About you

Sometimes you need to talk to someone, someone who may help like a Registered Psychologist, like Vivian Steele or Lisa Porret.

Maybe you are feeling like you can’t do it alone.

Maybe you are feeling trapped, like there’s no place to turn.

Maybe you worry all the time and never seem to find the answers.

Maybe you are noticing the way you feel is affecting your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your everyday life.

Maybe you are noticing that even the advice offered by well meaning family and friends doesn’t really help you feel any better. 

Sometimes talking to a professional Psychologist, like Vivian Steele and Lisa Porret, can help.

Recognizing and reaching out for professional help, like with Vivian Steele or Lisa Porret, Registered Psychologists, can be a good first step toward improvement. Psychological therapy may be of benefit, providing help for a wide range of problems such as: depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, chronic pain, grief, job stress, anger, abuse, bullying, addictions, marriage problems, and family problems. Maybe you just want some personal growth or self-improvement.

Psychotherapy is a talk therapy; it is a way to help you understand your illness or situation. The goal is to teach you some healthy strategies and give you tools to deal with stress and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy may help you manage your symptoms to support you living a better quality of life.
