About

'Challenge brings change". Easy to say, yet difficult to do. Victor Frankl wrote, "when we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves", (Man's Search for Meaning, 1946). When we find ourselves in difficult situations, we have choice - remain in the pain, or seek support to move through. I know life's greatest challenges have brought incredible change to my life, but it hasn't been easy. You don't need to face challenge and change alone.
I am a strengths-based, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive therapist. Trained in solution-focused and cognitive-behavioural therapy. Experience working with survivors of crime and trauma, mental health and addiction. My specialty is supporting people in conflict, (including parent-teen struggles and youth in crisis), as well as families experiencing addiction.
Infertility, separation and divorce, single-parenting, adoption, blended families, parent-teen conflict, depression and anxiety, addiction and recovery are all personal challenges that have brought incredible change to my life. I have 26 years of professional and educational experience to help, but also 46 years of lived experience to relate.
