About

I'm interested in helping mental health and healthcare workers, education workers, and first responders cope with the demands of these challenging and rewarding careers. I enjoy helping individuals overcome burnout and find their spark again. I am passionate about assisting families coping with perinatal mental health issues, birth and reproductive trauma, as well as the complexity that comes along with parenthood. I also assist adolescents and families navigate through crisis of suicidal ideation and attempts. I strive to help clients find balance in their life and feel like they are empowered and thriving.
I provide clinical counselling to clients using a variety of skills and techniques including Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Gratitude practices.
I bring both professional training and lived experiences to provide genuine emotional attunement in a comfortable and judgment free session. Let's get back on your pathway to wellness. You deserve to be fully well!
