I work from a values and strength based model of practice, providing a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, body sensations and any struggles that may be getting in the way of living a meaningful life (defined by you). I provide customized treatment sessions-ensuring that we work together to reach your goals, desires and needs.

Therapy approaches that I apply include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT); Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ); and elements of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist (Ontario) who specializes in working with children, teens, parents, and families. My approach in working with clients is to provide a supportive and caring relationship within which they can explore and address issues meaningful to them, identify their psychological needs, and expand on their strengths to meet these needs. In my work with children and teens, whatever the issue we are addressing, I encourage the development of skills in self-reflection and effective communication to promote the capacity for positive engagement and healthy relations (e.g., family, peers), which are cornerstones of psychological well-being.

I use acceptance and commitment, trauma-informed and cognitive behavioural therapies to address issues with grief & loss, anxiety, chronic illness, relationships, childhood trauma, substance use, and identity.
Seeking therapy can be intimidating. Are you ready to talk to someone, but unsure where to start? Are you thinking, 'What's the point?' and 'No one can help me.' Are you worried about being judged? Criticized? You are probably feeling overwhelmed by these thoughts, and very alone. But what if you could talk freely and openly without being judged? What if you were offered practical tools to face your challenges? This is the space that I can create for you. I will use authenticity, respect, curiosity and kindness to help you confront and explore your challenges. I will help you build tailored strategies to confidently meet your goals.

I incorporate aspects of Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing skills and Mindfulness.
In life, we get many chances to rewrite our stories. The situations or events that have shaped your life thus far do not need to define you. Change and growth can be difficult when we feel like we are stuck. Together, we will work to make lasting change, gain clarity, grow, and live a more authentic life. Healing can be found when we develop a deeper relationship with self and others and the greater environment around us.

I have a strong interest in helping folks find self- acceptance , inner peace, and to gently discover their own authentic interests and needs.
I am a true believer in the human capacity to adapt, grow, and in the fact that it is possible to find genuine joy and happiness. I also know that that life is rife with adversity and that walking alone through challenge can push us to what feels like our limits. It is often in these moments that individuals choose to seek professional counselling supports and I know that this process can feel scary and overwhelming. With that, I would like to commend you on taking the first steps toward beginning your journey.

I implement techniques from cognitive-behavioural, narrative, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness-meditation based therapies.
Do you ever feel like you are your own worst critic? Do you have trouble ‘turning off’ the negative thoughts in your head? Or do you spend too much time worrying about the future or dwelling in the past? I work with adults who are experiencing low self-esteem, self-criticism, and anxiety. Putting the brakes on your busy life and slowing down to look inwards can help you from seeking distractions or unhealthy habits when feeling unwell. It takes courage to ask for help, explore meaningful questions, and demonstrate self-love. The way to self-love can have different meanings for each of us, depending on our life experience.

I especially understand the needs of those providing care to others--caregivers, first responders, faith leaders, and health professionals.

I often tell my clients that what they hear from me will be counter cultural. It is counter cultural in the sense that I talk about self- acceptance and worth regardless of size. I believe hope exists even when you can't see it, that mental health issues are not a sign of weakness and that I practice in a way that believes in change.

As a Perinatal Mental Health Certified (PMH-C) therapist, I integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, IFS ("parts" work), and EMDR, tailoring my approach to your unique experience.
You are not broken, although you might feel that way -- you are under stress; juggling family, relationships, and work. You may feel overwhelmed, stuck or constantly bombarded with self-criticism. Your big emotions or negative thoughts are running the show, and you're looking for ways to feel more centred and in control. Therapy provides a safe, compassionate space where we can tap into our own wisdom and learn how to show up in our lives as the people we want to be. I can help you make sense of how you got here, get clarity on the inner conflicts that are making you feel stuck, and find a clearer vision of your path to wellness.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Ontario or for an Ontario ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
