About

Throughout my 13 years working in the mental health field, I have learned that the process of therapy is as unique as the people who choose to take this brave journey into themselves. Challenges and difficulties are a reality of life, and therapy is geared toward supporting you as you address uncomfortable feelings or other Psychological needs as you move toward relief. It is about becoming present and aware in your life from a non-judgemental place. Because wellness is different for everyone, no struggles are too small for therapy.
My main interests and areas of practice include psychotherapy, with a focus on emotions for adolescent and adult populations, assessments and consultation. I am also equipped to service those clients with more complex symptomology and/or a more complex presentation. I also provide quality, personalized supervision for Provisional Psychologists.
Happy to provide services in the areas of clinical and forensic psychology with adults, and adolescents in English and French. My ultimate goal is always to provide my clients with the utmost quality of help as you navigate through troubling times in life in a comfortable and supportive environment.
