About

Are you struggling with issues related to your past? Maybe you are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, grief or loss? Or maybe you are struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss or adoption challenges? If so, clients come to see me with these kinds of concerns frequently. In sessions with me, you can expect to develop a trusting, collaborative partnership and feel supported as you discuss your experiences. I bring compassion and acceptance without judgement to every session. I can help you see that healing and growth are possible, regardless if its in-person or online.
Clients often come to me seeking relief from one or more specific problem they are currently experiencing. Others engage in therapy to better understand and resolve the root of the problem they are facing. I draw from a variety of approaches, however find EMDR Therapy, talk therapy and/or coping strategies can address most therapy goals.
My office, in the lower level of my home, with separate entrance, is private and confidential, regardless if you are attending in-person or online. I use a secure, encrypted online platform for video counselling. Please check out my website or contact me directly, to determine if I am the right psychologist for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
