About

My skill sets, interests and ongoing training give me the expertise to help individuals dealing substance abuse and addictions issues, anxiety, depression, marital issues, grief/loss, trauma, sexual/gender orientation challenges, emotional-dysregulation (i.e. anger outbursts, rapid mood swings), boundary issues (i.e. difficulty saying “no”), communication difficulties, shame (i.e. feeling like you can never do anything right, not being ‘good enough’), identity (i.e. impostor syndrome, role and place in family/community, handling life situation changes), and self-esteem.
I believe in utilizing therapy techniques that have been proven through research to be effective. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy to help with marital issues, communication and personal emotional issues. I use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help with anxiety, depression, and life management. I use Motivational Interviewing to help with addictions.
I know that every person moves at their own pace. Every person faces their own set of life pressures. Family demands, finances, work expectations, unexpected events (i.e., accidents, assaults, pandemics, deaths), and interpersonal relationships create a unique set of challenges. My goal is to provide you with the treatment shown to most likely help you.
