Are you having difficulty making sense of depression, anxiety or stress, or feeling like you’re stuck? 


Sharing your story with a nonjudgmental counsellor who understands and respects you can be remarkably therapeutic. I am an experienced and caring therapist practiced in working with individuals, families and couples and I am here for you.


Reaching out

Reaching out and asking for help is often a brave and difficult first step. There are many reasons that people seek out therapy. I work to create a safe and supportive environment for all of my clients, so that they may begin to explore and understand themselves, their feelings, and their way of relating to others.


I care about my clients

Because I care about my clients, I have dedicated myself to working with people in navigating life changes and transitions. We are all unique so discovery of uniquely personal symptoms is paramount. 

If you feel you have symptoms of depression, anxiety, loss and grief, post natal depression, trauma or are experiencing anger, stress or low self-esteem I can help you. If you are experiencing family or relationship conflict and feel your family could benefit from family counselling I can also help you. Sometimes when caring for others we can overlook our own needs; I can also help caregivers manage care for loved ones while also caring for themselves.


My approach

My approach values the unique needs of each client, and I'll work with you to establish goals that are meaningful and attainable. Many of my clients come to me feeling stuck after having tried other ways of coping that just aren't working.

My therapy style incorporates a person-centred approach involving Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Meditation and Family Therapy.

Therapy is a collaborative process and a strong therapeutic relationship enables change to happen. I tailor my approach to meet each of my clients' unique needs


You’re strong

It shows great strength that you're interested in getting help. Together we'll chart a path forward that can help make you feel whole again and meet your goals. I look forward to talking with you!
