My style and approach to therapy is open, empathetic, and non-judgmental. I can understand how difficult it can be to open up to someone regarding challenges you are facing. As your therapist, it’s my job to listen, understand how you are feeling, and create a safe environment for you to speak freely.

We all need a safe space, and a person to hear, and understand us. I believe that we can tackle problems more effectively when we can discuss them openly and honestly. It’s my role to facilitate that conversation and create the pathway towards your preferred ways of living.

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.

Life, like counselling, is often challenging. I try to bring both humour and curiosity to both. Since 2008 I've been practicing professionally, offering careful, compassionate, and honest counselling that is trauma-informed, neurobiologically-informed, and that puts the humanity and autonomy of my clients first. For much of my professional career, and for many years beforehand, I've worked with folks in 2SLGBT+ communities, as well as folks who aren't. I've learned from my work with each client, and am a better counsellor thanks to them.

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is also sometimes a matter of opportunity”-Hippocrates While working with Individual and families who are dealing with many different kinds of mental health issues; from deep grief/bereavement, childhood abuse, anxiety and depression, I have been privileged to witness healing(s) that many never thought possible. By creating a safe space and working in a collaborative, compassionate manner I have supported many people on their journey of healing and growth. Healing it’s self is the journey, it takes time, commitment, patience and hope.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, where you as the client are the expert of you and your story, and as we work together to build trust and a relationship, I can lend my clinical skills to aid in achieving your therapeutic goals. My approach is grounded in the style of therapy called Motivational Interviewing, where I strive to be collaborative and empathetic in order to elicit behavioral change.

Relationships are hard. When things aren't going well, there's nothing more difficult than trying to deal with another person, especially someone you love. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, heartbroken and alone. It can get you questioning everything you ever thought was real about your relationship and wonder how you'll ever get things right side up again. Don't give up. I know it's not easy, but it can get better.

No Waitlist (week of November 28th). My approach to therapy is holistic and client-centered. As a therapist, I care to understand each person uniquely and hold space for you where you feel heard, understood, and acknowledged so you can meet your goals, heal & grow. I am drawn toward experiential, cognitive behavioural, and trauma-informed modalities; however, I believe in drawing from therapeutic strategies that fit the needs of each client.

We all feel lost sometimes or face life challenges and relationships that can feel overwhelming. Life is tough, but I believe we all have the ability to overcome hardships. Together, we can explore your concerns and past traumas, working towards lasting change that helps you progress toward the person and future you desire and deserve. I believe in a collaborative approach that empowers and motivates you during the therapeutic process. It's important to me to not only understand and address your concerns throughout therapy, but also to remind you of your strengths and capacity to contribute to goal setting and problem solving.

Life is full of challenges. Sometimes our past and present life circumstances make it hard to manage them. Relationships, life transitions, trauma, fears, grief and loss, parenting worries, anxiety or low self esteem can all trigger feelings of distress and rob you of joy. When it feels hard to cope, it helps to talk. You don’t have to navigate these challenges by yourself. I can support you. You are not alone.
