Life can get difficult.  Problems with work, relationships, finances, loss of loved ones and health concerns are just some of the things that can contribute to this.  Problems can lead you to feel helpless, anxious, stuck, worthless, angry or sad. It takes courage to talk about the problems in your life and how they affect you.  Therapy is not easy or quick work, but it can be rewarding.  By working with a therapist, you can begin to feel yourself again. Through therapy, you will learn to notice the thoughts, moods and behaviours that shift you away from the life you want to lead.  You will learn the skills you need to shift towards the person you want to be.  
I take an integrated approach in our work together.  That is, the therapies used will come from different theoretical orientations.  At its simplest form, just having the ability to speak with someone about your concerns, perhaps for the first time, can be quite beneficial.   Specific techniques are used with your consent to help transform difficult thoughts, feelings and actions.   Techniques may be cognitive (thinking), body-oriented (feeling) or behavioural (action).  Mindfulness and meditation may also be used.
The positive effect of therapy is supported with scientific research.  Keys to success include a desire for change and a willingness to work on your difficulties.   Equally important is the relationship between you and your therapist. You need to feel comfortable with telling your story to someone that is caring, non-judgmental and empathetic towards you.  If your gut tells you that the fit between you and your therapist feels right, then Iencourage you to stick with it.  Over time, you will see the benefits.

I work with individuals experiencing a range of different challenges including, but not limited to, the following: 
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief / Loss
  • Life transitions
  • Parenting
  • Relationships
  • Self-identity
  • Self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Substance Abuse
  • Trauma

I offer individual therapy sessions for clients aged 18+.  The sessions can be in-person at my Whitby location or on-line using a secure and confidential platform.  Sessions are 50 minutes in length.  At the first session, you will sign a consent form and get information on how your privacy is protected. The first session is an intake session where we will talk about your history and your goals for therapy. 
Session fees are $100.  If appointments need to be cancelled or rescheduled, 24-hour notice is required to avoid being charged the session fee. 
You can get more information by emailing me at or calling 289-314-2419.  You can also visit my website or visit my Facebook page, Bloomosity.
