If you simply need a safe place to work towards personal growth, self discovery, work/life balance, or living your best life, I would love to help you on your journey. If you are experiencing fertility setbacks that impact your identity or parenting/family challenges that others just don’t seem to understand, I would invite you to connect with me.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” —Anaïs Nin I am so glad that you found your way here!

We may lose sight of ourselves and our capacity for joy. I'm passionate about assisting adults and teens in overcoming daily challenges, healing from traumatic life experiences, and working towards creating a rich, full, and meaningful life.

I am a Registered Provisional psychologist with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta. My approach to therapy emphasizes the importance of confronting our painful emotions and experiences from a place of safety, curiosity, and honesty. I work with individuals and couples as well as teens and youth. I also have a special interest in working with men. I believe that men are often under resourced when it comes to accessing, expressing, and understanding their emotions, often leading to painful, yet avoidable, experiences.

Trauma can have such a complex impact on our wellbeing, and sometimes the healing process can feel really challenging. Trauma can affect how we think, feel, and act in the world and have us doubting ourselves. It’s okay to ask for help. Therapy can look like lots of things including exploring what happened to you, learning to be more connected in the present, and preparing for the future. Therapy can be about processing painful experiences, and it can be about reconnecting with joy and pleasure. Whatever your path, I will work with you to create a space for change.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Sherwood Park or for a Sherwood Park ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
