About

I specialize in helping people who are struggling with addiction issues and/or anxiety, mood or personality disorders. I really enjoy working with ‘stuck’ clients. Those people who know they want or need change but aren’t sure how to get there. You are not broken, and you do not need to be fixed. You might be feeling a little lost though. Let me serve as a guide to walk with you and show you some possible ways out. You don't need to commit to any long term therapy or all the 'what ifs' at this point. All you need to do is reach out and make that first connection. Let's have a conversation about what's going on.
I have a more laid back style of counselling, which is very client-centered, strengths-based, and solution-focused. I draw mainly from CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) approaches. I like to talk, and I love to listen. I'm here to support you and help you feel safe. I'm also here to challenge you and watch you grow.
I'm a registered Social Worker who has been in the mental health & addiction field for over 17 years working with both youth and adults in treatment, prevention and harm reduction settings. I am very down to earth and also bring my own lived experience to the table. If this sounds helpful then let's get started. I look forward to connecting with you.
