they are unhappy with. We then try to re-imagine their narrative, introduce new perspectives, or simply find a greater acceptance of those choices already made.

Sports Performance Therapists

How does sports psychology work?

Sports psychology helps athletes identify and overcome challenges, such as perfectionism or a fear of failure, and improve key mental skills, such as confidence or concentration. By applying principles and techniques from psychology, such as goal-setting, visualization, positive self-talk, and emotion regulation, sports psychologists help athletes improve their performance on the field and their well-being overall.

How long does treatment for a sports-related problem take?

The duration of sports psychology treatment depends on the athlete’s individual challenges, goals, the complexity of the interventions used, and even on the length of the season. A performance anxiety issue may be treated with a short-term treatment, like Cognitive behavioural therapy, while issues such as depression, substance abuse, or severe anxiety may require longer-term treatments.

How effective is treatment for sports performance problems?

Sports psychology has been shown to improve performance and help athletes manage their emotions. Sports psychology can be effective in boosting performance, team dynamics, and injury rehabilitation. Over the past decade, nearly every professional sports team in every major sport has added a sports psychologist to its staff. Many colleges have done the same, and even some high school programs have done the same. Olympic hopefuls may consult with sports psychologists starting in elementary school.

What are the limitations of sports psychology?

Sports psychology may have several limitations. Every athlete is unique and may respond differently to sports psychology treatments. Therapy can help an athlete reach their potential; it can help athletes cope with injury and pain, but it cannot change the physical limitations that may be affecting an athlete’s performance.
