When we aren't feeling like the best version of ourselves, it's tough to engage in our lives in the way we would like to; our daily stress adds up and pulls us away from the things that are important to us. Whether little things in your life are piling up and becoming overwhelming or you are in the midst of a major life transition, accessing support is an important first step to living a value-driven life. Having a dedicated time in which to process our thoughts with an unbiased listener can build the insight we need to thrive.

Everyone has ups and downs in their journey of life, but sometimes you need additional support to navigate particular low points. Your thinking may be cyclical, so addressing the problem from multiple angles, with various lenses, can be the breakthrough that is needed. I work with a Humanistic and Positive Psychology framework that sees you as whole and focuses on your strengths. You are not your trauma, your grief, or your diagnosis. I want to help you to improve your quality of life and to fulfill your potential. I also use Resilience coaching to look at your mental, physical and emotional needs, to identify growth areas.

One of the main wellsprings of therapy is love. People arrive with spilling pockets and framed seams from various forms of love gone wrong, each with their own story: of love that has nowhere to go; a love lost or denied, twisted or betrayed, perverted and shackled to violence. These broken attachments are what I work with. Having studied the science, history, philosophy and art of therapy for 10 years, I know that when people get enough exposure to kindness, sanity, and care, we can empty those pockets and knit seams together.

Everyone needs someone some of the time. School going children and adults all experience challenges throughout their life time. Trauma such as parents separating or are in the process of divorce, bereavement can be quite debilitating for children. Learning difficulties can make the school experience very challenging too. Children responses to trauma may result in enuresis or encopresis and other regressive behaviours. Adults struggling to come to terms with childhood trauma, bereavement, divorce, domestic violence and trauma, all of which can negatively affect functioning in daily life. Depression & anxiety often follow trauma.

There are times in life when we feel stuck and there seems to be no way forward. You might struggle to concentrate, feel anxious and stressed all the time, lie awake at night, and get angry for no apparent reason. You might also experiences more severe symptoms like phobias, panic attacks, social anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, self harm, eating disorders etc. The reason might not be apparent, but sometimes it might relate back to unresolved traumatic experiences you've had growing up like bullying, sexual abuse or rape, family violence, sibling rivalry, parents divorce, death of a loved one.

I believe that every child can learn and should have every opportunity to learn. These opportunities should not just be what our education system offers. Children learn in different ways and I see it as part of my expertise to find ways to help our children learn and develop. I love working with children of all ages. I feel that teens and young adults are often misunderstood and I want to be there for them. We need to find the hope and light within each person and sometimes, we even need to show them what they have within themselves.

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
