Individual Therapy - for Invidivuals 25+, Veterans, Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, Refugees/IRCC
in-person, online & telephone sessions
no obligation free 10 min. initial phone consultation
I'm a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Grief-Informed Professional and Certified Specialist for Anxiety Disorders. What all that means is that I've got specialist training in - and a passion for helping people heal from past traumas and manage experiences of grief and loss and anxiety. But my clients come to therapy for a wider range of concerns than that. Some find that past traumas are negatively affecting their relationships and functioning in the present and they're ready to find healing. Some clients are feeling low, stressed or anxious - maybe unsure about the future of a relationship, grieving a loss, or just feeling that they're not living the life they were meant to lead. Whatever your needs, I am here to offer support in ways that are uniquely tailored to you and your goals. If you're interested in therapy and not sure if we'd be a good fit, please get in touch and we can start with a free phone consultation.
I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I believe that you, as a client, are the expert in your own experience. I, too, bring expertise to our relationship - in my years of clinical experience and training and expertise in a range of systems of change and therapeutic approaches. So, we're really working together to help you gain insight and clarity, uncover patterns, develop new perspectives, heal from past experiences and learn strategies to manage ongoing challenges. Therapy can help you find balance and live more authentically, with greater self-trust and self-confidence.
All my work is founded on anti-racism, anti-oppression and trauma-informed principles.
Everyone with a desire for change, healing or transformation is welcome.
WHO ARE MY THERAPY CLIENTS?
ages 25 and up
People like you and me! You don't need a referral.
Everyone has different experiences, concerns and goals for therapy and I'll work with you to identify goals and create a custom therapy plan to support you.
There is no silly reason to come to therapy and you don't need to have any diagnosed issue. Sometimes we all need a little support. In fact, it's a sign of wisdom to know when to ask for help!
VETERANS, RCMP & CANADIAN ARMED FORCES PERSONNEL
As a registered Mental Health Professional with Medavie Blue Cross I work with active and veteran RCMP and Armed Forces personnel. I am experienced helping both veterans and acting personnel with operational stress injuries including anxiety, depression and PTSD. Loneliness and isolation, relationship difficulties and other concerns may compound your distress.
You don't need to handle this alone. I am here to help. Direct billing is available.
I provide in-person and online psychotherapy to refugees, paid directly by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. All refugee claimants are welcome to contact me. You will need a referral note for psychotherapy from a physician or nurse practitioner.
