I am a registered clinical social worker who has been practicing as a therapist for over seven years. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families of all ages and take a collaborative and strengths based approach. In my work as a therapist with both adults and children, I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with people to build on their internal strengths and skills while also developing new skills and perspectives to live a more balanced and fulfilling life. If you are finding that you are feeling stuck, not satisfied in your relationships, family life is difficult or you have had experiences that have left you not feeling like yourself, I would be more than happy to meet with you.
I have experience with a number of therapeutic modalities including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused and Narrative Therapy. We can determine what modalities would be most beneficial for you. Also, given the importance of the therapeutic relationship for success, I strive for openness, mutual respect and honesty.
It can take a lot of courage to take the first step towards getting help. If you are interested in learning more and taking that first step, you can set up a complimentary 30 minute session to discuss how we can best work together.
Do you find that you and your partner are stuck in an ongoing negative cycle and neither of you are happy in your relationship? Are you and your partner repeating patterns and you are unsure of why? Maybe you are contemplating whether you want to end your relationship? Please consider what can be gained from couple’s therapy where you and your partner can work through the issues that you are facing. Counselling can help you to gain a better understanding of yourselves and your relationship as well as the steps that each of you can take to have a more connected and loving relationship.
Child, Youth & Family Counselling
Are you finding that your child or teen is withdrawn or acting out at home, school or in the community? Do you find that you are frustrated and wondering what is going on with your child/teen? Do you want a better relationship with your child/children but are unsure of how to get there? Have you been considering whether your child might be struggling with anxiety, sadness or ADHD? Please consider the value of collaborating in therapy with your child/children or giving your child/teen a chance to meet a therapist alone to gain a better understanding of what is going on and what steps can be taken to make improvements.
