I focused my master’s research on the interceptions of non-nociceptive pain and resilience, so have an interest in working with chronic pain and chronic illness .
Relationship-building and a strong therapeutic alliance come at the core of the work that I do. To me, it is important to create a space that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and relaxed, so that clients can feel open to share. I find importance in meeting each client where they are at, and with young clients (or young at heart) have been known to use creative formats for engagement such as: games, art, sand tray therapy, music or going on walks. I am able to do work with children, adolescents, and adult clients. I have over a decade of experience working with children/youth and adults, both in a counselling and teaching capacity.

For over 10 years I've been counselling people with a range of stressors and mental illnesses to manage and improve their quality of life, largely within a university setting. My interest and focus for private practice is in working with people suffering from the impacts of trauma, anxiety and emotional dysregulation in general, and with challenges related to chronic illness . It has been my privilege to work with clients from very diverse backgrounds in my career, and I welcome adults of all ages, genders, cultures, ethnicities and faith traditions.

My practice areas include dying, death, grief and bereavement, palliative care, chronic illness , stress and burnout, loss, and life transitions.
Grief counselling - the death of a loved one is so hard and you don't have to grieve alone. I work collaboratively, at the clients pace, providing a safe non-judgmental space for clients to be heard and to support them in drawing upon their own strengths in order to mourn well. My professional experiences stem from working as a Social Worker and a Therapist for over 25 years in hospice palliative care, community organizations, and in private practice. I work with both adults and children (children up to the age of 11). I also provide counselling for those caring for a loved one at the end of life.

Sometimes the world out there feels like a big old dumpster fire...and we're just putting out flames. Anxiety, sadness and fear are normal human responses to what's going on. We can find the way through for you. I believe that we can co- create a narrative of compassion, courage, and fun. I work with couples struggling to keep their relationships. I am a fierce ally of the LGBTQ2S+ community, I embrace the multiplicity and complexities of gender and sexual experiences. I collaborate with young people struggling to establish themselves in a complicated world. I also support people living with chronic illness .

You might be feeling disconnected from yourself or feel like there are too many things out of your control right now. You don't have to feel this way and there is hope. I provide care to those experiencing a variety of issues, with a focus on chronic illness , anxiety, stress, and burnout. Throughout therapy, we will work to understand the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs associated with what you are experiencing and work with the body sensations that accompany these, such as tension in the body or stomach aches. By reconnecting to yourself I hope I can help you learn more about yourself, so you heal and grow as a result.

My area of focus is health and wellness counselling, and I help clients who are experiencing stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, insomnia, or who have goals related to personal exploration and personal growth. One of my areas of specialization that I'm particularly passionate about is providing support to individuals living with chronic illness or chronic pain.

Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness .

These include anxiety and depression, work burnout, and living with chronic illness .
Are you looking to develop insight into how to change negative patterns of thinking and behaviour in your life? I use cognitive behavioural therapy, which is based on years of research and empirical evidence, to help people get to the roots of their problems and make lasting change. For some clients, I integrate mindfulness training into my approach. This involves developing self-compassion, accepting what we cannot control and living in the present moment. I strongly believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, and take a very active role in guiding my clients.

I work collaboratively with clients to help them find the most effective, long-term solutions to their challenges.

In life, we get many chances to rewrite our stories. Healing can be found when we connect with our true nature; when we unite with the parts of us that we have disconnected from because of stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, anger, chronic illness , disability, shame, or guilt. I see my role as creating a container to support you in developing a deeper relationship with yourself, your community, and your greater environment.

Sometimes we all need a little support and guidance to help us through challenging moments in our life.

Perhaps you are grieving a loss of something or someone important to you or maybe you are in the process of a life transition and are seeking some support. Regardless of what brings you here, we will work together to develop a better understanding of your current situation and how it impacts you in all areas of your life.

Your mind is constantly telling you that you need to do more, but it's hard just to get out of bed in the morning. Chronic pain makes everyday tasks really hard. Everyone around you seems normal and you wonder how they have it all together. Maybe family and friends are supportive, but you worry about being a burden. Or maybe your life is good on paper and nobody sees your struggles, nobody sees your pain. As someone who has lived with chronic pain and anxiety, I know how hard life can get. I understand how isolating it can all be.
