About

Starting therapy for yourself, your child, teen, or relationship can be overwhelming. I get it! It’s important to me to provide you with a safe and welcoming space, free of judgment. I will hear your concerns, provide validation, and guide your journey by developing a therapeutic relationship built on the foundation of trust, acceptance and hope. I am trained to support folks across the lifespan. I see children, teens, high school and college students, parents, adults, perinatal, pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, and couples. Whatever your struggle is, you don’t have to be alone. Reaching out is the first step. Just start there.
Therapy is unique to you and is based on your priorities. In session, I invite you to relax on my couch (or my giant bean bag chairs!), share a cup of coffee and talk about what has been on your mind. We will explore your thoughts and feelings around these issues as I integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches based on you or your child’s individual needs
I know it’s tough to get started. Just send me an email or text and we can chat to see if counselling is a good fit for you or your child. I'm a Certified Counsellor CCC and Naturopath ND with training in CBT, DBT, Strengths Based, Play Therapy, ABA, JASPER, Perinatal, Postpartum, Infertility, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT, and Couples Therapy.
