I have a strong belief in the healing process of therapy and have worked for over 20 years supporting people who are in psychological and emotional pain. I help people find stability and reconnect with themselves, as they do the important work of reclaiming and changing their life for the better. Whether you have thought about trying therapy for a long time, perhaps it's a brand new idea, or even if you have done some "healing" work in the past and feel like it is time to tackle new challenges - I am here to help.

The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with women and their partners in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

Things have been difficult and they haven't been able to overcome their problems alone or with their friend's advice. My clients need someone to listen, someone who knows about the fake face, someone who can help them understand "why"; and help them find a way to get healthy.

**Wait list only** Finding the right therapist and committing to the process of psychotherapy isn't easy. If you’re ready to develop insight and strategies in an accepting environment, l'm ready to use humour, energy, and warmth to supplement principles from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and other methods to customize an approach. I work with women in many stressful circumstances, and particularly enjoy working with those newly diagnosed with a mood or anxiety disorder, supporting a loved one with mental illness, or having difficulty regulating their emotions.
