As a psychologist I try to provide a safe, confidential environment within which my clients can explore their feelings and values. People seek therapy when they are in pain, when they feel overwhelmed by stress and when they are struggling in relationships. I try to help my clients to resolve these issues by looking within themselves and by allowing debilitating wounds to heal.

Using an Emotion Focused Therapy approach, I begin with the idea that all emotions, including anxiety, has a purpose. Difficulties come when the stress reaction to a possible danger is either too big (anxiety) or too small (depression). When people feel overwhelming anxiety, or stress that is out of proportion to the danger, it is often because there is something else that is causing the stress. Therapy is about listening to the voice of the anxiety and finding appropriate reactions.

Anxiety is a persistent fear about the future and the treatment is to learn to live in the present and face what scares us even though we are feeling fear about it. This takes time to learn and can be very uncomfortable. I use strategies to support the process of learning that fear will pass including mindfulness, self-talk and graduated exposure to anxiety inducing thoughts and activities.

Research has revealed that time spent with animals is directly related to a reduction in anxiety. Interactions with our horses might include grooming, deep breathing, muscle relaxation, and visualizations. These skills can help decrease and replace negative and sometimes dangerous responses to anxiety (i.e., cutting, substance abuse). The individual might be paired with a horse who is also anxious. In turn, they help one other find ways to work through their emotions.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Calmar.

Although anxiety is a natural part of life, it can escalate and begin to interfere with functioning. In these cases, I assist clients to learn ways to gain more control, such as by learning to relax the body, think in ways that do not create additional anxiety, process past experiences that contribute to the anxiety, and identify triggers so that alternate coping strategies can be used. I also work with clients to establish healthy stress management strategies, through exercise, social support, self-care, assertiveness, healthy expression of feelings, and appropriate life balance, so that clients have an overall sense of calm and well-being.

Anxiety is, simply, put, unrelenting worry that continues after the thing or circumstance you are worrying about is removed or it is the exaggerated worry about something. In anxiety, the sheer size of the worry in relation to the concern, the realistic vs. non-realistic nature of the concern, and the frequency or level of control related to concern matter. OCD relates to obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Social Anxiety is an intrusive, disruptive fear of people or certain social situations. Often, we see fears of judgement, body image, looking awkward or stupid, as being thematic in social anxiety thoughts. Just to name a few example of how anxiety can present itself.

First, is the anxiety you experience longterm or has it resulted from a new circumstance. Secondly, what are some skills you can implement to manage your anxiety. And ultimately if the anxiety is longterm, what are the root issues and belief systems that can be changed to bring peace to your life.

Anxiety, fear and stress are all natural human responses that are supposed to be helpful but sometimes they get in the way. They may feel overwhelming or appear when they are not needed.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Calmar.

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Stress and anxiety often get in the way of how and who we want to be. Stress can trap us where we are at, keeping us from growing, and anxiety can leave us crippled as we face the future. However, stress and anxiety happen for a reason. Through approaching our stress, mitigating the effects and learning ways to calm our systems we can both overcome our anxiety and insulate ourselves to future stress.

We live in a high stress culture. Our bodies were designed to deal with short term threats, but in prolonged stress they are unable to recover properly. Furthermore, our bodies may be "programmed" to be more sensitive to stress based on our childhood experiences and even the stresses and traumas of our parents and grandparents. Dealing with prolonged stress and anxiety requires a multifaceted approach: understanding the true sources of the stress, changing patterns of thinking, and adopting lifestyle habits that support physiological recovery and contribute to health and well-being. With the right supports and habits, you can let go of stress and have a healthier and more satisfying life

Anxiety and stress bring physiological changes in the brain and body, activating our primitive threat system. Modern stress tests the threat system in ever new ways and impedes our ability to process information effectively to be productive. Through counselling and practical strategies, we recruit the brain’s soothe system for self-regulation. As we gain experience in handling distress, we become able to maintain our effectiveness in the face of challenge and calm the threat system response.

My approach to treating anxiety is based on learning skills and strategies to help you accept instead of get rid of your anxiety. As you stop trying to fight against feeling anxious you will notice that all of your anxiety symptoms become easier and easier to manage. Anxiety is kind of like quick sand the more you fight against it the worse it gets.

Justin preferred to be at home with his Mom and hated going to school. He felt like he didn't have any friends and was extremely anxious about fitting in. He had headaches and stomach aches all the time and his Mom often allowed him to stay home. He was beginning to fall behind. Play sessions with both Justin and his Mom brought change. I brought them into my playroom and I taught the mother how to be the therapist. She learned to create a nurturing environment and tell Justin "I hear you, I see you, I understand, I care and I am here." Justin's anxiety slowly went away, his attendance increased too, but, better than that his relationship with his Mom improved.

By learning to reconnect with ourselves amidst the busyness of life, we are put back into relationship with our hearts and what is truly meaningful to us.
