I have battled anxiety and depression for over 15 years. Upon moving to the island, I found myself a bit lonely and a bit overwhelmed with everything new, different, sometimes challenging. I was also still reeling from my most recent depressive episode and paralyzed with fear that it would happen again.  I finally reached out to Infinite MindCare and started working with Dallas shortly thereafter.  

Dallas spent the time to listen, gain my trust, and intuitively knew when to push me and when to let me pull back. She broke things down into the most manageable bites, and we built on them over the course of 8 months. Dallas coached me through changing my mindset and understanding my own mental health while addressing issues both old and new. I am certainly not "cured" (and Dallas will tell you, there is no such thing!) but I understand where my challenges will be and have confidence that I have the tools to not just survive, but find a way to thrive in spite of the challenges that come with being human... all thanks to Dallas' guidance and my own bravery to allow her to help my process.

Therapy isn't a weekly event for me anymore, but the foundation of trust I have with her provides a peace of mind that there is always someone willing to guide me through anything else I might go through.

We brought our 11-year old son to see Sutton when he was having difficulty with his emotions and his behaviour while transitioning to a high school environment. Our experience was very positive. Sutton's approach was evidence-informed, pragmatic and empathetic. She provided my son with practical tools to help him identify and manage his emotions and control his behaviour. Sutton also provided my husband and I with invaluable parenting advice to support our son. We are all so grateful for her help and saw remarkable improvements that have been sustained over time. We can recommend Sutton's services without hesitation. Our son sends a big "thank you!!" to Sutton as I write this.

There are times in your life when you fall and skin your knee! There are times in when you fall flat on your face! There are times when you fall so hard you don’t want to get back up. That was where I was when I walked into Sutton’s office. I had reached my bottom! In fact I think I had dug a hole about three feet below that.  The shovel I used to dig that hole was then covering me with dirt all on its own. I was riddled with shame, guilt and had lost all sense of self long before then. Sutton, helped me restore the light within me. With patience, persistence,  and compassion, she helped me find the strength to get back up and rewrite my story. Sutton, has an unearthly ability to combine evidenced based therapy, with an incredibly empathetic, and intuitive ability, that motivated me to make the necessary changes in my life. I am forever grateful.​

One of the biggest fears we have is asking for help and with any new relationship it takes time to build trust, allowing that person to see the sides that we hide from the world. Over the past 13 years I have spoken to many different therapists and with each one I have had different a experience. Each individual was able to help me gain recognition to the reasons why I was living in so much emotional pain. In 2014 my life turned upside down and it was at that point where I needed professional help and it was Sutton who became my therapist. I' am thankful that she was there to help me turn all the darkness and broken pieces in my life into light.  living with mental illness is not easy and that is why when you decide to enter a small room with someone who you are about to open your soul to, it is best you have an idea of who that person is. Especially if your taking this step on your own without telling friends or family; Sutton is one of the most straight up honest professional women who I have seen, she is very supportive and will always look at whats healthy and best for you. I appreciate this because I feel safe knowing that she can see me at my lowest and make sure I am safe. Like I said it is never easy asking for help, but I know if I am afraid I can turn to her and my best interest is always going to be first. Sutton has worked with me one on one as well as with my father. She helped clarify his own doubts about his parenting giving him peace in before he passed away. She was able to give him clarity about my illness and assured him that he was not the cause of my pain and trauma as well as helping him with is own behaviors. After each session I have, I leave stronger and more aware of my present state of mind. I am given tasks to focus on until our next session and I am always encouraged to check in. Sutton is able to teach you coping skills that treatment centers focus on and help you stay in recovery. She has the experience to listen and understand your battle helping you believe in yourself to finally let go of the pain. I don't have children yet, but if I did and they had the same illnesses or trauma I have had , Sutton would be who they would go to.  She knows about  my childhood and struggles and how she has helped my behaviors I can trustingly honestly say your child is in safe hands.

I attended regular sessions with Sutton over a six-month period. I found Sutton insightful and very helpful on a practical level. Certainly, I feel much more self-aware as a result of these sessions,  better able to deal with practical issues and able to live more in the moment. In summary, for me the experience has been truly enriching.

My daughter was diagnosed at birth with a medical condition that causes her to suffer from anxiety and depression. Last year at age 10, after a neuropsychology evaluation, counselling was recommended to begin asap. Two weeks later, along came Sutton for our first session. Neither my daughter nor myself knew what to expect. We were both anxious and I was certainly tense. You see, my child's condition, while quite common among females is one that is not well known out there especially as a lot of females are often undiagnosed. After spending years educating others, even some in the medical field and being proactive in getting services for her, I was wondering if this lady would know how to treat my precious child. That first day we entered Sutton's office and immediately she made us feel comfortable and at home. She exuded warmth and friendliness. She treated my daughter like the intelligent human being that she is, not condescending as some adults might treat a child, not forceful but with care and understanding, showing my daughter that her thoughts, ideas and feelings are valued. 

We learnt many strategies and techniques as a part of the treatment. I received weekly Homework . My daughter did too and we didn't mind one bit. In the early stages, I wondered what to make of it all but then I began to see the gradual improvements along the way.

Sutton is the ultimate professional while being personable and caring. My daughter and I appreciate Sutton very much for her dedication and warm spirit. My daughter is ALWAYS very excited to go to her sessions. While away on vacation last Summer, my daughter needed her and Sutton made contact with her via phone and spent long periods on the phone with her throughout that time. THOSE WERE NOT BILLING SESSIONS. When we came back on island, she reached out to us to check on my daughter.

Even though Sutton taught us various techniques and strategies, last September I was extremely worried about how my daughter would fare while Sutton went off on maternity leave. Just about the time Sutton went off, my daughter began high school. We had opted not to see anyone while Sutton was off but to "patiently" await her return. I thought the transition into high school would have been a traumatic experience for my daughter. However, it soon became evident that my worrying was a waste of emotions as the true testament of Sutton's work was reflected in my daughter's coping skills during that time. She ACED it by employing the strategies and techniques Sutton taught her. I too used what I was taught to help her but my help was to a lesser degree. Did Sutton leave her alone for all the time she was off? Goodness, NO! Approximately six weeks after having her baby, contact was made and maintained.

Being on this lifelong journey of challenges with my daughter has at times been painful and stressful. I have had feelings of helplessness when faced with my daughters emotional challenges knowing that I don't have the requisite skills to help her. As such, I am very grateful to Sutton because she has affected such a positive change in my daughter. She has empowered her. She has caused her to have a better quality emotional life which transcends into a better quality of life and for that I will be eternally grateful.

I look forward to our continued relationship and DEFINITELY RECOMMEND her services.

I met with Greg at a very low point in my life when my self-esteem was nil and my anxiety about being a single woman in her late 30s was overwhelming.  It's important to note that I was already medicated on anti-depressants so my self-image was consumed with thoughts of 'crazy, cat lady.'  I had already received two years of therapy for my social anxiety and the damage of growing up in an alcoholic home so I wasn't keen on having to revisit the past.  However, my insecurities at work and trust issues in romantic relationships were completely unmanageable and self-destructive.

 

It is said that we change when it is painful enough.  Greg gave me actionable tools via CBT to work through my negative impulses and choose positive and more reasonable thoughts.  We talked about boundaries and what is acceptable behaviour for a mature, loving partner.  When you don't see much evidence of that in your own life, you begin to doubt its existence and become overly cynical and bitter.  He showed me it was OK to have needs and expectations and how to be responsible to myself for them, but also how I can learn to be joyful even if my journey doesn't take me where I expected to go.

 

I'm also grateful to Greg for his ability to calm my anxious spirit with deep breathing techniques.  I trusted that he was invested in my growth and healing because he was honest through my tears. Greg, has my utmost respect and I would not hesitate to recommend that you speak to him about your worries and that "one thing that you just can't get past."  I have no doubt Greg can walk you through it, IF you are willing.

I had reached a stage in my life where I was no longer willing to be a Prima Ballerina ie tip toeing silently around my life and relationships with satin slippers in a wordless performance of pirouettes, curtsies and twirls. Somewhere from within, my inner self drew a line in the sand, I was tired of this dance and I knew that I needed help.

 

Help came in the form of Greg Miller, a therapist. Sometimes, one needs a quiet safe place and a listener to enable you to delve into who and where you actually are. A place where there is no risk of emotional conflict or pain, a place where you can say what you want to say and know it will not impact anyone and more importantly it will not go any further.

 

Through regular therapist sessions, I started to understand that the constant strives for perfection which had always seemed such a normal part of the “me” that I knew, was camouflaging a deep sense of Fear that had been with me from early childhood.  I gradually started to realize that fear had become dominant force that was wreaking havoc in all aspects of my life and yet up until then, I had, had no idea of its existence and that it was one of the fundamental causes for much of the unhappiness and sadness in my life.

 

Through these sessions of introspection, the road to “me” become visible and more importantly accessible.  I walked this path with the support of Greg Miller. Yes, certainly there were time when the path became narrow and dark but the support I received by the way of therapist was the guiding light to reaching my goal of dealing with Fear and realizing my strength of resolve and who I actually am. 

 

Today I am a different person; I can speak my truth in a graceful but assertive manner. My relationships have improved far beyond the proverbial line that I myself had drawn in the sand. I stand in awe of my personal development and am deeply thankful for the professional care that I received from Greg.

Sometimes you meet people who are truly doing what they're meant to do... this was the case when I found Infinite Mindcare. I had searched for help from multiple professionals before having the good fortune of finding Sutton Burke. She helped me acquire the tools I needed to work through not only my existing anxiety, but any future challenges that come my way. Her guidance and support positively impacted every aspect of my life. I'm a healthier and happier individual overall thanks to her guidance. She has the magical ability to provide insight and skills in a way that doesn't feel clinical but is always professional and supportive. She honestly changed my life, and I know she'll continue to do so for others.

I first met with Dallas two and half years ago, at a point where my life had changed dramatically. In that first meeting we talked about goals - what did I want to achieve with counselling, other than just having a chance to voice my inner monologue. It was the first time I can remember actually sitting down and seriously thinking about myself, who and what I wanted to be, other than a wife, mother, friend and colleague. And so I began the journey, with Dallas as my guide, of not only identifying what I wanted but actually becoming the person I wanted to be. The support Dallas has provided can best be described as that of a great friend who does not judge you or the others in your life and provides positive reassurance when needed while challenging you to asses what changes you can action to achieve your goals. I think it speaks volumes that I get as much out of our sessions when I'm in a great place as I do when I'm feeling low. If you're looking for a non-judgmental, compassionate, wise, empathetic counsellor, who you can laugh and cry with I would highly recommend Dallas.

I recommend Dallas as a counsellor! She was enthusiastic, professional and serious about my development. She consistently gave me objectives to help me progress. During the sessions she diligently listened and made insightful comments that left me fodder for thought in the weeks between our sessions. Dallas was so present with me I felt like she participated in my journey.

Just want to thank Marissa Paquin for the emotional support during several sessions in counselling with her. I greatly appreciate her for listening, as well as her help through EMDR Therapy in coping with some tough issues! It was invaluable.

I am so pleased to have found Infinite Care. Thirty years consuming copious amounts of alcohol and abusing my body, my liver finally saying ‘no more’.  Additionally, my general health was suffering ailments popping up every year as well as under the excess weight I had put on over the years. 

Through this programme I was taught to love and respect myself, initially by regular ‘Headspace’ videos which enabled me to become aware of my head, mind and body no matter what environment I am in.  Having been introduced to the concepts I am now practicing standing alone and developing a stronger independent me.  I’d hardly done anything alone throughout my decades of life and now I feel I could do everything by myself, I feel that good!  There were lots of video clips for inspiration and helping me to see beyond the black and white (the way I’d typically seen life) and appreciate that there is another area that is grey or whatever colour is presented.  I’d always thought that my glass was half-full but it wasn’t, however, now it truly is.  My ‘awesome jar’ spills over and every day and I give gratitude (in a journal) for people, places and things within the environment, the world.  It no longer matters to me what any of your/my faults and misgivings may be. I have come to appreciate all of us being a part of society exactly how we are.  If a particular negative feeling won’t shift I am practicing the art of forgiveness.  I am wallowing in the humorous, loyal, honest and committed person that I am.  However, I am not forgetting the character of Veruca Salt (from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) whose characteristics I often presented but forever giving thanks for having learned so much about myself and knowing when Verruca wants a say. 

No booze for two months, along time for me and people are noticing how loose my clothes are now that I am finally sticking to a food/exercise lifestyle. Forever grateful.

Overall, I was very satisfied with the program. Ms. Dallas clearly has a great masterly of the subject matter and we held very interesting, eye-opening conversations throughout the program. Ms. Dallas also showed great flexibility in terms of appointment times which enabled us to complete the four sessions in less than four weeks. 

 

I will not hesitate to recommend Infinite Mindcare to my friends in future.

Marissa has been exceptional in assisting guide me through a particularly traumatic and troubling time in my life.

I have struggled with anxiety and depression since I was 9 years old. I am now in my 60s. Over the years I have used food, alcohol and unhealthy relationships as my coping mechanisms and was often either rageful or in tears.

I tried counselling and antidepressants and though they were helpful at the time but as soon as I stopped, the anxiety and feelings of hopelessness came back. My sessions of combined counselling and neurofeedback with Bob have been life changing. In the first session he opened a window to my core issues and it was like a light went on.

My friends and family have noticed how l am much happier and calmer I am and for the first time I am not feeling fearful anymore. I can’t recommend Bob and neurofeedback enough.

Curiosity brought me to neuro-feedback. Bob Jones patiently answered all my questions. His knowledge, ability to explain and compassion helped me decide to experience neuro-feedback. Using my body’s own healing response, neuro-feedback lessened my anxiety, improved my focus and reduced the unproductive chatter in my mind. A great beginning!

Marissa at Infinite Mindcare has been instrumental in helping me heal from some very tough experiences in my life. She is a great counselor and helps me feel heard and understood every time I open up to her with my feelings and problems.  She is even available by phone for the times I didn’t feel well enough to leave my home. 

She took my healing to another level with the EMDR techniques that she is highly experienced in using. Not only did these techniques help me with current life issues, but the progress I’ve made with processing past traumas has been a life changer for me. Now when I experience a tough situation, I no longer automatically revert back to the same mental patterns that have been destructive for me throughout my life. Overthinking, blaming myself, and not feeling worthy is now being replaced with acceptance, loving myself and feeling worthy and deserving of love. Those patterns still try to creep back in but Marissa is there to help me continue on my journey to healing and she does so with no judgement. 

I am so thankful to have this therapy, as the benefits have helped me overcome a lot of the sadness, anxiety and despair that I was feeling. I can see and feel the progress I’ve made and that was made even more evident during a recent incident I experienced. I handled it more calmly than I thought possible and didn’t breakdown into PTSD mode as I would have in the past.
