Health Psychology

The health psychologist goes beyond explaining illness as the result of a malfunction in a single biological system, to understanding health and illness as something that is influenced by both biological factors, psychological, and social factors, thus, accounting for the influence that the mind has in health and illness. By considering the more general context of health and illness the health psychologist also brings attention to how health can be achieved rather than leaving as something to be taken fro granted until broken. Thus, health and illness become something that is considered on multiple levels, such as, how the influence of social norms interact with health and illness.

I offer a warm and safe place to engage in health psychological counselling. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.

It is very important to not self-diagnosis and mental health changes that can occur when being faced with family conflict.  With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but mental health issues can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional. Talk therapy is very effective at working with a variety of issues.

Because of the wide variety of reactions, and the complexities and subtleties of professional diagnosis and treatment, feel free to call me to discuss further. I am experienced and trained in a variety of treatment and assessment methods.  Contact a licensed mental health professional or your family doctor if you have concerns.
