I would like to welcome you and to commend you for taking responsibility for your health and wellness. For over 30 years, I have empowered clients to successfully manage a myriad of personal problems and challenges for an improved quality of life. I always felt the pull towards the helping of others and decided to follow this dream/calling in my early 20s. I am now a registered social worker, psychotherapist, life coach and ADHD specialist. I love what I do and I am deeply committed to providing compassionate support in a safe and neutral environment.  
I draw on extensive experience to customize treatment that will address your mental, emotional, spiritual, relational and social needs. Unlike many counsellors who only focus on life issues, my expertise in life coaching is an additional specialty that will benefits you. My proven counselling techniques and practical life coaching tools provide quick results and will equip you with the know-how to self-manage your life more effectively.
To treat the entire person, I will help you get a good understanding of your issues. You want to know why you are depressed or anxious. You want to know why you struggle with anger, an addiction, an affair or low self-esteem. Once you have a good understanding of the issues, I will help promote your natural life skill abilities.
I found that the majority of people need life skills training, whether it's dealing with communication, stress, anger, resolving conflicts, an addiction or looking to improve their relationships.  
I know you have an innate ability to solve problems, but often you feel overwhelmed and cannot solve the issues alone. If you are struggling then don’t wait until it is too painful. Lets begin the journey to self-discovery, healing, and growth so you can live the life you were always meant to have. Call me or go to my website and book an appointment online.
Therapy with me has many benefits which include: improving communication with your spouse, overcoming depression and anxiety, better managing your ADHD, more self-confidence, healing emotional wounds, hurts and hangups, restore a relationship after an affair, overcoming an addiction and parenting tools for less battles.
I specialize in individual, couple, and family therapy, including ADHD, depression and anger. After having my own children with ADHD, I really wanted to help children, adolescents, adults and their families with the same issues. I use family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and ADHD coaching to help with these issues.
Furthermore, I have extensive training in specialized areas of counselling/coaching (but not limited to):
  • Individual, Couple and Family
  • Child, Adolescent and Adult ADD/ADHD
  • Anger Management/Conflict Resolution
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Abuse, Spousal and Family Violence
  • Wounded/Injured Emotional Healing
  • Psychiatry and Mental Health
  • Alcohol/Drug Abuse
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Employment Issues
  • Vocational/Career
  • Spirituality

Cost: $150 per 50 minute session. This applies to individuals and couples. I provide an invoice. If you are struggling financially, a sliding scale is possible in a case-to-case basis. 

The psychological services fees are often partially or fully covered by extended health insurance plans (eg. Great-West Life, Sunlife) and third-party providers (EAP, WSIB). See my website for more information.
