I am a Registered Clinical Social Worker with a Master of Social Work degree, specialization in Clinical Social Work. My primary area of focus is divorce and separation, working with the entire family, children (over 12) and individuals going through this big family change. I work with families in the Collaborative Family Law Process, voluntary process, or with those under court-ordered interventions. I believe in early intervention with families going through this difficult time prior to conflict escalating, however if conflict is set in then a direct, solution-focused approach is key.

I have been appointed as a Parenting Expert in clinical interventions and custody evaluations. I have supported couples in developing skills to strengthen their relationships. I have experience assisting children, adolescents, and adults in dealing with anxiety, depression, Post traumatic stress disorder, Bipolar disorder, and other psychiatric diagnoses.

Having worked with children and families in a variety of capacities for 27 years, I am thrilled to use play therapy techniques to assist children 3 years old and up in navigating emotions, experiences such as separation and divorce, and learn new skills and coping tools.
Working from a client-centered approach I acknowledge that every person has their own unique set of experiences. Rather than utilizing a single methodology I follow an integrative approach to draw at tools, philosophies and evidence based interventions from a variety of methodologies to support individuals, couples and families as they navigate their past, present and future. I value sharing a comfortable and judgement free space for all people.

I have a decade of therapeutic experience during which I have supported individuals living with stress, anxiety, and depression, who have experienced loss and grief through death, divorce or break-up, pet loss, infidelity, intimate partner abuse, age and/or injury out of sport, unplanned career change, caregiver burnout, and various life transitions.
Loss is a universal experience. However, many of us are ill prepared to deal with the conflicting mass of emotions we call grief. While the emotional incompleteness can have a lifelong, cumulatively negative impact on our capacity for happiness, it doesn't have to. The Grief Recovery Method provides the correct action choices that help people move beyond the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss of any kind. I strive to provide a safe space within which you as a client can make these choices and move toward healing and recovery.

Divorce Counsellors

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
