I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy (diagnostic specific), in addition to evidence-based approaches such as motivational interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion, emotion-focused family therapy, and bereavement counseling.
I am passionate about people and their overall well-being. I work with individuals, families, and couples who are facing some of life’s tough realities such as the breakdown of a relationship, divorce, loss, grief, and bereavement. I also work with children and young adults who are transitioning from one phase in life to another and who are finding the change overwhelming and sometimes difficult to manage (i.e. social, parental, relational, etc...). My primary therapeutic approach is cognitive-behavioral and my specialties include depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, and bereavement therapy.

A key element in choosing a professional is the level of ease and comfort that exists between you and your therapist. I am flexible, easy to talk to and have great interpersonal skills. My belief is that change management and transformation occur when people make decisions that are strategic and focused. I can assist you in dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, abuse, poor self-image, family problems and other issues that are stopping you from 'living' your life. What about your children? Are they being bullied? Learning development problems? Exhibiting 'at-risk' behaviours? I can help!

I have helped clients dealing with depression, drug/alcohol issues, anxiety and family conflict.
I provide support and counselling depending on the issues that you feel that you need help to "sort out". I am very flexible and there are many ways that we can look at a problem and find various solutions that will " fit" for you. You are the architect of this discussion and if something does not "fit", we can go back to the drawing board and try other ways of confronting the issues.

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.

OPENINGS AVAILABLE Feeling alone, depressed, left out and afraid is a difficult place to be. Especially if no one understands what you are going through. You still have responsibilities (school, family , work and friends), but it's hard to get out of bed most days. If any of this sounds familiar than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) are two therapies that can be of use. CBT helps those who have symptoms that are not trauma based and CPT helps you process traumatic incidents that have left you riddled with anxiety, sadness and difficulty sleeping. Both therapies are good to suit different needs.

The program has also proven to be highly beneficial when conducted with couples and family members participating on their own.
Problem gambling thrives in secrecy and is often not addressed until it reaches a crisis level. Problem gambling is one of the most difficult behaviours to overcome because it presents some distinct and difficult challenges. I’ve specialized in treating problem gambling for over two decades. Essential to successfully overcoming problem gambling is understanding the powerful influence of particular principles of psychology and the role of non-monetary reinforcement. I encourage both those experiencing problems with gambling and those impacted by someone else's gambling to take advantage of my innovative approach and expertise.
