Feeling anxious? or stressed? or overwhelmed? The current situation may seem so difficult, there are changes all the time. It maybe the stress at school, or the pressure at work, or the unfairness how others have treated you at work. But, you need the job, and have the anxiety going to work everyday. You can empower yourself by learning coping strategies and use them to handle your feelings and your automatic thoughts. You can also learn how to do self-care, how to do relaxation, so that your sleep quality is better. All the different parts of your life is inter-related and can affect you and your quality in life.

Anxiety and stress can present differently in each of us. Our experience may remain relatively covert - popping up at times when we least expect it, present as a constant low hum in the background of our day, or feel terribly overwhelming for much or some of the time. Each experience of stress and anxiety is valid and personal, and while you are certainly not alone, the path to healing is unique for all. I strive to engage meaningfully with clients by drawing from modalities that are flexible, holistic and collaborative. I prioritize your emotional experience, working alongside you to create a road map to guide you along your journey to healing. Contact me today to learn more about beginning

If you're struggling with anxious thoughts, you may find it hard to focus. The fight or flight alarm is going off in your brain, constantly sending you messages starting with "what if...." If worrying is keeping you trapped in a hamster wheel, tired, but unable to rest, you may find yourself turning to addictive substances or behaviours to cope. As an addiction counsellor, I help clients cope with the anxious thoughts keeping them trapped in addictive behaviours. By uncovering these underlying thoughts, I help you develop coping skills so you can gain a sense of focus, clarity, confidence, and freedom from constantly overthinking. Send me a message and I'll guide you through the next steps.

Anxiety is a normal emotion. It’s your brain’s way of reacting to stress and alerting you of potential danger ahead. However many suffer from too much anxiety living in flight/flight affecting the nervous system in unhealthy ways. Working w old trauma and learning new ways of being in the here and now can lessen anxiety and stress. There are many tools that are helpful.

Stress and anxiety is a part of everyone's day to day lives. However, when it becomes difficult to function due to loss of sleep, change in appetite, panic attacks, upset stomach, aches & pains, etc. therapy can be most beneficial. I use various relaxation techniques, deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, as well as talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (addressing self defeating automatic thinking patterns which effect our mood and behavior). I can teach you how to manage unpleasant symptoms related to stress and anxiety.

Anxiety is a part of everyone's life; afterall, if there was no anxiety at all, we would not rush to make it to work on time every morning, look both ways before we cross the street, and/or fear food that doesn't appear properly prepared. Anxiety is present in our lives to protect us; however, when anxiety become escalated to a point where we cannot effectively manage it, anxiety can become all consuming. Nancy can help you discover more about your anxiety, find ways of coping/managing it more effectively, and help you get into a much more relaxed state of mind.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) has been proven by research to work for anxiety & stress. CBT is goal-oriented and focused on the present. It begins with learning about anxiety & stress related challenges and mapping out how it affects you. You will then learn and practice new skills and techniques, such as problem solving, time management, mindfulness meditation, and balanced thinking to help you make adjustments in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. You will also learn how you can utilize your new skills to deal with problems/challenges in the future.

Anxiety often hits us unexpectedly. We might manage stress well enough until at some point the body's resources seem to get diminished and the body starts to talk back. Some symptoms of Anxiety & Stress might be: difficulty breathing, sleeping and/or eating; restless mind; negative thoughts and tumultuous emotions. The work I find most helpful to improve your skills for dealing with these fear-based emotions; includes cultivating a better relationship with your body and your emotions. As you become more aware of your actual limitations and pay greater attention to your needs, your body can achieve a more balanced state.
