Life presents us with many challenges and struggles. Sometimes we are able to manage and cope well, and sometimes we get stuck. If you are going through a difficult time, do not suffer alone.
Being a teenager is tough! There are so many pressures in school, sports, with friends, family and with yourself. Sometimes its just nice to have someone to talk to who understands, and to have someone who can help you explore ways to resolve difficulties.
The thought of groups can be very scary for people but research has shown that group therapy is often more effective than individual counselling! Many benefits can be experienced in a group setting that would not be present in an individual session.
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common, painful, and overwhelming emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling you can recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had or hope to have.
I use several theoretical orientations, some including: EMDR, CBT, DBT, Interpersonal, Psycho-educational, and Solution-focused.
Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic incidents. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few of the emotions that can linger after traumatic events. Therapy can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing.
I am trained in EMDR which is a clinically-proven, evidence-based therapy especially effective in the treatment of PTSD and trauma.
In counselling, a person can learn tools and gain insight that will help them to lead a more content and fulfilling life.
The following are common areas people experience difficulties in:
Wanting greater self-awareness
Needing better balance in life
Effective communication skills
Healthy conflict resolution
I am passionate about helping others find happiness and fulfillment. I genuinely care for every person I see. I provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for individuals to work through any difficulties they may be experiencing.
First session is 1 hour and is $90.00
Each session thereafter is 1 hour and is $180.00.
Is your child struggling with anger, anxiety, depression, challenging behaviour, or any other difficulties relating to overwhelming emotions? This group may help! Research has shown that children who are emotionally intelligent do better in school, in sports, at home, and with peers.
I have designed these fun, 8 week interactive groups, to start in January.
The groups are $600.00 - 8 (1 hour) sessions, pregroup meeting, 1 hour session for parents, supplies, and the “tool box”.
