Life is difficult for all of us and it's often a trap when we focus on "just being happy." The truth is we've evolved for survival, NOT HAPPINESS. Happiness is a by-product of living a meaningful and fulfilling life. How do we do that? By living in alignment with our values, that is, what matters to us and what we really are about. It's been said that we're either living for our resume or for our eulogy. My therapy is called ACT - a dynamic new approach based on mindfulness, acceptance and committed action.

Psychotherapy is a living balancing process that we do together. It can be about support as you go through something difficult. It can be about helping you find - or build - more skills and resources. It can be about understanding yourself better and making changes based on this understanding. As a therapist, I combine the science of general trends and tools, with the art of fitting them to your particular situation. My approach is evidence-based, and evidence says how you make sense of your life matters a lot. Therefore, I work with you to create a plan, together, that balances options based on scientific evidence with your situation, values, and beliefs.

Registered Social Worker

#102, 4616 Valiant Dr. NW, Calgary, Alberta T3A 0X9 | 403-608-2084

I believe that being a therapist involves leading people to places they may have trouble getting to on their own - such as using one's rational mind to 'figure out' problems. Some of my skills involve using mindfulness and body awareness to deepen therapy and get to the roots of my clients' struggles. I also help you understand the various parts that go into who you are, and the ways they do and don’t work for you. The ways in which we have learned to cope and manage the many stressors and situations of our lives carry our wounding as well as our resilience. As we unpack the parts and skillfully tend to them, we transform them, and open more space to live from our true and whole selves.

Registered Psychologist

Most of us at one time or another will suffer from some form of emotional or psychological distress. Our feelings are a result of the complex interaction of our upbringing, our experiences, our relationships, our behaviours, and the way we think about things. Psychotherapy allows us to change our feelings by changing the way we think and behave. It can help you with communication to improve your relationships and make your life more joyful. I use cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness, and other approaches to help you change old habits and ways of thinking in order to help alleviate your emotional suffering.

Specific treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Dialectical Behavioural Therapy can be effective in helping people with the symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions such as mood disorders. Cognitive distortions often take the place of more rational thinking and once these distortions can be discovered, even the realization of the distortion can help a client learn new ways of thinking and thus feeling. Such a distortion could be something like 'all or nothing thinking'. A client may present suggesting that "things are always this way." By finding positive exceptions to this we can realize that things are never all good or all bad.

Registered Social Worker

My approach to psychotherapy is combining mind, body, and spirit. I am a Certified Integrative Body Psychotherapy practitioner and see that the body is essential for healing from psychological pain. Many of our psychological issues stem from traumas sustained in early childhood or later in adulthood. Talking about trauma will only take us so far in our healing and to resolve our emotional patterns, we need to engage the body in the healing process. We store all of our traumas in the body and this is the place where ultimately we need to go to heal the injuries. The body knows how to heal and be well and we need to tap into its inherent wisdom.

About Calgary, Alberta

Calgary contains several communities:

Crescent Heights, Renfrew, Mount Royal, Mission, Ramsay, Inglewood, Rosedale, Mount Pleasant, Bowness, Parkdale, Glendale, Park Hill, Bankview, Altadore, Killarney, and Forest Lawn.

The city of Calgary is located in the southern part of the province of Alberta.  Calgary is the largest city in Alberta and the third largest city in Canada largely due to the oil industry in the province.  Located in an area of foothills and high plains, it is a short distance from the Canadian Rockies providing a diverse and beautiful landscape.  Although the area is well known for the petroleum industry, Calgary has also seen strong economic growth in agriculture, tourism, and the high-tech industries in recent years.   Counseling in Calgary has become an essential component of mental health care.

As an expanding city, it has its root in the European settlers who first visited the area that would become known as Calgary in the late 1700’s.  Europeans began to settle here in the late 1800’s with the area becoming home to the North West Mounted Police (now the RCMP).  Today, Calgary is home to a diverse people group with several different religious views, the most common being Christian. Counselling in Calgary, AB aims to truly resolve issues that individuals face, rather than simply returning one to a state of functionality.The name Calgary has it roots in Scotland after a town on the Isle of Mull.  Fort Calgary and the NWMP originally focused on the protection of the western plains from the illegal US whiskey traders.   Today this city is one of the major cities in all of Canada.

Calgary is located in Alberta, Canada. It has a land area of 825.56 square kilometers.  The population of Calgary is 1.25 million people with 466,725 households .
