Individual Counselling & Psychotherapy in Hamilton, Ontario
Do you want to have more satisfaction in your life? Do you want to explore at a deeper level what triggers you and makes you react in your home, work, and the community? If you have an area in your life where you feel stuck, frustrated, or hopeless, it often stems from old wounds. Compassionate exploration can free you from old patterns and move you towards what you truly want in life.
I won’t tell you to think positive or look on the bright side to shift your mood. Those strategies will help to some degree, but they won’t offer healing. These types of strategies often lead to shame and resentment in those moments when you just can’t muster the strength to choose a new pattern. Together we will explore the wisdom in old patterns of thoughts & behaviours and explore the blocks or problems that you yearn to change to in your life. We will work together to make the shifts you are craving to make in your life.
I work with people with diagnosed mental health issues such as anxiety & depression, and I also work with individuals who don’t have any diagnosis. Often individuals without a diagnosis minimize their problems because it always seems like others have it harder than you, so you don’t want to complain. Everyone struggles at times and needs support during different periods of their life. You have a right to voice your needs.
Adults & Teens
I work with both adults and teenagers. I have spent a good portion of my career working with both adults and teenagers. I have worked for many years in the field of child and youth mental health.
Frequency of Appointments
There are no rules about frequency and number of sessions for my clients. Everyone has different needs. Many clients start by having weekly sessions and then lengthen the time between sessions to bi-weekly, monthly, or as-needed. Some clients like to have 1.5 hour sessions less frequently. Other clients like to have a few months of weekly sessions with an end-date in mind. I can give you recommendations based on your needs.
