At B&C Health, Dr. Cappell provides psychological assessment and treatment to adults, offering both individual and couple therapy. When working with individuals, Dr. Cappell’s primary treatment modalities are cognitive behavioural therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy; however, she integrates tools from other modalities to individually tailor treatment to meet her client’s unique goals. In her work with couples, Dr. Cappell primarily uses Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples move from distress to reconnection.
Dr. Cappell provides evidence-based treatment for a variety of presenting concerns, including mood and anxiety disorders, relationship and interpersonal challenges, acute and chronic health concerns, stress, as well as identity and adjustment issues. Dr. Cappell has additional training in sex therapy and works with individuals and couples struggling with sexual issues. Sex therapy is a form of talk therapy that focuses on improving aspects of your sexual life and often involves exercises for you (or you and a partner) to complete in the privacy of your own home and then discuss in therapy.
Dr. Cappell’s therapy style is warm, sincere, and engaged. She maintains an inclusive practice and welcomes clients with diverse backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Dr. Cappell values creating a safe environment for clients by remaining empathetic, open-minded, and non-judgmental.
