Hey! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile :) I've been working in the mental health field for over 15 years now and understand the importance of finding a professional you can connect with. My goal in counselling is to start by creating a foundation of trust and then customizing techniques to best support you. Is it as simple as having a space where you can show up and be heard? Perhaps you're wanting to learn some customized coping skills? Or, maybe you've found you're feeling stuck and don't know what you need, I can help with that too.

I respect that everyone experiences life differently, coming to therapy with their own story. At times, the voice that tells the story is self-criticizing and judgemental, making us feel powerless. My hope for our work together is that you come back to yourself and recognize your inherent strength and capacity for growth. I will meet you in a space of authenticity and vulnerability as we explore your inner world and help you feel more connected to your mind and body. My practice is focused on helping you develop a stronger connection to self, others, and the world around you.

Or maybe you are looking for a place where you can be unapologetically yourself as you overcome the hurdles that life throws at you. I offer a comfortable setting where you can be your real self- you can laugh, swear, cry, grow, or wonder about the things that are hard to face. We can ask the hard questions- the ones that seem unanswerable. Whether you are going through a life transition, hardship or struggle, or perhaps you simply want to grow into your best self... therapy can help! You can heal.

You’re feeling burnt out, on edge and depleted to the point where you don’t know how to stop feeling this way. You feel disconnected from the things that made you the best version of yourself. You may not be sure who that is anymore. You might find coping skills and strategies that used to be effective are no longer working. You are less able to juggle what you were once easily capable of and you feel frustrated. Cumulative stress can take a significant toll on even the strongest and most motivated individuals. When there are too many stressors over a period of time without sufficient relief, even small things feel overwhelming.

You're struggling. Perhaps you can't sleep anymore, or you are seeking comfort in all the wrong places. Maybe you're depressed, finding it difficult to get out of bed and come out from under a cloud of ever-present despair. Maybe you're anxious - heart pounding, sweaty, shortness of breath, obsessive over simple tasks. Perhaps you are drinking too much or using drugs. You might even just be tired, withdrawn, sure that there is more to life but not sure what to do about it.

Therapy is never a one size fits all approach. We all are navigating different life circumstances that can impact how we are able to function. Working collaboratively we are able to understand where you are, and where you would like to be in your life. We go through many transitions that can be overwhelming, we can find ourselves stuck and not sure how to move forward. Through therapy, we can work towards understanding the narratives that are keeping us in place and work towards creating a future that you want. I work out of two clinics in Calgary - Core Psychology & MenzLeague - Book in for a free consultation today!

Has something happened to you and now you feel triggered? What if you no longer felt this way? I help people heal from traumatic experiences and the effects that these painful events have - anxiety, depression, nightmares, stress, emotional exhaustion, being stuck. The therapy I use to help people heal is EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing. Many people get relief from this therapy that they can't get from talk therapies.

Relationships in our lives present us with an infinite number of experiences that bring successes, challenges and everything in between. The stories that we live everyday contain relationships that form the foundation of our mental and physical well-being. There are times when we want the current stories in our life to continue and at other times we hope and need for something to change so that we can live the life we desire as an individual and in relation to others. Regardless of the challenges you are experiencing there is a way to find a path forward towards a desired story that will bring fulfillment and joy in your life.

Having someone in your life to listen, give you rational support, but who isn't directly a part of your day-to-day life is invaluable. It is important to know that your struggle is valid but with the right tools it is not necessary to suffer from it. I am here to help teach you those tools and support you though the ups and downs of life.

I am constantly amazed at the resilience we all show, as we navigate our lives amidst the challenges that invariably arise! Sometimes the demands on us outweigh the resources we have available in that moment. It takes a courageous person to recognize the need for, and to request and accept, support. I am honoured every time clients invite me to join them along their journeys toward improved insight, skill, interaction, and overall living.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In Canada, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

How much does therapy cost?

Some forms of mental health treatment (for example, seeing a psychiatrist, or seeing a psychologist in a government-funded hospital) are free under provincial health plans. Canadians who seek private counseling can typically expect to pay an average of $150 per session, although the actual price generally ranges between $100 and $300 per session, depending on their location and the type of provider they select. Workplace benefits or private insurance plans often provide an annual counselling allowance, and some therapists offer sliding scale fees to clients who cannot pay full price.
