It can feel so scary and isolating to face all the challenges life throws at you, but you don’t have to face them alone. I understand how vulnerable it can feel to reach out for help, so whether this is your first time reaching out for support or your tenth, please take the time to admire your strength. You deserve a space where you can feel validated, seen and heard. Trauma can come in many forms and everyone holds on to it differently. Let's work together to lighten the load you've been carrying for so long and determine what a meaningful life looks like for you.

In developing a safe and respectful environment, I strive to help clients feel comfortable to start the journey of recovery from addiction, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and/or anger. I understand the journey of recovery from substance use disorders is not easy but I am here to support clients towards their goals. I also understand life transitions of individuals, especially athletes and how mental health is a large component of an athlete's identity.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. Reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, or a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can comfortably uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from living the life you deserve. My goal is to provide a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma-informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.

Have you ever driven home from work and ended up in the drive way with no idea how you got there? Thinking the same thoughts over and over and not been able to get to sleep? Reacted by saying things you wish you hadn’t? Yep, we’ve all been there. Through learning evidence-based mindfulness exercises, my clients learn how to re-wire their brains, change their inner dialogue, and create more space in their lives. Mindfulness training can be therapeutic, however it differs from therapy; we learn how to let go of our usual thinking, story-telling, and analyzing modes by exploring what is actually here right now.

One of the consequences of stress is re-experiencing it in the mind and body, leaving us depleted and disconnected from life. Intense reactions can be confusing and distressing. Making sense of our experiences, putting them in perspective, and changing unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving, and coping increases our resilience. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and have a particular interest in survivors of sexual violence and exploitation; first responders, frontline workers, military, veterans and their families; survivors of adverse childhood experiences; workplace stress and life transitions; and older adults.

You’re probably feeling overwhelmed, having scrolled through a million profiles and not sure who to pick to reach out to! Bottom line, you won’t know if a therapist is a good fit for you until you really get to know them. Much like a pair of shoes, you gotta try them on! Because the most important part of successful therapy is feeling comfortable and connected with your therapist. As a therapist, I try to create an atmosphere based on that famous east coast hospitality that we Newfoundlanders are so well known – a sense of warmth, comfort, connection and genuine caring.

Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to look for the right Counsellor- ME! LOL! Finding a Counsellor who is warm, kind, humorous and inviting will help you open up. We can talk about whatever is troubling you and stealing peace in your life. We can find solutions, a plan and goals in helping you move forward or recover. Sometimes clients have mental illness, relationship or personal problems that are stopping them from leading the best life possible. My work is to help you find out what the problem is and to find out what supports and strengths you already have and used in the past. Together we will explore solutions.

The focus of my practice is to treat people who have emotional dysregulation - stress! This can be due to a mood or personality disorder, chronic pain, trauma or complex trauma, military service, or a major life transition. I use practical, evidence based therapies such as DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Clinical Hypnosis, and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to help you fulfill your goals, getting back to living a meaningful, peaceful, productive life.

I offer an authentic, non-judgmental, relational approach to therapy, and prioritize openness and collaboration in the therapeutic relationship. Acknowledging and appreciating the uniqueness of individual circumstances, I employ an individual approach to practice. I am a trauma informed, and strengths focused clinician, working from an anti-oppressive framework, who believes an effective therapeutic relationship is one of the greatest vehicles for change. Each individual is the expert of their own life, and therefore sessions are client focused and client paced.
