About

People with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASD)/Autistic people experience the world differently. There is great diversity in those who are 'on the spectrum'. However, there are also challenges that are uniquely experienced by those with ASD. Our counselling service is tailored to serve Autistic people with specific modifications to address individual learning and communication styles. We serve individuals 10 years of age and older, as well as their families. To benefit from counselling, individuals must be able to talk about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
I am a Registered Psychologist with 10 years of experience working with people with Autism/Autistic people in a variety of roles. I specialize in psychotherapy/counselling for Autism and concurrent mental health concerns. I can also offer clients access to consultation and support from a Speech-Language Pathologist and Occupational Therapist, as needed.
I invite you to reach out to me so we can chat about how counselling might benefit you. **Please note that I only provide counselling services. I do not diagnose Autism/ASD nor do I provide formal assessment services.
