Announcement icon I am now accepting new clients for in-person and remote therapy. Feel free to use our website to book a session or a free consultation!

About

I share a common human experience with my clients and appreciate our journeys. Maybe you're considering therapy to connect with someone non-judgmental and outside your personal support system; you're feeling uneasy or worrying about life; you're withdrawing from others and no longer find joy and pleasure; substance use or a habitual behaviour is getting in the way of meaningful relationships and meeting life’s challenges; or you experienced a major event in your life and you're feeling overwhelmed. We will endeavour to understand these challenges and I will support you in taking steps that would benefit you.
I use a variety of therapeutic styles: DBT, CBT, internal family systems, emotion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, harm-reduction, brief solution focused therapy and the triphasic model of trauma therapy. We will collaborate on a therapeutic plan and strategies to practice that would benefit you on your journey.
To learn more about my offerings to individuals, couples and families, please visit my webpage. Feel free to connect with me by phone or email. You can also book an in-person or virtual session, or a free 15-minute phone consultation, using the booking system on our site. I’d be happy to support you in taking the next step on your journey.
