I draw from a range of therapeutic modalities including Somatic Experiencing, Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy to suit individual needs.
It takes courage to begin the counselling process. When you make the choice to work through painful feelings, to change damaging behaviours, or to build stronger relationships, your life improves in many ways. My role is to provide a counselling relationship that allows you to feel safe to share your experiences, feelings and thoughts. I offer a confidential space, support and feedback in order to help you to make the changes you identify.​ ​I am passionate about supporting people in building their capacity to connect with the wisdom of their body and emotions and to return to a felt sense of safety and connection to self.

Do not let the terms make your head spin, it’s a list, not a to-do list! Trauma Informed: CBT; Mindfulness; Narrative; DBT informed techniques; IFS & IFIO; Gottman techniques; Play Therapy.
Making the first call can be the hardest part about engaging in counselling. There's a million things that get in the way of that first call, and a lot of nerve (and time!) that it takes to make it. Whether this is your first engagement, or your hundredth, with counselling, it is my belief that if you’re thinking you may want to try therapy, you are welcome in therapy – even if you can’t quite picture getting there, or what you’ll even say, even if you’re just bringing a feeling or a common fight you feel stuck in. Currently accepting new clients in person and online.

I am always learning and have trained in CBT, DBT , ACT, IFS, Attachment, Gender Identity, and Sex Therapy.
Life is tough, especially lately. Expectations are overwhelming, your to-do list keeps growing, and there's not enough time in the day. You may be trying to please everyone and end up feeling burnt out or never good enough. School or work feel like too much to handle, and self-care seems like another "should". If you're thinking: "I don’t know what to do. I’m exhausted. I’m so frustrated. I want to feel more like myself (again). I want things to change", know that you can build a life worth living. These are the things I have often heard from my clients - and we can work with that! Recovery is possible and life can get better.

My training in multiple modalities, CBT, DBT , addictions, mindfulness and more means there's science behind the rapport.
My clients are looking to lead a balanced life with the perspective and tools to face challenges with resilience and optimism. Anxiety, depression, compulsive thoughts or addictions might be getting in the way of relationship or life goals. My clients are hoping to find practical problem solving in their sessions with me but also build bigger picture thinking and perhaps even get into the big philosophical questions that are a part of making life feel worth living. They value a genuine, human experience with an open-minded, culturally sensitive supporter, that allows them to tap into their own resources for long term well-being.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Kingston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Kingston specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
