I work with individuals, couples, and adult families. My approach is pragmatic, creative and compassionate. Counseling is a personal process, which means you need to be the ultimate decision-maker about what gets addressed and how it gets done. Together, we will work to tailor your sessions to best suit your needs and to meet your goals.

In my practice, most of the people I see are working to manage anxiety. Other individuals are looking for help in managing various mental health concerns like depression, stress, grief, or anger. Still, others are trying to work their way through life transitions like marriage, parenthood, divorce, empty nest, retirement and aging/death.To help them navigate these issues, I have trained in Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and most recently Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. As someone who believes in lifelong learning, I am continually looking for ways to update my skills and expand my perspective to make sure I am offering the most effective service to my clients.

I have over 20 years' experience in supporting and empowering clients. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Social Work from Memorial University and am a registered private practitioner with the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Social Workers (NLASW). I provide EAP services for Eastern Health, The Newfoundland and Labrador Public Service Commission and the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers' Association. Most private health insurance policies that endorse counseling with a Social Worker also cover my services.
