Let us all be like steel. “You must always be prepared to change your shape. It is how you will survive the disappointments and storms of life. You will become something new, you will learn from the changes, and you will emerge better, smarter, and stronger than before" - Algonquin College President Cheryl Jensen, Convocation 2019.
My passion is helping you! I work with different modalities including Psychoanalysis, Cognitive Behavioural, Brief Solutions-Based Therapy and Art Therapy. I can help you get from a place where you may feel down, depressed and anxious to a place where you can see some hope, see solutions and feel encouraged to take action.
My ideal session will consist of staying with you where you are, listening actively, reflecting back to you and allowing you to express yourself in order to hear yourself. We go back and forth and check on your thoughts, behaviours and emotions and see if they have a link to your childhood, past trauma and family behavioural patterns.
Together, we work on detangling you from the past, staying together in the present, and working at visualizing a better future. My goal is to help you help yourself. I am only a part of your tool box. Your tool box will be filled with tools by the time we end each and every one of our sessions. We will work together to achieve success, for this is my passion!
I have a Low-Income Program as well, so let me know if you feel like low-fee Psychotherapy is something you could be eligible for. I also accept Insurance under the Supervision of Dr. Dino Zuccarini, C. Psych.
If you feel like you are in crisis (or suicidal) and need immediate assistance, please call 911. Seek Help immediately!
And remember... Metal never breaks -- it changes shape and can resist corrosion! Be like Steel - never break and resist the corrosion! Let's work together.
