I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are coping with difficult behaviours, anxiety or mood concerns. Parents can often feel overwhelmed in helping their children, so I support families to help them manage life stressors and difficult emotions. My goal is to help children, youth, and parents have easier and more pleasant days. I use evidence-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Within my work helping youth, young adults, and parents, I have a specialty of helping people coping with medical conditions or anxiety about medical procedures.

My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. With the stressors of modern life, it is easy to lose one's way. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness, anxiety, depression or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

Your kids are freaking out after what happened, and you don’t know how to comfort them. You’re already exhausted after parenting through a pandemic for the last month and emotionally worn out. Now you’re feeling rattled because you never expected so much to strike so close to home. Your sensitive child is taking everything to heart and is very upset. It can feel overwhelming to search for words to reassure them. Nothing you try seems to comfort them for very long and you’re not sure if you’re even on the right track. If any of these challenges sound like what you're going through, please know that counselling can help.

I believe that all people were born with positive potential. Unfortunately, due to all kinds of hurt that happens in life, we unconsciously build layers of protection onto our inner Self, blocking our ability to see things clearly, and limit our capacity to respond to daily life in a healthy and constructive way.

From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING CLIENTS -SLIDING SCALE- The first part of the getting-to-know-you process I will complete an initial assessment to help determine the depth of your depression, anxiety, unhealthy coping strategies and other areas that may be causing you to feel stuck. After the assessment, we can explore your problem areas through collaborative discussions. For some people, just being able to talk freely about a problem brings relief, being validated and supported helps in the letting go process. We will move into a problem-solving phase together, finding enhanced ways of thinking, behaving and managing your feelings.
