Life can be hard sometimes. It presents us with challenges that we sometimes don't yet have the tools to deal with. We can feel helpless and powerless to make change. But there is hope, even when it feels like things will never change. You can change. You can learn the tools, get to know what makes you tick, and what makes you not tick. I'm here to help. You're not alone. 

IMATTER is a therapy practice unlike many others. We're a practice that is based in recognizing and reminding you of one simple but important truth - you MATTER!

Sometimes asking for your help can be hard. Wondering if it means you're failing, weak, or going to be judged when you need support can get between you and what you want. At IMATTER we don't think you're weak and we're not going to judge you. At IMATTER we recognize and work with your strengths. You're creative. You're intelligent. This is Therapy for Creative and Intelligent People.
I combine various therapeutic approaches to help you identify that voice which lives in your head that tears you down, sabotages you, invites fear, and keeps you from having the life you want. I then work with you to help you talk back to it. I call this "gremlin therapy"! In doing this you take back your power and your life. 
I work only with adults (18+) and seniors. I sometimes offer group therapy. I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and I have completed a Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta. I bring 13 years of professional counselling experience, extensive training in a variety of therapeutic approaches, and I currently practice in Calgary.

The types of issues that I can help with include

Managing Stress
Healthy Sexuality
Recovering from burnout
Achieving work-life balance
Loving someone with mental illness
Surviving a partner with sex addiction
Understanding and resolving relationship issues
Gaining assertiveness & finding your voice
Reclaiming creative expression & freedom
Defeating anxiety & general worries
Finding purpose & meaning in life
Coping with grief and loss
Healing from trauma
Setting boundaries
...And more. 

I believe that people from all cultures, ethnicities, religious and spiritual beliefs, and sexual orientations deserve acceptance and to be treated with basic respect and dignity.

Please call or email now to ask how I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you :)
