As a therapist and a parent, I understand how difficult it can be to watch your child struggle. Our natural instinct as parents is to help our children, however, without a road-map – these attempts often leave us running around in circles, feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and guilty that we don’t have all the answers. Therapy can be the road-map that helps you and your child reconnect with each other and work together to achieve a happy, balanced life.  
Currently, I support children, youth, young adults and their families who are coping with;
 -Anxiety attacks, panic attacks and Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour (OCD)
 -Feelings of being stuck, procrastination and/or trouble getting things done
 -Lack of motivation, lack of direction
 -Trouble getting things done
 -Low self-esteem
 -Lack of stress management skills
 -Coping skills
 -Problem relationships with family, friends or peers
 -Trouble building or maintaining boundaries
 -Major life changes and adjustments - for example, divorce, blended family, break-ups, moves, graduation, etc
 -Career and future planning
 -Test anxiety
 -Bullying (support for both perpetrator and victim) 
 -School Refusal   
For over 10 years, I have been working with youth, helping them find their own solutions to the obstacles and roadblocks preventing them from living their best life.  I offer in-person and online counselling services to my clients. 
 
As a therapist, I listen to my clients and help them develop the tools they will need to build a strong foundation for personal growth, such as increased self esteem, problem solving skills and positive self talk. It is my belief that therapy is not “one size fits all” and therefore it must be customized to each individual and family. For this reason, my practice is influenced by many therapeutic models and styles, including;

-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
-Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA)
-Personality Dimensions
-Developmental Assets
-Mindfulness

Most health insurance plans cover the services of a Registered Social Worker.  Check with your Human Resources office to determine if you are eligible for coverage.  I continue to be a member in good standing with the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OCSWSSW), the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and the Canadian Association of Cognitive Behavioural Therapists (CACBT).  This ensures that I am fully licensed and competent in my field.    I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best life.  Please contact me for a free 15 minute phone call to see if we would be a good fit for each other.
