Counselling & Psychotherapy
Focused, Flexible and Empowering Care for Individuals in Ontario
Hi, I'm Jenine, and I support adults on their mental health and personal growth journeys via virtual therapy sessions.
If you've been feeling anxious, depressed or stressed out, you are not alone.
Whether this is a new feeling or something that you have been experiencing for a while, change is possible and
therapy can help.
Common Concerns and Challenges
Anxiety can interfere with your daily life by making it difficult to concentrate and triggering a sense of fear or tension that follows you around.
In addition to the emotional and mental elements, you may also experience physical and behavioural symptoms that make it difficult to cope.
Depression can affect your mood, motivation and energy, which may then make it challenging to get through your day.
In addition to experiencing persistent feelings of sadness or a loss of interest, signs of depression also include:
feelings of guilt
feelings of emptiness
We all have an inner critic- that little voice that goes on about our "flaws and shortcomings" and plants seeds of doubt regarding our ability to cope.
If your critic has become overbearing, therapy can help you to change your relationship with this inner voice so you can see yourself in a new light, and regain your confidence to be seen and pursue your goals.
Stress and Burnout
The ever-growing list of responsibilities, deadlines and tasks can take a toll. If left unaddressed, the accumulative effect of this prolonged stress may lead to burnout- a state of physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.
Breakups, Career Changes, and Other Life Transitions
The only constant in life is change. But what do you do when these changes are unwanted, scary, or painful?
Even positive changes (such as starting a new job) can lead to stress, overwhelm, anxiety, or depression. Whether wanted or not, these transitions come with their own unique set of challenges, and you don't have to face them alone.
Personal Growth & Self Exploration
Sometimes we get stuck in cycles, repeating patterns from the past or finding ourselves in similar situations that we've tried to leave behind. If this sounds familiar, it may be helpful to embark on a journey of self-exploration.
Retelling the stories of your life is a powerful experience that can help with breaking cycles.
Therapy can help.
A new way of feeling, thinking and being is possible and support is available for your journey ahead.
Research shows that 75% of people who participate in therapy report benefiting from it.
Therapy can help you:
Develop healthy coping mechanisms to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression
Develop a sense of calm and centeredness
Increase mindfulness so you can engage more fully in your life
Connect with yourself and others on a deeper, more meaningful level
What to Expect
While we would work together to create an individual plan that fits your needs and schedule, the standard course of therapy includes weekly 50-minute sessions.
Therapy may be goal-directed, meaning that we would work towards accomplishing a specific outcome, such as decreasing anxiety or improving your mood.
Alternatively, therapy may be less directive and serve as more of an emotional landing space aka, a time and place for you to check in, be heard, and emotionally recharge for the week ahead.
For most, therapy is a mix of the two. Identifying what feels most comfortable and helpful to you is one of the topics that we discuss during the initial consultation.
