I am a registered social worker with a Master of Social Work degree from Wilfred Laurier University, and have specializations in attachment & developmental trauma; sexual abuse; complex trauma and Borderline Personality Disorder.
A Sanctuary is a place of comfort, safety and healing, a refuge from the storms of our life. I aim not only to provide a sanctuary for my clients but to help them build one within themselves. Whatever you are struggling with I can help you to navigate by providing a safe & comforting environment where you can explore your own unique path to healing, growth and change. Together we will address the current issues as well as the relational patterns, experiences and beliefs that wound your sense of belonging and create obstacles to living a meaningful and fulfilling life.

I primarily use Narrative Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Informed Therapy (DBT) as the basis for my work with clients. My work includes looking at how the past may be influencing the present, unpacking behaviours, regulating emotions, interpersonal relationships, impulsivity, and increasing mindfulness. I provide support that looks at people as a whole: physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. I have worked alongside individuals with a range of concerns and have worked specifically with borderline personality disorder, personality disorders, trauma and complex trauma.

Throughout my professional experience as a clinician working in different settings, I have had the privilege and honor to help thousands of people like yourself with a wide range of issues like depression, anxiety, BPD, addiction, grief, parenting, chronic illness.
Being anxious, sad, overwhelmed or having no hope can have a negative impact on your physical and mental health. Seeking help might not be easy; and opening up and revealing yourself in therapy can be intimidating. This is why most people who suffer mentally and emotionally, do not seek help, often being forced to cope in unhealthy ways to seek temporary relief. But you are here because you are seeking help, congratulations for taking your first step towards healing!

With 20 years experience working in the community with clients with depression & anxiety, and issues with trauma, grief & loss, anger & chronic pain, it is my pleasure and honour to help people in sometimes the most difficult times of their lives. Having 17 years of working in Canada's largest inpatient mental health facility, I have participated in the care of thousands of clients with mental/emotional health issues. I prefer working with people who present with persistent symptoms (ie. people with PTSD, children of alcoholics, growing up with a "borderline" parent). Expressive therapies (art & psychodrama) are often very effective for these groups of people.

I facilitated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatments for Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Social and Generalized Anxiety, Panic Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and also facilitated Dialectical Behavioural Therapy programs for Borderline Personality Disorders.
I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples. This might be the first time you are seeking counselling or you may be seeking for a different counselling experience, picking the right counsellor for you is important. It is important to understand how we interpret our experiences and how they affects us. Our environments also have the ability to impact the way we interpret our experiences and interactions; it can be helpful to develop an awareness of the common miscommunication we experience based on our past experiences and in challenging ourselves to take steps towards wellness.

Perhaps you're down or anxious, feeling trapped or distressed? Maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you want to lead? Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support and guidance. Therapy is a process of insight building, growth, and self-discovery. In my sessions I promote emotional intelligence, deeper emotional connection with others, and helping you broaden your understanding of your behaviours, feelings, or reactions (yes, we don't always know why we do some things we do). I have both the professional and life experience to help you get back on track. ​

You know how sometimes in life we feel like we should just know how to deal? Well I have extensive experience working with people who have felt that way, and who feel like they are struggling sometimes just to make it through their days. I work with issues that are sometimes too difficult to talk about such as: professional burnout, vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, relationship conflict that impacts personal and professional well-being, even suicidal thoughts. I am able to help to understand, and most importantly, help guide and support change in functioning and behaviour.

Do you find yourself struggling with feelings of inadequacy? No matter what you do, this feeling, and the self-criticisms that come with it feel impossible to shake? Maybe you find yourself worrying about the future, doubting your capability to cope with whatever life is about to throw at you next. Perhaps you can even see repetitive behaviours that keep you stuck, but you can't find a way to change these ingrained habits. The degree to which these things effect everyone lies on a continuum. Some struggle with low self-esteem, others depression and anxiety, and trauma can lead to severe changes in many of these areas.

Borderline Personality Counsellors
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
