A Healing Relationship
At Clear Path Counselling Windsor you will find therapists who share a belief that the healing power of therapy lies in the relationship of trust formed between you and your therapist – a relationship in which hope is rekindled, strengths realized and the courage to look inward to discover the greatest gifts of the Self.
Meet Sharon, Sunshine, Patrick and Haley. Each brings their own specialization and unique way of working with their clients. All have a master’s degree or higher and are licensed to practice in Ontario. Nestled within historic Sandwich Town, the Clear Path Counselling offices are a safe and comfortable place for clients of all ages, gender identifications, and cultural backgrounds.
My passion is working with individuals who initially seek emotional support and therapy for depression/anxiety, however, as we further explore we discover the initial injuries, feelings of inadequacies and abandonment issues. Saturated in negative thoughts, struggling with emotions and unable to share with their loved ones their inner feelings of despair, keeping them stuck and unable to make changes. I am skilled in Psychodynamic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, as well Solution Focus Brief Therapy. I am an experienced listener, skilled at thought-provoking questions and not easily shocked and I understand the courage it takes for you to show up and share those dark moments.
In addition to holding a Master’s in Social Work and being a Registered Social Worker in the province of Ontario …
- I am a Registered Social Worker and a member in good standing with both the Ontario Association of Social Workers and the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and carry full liability insurance.
- I am an Associate Member with the Board of Examiners in Sex Therapy and Counselling in Ontario. Under BESTCO supervision and working towards becoming a Certified Sex Therapist.
- I am also a Clinical Member with the Association of Treatment for Sexual Abusers.
My aptitude is to work with people who feel lost, stuck, torn, or beset by problems that seem bigger than themselves. Frequently, people consult with me about their relationships, work, home or life stressors, problem behaviours, and mood disorders.
Whether brief or extensive, I work from the position that therapy is a shared journey and a sacred one. In essence you, as my client, invite me to hold up a mirror. This mirror is a tool that helps you to see your inner strengths, gain insight, and become your authentic self. My passion lies within being part of this process – the journey. My strengths are in forming an effective therapeutic relationship built on trust and compassion.
I have spent my life working to earn the privilege to walk with people along their path of self-discovery and the reclaiming of their power. My passion is helping those in need find courage, inner strength and the ability to choose their life’s direction. I provide therapy to address anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, chronic pain, life challenges, and transitions.
Individuals are unique and flourish when a customized therapeutic approach is implemented. Guaranteed is an environment which is safe, authentic and relaxed while providing support, humility, and non-judgement. Life has no limitations when we embrace forgiveness, gratitude and mindfulness.
I am passionate about joining my clients on their own self-exploration journey of personal growth and healing while providing a safe, relaxed, and judgement-free environment. I believe in providing a collaborative approach of support with various therapeutic tools and techniques. It is important to recognize the uniqueness of each individual when adapting the therapeutic approach to meet their needs and work together towards achieving their goals. My main areas of focus include working with adolescents and people with differing abilities regarding healthy sexuality and relationships, emotional regulation (stress, anxiety, anger, sadness), life transitions, and self-esteem.
In addition to my experience providing both individual and group therapy, I have also had the privilege of working as a direct support worker providing meaningful support for individuals living with co-occurring mental health and intellectual disabilities. With a focus on community inclusion and advocacy, this support includes assisting with developing or enhancing life skills; communication skills; emotional regulation; crisis, risk, and aggression management; and achieving personal goals. Through this position I have found a passion for working alongside people with differing abilities and hope to continue to assist in addressing the service gaps for this population in the future.
