Individual Counselling:

I approach people from a strengths-based perspective and believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to change their patterns of thinking and way of being with others. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives or relationships, without the insight as to how they can be helped. I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering, insecurities, and darkness. That is, I recognize and work with both the light and dark angel that we all embody. Sessions are personalized to support the uniqueness of the self or of the relationship dynamics. We'll work on practical solutions and build skills to become your own lifelong counsellor.

Relationship Counselling:


 
I focus on a spectrum of relationship issues, including:

• Recovering after affairs or pornography addiction


Blended Families

• Family Relationship Issues

• Co-Parenting


• Separation and Divorce and Collaborative Law Divorce Coaching
 

Eating Problems or Eating Disorders:


 

Digestive problems:


We often experience digestive upset as a result of anxiety or a lowered tolerance to stress. There is a direct physiological connection between the gut and the brain. The gut and brain are actually connected along a gut-brain axis by a nerve called the vagus nerve that governs digestion and gastrointestinal functioning. The digestive system is innervated through its connections with the central nervous system (CNS) and by the enteric nervous system (ENS) within the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. Due to this intimate relationship between the two systems, the gut is often referred to as our “second brain.”  Therefore, imbalances in emotional health can keep us from healing our physical bodies and imbalances in the physical body can likewise impede on emotional health. For instance, together stress and the food we eat can disrupt our physical, mental, and emotional state; and research evidence is mounting on the importance of the gut microbiome, which is also showing links to depression and other mental disorders.  

We emphasize strength-based approaches that recognize your gifts and what you are already doing that works for you to enhance those skills and apply them to your health goals. The first session will consist of a psychological assessment/counselling, an eating pattern assessment, and will gather information to determine if a nutrition plan or nutrition counselling would benefit you. By the end of this session, your counsellor will make recommendations for modalities that target specific eating or other behaviours and counselling goals you may have.


 
 
Psychological counselling for eating dysfunction


Some ways psychological counselling can greatly improve short- and long-term health results are:
 
Changing one’s relationship to food
Improving body image
Improving mental health symptoms that influence food choices and overeating
Addressing eating disorders/disordered eating behaviours (e.g., restricting, binging) that may  exist
 

Counselling for binge eating usually includes DBT - Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (specifically DBT for Eating Disorders).
