Let’s find out how I can help you!

Are you no longer able to manage like you used to? Are you dissatisfied in your relationship and feel unsure what to do next? Are you feeling angrier, sadder, or more irritable? 

Life can often send challenges our way that we aren't prepared for, which can cause us to feel stuck, scared, and lost. Ultimately, we are all looking to feel at ease in our own skin, fulfilled in our relationships, satisfied with our lives, and free to be ourselves. Therapy is a chance to step back from the way we have always done things so we can make sense of what is going on around and within us.
Here’s how I can help
I have many years of experience in the area of Mental Health and Addictions, and have provided psychological services in a variety of settings with clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. My therapy style tends to be direct. I will provide suggestions and won't simply sit across from you and quietly nod my head. At the same time, I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and accepting environment that encourages people to reach their goals.
I will provide you with an experience that is both warm and caring, but also enlightening and knowledgeable. We will work together to uncover unhelpful patterns and work towards positive change. I will help guide you to a place where you have greater confidence in your ability to manage challenges.
Therapeutic Approach
As a Registered Psychologist trained in Marriage and Family Therapy, I view interpersonal relationships from a systemic perspective and bring with me specific knowledge regarding couple and family systems. I believe that individuals are interconnected with those around us and are part of a much larger system. I believe that people do not function alone in life, and our difficulties can be addressed by looking at the dynamics of the groups we are part of. Moreover, I believe in cause-and-effect interactions over time and that past interactions can create unhelpful reactions in our present. As a systemic therapist, I seek to troubleshoot and solve problems. What is causing this individual/couple/family to be stuck? What nudge could create new movement in the ways they relate and interact?
I believe in using an integrative approach to therapy as each person’s needs are unique and different. I draw from several therapeutic modalities including:
  • Structural Family Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
  • Mindfulness-Based approaches
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Prolonged Exposure (PE)
  • The Gottman Method  

I have worked with a broad range of psychological issues, including but not limited to:
  • Depression                                 
  • Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Self-esteem
  • Emotional and Behavioural Regulation
  • Work-related stress
  • Life transitions 
  • Behavioural and Substance Addictions

Given my training in Marriage and Family Therapy I have a special interest in helping couples and families reconnect. I also help people with the following concerns:
