My areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, OCD, relationship issues,addictions, financial issues, anger management, bereavement, self-esteem, sexuality, transgendered/transexual, trauma, workplace issues, MVA, and eating disorders.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families. I work with clients to improve their resiliency and help to uncover their strengths. I use different modalities to meet the individual's needs. I use a client-centred approach that gives the client the ability to drive the sessions' goals. I help clients connect the dots between patterns that were established in their childhood and its manifestations in adult life. This aids in understanding the connection between the two and enables an exploration of ways to alter them.

More specifically, I guide individuals through challenges like anxiety, relationship breakups, OCD, depression, and life transitions.
Did life just throw more than one lemon at you? Perhaps you got hit with ten, and now there are just too many to make lemonade and you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, sad/lonely, and falling apart. I hear you. I see you…and I want to help. I specialize in helping people feel better by using techniques that are supported by facts and research. I help clients gain a deeper understanding of how small changes in their thinking can have a significant impact on their mood and behaviour. We'll also have an opportunity to discuss short-term and long-term goals and how we would get there together.

You are a middle-aged adult with a family and a full-time job. Things seem to be ok on the surface, but deep down you have an exhausting feeling of disconnect from life (loss of interest in any activities, feeling emotionally numb, losing sense of direction in life). Anxiety and stress is taking you away from enjoying your life. You have a very low sense of self-worth and always highly negative towards yourself. You are very sensitive to criticism, can become triggered easily, often snap at kids and loved ones. You wish to change the way you feel about yourself and others, get a sense of connection and zest for life.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline, among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
