About

Being a teen, post-secondary student or an adult today can be tough. Anxiety, ADHD or low mood can make you feel stuck, stressed, overwhelmed or exhausted from trying to cope every day, but there is hope! Are you tired of feeling anxious, overwhelmed or down all the time? Are you constantly worrying? Maybe your social life, grades or job are being impacted. If you struggle with anxiety, low mood, self-esteem, social anxiety, life transitions, time management, ADHD, disabilities, peer/relationships issues, reach out for help today.
I will teach you practical strategies, including anxiety reduction strategies, so you can start feeling better as quickly as possible. We will work together to help you learn how to better manage your anxiety, ADHD or depression on a daily basis. I can help you live your life without your anxiety or mood influencing everything you do.
I have 19 years of experience working with students, teens and young adults. I am happy to connect with parents of struggling teens, who want to learn more about how I can help their child. I know contacting a therapist can be scary. Take the first step by contacting me by email or phone and I will guide your through the rest.
