I draw from evidence based approaches including Internal Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I am passionate about therapy as I have witnessed the freedom, growth, and empowerment it can provide. I believe having a compassionate witness to our lives is inherently healing and it is an honour to be a part of this process. Our work together can help you to make sense of recurring feelings, behaviours, and experiences, and establish new ways of relating to self and others with an increased sense of connection. I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I hold an MA in Counselling and Spirituality with a specialization in couples therapy, as well as a BA in Psychology.

I encouraged clients to access inner strengths and free their capacity for growth. Whether you or a family member experience depression, anxiety, marital distress or difficulties with peers, you deserve support in a confidential, accepting, safe and caring environment.

We will work together to create achievable goals utilizing Cognitive, Psychodynamic and Emotionally Focused therapies, among others.
In my thirty eight years of providing social work and psychotherapy services, I have learned that people seek counselling when they find themselves in difficult and painful situations. To makes matters more complex, the coping skills that they have learned to date are not providing relief or resolution. To put it simply - my clients want help in becoming “unstuck”. Counselling provides an opportunity to be understood and to learn new ways of perceiving and solving problems. My clients are able to expand their capacity to cope with multiple stressors and conflicts and are able to create a new vision of themselves and their future.

I specialize in couples therapy and use the research-based Gottman Method, as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy.
It's normal to feel overwhelmed and alone when you are going though a challenging time. Psychotherapy - for individuals or couples - is a great way to receive guidance and emotional support from a non-judgmental neutral professional. It provides a safe and supportive environment to explore your thoughts and feelings and can teach you life-long skills, such as better communication in your relationships or tools for personal mental wellness. My aim is to help you nourish meaningful connection with yourself and your most important relationships.

I draw from evidence-based therapy approaches including, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems Theory.
Do you feel like your past is haunting you OR your future is taunting you? Until we address that anxiety, depression, or trauma, we will continue to feel out of control or that nothing ever changes. In counselling, we will explore your pattern of emotions, thoughts, and behaviours and how they are linked to the problems in your life. You will learn more yourself, your attachment styles, relationships, trauma responses, and more. You will learn to effectively cope in stressful situations by using advanced coping techniques from various therapy methods.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Oakville Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
