Take a look at some of the common areas for therapy, and if any resonates with you, connect with us today to arrange for an appointment. 


Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

At The Calming Ark, our clinical psychologist implements effective psychotherapy methods (see psychologist's profile) to instill self-understanding that encourage the adoption of new perspectives, attitudes and feelings towards one's life situations. We believe that no two people are the same. Therefore, our clinical psychologist is dedicated and attuned to each individual's needs and pace. 

A common misconception about psychological therapy is that it is only for people with diagnosed psychological disorder(s) or those who are profoundly struggling with "serious" issues in life. On the contrary, psychological therapy is for anyone who is looking to better their lives and improve their quality of life, and there is absolutely no shame in wanting a better life!

It is essential to remember that psychological therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix, rather, psychological therapy is an individual's healing and growing process that leads to self-actualization. Psychological therapy is a collaboration that necessitates participation from both the clinical psychologist  and the client alike. Making small changes to self-defeating behaviours and learning to adapt and cope with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring fulfilling, life-altering results.
