Therapy and healing from past negative experiences is a journey and having effective support along the way is invaluable. With 20 years of working in mental health, I believe that one of the most powerful elements in healing and achieving a life worth living is authenticity in the therapeutic relationship. I also strive to bring compassion, humour, safety, respect and acceptance to the therapeutic process. Together, we will work to learn new effective coping skills, build on current strengths, take on new challenges that are in alignment with your personal values and goals and, heal from past painful experiences.

Contact for waitlist times. When it comes to working with children, youth, and young adults, the most common story I hear is that they do not feel seen or understood. Without feeling safe, they are stuck in a continuous loop of fight or flight responses which can lead to meltdowns, school avoidance, and risk-taking behaviours. Understanding that they are doing the best they can, I aim to help young people find safety and connection so that they can thrive within systems that do not always support living outside the “standard box.”

Being pulled in many different directions is exhausting. Work, family and personal stress can be overwhelming, and cause us to shut down, become upset or even feel anxious. From work to sleep to relationships, joy is missing. You might feel burned out, alone, and perhaps disconnected from your own body. You might have tried other resources and they aren't working. You don’t know where to turn. Here’s where I come in. I have worked through personal trauma, work-related stress, and experienced career changes. Now I seek to provide a safe place for people to find a helpful way forward.

If you're struggling with mental health, relationship, or addiction challenges, it can feel like your life is out of control and falling apart. It's not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, scared, hopeless, helpless and alone. Or to feel numb. We all experience occasional difficulties in response to life’s challenges, but there are times when we feel particularly stuck or discouraged and we need some extra support. It can be difficult to share your most private experiences with someone new, especially if those experiences have caused you shame, and we have a deep respect for those who are willing to pursue counselling.

In my initial sessions, clients usually say, “I want someone that gets me.” This is a shared feeling; I also want my therapist to “get me” and connect with me. Hence, I use evidence-based approaches to build this connection with my clients, honoring their stories and enabling them to feel heard, unjudged, and respected. This alliance, I believe, is fundamental to the results we collaboratively attain in therapy. I work with children, teens, young adults, seniors, couples, and families from a person-centered, systemic, and strength-based lens.

In-person sessions available beginning in April 2024. It can be frustrating and confusing when life looks good on the outside but doesn’t feel good on the inside; feeling tired, overwhelmed and disconnected from the things you worked so hard to have. Therapy may seem like one more thing to do in an already busy life, but there is part of you that is curious about whether it could make a difference. As a Ph.D. level Clinical Psychologist, I have spent the past 10 years successfully treating adults with depression, anxiety, OCD, insomnia, perfectionism, life stress, and relationship difficulties.

While it may take courage to reach out for a first therapy session, nobody is meant to face life's difficulties alone. In my practice, I primarily support those struggling with grief and loss, anxiety, stress, burnout, depression, emotional regulation, difficult or unexpected life-transitions, communication, and finding a healthy balance in one’s life. In my Counselling and Spirituality Master’s Program, I was taught to consider the whole person in treatment. In this way, if a client wishes to incorporate their values and spirituality in therapy, I am happy to do so in a way that honours their own cultural or faith background.
