About

Hi! Do you often feel overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety? Or “do you find it difficult to develop friendships and maintain positive relations?” “Do you experience sadness and loneliness?” “If so, come talk with me!” I am excited to work collaboratively with you on your journey to identify solutions to anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-confidence, relationship issues, and emotional dysfunction concerns; to develop coping strategies to build resilience to loss, grief, trauma, burnout, and daily activities. I will help you find meaning and purpose to live authentically as you develop self-confidence and improve self-esteem.
I have a Master of Social Work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University. My specialities are anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship, parenting, conflict, self-esteem, self-confidence, emotional dysfunctions and Christian counselling.
The therapeutic modalities that I primarily used are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Brief Solution-Focused Therapy with an underlying foundation of person-centered and strength-based approaches. In addition, I incorporate elements of Narrative therapy and the Laws of Health to improve body, mind, and spirit. Connect with me to make a change!
