My name is Cora, and I’m a counselling psychologist and art therapist in Edmonton, Alberta.
I am trained in both talk and art therapy, and I use whatever approach is the best fit for you. Read more about how I work here.
I am passionate about working with people who are in helping roles or are simply finding life overwhelming right now.
Some issues that I love to work with include:
feeling overwhelmed with stress
…it’s often the most
caring individuals who continuously
ignore their own
physical and emotional needs.
Life is demanding. You spend your life taking care of other people, both in your career and, in one way or another, your life. You do this because you find meaning in it, and you are by nature an empathic, compassionate, caring person. Or maybe it is all you’ve ever known, and not doing that feels “off” for you.
Maybe you are driven to achieve. You take your work seriously, put in long hours and it never seems like enough. You do well in your job but have a difficult time setting boundaries, and it is starting to affect your relationships with others, and your own mental and physical health.
You may judge yourself for feeling overwhelmed, but even the strongest among us are human, too. It’s often the most caring individuals who continuously ignore their own physical and emotional needs. It’s okay for you to meet your own needs and there are enough resources for you, too. Sometimes you just need a little help getting there.
