Are you feeling stressed, exhausted, burned out, and run down? Have you been exposed to stress and trauma through your work as a front-line healthcare professional? Our biological bodies and brains were not designed for the types of financial, cultural, social, and relational stressors we live with today. I see anxiety as a reminder to start listening to our body, our mind, and spirit. I can help you with Mindfulness-based stress reduction and self-care approaches to guide you toward a more peaceful, meaningful, and fulfilling life.

Kitchener, Ontario N2P 1L2 | 519-568-9917

Anxiety can come in many forms, such as: panic and anxiety attacks; extreme fear; worrying thoughts from which one rarely gets a break; sleeplessness either due to going over and over how one behaved during the day, and judging oneself, or, from dreading what the following day might bring; fear and avoidance of one's own intense emotions; fear of rejection of others, leading to intense social anxiety or avoidance of close relationships; performance anxiety, such as worries about exams, job interviews, or performance appraisals at one's place of work. I like to get a sense of the frequency, intensity, and duration of somebody's anxiety, and then to help them to reduce all 3.

Experiencing feelings of stress and anxiety can be overwhelming. Re-occurring thoughts, feelings of pressure, or worry because of work challenges, relationships, or experiencing a change or loss can sometimes be difficult to manage and process. Additionally, sometimes it is unclear what might be causing feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. In my work with you, I seek to help you understand the story of stress and anxiety in your life, its origins, the ways it impacts you and what kind of relationship you might want with it moving forward to be able to better manage it. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if we are a good fit.

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.

It's critical to understand that, even if you suffer from panic attacks, compulsive thoughts, ongoing worry, or a phobia, you don't have to live in fear and anxiety. In many cases, therapy is the most effective strategy to handle anxiety-related problems. Therapy gives you the skills and teaches you how to use them to overcome anxiety. If stress is not managed, it can become chronic stress and ultimately lead to burnout. While burnout leaves people feeling completely exhausted and unmotivated to keep going, stress often results in people feeling overwhelmed. Therapy provides coping mechanisms for stress symptoms, which may help to avoid burnout.

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.

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.

Stress can take a toll on your mental health and trigger anxiety. In people who have an anxiety disorder, stress can make it more challenging to manage the symptoms of anxiety. Increases in this hormone are related to anxiety. Anxiety and stress can be overwhelming and sometimes entirely disabling. They interfere with our lives and prevent us from living our best version of selves. In our therapy sessions, we work together to explore the stressors and anxiety that have been impacting you and your ability to lead a healthy stress-free life. We identify options on how to manage your anxiety better using mindfulness and CBT techniques and help you build your own tools box.

For anxiety and fears, a multimodal approach will be used with cognitive behavioural therapy and narrative. It will facilitate the identification of the anxiety or fears while creating a preferred narrative surrounding it. The benefits of using the combination of these two approach is that it will allow for an alternative perspective and to better understand what one is thinking and feeling.

If you are struggling with anixety and distress, you are likely aligning with the "hustle for your worthiness, acceptance and belonging" culture we live in, and not in alignment with the true nature, gifts, and needs of who you are. I work with you to explore and identify the distressing story and patterns that you are in, and help you to identify and step into the story you want to be living, that is more aligned with who you are and what you feel most called to do and be in life. I also provide tools to help you better overcome the thought patterns and beliefs that obscure you from your wisdom, and help you to focus on and nurture the beliefs that support optimal wellness.

Dealing with anxiety is difficult as it is the body's natural response to a perceived threat and that response, is unique to each individual and can often present itself as a sense of discomfort, emotional reactions, physical sensations, and unhelpful behavioural patterns. Your anxiety can be triggered through situational or environmental events and can often feel chronic. Schedule a free consultation to me to see if I am the right fit to help you manage your anxiety.

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, Ontario K1H 5T7 | 613-733-1422

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.

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.

In working with clients on their anxiety and stress I primarily aim to promote understanding: understanding of why we are feeling so anxious and stressed, 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, lifestyle, or beliefs. 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.

Anxiety is an inescapable emotion, we've evolved to have this signal emotion. However, when a person regularly feels debilitating or distracting levels of anxiety, it can really hold them back. We begin anxiety with cognitive-behavioral therapy, which helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns, and then tailor other types of Psychotherapy based on the individual's needs. We often focus on their relationships and communication patterns. By tailoring treatment, we're able to ensure each client gets help that meets them where they're at
