About

Life is a rich, complex and, at times, difficult journey that brings all kinds of challenges and rewards along its paths. Though the challenges come in many different forms (i.e., work pressure, relational difficulties, traumatic experiences, career uncertainty, life transition, etc.), they often bring a range of difficult emotion including fear, anxiety, sadness, confusion, anger, and loneliness. As a Registered Psychologist, I seek to help people respond more effectively to the various challenges and emotional difficulties they face. I also work with people who are seeking to enhance their wellbeing and live their lives with greater meaning and purpose.
Counselling is first and foremost a relational activity. I draw upon excellent interpersonal skills to build strong working relationships with my clients. I am known for being warm, caring, and empathic as well as for providing a safe and accepting counselling environment for the people I work with.
I utilize a variety of evidence-based approaches and do not apply a "cookie cutter approach" (i.e., one approach fits all) in my practice. Rather, I seek to select approaches that are well matched with my clients and the issues that they bring to counselling.
