I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space for you to make sense of the issues you may be facing right now.  I understand that we all cope in various ways and experience a range of emotions: anxiety, stress, grief, loss, depression, anger and confusion to name a few.  We will work together to find healthy ways of coping so that you can discover solutions that help you move forward towards your vision of a fulfilling life.

As a Registered Social Worker, I have experience working with a wide range of complex situations, including:


  • grief and loss (death, relationship breakdown, loss of employment)
  • mental health issues (diagnosed or undiagnosed) 
  • family issues (parenting, supporting the entire family through difficult times)
  • trauma (physical, sexual, emotional ~ including adult survivors of childhood abuse)
  • gender issues (questioning, coming out, transitioning, supporting partners/families of LGBTQ2 individuals).

In our work together, we will draw on a number of approaches that combine talk therapy and creative expression. My techniques bring together the best tools from a variety of therapeutic models: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy or Solution Focused Therapy. Our work will be tailored to your needs and goals.

I am a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I hold a Master of Social Work degree, a Bachelor of Social Work degree a diploma in Drug and Alcohol Counselling and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution and Mediation.

Before opening my private practice, I spent over a decade providing counselling services to adults, teens and children in various social service agencies and the public school board.

I look forward to working with people like yourself, as you gain the confidence and power necessary to live the happier life you deserve.

Life is not meant to be a struggle, nor is therapy meant to be hard. With my authentic, proactive approach we can start to bring about the changes you are looking for today.

It is time to make a difference to your life, and have the well being and success that you so deserve!
