learn more about sessions with Naomi...

We get it- it's stressful to say the least. The pandemic has affected all of us in one way or another. We want to help support you during this time. 

 

Naomi, our Registered Psychotherapist (Q) is offering psychotherapy sessions to help you cope with covid and all the stressors, complications, and grief that has come with it.

 

Each session is 50 minutes in length (can be increased to 75 minutes if needed). Sessions can be solution-focused on coping with covid or  can cover whatever you need to process in this time of need.

 

We want to make help as accessible and safe as possible. So- we're offering sessions online and over the phone.

Things you may want to focus on in session:

  • Coping skills and solutions for stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness related to the pandemic

  • Processing your feelings

  • Understanding yourself better

  • Alleviating pressure from anxious/ negative thoughts

  • Experiencing support in psychotherapy

a statement of validation- it's not just you.

Consider this: the world is shut down (again) or up & down or unknown... you don't know what to read or respond to, you feel anxious and down on yourself every day, you've lost your job and don't know where to begin, you have kids running around and you're trying to teach them things but can't seem to get a handle on everything, you don't feel like talking to those you love even though you think you should, you aren't eating properly, you aren't exercising, the things you used to enjoy have seemed to dissipate. Does any of this sound familiar? You are not alone. It’s a difficult time for everyone. It's hard to stay connected and feel understood and together. With societal, family, work, and other expectations, we can sometimes feel lost.  We’re driven to connect, but there are many things that can get in our way. 

 

What's working – and what isn't?

I know how important it is for you to feel good and move through this time in the best way you can. I focus on helping people like you go from feeling anxious, down on themselves, disconnected, frustrated and lonely to feeling connected, understood, and valued. I have helped many people identify the experiences and patterns that held them back and I specialize in trauma (like what we are currently all facing now!). The focus of my work is to help you move away from your current unhelpful and harmful feelings toward new ways of being that help you get what you want.

Therapy is a place to take some time to really notice what’s working and what isn't. You get to sort things out in a judgement-free zone with someone outside of your intimate circle. In me you will find an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed therapist who will empathize with your concerns, challenge you when needed, and set you up to come up with your own answers whenever possible. 

I don’t believe you need “fixing.” You are already wonderful the way you are. I will help you build upon the strengths you already have and let go of the things that are making life difficult. My goal is to help you move toward a life, albeit changed, that works for you.

It takes courage and self-awareness to ask for help. I commend you for getting to this point.

Let's take this to the next level: claim your appointment. If you still have unanswered questions, book a free consult so we can get to know each other better. It's always at your own pace.
