About

I believe that lasting change starts with developing an understanding of the thought patterns and behaviours that occur in response to the challenges we encounter. I work collaboratively with each client to explore both their strengths and current difficulties in order to develop and improve coping skills, as well as create meaningful change in their lives. I foster a compassionate and empathetic therapeutic relationship that allows clients to feel respected, understood, and empowered.
I am a PhD trained clinical and health psychologist with expertise providing both therapy and diagnostic assessment. I work with adults (18+) and older adults (65+) who may have been struggling with mental health or physical health concerns for a long time or have noticed difficulties in light of more recent life stressors.
My areas of practice include anxiety/phobias, trauma, insomnia, depression, stress management, and difficulties related to transition, caregiving, or coping with illness (e.g., cancer). I practice cognitive-behavioural therapy and integrate other evidence-based approaches depending on my clients’ unique needs and goals. I look forward to connecting with you!
