About

I am passionate about people and their overall well-being. I work with individuals, families, and couples who are facing some of life’s tough realities such as the breakdown of a relationship, divorce, loss, grief, and bereavement. I also work with children and young adults who are transitioning from one phase in life to another and who are finding the change overwhelming and sometimes difficult to manage (i.e. social, parental, relational, etc...). My primary therapeutic approach is cognitive-behavioral and my specialties include depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, and bereavement therapy.
I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy (diagnostic specific), in addition to evidence-based approaches such as motivational interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion, emotion-focused family therapy, and bereavement counseling. I work from a client-centred collaborative approach, where compassion for self and others is encouraged.
I work with clients to breakdown their emotional barriers and move forward in their lives in a healthy and meaningful way. I strive to support clients in their life's journey, where their own awareness and understanding allows for growth, builds self-confidence, provides forgiveness, fosters healthy relationships, and encourages overall well-being.
