I am a clinical psychologist with 30 years experience. My clients come because they are sad, fearful, angry or grief stricken. Some feel empty, isolated, and lack meaningful connections with others. Some suffer from “Covid Aftermath” and need support in reconnecting with people and activities they once found pleasurable. Some are experiencing painful losses or care-giver fatigue. Some are “haunted” by past trauma. Some are driven by obsessions, compulsions and addictions that interfere with daily living. Seniors come to explore end of life issues and ease the sorrows and regrets that come with a life long-lived.

I have 5+ years of experience working with ADHD & Autism in children, teenagers, adults, seniors, families and couples.
As a neurodivergent person with ADHD myself, I know some of the difficulties you may face. If you have ADHD and/or are Autistic, you’ve probably spent many years trying to fight your own brain and force yourself to act “normal,” but find this never works in the long run. Or perhaps you have someone in your life who is neurodivergent, and are struggling meet their needs and your own. You may experience painful emotions, difficulty understanding yourself, and frustrating personal relationships. Navigating life can be overwhelming when you're neurodivergent, but I firmly believe there is hope, and I want you to feel hopeful too.

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.
