If you or someone you love is struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, body image or an eating disorder, I can help. I'm a highly-experienced therapist who works mostly with teens, young adults and their supportive families. I'm a people person ... compassionate, patient and enthusiastic. My approach to counselling is strength-based and relational. I meet you where you're at. From this safe space, I'll understand your hopes and challenges and help you to recognize and build on your strengths. We'll set meaningful goals and I'll support you as you develop the skills to cope and flourish. Check out my website [ krcounselling.ca ] to learn more about me, my areas of specialization, and what you can expect from therapy. Then call or email me and we'll start with a (no-charge) 20-minute chat. Let's tackle this together!

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior (DBT)
  • Emotionally Focused (EFT)
  • Family Systems
Approach Description: Therapists use a number of "tools" to work with their clients. You may already have heard about CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy). I'm skilled with both of these approaches, as well as a number of others. I regularly take professional training to refresh and enhance my therapeutic toolkit. However, research has consistently shown that - regardless of what therapeutic tool is used - one of the best predictors of the success of therapy is "... the strength of the alliance formed between the therapist and the client. They hold mutual goals, and they hold each other in mutual positive regard." Everyone is unique. So when we first meet, we'll get to know each other. You can tell me what you're struggling with; I'll listen and ask a lot of questions. If, after a session or two, we both feel that we "hold each other in mutual positive regard" and could work well together, we'll decide on the therapeutic approach that makes sense for you.
