At one point or another, most people encounter some emotional challenges, whether it be related to anxiety and fears, excessive sadness, loneliness, irritability and anger, or adjusting to difficult life changes.
Treatment & Counseling
While people are often able to manage and cope with these situations using their own strengths and support systems, these same resources may just not be enough at other times. When you or a loved one is feeling “stuck” in a particularly challenging time or set of circumstances, it can be useful to have outside, objective support from a highly trained psychologist.
Dr. Kincade has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and several years of experience in psychotherapy with a wide-range of clients. Clinical Psychology is a branch of psychology that is specialized for the understanding and treatment of psychological, emotional, personality and behavioural challenges. Throughout her six years of doctoral-level education and training, Dr. Kincade received extensive, supervised, practical training with a wide range of therapeutic techniques including: Psychodynamic Therapy; Cognitive Therapy; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Behaviour Therapy including Exposure-Response Prevention (ERP) techniques; Humanistic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy and more.
Because Clinical Psychology is an area of specific training and interest for Dr. Kincade, she is able to provide therapy and counseling services at a comprehensive level with an understanding of the vast number of variables that contribute to individual challenges. Dr. Kincade’s philosophy regarding emotional and psychological well-being is that we are all unique and complete individuals who are each on our own journey of growth and discovery through life’s experiences. Along the way, we learn, change and grow in a variety of ways. When the journey becomes more difficult and obstacles appear, Dr. Kincade is available to help you to look at what thinking or behaviour patterns may be coming into play that are keeping you “stuck” and she will work with you to explore new or alternative paths to continue to move forward.
