About

Making the first step and reaching out to professionals who can help may be an overwhelming experience. But if you find the right fit for you, it is well worth it and will lead to amazing results. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, anger issues, relationships, self-esteem, parenting, or just feel you need to explore yourself to make a change, you've come to right place. I am a therapist and counselor with an MSW from Wilfred Laurier University and M. Ed from Saint Leo University with special training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for mental health challenges at the University of Toronto (OISE).
My counselling practice is a place that will put you at ease, let you explore, reflect, search and discover without being judged. It is a place where you can feel heard, understood and valued. I use goal oriented approaches to help make changes and break free of negative patterns.
My clinic offers therapy for issues related to mental health (anxiety, depression, anger, etc.), relationships, parenting, eating disorders and often a combination of many issues. We use Cognitive-Behavioral & Solution-Focused approach, Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, DBT and EMDR to tailor therapy to meet each individual client's needs.
