Are your symptoms of anxiety and trauma from the past coming up in your relationships? You might find yourself falling into the same patterns when you try to work through them on your own. That's why my practice involves guiding individuals and couples as they learn to navigate their triggers and emotions using coping skills. Whether it's managing anger, overcoming depression, challenging phobias, or reducing stress, my skills-based approach is centred on empowering clients to take control of their own well-being. Let's get you equipped with the tools you need to get started on your therapeutic journey!
My passion is sharing my counselling knowledge with clients to help them overcome challenging situations. I pride myself on my ability to break down abstract concepts and explain them in a relatable way, using quirky examples and metaphors. I am an open-minded and empathetic practitioner who believes that people are good-natured and capable of change.
The prospect of undergoing therapy can be daunting. Totally understandable! The only thing you have to worry about right now is scheduling a consultation for therapy. From there, you'll find it's easier to figure the rest out. If you have any other questions or concerns about starting therapy, send me a message and I'd be happy to address them.

We would complete an assessment during the first session to discuss things you want to work on in therapy. I place an emphasis on providing you with skills and strategies that you can use to achieve your therapeutic goals. I'll prepare a treatment plan for you based on the results from the assessment that will guide our sessions, though I'll adjust my approach according to your needs that day.
