Free 30 Minute Initial Consultation

I specialize in helping individual adults with a variety of issues including:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Challenges related to life transitions
  • Issues with self-esteem
  • Difficulty with emotion regulation/anger management
  • Impacts of ADHD

What therapy with me will look like:
  • We will explore what is keeping you stuck in the negative cycle you are in
  • We will seek insight into what is happening and develop a path forward
  • By focusing on your unique situation and building on your strengths, we will develop strategies and tools to free yourself and begin to create the life that you want
  • I will provide the safe space and compassionate perspective needed to work through what is happening and create change
  • Unhappiness, worry, and stress can be replaced by the confidence, ease, and enjoyment of life that comes from self-acceptance, greater freedom, and more balanced thinking and expectations

I use an integrative approach, finding what will work best for the individual to address the concerns that brought them to therapy. In doing so, I draw from the following types of therapy:
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Positive Psychology
  • Psychoanalysis
  • Solution-Focused Therapy

What to expect:
  • All therapy sessions are approximately 50 minutes long
  • Most sessions and are currently being conducted by phone or video, as many people find this more convenient – if this is the option that you choose, it is important to ensure that you are somewhere comfortable and private during the sessions, where you can focus on the discussion and speak freely
  • In person sessions are also available on limited days

Fee and payment information:
  • There is a fee of $150 (including HST) for each therapy session, which is due at the end of the session
  • Payment can be made via e-transfer or credit card
  • Upon payment, a receipt will be provided - if you have benefits that cover therapy with a Registered Psychotherapist, you will be able to submit your receipt to the insurance company for reimbursement

Education and professional affiliations:
  • Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University completed in 2017
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Certificate completed July 2021 through Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario since 2017
  • Member in good standing of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP) since 2017

A final note:The greatest contributor to positive change in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. Therefore, it is important to feel comfortable with your therapist. If you have any questions about my approach or about therapy in general, please do not hesitate to contact me to book a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
