My practice is informed by a range of treatment models including: emotionally focused , cognitive behavioural therapy, spiritually-integrated psychotherapy, mindfulness-based therapies, and meaning-centred psychotherapy.
I work collaboratively with people willing to engage in self-reflection who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, self-esteem issues and interpersonal conflicts. From a stance of empathy and acceptance, I invite clients to practice self-compassion and aim to empower them to become their own agents of change and live more meaningful lives.

I practice using a mindful, client-centred, strength-based and solution-focused approach and am influenced by internal family systems (IFS), narrative, existential, and emotionally focused modalities, as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
My counselling style is rooted in authenticity, humility, empathy, and compassion. I am curious and open to the growth that can occur within a therapeutic alliance and understand that a relationship requires trust, a sense of safety, and mutual understanding. I believe in the importance of collaboration, genuine connection, creativity and spontaneity within the here and now of a session, and my intention is to walk with and alongside you as we remove barriers to health and happiness, establish or maintain a sense of well-being, and create positive change.

Is your child going through a difficult time, having trouble expressing feelings and/or communicating with others? Are they struggling with overwhelm, anxiety or difficulty regulating their emotions? I offer sessions to support your child in different ways: developmentally, emotions awareness and expression and increasing coping skills. The way your child perceives themselves and the world can make all the difference! We use creativity and talk therapy to explore and process thoughts and feelings, and together discover effective coping skills for daily support. It is not necessary to know how to play an instrument to participate.

Namaste! I provide individual, relationship and marriage counselling, in a nonjudgmental, relaxed environment. Over the last 35 years I have worked with individuals and couples guiding, teaching and helping them by using an eclectic approach, and a variety of different types of modalities depending on the particular needs of my clients. I also provide family mediation and relationship counselling for couples who have split. I am a sex therapist, working with all couples and individuals. I specialize in many areas, as I believe all issues are connected, so to treat problems in isolation is unrealistic and can be short lived.

In the aftermath of trauma so often we can be made to feel isolated and alone. You might be dealing with pervasive issues impacting your most important relationships, such as people pleasing behaviours, a lack of boundaries, and/or self-esteem challenges. It is my hope to create a safe space where all of this can be discussed and processed in a way that encourages you to move forward after all this pain. In reaching out for help you are taking the first step in securing connection and the possibility of post-traumatic growth.

Our humanity is shared in that we all experience stress, pain, and conflicts in our lives. Through small shifts, our relationships with others and ourselves can improve when we align our inner experience, thoughts, and behaviours with our authentic self. I like to approach therapy by helping you uncover the blocks that are keeping you from living as the absolute best version of yourself.

Emotionally Focused Counsellors
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Whitby Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
