My approach is strengths-based, using techniques from Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
While life can be joyful, it can sometimes be difficult. There may be times when it's useful to seek help outside of your current circle of support by talking with a therapist. As a therapist, it is important to me that there is a good "fit" between myself and potential clients as this helps to ensure that your therapy experience is the best possible. I have experience helping individuals coping with anxiety/depression, grief/loss and chronic or critical illness.

I draw from Emotion-Focused, Narrative, Mindfulness-Based, and Internal Family Systems therapies.
I’m an individual, couples, and family therapist. I value authenticity, curiosity, a non-judgemental stance, warmth and compassion. These values are integral to the way I approach working with clients. I believe in creating a safe space where people of all backgrounds are welcome, and where clients feel seen, heard, valued, and supported. I work together with clients to capitalize on their inherent strengths and skills, and to cultivate greater feelings of connection, authenticity, understanding, curiosity, compassion, and mindfulness in their lives.

If you are reading this you have already taken the scariest step; recognizing that you want help and support from a counsellor. Sometimes life gives us more than we can handle alone. It can be difficult for individuals to have healthy self-image and compassion, especially after experiencing disappointment, loss and trauma. Everyone has their own story that caused them to be in the place they currently are. And sometimes parts of our story interfere with us being able to move forward.

Life is full of challenges. We don't always have a choice what challenges we face. But we can choose how we view or overcome these challenges. I believe that we each have our own reserve of resilience waiting to be tapped into. Most of the time we have the strength to face these challenges. Sometimes we reach out to our friends and family for support and that is all we need. At other times, these challenges can overwhelm us and our system of support. We feel alone and helpless. When you are ready for change, let me support you in embracing your challenges and turn them into opportunities to learn something new about yourself.

Family Systems Counsellors
Family Systems therapists in Waterloo view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
