About

Asking for help takes a lot of courage and is the first step towards making a positive change in one’s life. With each and every client I work with, I use a non-judgmental, inclusive, person-centred approach to care. I specialize in helping people manage stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, life transitions, and relationship issues. While some problems may seem insurmountable right now, I am here to help you break them down into achievable goals and develop strategies to better cope with the challenges you are facing.
I have been practicing social work in health care for thirty years and have extensive experience with trauma counseling. I use an eclectic approach incorporating CBT, problem-solving techniques, crisis intervention, and solution-focused therapy to best address your concerns. I am also trained as a family professional in collaborative divorce practice.
My approach with clients is one of compassion and understanding. I provide a warm and safe environment to help people understand and work towards resolving their issues in a very positive and supportive manner. I have a genuine sense of warmth and have over 30 years experience working with individuals, families and couples.
