I believe that we are all capable of making positive changes in our lives and my role as a counsellor is to help facilitate that process through warmth and empathetic understanding. Together we can work to identify meaningful and attainable goals, improve relationships and connection, decrease feelings of sadness, anger, loneliness and hurt, and develop self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness. I believe that the more that we understand our experiences, motivations, feelings, and needs, the more we can make deliberate choices about how we want to live.
My practice is informed by a range of different modalities, at the heart of which is a person-centered, trauma-informed approach. I appreciate that each person is unique and aim to provide an individually tailored approach to best suit your personality and needs. I work with adults coping with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, sexual assault/abuse, grief and loss, self-esteem, and identity.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist, Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) and member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I hold a Masters of Counselling from Athabasca University and an undergraduate degree in Life Sciences from McMaster University.
