*Note that I work with individuals aged 4 to 21 and I am only accepting clients for psychoeducational and psychological assessments currently. I have been fortunate to spend the past decade exploring my passion in helping those with learning challenges build strategies for success, and supporting people to address mental health barriers and adversity. My early career focused on researching motivational factors that contribute to learning and interventions, while I later developed a passion for working in applied psychology settings working in clinics, hospitals and the school board.

My overall goal is to treat and support individuals by using the best possible practices and innovations. I do this by collaborating with the client to create a customized treatment plan for them. I use appropriate therapeutic counselling, interventions and education to help them overcome their mental health issues and life stresses. I want to work in partnership with individuals to achieve their full health potential. I don't simply direct a course of action; I work in collaboration with the client to help them build on their strengths and see options they may not have considered.

As a person and a counsellor, I believe that everyone, regardless of life circumstances, wants to feel connected and understood. Unfortunately, in today's fast-paced society, often times people do not feel heard or listened to, connected to others, and least of all understood. This being said, I believe that the relationship developed between myself and my client is the most crucial component of counselling. It is my hope that at the end of your sessions, you will develop positive coping strategies while healing unresolved feelings; but above all, that you leave feeling heard, understood and cared for.

Welcome! This is a weird process, right? I know finding a therapist can feel daunting. Maybe you’ve never done therapy and you have no idea what to expect. Maybe you’ve tried it before, but you want something different. Maybe you just want something to change, but you’re not sure what. That’s okay; you don’t have to figure it out alone. I love to help people navigate this unique healing process through honesty, authenticity, and non-judgement. We can work together to determine your goals, the changes you may want to make, and the kinds of therapy that might be helpful for you.

Education and Learning Disabilities Counsellors

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
