The Healing Tree provides counselling services remotely or in person for individuals, couples, and youth across BC and Canada, and specializing in the following areas:
Communication & Relationship Issues • Anxiety • Depression
Workplace Stress • Addiction

Communication & Relationship Issues

All couples experience disagreements from time to time. disagreements and differences of opinion are a normal part of any relationship. However, if not managed in a healthy and effective manner, a seemingly simple disagreement can lead to significant conflict.

When couples experience conflict and discord, it is often preceded by poor of communication, lack of trust, feelings of invalidation, and resentments. In working with couples, I focus on helping them adopt healthy communication patterns, which in turn foster trust, mutual understanding, and intimacy.

Anxiety

Anxiety is an emotional reaction to distressing events or situations. Where this can become problematic is when the brain, due to irrational thinking patterns, characterizes most situations as distressing.

In this case, anxiety can become debilitating, and it may overwhelm one’s ability to think rationally. In order to help clients manage their anxiety effectively, I work with them to help deconstruct irrational thought patterns, and to replace them with more rational ways of thinking by using CBT and gradual exposure techniques.

Depression

Depression is more than simply feeling sad. Depression can lead to apathy, lack of motivation, physical and emotional exhaustion, loss of appetite, poor sleep, loss of focus and concentration, and social withdrawl.

Depression is often characterized by extreme negative thinking accompanied by the feeling that things will not get better. In working with clients struggling with depression, I work with them to help them identify triggers that lead to depressed mood, and to reframe their perspectives in order to interrupt negative thinking, thereby retraining the brain to adopt healthier thought patterns.

Workplace Stress

Stress in the workplace can have lasting effects well after the work day has ended. It can be influenced by various factors, including conflict with coworkers and/or managers, lack of purpose and achievement, feeling unacknowledged and underappreciated, or feeling overworked and overwhelmed.

In order to help clients navigate these challenges, I use mindfulness-based stress reduction and CBT techniques to help clients reduce their stress levels and reframe their perspectives in order to better manage workplace issues.

Addiction

Addiction can be characterized as a complete loss of control of one’s life. It affects not only the individual suffering from it, but also their loved ones.

In working with individuals struggling with addiction, it is highly important to take into account the various factors that contribute to the dependency – genetic, psychosocial, environmental, and neurobiological – in order to provide them with a better understanding of the types of behaviours that feed the addiction and allow it to take control.

I provide support individuals struggling with addiction, as well as to the loved ones of those individuals, using a compassionate, strength-based approach.
