At the heart of my practice is the belief that each of us can learn to face life’s challenges, move past painful experiences, and grow in ways we might not believe possible. I am committed to providing care grounded in an empathetic, non-judgemental, compassionate, evidence-based approach, ideally resulting in an environment of safety and trust. I aim to create a strong therapist-client alliance in order to take a collaborative approach in developing a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
I believe every person has inherent value, and is the expert of themselves, even if this doesn’t always feel true for one’s self at times. As such, I see my role as a small part of your wellness journey. I provide solution-focused counselling aimed at empowering others to develop tools to address challenges such as depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, dissociation, relationship issues, and low self-worth.
I have a master’s degree in social work, and utilize numerous modalities, including ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Narrative Therapy, IFS (Internal Family Systems), Mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy). Together, I hope we are able to develop the tools required to meet your wellness goals.
As a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Masters in Counselling Psychology, I hope to provide more than a welcoming and encouraging, safe place – I strive to make your goals our goals, and to make the appropriate steps to attaining what it is that brought you to seek counselling. Whether that means overcoming a dreadful anxiety, coming out of a hopeless depression, discovering who you truly are, building inner self-confidence, overcoming a performance difficulty as an athlete or musician, or learning how to stand up for yourself; I promise to stand with you on this journey.
My therapy involves a person-centered approach, along with psychodynamic and solution-focused counselling. I use techniques such as mindfulness, self-compassion, CBT, motivational interviewing, boundary and assertive training, and positive psychology.
I became a counsellor to make a real positive difference in this world and it can start with each person individually. My philosophy is to aide my client’s discover who they truly are, and how to live out that person to the fullest each day. So don't hesitate, this is your life and you are worth it! Give me a call for a free phone consultation.
A diverse work and personal history have taught me how to accept people where they are at. I understand that everyone is intertwined with their unique context and is doing the best they currently can.
We can only work within what we know and, as we expand our ways of knowing, we actively change our worlds. By engaging, genuinely and passionately with other people we create conditions that allow for growth that otherwise would not occur. Through past challenges I have learned the value of having a safe space to explore new ways of understanding, and I strive to help create that space for others.
I have primarily worked in engineering for the last decade but have also worked in sawmills, renovations contracting, mechanics, solar power, and park development. I’ve taught martial arts and self-defence, and have travelled to 30 different countries. I’ve lived the challenges of marriage and divorce, am a half-time single parent of two young children, and am constantly working to evolve.
