I specialize in supporting adults, seniors, families, and couples living with PTSD, anxiety and depression, substance/alcohol mis-use, first episode psychosis, and in need of ongoing one-on-one counselling, caregiver support and/or group counselling.
If trauma, abuse, and mental illness have left you feeling like you’re lost in the darkness, you’re not alone. It’s perfectly natural that the difficult emotions and loneliness you feel have cast a shadow over your life. But though the darkness may feel crushing, there is hope and light. The truth is your painful past does not mean that you are stuck with an unhappy future, and though your mental health might feel like it has taken charge of your life, it does not define you. As we work together, I’ll help you discover that you are much more than your circumstances, that your life matters, and that you have a powerful purpose.

Drawing from my background in trauma-informed care, harm reduction, and social justice, I specialize in addressing a range of challenges, such as depression, anxiety, relationships, sexuality and gender identity exploration, parenting, trauma, substance use, self-harm and existential questions.
In my practice, I provide a supportive space where we can explore your unique journey, helping you to get to a place of understanding and self-compassion. I believe this is the most reliable foundation on which to pursue change, which might include increasing your ability to manage difficult emotions and thoughts, improving your connection with others, working through past experiences, or making important life choices based on your values.

Sometimes life is hard. Maybe you’re going through a change or feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you’re wondering how your relationships could be different. Maybe you’ve lost your creative spark. Maybe you feel alone and you wish others understood your inner life. I’m here to work with you. We’ll talk about what’s happening—what feels right and what doesn’t. I’m interested in knowing you, with empathy, care, and compassion. Together we’ll explore relationships, feelings, patterns, and possibilities. As a former academic and a practicing artist, my approach to therapy is creative, thoughtful, and focused on your potential.

What do I really want? and--how am I going about NOT getting it? These simple questions stand at the gateway of personal freedom. Overwork, addiction, anxiety, depression tell us that we have turned away from life's important questions. Therapy can help. More than just relieving symptoms, good therapy allows us--with time and courage--to see our problems as opportunities, and to discover what's really important--living life with a sense of freedom and possibility.

Life can be challenging and is often stressful. Multiple stress factors affects the quality of life and create psychological disorders. You may experience those challenges in a number of different ways: difficulties adjusting, confusion about direction and motivation in life, struggles at work, in relationships etc. As a result, you may feel anxious, depressed, angry or overwhelmed at times and need a better viewpoint to deal with those feelings and problems.

Currently accepting clients for Wednesdays during regular business hours. One of the hardest parts of therapy is finding the strength to get started so congratulations on taking that first step! I practice from a non-judgmental, empathetic perspective. I most frequently work with older adolescents and adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and life transitions including transitioning to postsecondary, relationship beginning/end, and job beginning/end. One of my specialties is working with postsecondary students who are experiencing difficulties with adjusting to school.

Using evidence based therapies and a collaborative, integrative approach, I help you learn tangible skills and strategies that could be used to successfully manage unwanted behaviours, anxiety, depression, stress, regulate difficult emotions, tolerate and cope through distress, build self-confidence and develop and maintain relationships that last.
Thinking that you might need some help learning how to process, manage and cope with what happened to you? Or perhaps you might desire to learn some skills to help you grow, deal with or overcome a particular struggle or fear. Whatever it is, the idea of therapy may also have you feeling a little freaked out and it might feel a little weird. My goal is to lessen those feelings and make this process as comfortable as possible. Whatever your goals are, you can trust me to help guide and walk with you through your journey towards healing and living a happier, healthier more fulfilling life that is all your own.
