Counselling and Psychotherapy Services

I specialize in treating trauma and PTSD and I offer individual psychotherapy for children, teens and adults as well as couples/family counselling. Listed below are some of the most common client concerns that I work with. If you do not see your concern listed please contact me to see if this is something we can work together on.

I try to remind everyone whom I work with that a diagnosis, while often helpful, is only one piece of the puzzle. This allows us to classify symptoms but does not necessarily tell us why such symptoms exist. Many people want to be able to manage the symptoms, or be given coping strategies, which is understandable, and something we can discuss. However, this approach alone will not make your symptoms go away. Without taking the time to understand the cause of your troubles, they will continue.

 

In that sense, simply offering you coping skills is similar to putting a bandaid on a physical wound that needs stitches or surgery. The band-aid may temporarily cover up the problem but the wound will not heal and the band-aid is not a long-term solution.
