Anxiety and Stress are both physical and psychological reactions to stressful situations. It has a variety of symptoms such as excessive worry, irritation, muscle tension, difficulty falling or staying asleep, and feelings of restlessness. When struggling, especially with anxiety and depression it is always beneficial to have a strong support system to help you through challenging times. People such as family, friends, support groups, and your counsellor can all be a part of that system. Reach out to us to work with you through CBT and tools to equip you to manage them.

Anxiety can consume a person's life, making it unbearable. I aim to help you learn to understand how your thoughts contribute to anxiety symptoms. By learning to change those thought patterns, you will learn how to reduce the likelihood and intensity of anxiety symptoms. Using behavioural therapy, you will learn techniques to reduce undesired behaviours associated with anxiety disorders. You will learn to manage your anxiety when situations provoke anxiety and how to manage and thrive in spite of the expectation of anxiety.

In my experience, the combination of schema therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an effective approach to dealing with anxiety. This method digs deeper than CBT alone and brings forth insights that guide us to specific stress and anxiety management priorities tailored to your needs. This is an amplified form of CBT that will open a new door to your recovery.

Are you stressed and anxious? Of course you are! Never has daily life been more full of complications and competing priorities; but focusing on changing our behaviours often leaves us feeling even more defeated. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which has been proven to be the most effective treatment for anxiety, allows us to focus on our core beliefs and how they create automatic thoughts, which create anxiety and cause damaging behaviours such as avoidance and withdrawal. In addition to CBT strategies, we will explore how your past experiences have created a roadmap for how you view yourself, others, and the world, and will work to repair any roadblocks caused by those experiences.

"What if..." "What about..." "I can't do this." "Why don't they get it?" "Why me?" Anxiety and stress can create a state inside ourselves where we can no longer see a way forward. That others are making our lives worse. Or, a belief that we need to think of the worst outcome in order to be prepared or do certain things to make sure nothing bad happens. We have very little brain space left to just enjoy or be present in our lives. Using compassion, acceptance, and mindfulness techniques you can expect that in working with me or my associates, you will experience relief from your symptoms and tension and come away with practical and actionable tools to help bring ease to your life.

While anxiety and stress in certain levels can be a positive experience, anxiety and stress that negatively impacts our lives can make us feel trap and helpless. While treatment examines the historic causes/patterns of anxiety, clients are immediately given tools so that they are better equipped to manage their anxiety from the onset of therapy. Once the anxiety is manageable, other areas of the clients past and life are explored that are serving to create, maintain, and aggravate the anxiety. At the end of treatment, clients can expect to experience a renewed sense of calm, peace, and contentment as they begin living the life they want to live.

Registered Psychotherapist

237 Carruthers Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario K1Y 1N8 | 6138541818

In working with clients on their anxiety and stress I primarily aim to promote understanding: understanding of why we are feeling so anxious and stress, what factors contribute, what can be done to better manage or eliminate anxiety and stress from our lives, and most importantly, how to eliminate ambiguity from our lives. I specialize in working with clients on their stress and anxiety, whether it stems from work, relationships, family, trauma, or our lifestyle in general. It is only through understanding that we can promote comprehensive and meaningful change in our lives. I utilize principles of cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused work, and psychodynamics in my work.

When our sense of self is threatened we respond by experiencing anxiety. In verbalizing our anxiety we begin to see our reality with more clarity. We consider the beliefs and events on which we base our reality and examine our protective strategies and the consequences of our choices. We learn to expand our reality so as to include various helpful factors that we earlier omitted and that will better allow us to manage our stress and anxiety.

Anxiety and stress often have deep root causes. EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) can be an invaluable tool. My work with EMDR, and other modalities, can be greatly assistive to clients in these situations. I offer customized options and strategies based on your personal needs and challenges. It is so important to have a professional who believes in your abilities even when you might not. I work from the belief that you have the resources within you to cope and that it is my role to support you to connect to that wisdom.

Anxiety ranges from a minor annoyance to an absolutely debilitating state. I work with individuals like yourself to first come to a true and thorough understanding of what your experience with anxiety is like. How it shows up, what it feels like, and what causes it to show up. It is at this point that we can then explore coping strategies that are applicable to YOU and the anxiety that you experience.

Anxiety and Stress are both life and living challenges. They are part of the normal obstacles we face in our lifetime, be it in health, in illness, in marriage, in couple and relationship issues, in aging and with our children. The thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with them can often overwhelm and even paralyze us when they occur. In a supportive and empathic environment I help people understand and demystify these feelings and find coping strategies so that they can overcome these crippling experiences in order to live productively again.
