Interests: Expanding, Creating, Learning, Playing, Laughing, Guiding... I am an artist by nature and a psychotherapist by trade. I have been working as a therapist since the early 90s. I believe that most often people already have the basic mental health tools they need to feel well, they just need help to both see that and learn how to apply them. Psychotherapy is a form of therapy based on talking with a professional about anything from general discomfort in life to anxiety, depression, couple, parenting or historic issues. There are many different things that bring someone into therapy. Sometimes people feel they just aren’t coping or a family member or other professional has suggested that they see someone. All topics are acceptable although some therapist specialize in certain issues. Many different types of professionals practice psychotherapy. In my case I have over 10 years of post-secondary education from two major universities. My main area of study was psychology. Within this discipline I studied human behaviour, emotion and social interaction. When a client comes into a session with me I ask them to share their reason for coming into therapy as well as their background. I do this because I believe it is important see people in the context of their entire lives, not just a momentary snap shot. When I have a sense of history I can often see patterns of behaviour that explain why someone is in the situation they came in with. I can also help them identify the tools that they already possess. If you are seeking psychotherapy it is important that you feel accepted and heard by your therapist. You should leave your therapy appointment feeling like you got something out of it. This may be some insight or some resources to further understand your situation or just a sense that someone actively listened to you.
