Announcement icon I am currently offering secure video or phone therapy sessions, as well as safe in-person therapy sessions.
When life becomes overwhelming and turbulent, we can feel alone and isolated. I am here to weather the storm with you and help you find a place of solace and clarity. I take pride in helping clients see results by truly listening to you and your needs. Whether you’re hoping to process the stressors in your life, learn practical tools and strategies to overcome hardships, or discover your inner strengths and resiliency, I am here for you. I will work collaboratively with you to unpack the root of your problems, heal past wounds, and create healthier patterns of thinking, responding, and living.
I've been working in the mental health industry for over a decade with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, ADHD, life transitions, trauma and other mental health concerns. My experience ranges from outpatient clinics, to children's mental health programs, to developing treatment programs across Canada.
My practice is grounded in respect, integrity, real results, and genuine care for my clients. If you are hoping to make a positive change in your life, I encourage you to reach out today. Therapy can offer you guidance and support so that you can live a life of fulfillment, gratitude and happiness. We were never meant to go through life alone.
