There is good stress and bad stress and it is all around us. Stress can be used as a tool for motivation, i.e., a work or school deadline encourages us to get the work done. However, if we have a large number of unchecked stressors in our lives and few to no coping mechanisms, then stress can become a very serious problem, affecting us both physically and mentally.
My experience as a Career Counsellor and a Secondary School Teacher for 20 years has given me a unique perspective on the prevalence of stress in both work and academic environments.
Why Work With Me?
In my 13 years as a Registered Psychotherapist I have grown by engaging in continuing education, meeting regularly with peers to share best practices, developing a broader toolbox of appropriate clinical interventions, and limiting my caseload so that I can be present and focused for each client and each session.
My service to clients is based on the principles of both strengths-based therapy and client-focused therapy. Using both of these techniques allows me to be present and focused on client strengths and client needs.
I do my best to schedule clients as soon as possible in my very busy practice. Often a cancellation by another client will open up an earlier session for you. There are no fixed number of psychotherapy sessions for each client - it will be a discussion between client and therapist about how many sessions the client would like to have.
