About

I welcome clients dealing with depression, anxiety and difficulty coping with stress in their professional and personal lives. Is work making you feel like "the salary isn't worth the pain and suffering"? Has the romance in your relationship flatlined? Lost the joy of parenthood? Feel like your family does not appreciate you? Feeling out of control? Confused about your sexuality? Has the light gone out of your life? I can help you find that raison d'être, joie de vivre again to help you once again ENJOY just being alive, being YOU!
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) goes to the root source of your problem - the thoughts that cause you to feel and act in ways that are counter-productive and harmful to your right to live your best life. I help retrain your thoughts to cultivate healthy skills that last a lifetime.
I offer a holistic approach using CBT and mindfulness techniques taking into consideration your lifestyle and psychosocial context. We will work together to create the most effective, personalized plan for you. I also use SFBT with clients who need brief therapy assistance for coping with a specific situation.
