With over 14 years experience as a therapist, and as a graduate of McGill and Lethbridge University specializing in Counselling Psychology, I am currently serving as a Therapist who works with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, panic, grief, loss, anger, body image, disordered eating, stress, burnout, caregiver stress, chronic pain, and acquired brain injury.
I use a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution-focused methods. My action-oriented approach provides support and practical feedback to help you effectively address 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. Also, I use a holistic wellness approach, as I believe that your overall lifestyle influences your mental health. Specifically, I will offer strategies to improve your bio-psycho-social well being. 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.

Hi there! I provide Counselling using several evidence-based and
therapeutic interventions, including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),Grief and Trauma Counselling, Bereavement Counselling, Life Coaching,WrapAround Facilitating as well as certification and practices in Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation and Expressive Art Therapy.
I have been counselling, coaching & supporting adults, adolescents, children, families and groups since 1989. I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues that include grief and loss, anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, anger management, domestic violence, sexual assault, addiction and a variety of other life transitional issues.
I understand that our past has influenced our present but it doesn’t need to dictate our future. My mission is to assist clients in building upon natural and hard-earned strengths and developing coping skills that will increase their ability to manage emotions effectively, improve self-esteem and better handle difficult life situations.
It is a privilege for me to be a part of my clients’ journeys towards achieving their goals. I believe that clients
know best where they want this journey to take them, and that with the right tools, compassionate support and
personal determination we can reach that destination.
