With over 12 years experience as a therapist, and as a graduate of McGill and Lethbridge University specializing in Counselling Psychology, I am currently serving as a Counsellor who works with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, panic, grief, loss, adjustment, anger, body image, disordered eating, stress, burnout, caregiver stress, chronic pain, and acquired brain injury.
I employ a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and solution-focused methods. My action-oriented therapeutic approach provides support and practical feedback to help you effectively address personal life challenges. I explore past events only as they are relevant, but will not dwell on the past; instead, I am interested in helping you stay in the present and focus on moving towards creating the kind of future you look forward to living. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.
I take a holistic wellness approach, as I believe that your overall lifestyle influences your mental health. I will address and offer strategies to improve your bio-psycho-social wellbeing. For example, proper nutrition, quality sleep habits, benefits of regular exercise, the importance of a healthy friend/family support network, and leisure activities that are rewarding and re-energizing.
