The human brain is an amazing tool with incredible possibilities. However, sometimes this wonderful tool can generate states and thoughts that are not as useful to us. Luckily our mind is also flexible, which means that with some intentional adjustments we can often change how we think, feel and behave. In a way, therapy is all about getting to know ourselves and using our mind’s own tricks to our advantage, to facilitate the changes we want to see.
I specialize in working with adults with anxiety and self-esteem issues. I also specialize in couple’s counselling and helping couples maneuver a variety of challenges in their relationship, such as a breakdown of communication, recurring arguments, life transitions, and intimacy issues.
I provide Virtual/Online individual therapy to adults (18+) who are located in the Provinces of Alberta, Ontario, NS, NFLD and PEI. I often work with clients who feel stuck, depressed, anxious and/or irritable and who want to feel better, learn coping strategies and learn how to be their best self in relationships. I also work with clients who have experienced childhood emotional neglect and feel dissatisfied and disconnected from their lives and relationships. I have 24 years of experience and am trained in various approaches of therapy including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals as well as Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Remote therapy only.
