FIND YOUR BALANCE

I'm here for you.

Are you tired of worrying about the future so much and struggling to enjoy the present? Have you done everything you're 'supposed' to do, only to lack the peace and happiness you were promised? If you're feeling anxious, burnt out, and tired of watching your relationships with yourself and others suffer, you deserve a change.

It's time to take back control of your life.

What are you struggling with?

Stress +
Anxiety

 Is chronic stress and anxiety getting in the way of doing the things you enjoy, being present with the ones you love, or moving forward in life? Are you struggling with constant 'what if' thoughts or a harsh inner critic? Counselling helps you address the source of your anxiety + self-criticism and gives you the tools you need to regain a sense of balance in your life.

Whether it’s grieving someone or something you love, a major career change, becoming a caregiver, or navigating a complex diagnosis, counselling can help you make sense of your complex emotions and adjust to life as it is now.

Therapeutic Approaches

Here's a brief overview of the primary therapeutic approaches I use in my practice:

NEW Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

ART uses calming eye movements similar to those seen in REM sleep along with guided imagery to replace distressing negative emotions and images with positive ones. This eliminates strong reactions to triggers and stops intrusive thoughts associated with trauma, anxiety, grief, low self-esteem, and various other issues. Significant results can be seen in as little as 1 session and there is no need to share details of your distressing memories.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT helps you learn to open up to your inner experience, live in the present instead of the future or past, and take the power out of difficult thoughts and feelings so they no longer get in the way of doing what matters to you. It’s an experiential therapy, which means we we will actively practice mindfulness-based exercises, communication skills, and goal-maintenance tools that you can apply in your daily life to create change that lasts.

Emotion Focused Therapy
(EFT)

Your ability to notice, name, communicate, and respond to your emotions effectively plays an important role in feeling connected to yourself, others, and the world around you. EFT focuses on making space for all of your emotions, expressing them in healthier ways, and learning to regulate them so you can improve your relationships and do what's important to you without feelings getting in the way. 

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a form of cognitive behavioural therapy that helps you reduce suffering, find balance, and create vitality in your life. There are four sets of skills that DBT focuses on to enhance well-being: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation. I will help you learn and practice these skills in your day-to-day life so you can feel confident using them to overcome life's obstacles in the years to come.
