No matter your reason for being here, you'll be met with warmth, compassion, and a genuine desire to be by your side every step of the way.
I am passionate about helping to improve people's wellbeing and as a therapist I strive I strive to help individuals and families identify and use their strengths, acquire coping skills, and develop strategies to effectively manage stress, thoughts, and feelings and in turn live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
I am certified in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and incorporate other therapy approaches such as Dialect Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Play, and Art Therapy in my toolbox, which are all evidence-based approaches and techniques that can successfully help with depression, anxiety, relational and trauma-related issues, and more.
I work with adults, children, youth, and families address issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, separation and divorce, anger, self-esteem, life changes, and behavioural challenges. I believe that with the right tools and support, my clients can be empowered to take control of their lives and that they can not only survive but thrive.
I look forward to starting the work with you.
