I enjoy working with adults, adolescents and couples. My experience includes working with individuals that have challenges ranging from self-esteem concerns, anxiety, stress, depression, assertiveness, boundaries and spiritual concerns. I also enjoy working with couples who are struggling within their relationship and want some guidance to improve their skills, to communicate and resolve conflict effectively; which will often enhance the connection you feel with each other.

Experienced Ph.D. level registered psychologist, practicing in Calgary since 1987. I enjoy helping motivated individuals in therapy. I combine clinical training with personal authenticity and sensitivity to diversity and socialization influences on how we handle what we are facing. Effective therapy is collaborative and empowering, with therapist and clients working together to make positive changes towards the clients' goals. This may involve learning to self-soothe, anti-depressant behaviours, and homework between sessions. Good therapy builds on strengths.

It is so hard to be a woman in 2023! We received constant messaging throughout our lives about what it means to be a woman and a mom. As a result, we internalize these unrealistic and patriarchal standards and can be left feeling like a failure when we inevitability do not measure up. No wonder so many women and moms feel stressed, burnt out, inadequate, and worthless! How do we cope? We beat ourselves up because we believe we are the problem. Many of us developed a strong inner-critic and unhelpful habits to cope with these pressures and the sensed failure. I promise you that you are not a failure - society has failed you.

Throughout my professional life I have had the opportunity to work with children, teenagers and adults who have struggled with issues such as grief and loss, depression and suicidal ideation, anxiety, interpersonal relationship difficulties, and self-esteem issues. I take a relaxed and non-judgmental approach in working with clients, in hopes that therapy will be as comfortable and organic as possible. I recognize that struggling from time to time is an inevitable part of life, and sometimes you just need a little bit of outside help, or a different perspective, while you work through the tough times.

Self Esteem Counsellors

When should a person seek therapy for low self-esteem?

When self-esteem problems begin to disrupt the healthy daily functioning of an individual, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not engaging with friends for fear of being judged, not completing work assignments because they don’t think they’re capable, or not finding romantic love because they don’t feel they’re worthy of it, a therapist may be able to help.

What are the signs of low self-esteem?

Low self-esteem is a common issue that can affect a person's mental and emotional well-being. Some common signs of low self-esteem include negative self-talk, perfectionism, social anxiety, difficulty making decisions, an inability to set boundaries, people-pleasing, and others. A lack of belief in oneself or one’s abilities and a feeling of not being worthy or deserving underlie most of these characteristics.

What causes low self-esteem?

Feelings of low self-worth can begin in childhood or adulthood. Being raised by a highly critical parent or growing up feeling constant disapproval can stay with a person well into adulthood. Specific issues in adulthood may also be a cause of low self-esteem. An unhappy relationship, a dysfunctional work or school experience can impact a person’s feelings of self-worth.

How can therapy improve self-esteem?

Therapists can help identify negative thought patterns that keep the client stuck in a loop of destructive self-talk and develop coping skills to change the voice in their head. A therapist can help with goal-setting, so that clients are better able to stay on task and build confidence from successfully completing work they’re proud of. Coaching a client on how to better communicate can improve relationships. These skills can result in someone with low self-esteem feeling empowered and living with less fear.
