Denise Aarons

Are you stressed, anxious or overwhelmed by your job, personal life? Are you eating or spending too much? Going through a divorce or relationship ending? Want some relief or solutions to these challenges? Then let's talk. My name is Denise Aarons and I am a provider of cognitive behavioral and solutions focused therapy. I approach therapy in a practical and pragmatic way with the aim being for us to consider and collaborate on some new alternatives to your situation and for you to try them out. Our sessions will focus on solutions to problems rather than lengthy analysis of them. I rely heavily on cognitive, dialectic and solutions focused approaches that emphasize change your thoughts, change your actions and you change your reality. All persons encounter difficulties and all possess the strengths and resources to eventually find solutions to their problems. Can you think of a morning when you were not anxious or depressed? Can you think of a time when you were not combative with your spouse? I will assist you to better understand and amplify these good times. I will assist you to envision "what might be" and develop "what will be." Areas of Expertise Include: Social and Stress related Anxiety Depression Self Esteem/Self Identity Binge and Emotional Eating

Jaime Halan-Harris

I have been working with children and youth for 30 years. As a nurse I worked in pediatrics, the case room and in the nursery. I also taught new moms breastfeeding and newborn care. I have worked on pediatric floors in hospital, at Rogers House supporting families in palliative care of their child, as well as working with children and youth who have special needs , experienced trauma and youth with addictions and /or high behaviors. I returned to school while facilitating a children's therapeutic home, taking several courses focused on special needs and mental health. I adopted one of the children in my therapeutic home, he has autism. I graduated with a diploma in psychology and counselling. I also took the Autism Intervenor Levels 1&2, and worked in Ontario as a BC. I facilitated a group social skills and recreation program( SNAP) , a mental heath drop in program, a vocational rehab program, a men's depression group, a teen support group and a parent training ( 15 week training course for managing high behavior). I use a person centered approach which is child lead. My programs are strength based focusing on passions and interests. I use RDI, and TBRI. My feeling is families need to understand their child, be supported with knowledge and given the tools necessary to best support their child to the Child's potential. I offer individual and group counselling, support with accessing funding, behavior support , social thinking skill building and family counselling. I also offer grief counselling, couple counselling, addictions counselling and support for those with depression, low self worth, trauma and help with vocational rehab and life skills. Accessing funding for your child or youth helps put a plan in place for much needed therapy. I can help with funding applications! Building trust is most important in a therapeutic counselling relationship. I will offer support in working towards your goals. Jaime Halan-Harris RPC, BC, RCSS Member of CPCA, VRA

Throughout my graduate work and experience in counseling I have acquired crisis intervention skills, sound decision making skills, and many approaches to working with a variety of populations. I have worked with individuals with addictions, concurrent disorders and those who have experienced trauma. I approach counseling from a Person-Centered framework in which effective listening, strong communication, empathy and rapport building are foundational. I also have experience working from a cognitive behavioural perspective. I have a strong commitment to equality, and anti-oppression and believe that each individual deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. I can also provide counseling services in the Hungarian language
