About

Over the past 20 years, I have had the privilege of assisting many individuals, couples, children, youth and families to find effective approaches and solutions to the challenges facing them. My passion is to help individuals, couple's and families find healthy ways to cope with and grow from the challenges and adversities that life sometimes brings. I believe that all of us have an innate desire to move toward a healthier, happier way of being. Even seemingly unhealthy beliefs, feelings, and behaviours start to make sense and can change when explored with the help of a compassionate well trained professional.
Struggling with anxiety, depression, or feeling overwhelmed? Areas of specialty are anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, grief, anger, ADHD, and anxiety based issues in children, youth, and adults. Other areas of specialty include working with first responders and couples. Ask about our low cost brief therapy options for youth and adults.

Pal Counselling and Associates's Groups

Clinical Supervision Group

If you are a therapist looking to complete your requirements to become a registered psychotherapist with the CRPO, then this four session group supervision offering may be a good fit for you. As both a registered Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Psychotherapist, I am able to offer supervision in working with a number of different populations and modalities. I also have extensive training and background in treating trauma and attachment issues. If you would like more information about the group, and/or individual clinical supervision opportunities, please contact me.
