Mental Health Concerns 

Cara is passionate about working with each individual client to create a space of safety and connection. Human experience is optimized when we feel safe, so establishing a genuine strong relationship with each client is integral towards individualizing the most effective treatment methods for their unique needs.

Anxiety

Cara has years of experience working with individuals who are living with generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, performance anxiety, test anxiety, panic attacks and phobias.

Depression

Cara provides a caring and supportive space for people struggling with depression to challenge negative thoughts and develop coping skills to heal and feel more positive.

Stress & Burnout

Sometimes we take on more than we can handle and it takes its toll over time. With Cara, you can learn effective stress management skills to help reduce your stress and prevent burn out.

Intrusive Thoughts

Unwanted thought, images, or feelings can become bothersome when they start to negatively impact day-to-day life. Cara can help you recognize, challenge, and control intrusive thoughts

Trauma & Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event can affect everyone differently. Cara provides a compassionate counselling environment where she uses cognitive behavioural therapy and EMDR to help people process, heal and move on from trauma.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessions and compulsion can be as unique as the people living with them. Using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and exposure and response prevention (ERP) techniques, Cara can help individuals challenge unhelpful thoughts and control urges.

Perinatal and Postpartum Difficulties

It's natural to experience a range of emotions during and after pregnancy. Feel supported during this time while helping them process this big change and develop valuable coping skills to navigate complicated thoughts and feelings.
