I provide a caring and safe environment for my clients, valuing the process of getting to understand them on a deeper level. Therapy will be both emotionally explorative and solution-focused each session, allowing the client to learn about one’s thoughts and feelings, as well as develop coping skills in order to reduce negative symptoms. I have gathered experience working with adolescents, adults and couples, with a special interest in DBT group therapy, individual therapy for anxiety, depression, mood disorders, self-harm and trauma, as well as couples therapy, focusing on relational, marital and/or sexual difficulties.

As an experienced therapist, I offer individual, couple’s and family counselling. Whether it’s addiction based issues, such as substance use, gambling and sex, or emotional issues from our journey as young children, many of these issues can be concurrent with many mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, etc. Any one or a combination of these can keep us from finding our true, authentic selves. Through therapy, you can have the chance to be heard, believed and empowered. These are key to our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual recovery as individuals and together.

Perhaps you’re wondering what counselling is all about? Or can I really get the help I need? Maybe you’re even trying to decide, will it be worth it? It’s okay to be uncertain, have questions, and even not know where to begin. Counselling is a collaborative process where you can share: • Whatever is on your mind...how did I get to this point? I don’t even recognize myself! • What' happening in your life...what did I do wrong? It wasn’t supposed to be like this! • Consider future goals...where did the time go? This job was placeholder. • Reconcile past events...when will it stop? I can't let go!

Psycho-educational assessments are used to clarify an individual's learning style and academic ability. They may be used to identify giftedness, or to diagnose learning disorders, intellectual disabilities, autism, and behavioral disorders. Vocational assessments help individuals explore career interests and skills.

Within the past two years, we have all undergone significant change within our lives. Change can be difficult, and for some this has been grief. This grief can be the loss of a job, loss of social time, loss of alone time, loss of friendships, loss of a loved one, or even a loss for what could have been. Grief is mentally and physically exhausting and I recognize the strength and courage it takes to reach out to someone for help. You deserve a space to be heard and have someone understand the pain and struggle you’ve experienced.

The stress of COVID-19 has negatively impacted people’s mental health, while also leaving them in an economic situation where they cannot afford counselling at full prices. We believe that this unique time requires counsellors to give their services at prices which more people can afford. If the stress of COVID-19 has affected your mental health, we have professional counsellors that can work with you.
