About

I firmly believe in the healing power of relationship and I strive to nurture my clients’ connection to loved ones and significant others. I believe that positive change starts with healthy individuals who then form healthy relationships and establish positive child-parent connections. These relationships give rise to healthy families and thriving communities. To me, empathy and compassion are at the heart of healthy connection and by creating a space for these qualities to flourish, we take the first steps toward healing.
To me, the therapeutic relationship is an essential starting place for positive growth. Therapy is a space to be received and welcomed, a space where we can look at life’s challenges with a compassionate eye so that we may be curious about what changes might make life more enjoyable.
At my clinic, The Counselling Space, I am pleased to announce that I work with a number of talented therapists who are welcoming new clients with no more than a 1-2 week wait for an initial session. Further, I am delighted to share that our Master's Level Student Therapist is available to provide Low Cost Counselling Services. Please reach out for details!
