Hello ! Starting therapy can feel overwhelming and confusing no matter what age you begin. It is the first step towards healing and learning to move forward and onwards with life no matter what challenges you may face. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where we can explore and process some of life’s challenges as they come your way. My lens includes client centered and strength based approach. I specialize in supporting individuals, children, adolescents and families through the complexities of life, some areas include: Grief and Bereavement, Eating Disorders, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Parenting, Trauma, cancer diagnosis, divorce and life transitions. I offer in person and virtual (video/phone) sessions as I believe access to counselling is key to dedication and consistency.

Collaboratively, I integrate a variety of evidence-based techniques including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Based Therapy (FBT), Motivational interviewing (MI), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Attachment Theory and Narrative Therapy.

More About Me… I have experience in the mental health field for over 10 years. Working in a variety of settings which include: inpatient psychiatric units, pediatric units, day treatment programs, Residential live-in treatment centers for children and youth, outpatient hospital programs, and hospice.

I hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology, a post graduate diploma in Child and Youth Work, a bachelors in Psychology and a diploma in Early Childhood Education, I have gained vast experience working with children, adolescents and adults through every stage of the life cycle and my goal is to help provide clarity to the complexities as we develop. Navigating our mental and emotional health is hard, thank you for trusting me with yours.
