Life can be difficult. Trying to address these difficulties ourselves may feel overwhelming. I support the individuals I meet by working collaboratively with them in non-judgmental, supportive environments where goals can be established, and movement towards positive change can occur regardless of where one might be in the change process. I believe in highlighting a person's strengths, and empowering them to achieve what they are hoping to. I respect that each person's needs within therapy are unique, so it is a primary focus of mine to develop meaningful therapeutic relationships so I can most clearly understand and support those unique needs.

I have specialized training in Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure which are the most effective treatments for trauma and PTSD. I employ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for depression, anxiety, and a number of other concerns including relationship, interpersonal or occupational challenges, life transitions, stress, and grief, to name a few.

I am also trained in the Gottman Method for couples counselling, supporting couples struggling with conflict and communication concerns. I have diverse experience working with a variety of clientele, including first responders, and eight years working specifically with serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and Veteran's.
