Therapists in Nova Scotia (NS)

"I help parents to support their loved ones who struggle with mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviour, anger, behavioural issues, self-esteem, past traumas, as well as negative life events (e.g., divorce/separation). I support parents to help their children deal with strong and complex emotions which are often at the root of many mental health challenges. Raising a child is a wonderful, but difficult task that brings up many complex feelings within a parent. I help parents cope with the challenging feelings that arise in raising a child."
"Art therapy helps to foster creative expression and communication of thoughts and feelings. Discover the benefits of creatively expressing internal processes using colour, line, shape and symbol within a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. Art therapy allows a connection to our deepest metaphors and also has great applications for mindfulness-based work. I am an Art Therapist in private practice, offering individual sessions. My sessions combine a unique blend of verbal discussion and art-making to shed new light on personal struggles and help build a path towards resolution. No background in art required. Everyone has a creative spark!"

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW
"I am best able to help clients who are desirous of making changes in their lives and understand that "the slower you go, the faster you get there". My practice provides a safe space for patients to put all of their thoughts and feelings into words. As patients talk, they learn about themselves and better understand their journey. As the unconscious becomes conscious, patients are able to make more thoughtful and meaningful choices and thus begin to live more full and meaningful lives."
"My work includes a deep commitment to the well-being of my clients. I see individuals 18 and older as well as work with groups of all ages. I understand that stress affects the whole person, including our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves. I support people with difficult life experiences including PTSD, and complex trauma, and I find particular meaning in my work with adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect. I assist my clients to make the shift from surviving to thriving."
