My therapeutic approach is informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy.
I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. I understand that reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, and a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from having the life you want. With me you will find a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma-informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.

I have years of experience working with individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their everyday lives and feel they need a little extra support. Some of my clients may struggle with mental illness on a regular basis, while others may be faced with circumstances that contribute to situational increase in stress. The effects of both can have short- or long-term effects. I have experience working with children, youth and families who are navigating pathways through addiction, mental health concerns, post-traumatic stress, life transitions or school/work-related stress, just to name a few.

Are you struggling in this crazy world? Do you feel anxious, sad, frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and/or tired? Do you feel lost and alone, that no one understands you, that you are fighting your struggles alone? Is it difficult to muster the motivation and energy to do things you once enjoyed? Are you constantly embroiled in conflict with those you love? Do you wish things were better, that you felt better, that the pain, sadness, and conflict would go away and in its wake would come happiness, peace, contentment, and joy?

Trauma occurs many ways – abuse, accidents, divorce, death and it can suck the life right out of you. Maybe you’ve had sleepless nights and restless mornings and it does not feel worth it to get out of bed. Maybe you've thought of harming yourself or possibly had suicidal thoughts. Trauma can affect all parts of your life; your relationships, your ability to work, your ability to feel safe and happy. Sometimes you feel like all is well and that you have dealt with it. You feel fine and 6 months later it feels like it just happened, It is possible to get your life back. Reach out, I can help.
