If life were a video game, anxiety would be the boss at the end of each level. We might hide from it, or run from it, but sooner or later we're gonna have to face it. Like any heroic tale, we seldom start at the beginning and jump right to the end. Along the way we'll make sure you're equipped with the tools needed to confront even the most intimidating and powerful adversaries. Plus, what journey would be complete without help from trusted advisors and friends. No hero does it alone, and I look forward to joining you on your worthy quest.

Anxiety is internalized prolonged internal stress. Often people are afraid because they have never owned up to themselves. It is completely understandable with the world we live in today and all the expectations placed on we can often become overwhelmed. It can be a forever on going pressure from anything such as, ageing; being alone; illness losing a job/family member/possession. Things that require action can also be heavy stress factors; relationships; losing weight; intimacy; career. Our inner state of mind; feeling rejected, like a failure; low self-image. Etc. "This is not true you have handled everything up till now". Reaching out for support is the first step to creating change.

Registered Psychotherapist & Cognitive behavioural therapist

Toronto, Ontario M4N 3N1 | 647-680-4891

In many cases, an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy is used to help you manage stress and anxiety. Cognitive-behavioural therapy aims to help you change your emotional response and behaviour by changing your thoughts. If our thoughts happen so quickly and automatically, how can we change a stress response that is perpetuated by such challenging or negative thoughts? Using cognitive-behavioural strategies, we can slow down the thought process by creating a heightened awareness of them. As we observe them, we can make significant changes in our automatic thoughts, and subsequently, change our emotional response and the way we respond as a result.

As a Somatic (SE) therapist- mental & emotional health follows the state of the nervous system. If it is flowing seamlessly between sympathetic and parasympathetic; arousal and settling, within a “manageable range” there’s a deep, internal sense of well-being, emotional stability, confidence, clear thinking, aliveness, trust in self and others, and mastery. With SE we will focus on: Your experiences... in the body Learn to track, observe, describe what is going on for you Regulate internal arousal states, shift locked patterns into action, increase body awareness. Encourage emotional engagement with attention to: mindfulness, sensations, movements and impulses. Here & Now find YOU!

Some stress and anxiety are normal and even beneficial (serving as a motivating factor). However, too much, for a prolonged period of time, can start interfering with your day-to-day life due to a negative impact on physical health, mental well-being, self-esteem, job/school, and relationships. My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing from various therapeutic orientations such as EFIT, CBT, DBT, and mindfulness. Most importantly, I focus on building and maintaining a strong therapeutic rapport. I take time to listen and understand your experiences and needs and collaboratively develop a plan that provides the tools you need to reduce distress, now and in the future, and heal.

56 Annie Craig Drive, Toronto, Ontario M8V 0C8 | 647-835-6230

We all know the profound effect stress has on our physical and mental health, yet we all still struggle to say no to our boss, set boundaries with family and prioritize our self care above all else. It's because we live in a society that is constantly demanding us to work more, sleep less, pay more, play less. Our brains are constantly overwhelmed and overloaded, nervous systems triggered, and emotions dysregulated. Even if we think we're doing a good job at managing our stress, we're always going to experience challenges, and we all deserve to take care of ourselves. If anxiety is taking control of your life, reach out to work together and take back your power from stress and anxiety!

Anxiety can rob us of a fulfilling life, making each day filled with stress and worry.

Most individuals experience anxiety from time to time or in response to very stressful moments in their lives. When anxiety occurs in response to normal daily activities or becomes constant, overwhelming, difficult to control and starts to interfere with daily life, it might mean you are experiencing an anxiety disorder. Therapy that addresses anxiety can help you identify and understand your symptoms and learn new ways of thinking, and new behaviour patterns that can greatly reduce your anxiety. Finding a therapist whom you trust and connect with is very important and can be the beginning of feeling more in control of your life.

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.

Short-Term Virtual Therapy, Toronto, Ontario M6G 1L5 | please use email or website to connect

I realize that anxiety and stress can cause significant conflict within an individuals sense of self, relationships to others, success at work and hobbies, or intimate couples relationship. Often times it may even induce feelings of anger, frustration, resentment, or perhaps helplessness, sad, lonely and hurt. Our work together is assumed to be short-term, following a solution-oriented approach. I also utilize a Cognitive-Behavioural therapy (CBT), Narrative, and Emotion-focused approach as necessary. I ask clients to commit to at least 6-10 sessions, as we set realistic goals based on insurance coverage, time, and finances permit.
